The whole world holds it's breath, waiting, waiting. Will the Bush administration really come crashing down, bringing what's left of the RNC with it?
Will Iraq settle down and become the Democracy Dubya said it would become, once the votes for the Constitution are in?
Prissy thinks the first is more likely than the last.
And the ones left standing for Dubya? Be kind but firm with them, they were unduly influenced. Their faith was misused for an agenda. Google "Battered child syndrome" and "Stockholm syndrome" for more. Hot Links

"I reject the constitution. It includes many things that serve federalism and the division of Iraq. It includes many things that do not serve Iraq."
"Say 'yes', what for? Say 'no', what for? We want to understand the constitution before giving a 'yes' or 'no' vote. Unfortunately, since the constitution was drafted, we have been hearing conflicting reports from various political parties saying this article should be changed and that does not serve Iraqis. We do not even know what these articles are, to vote for or against them."
"The constitution is a good thing - it decides the fate of Iraqis. We should not stay lost. We support it and we all agree on it. We will vote for the constitution."
"Any Iraqi, if a real and true Iraqi, should reject this constitution as it aims to divide Iraq. If an Iraqi citizen is honest, he does not like his homeland to be divided."

About the Mayor race in New York:
nynewsday.com/news/local/newyork/politics/nyc-ferr1014,0,2767805.story?coll=nyc-homepage-breaking2 Bill Clinton to stump for Ferrer
Excerpt: An appearance by Clinton, who is still well-liked in the city, could boost Ferrer's campaign with less than a month to go before the election. A Marist College poll released this week showed Mayor Michael Bloomberg easily out-pointing Ferrer.
Some observers have suggested that Democratic leaders have been slow to help Ferrer in what is one of the higher-profile races of the season. But in the past week, Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean and former Sen. John Edwards, a 2004 Democratic vice presidential candidate, have made public appearances with him.

Excerpt:Dear Randi Rhodes,
You were talking today about our poll on impeachment, so Bob Fertik called in to speak with you. But you spent the whole conversation attacking the idea of impeachment, claiming that it couldn't succeed and would therefore make any Democrats who tried it look stupid.

DHS Is Losing a Coordinator
Joshua Filler, director of the Office of State and Local Coordination for the Department of Homeland Security and before that a member of Rudolph W. Giuliani's cabinet when he was New York mayor, is heading off to the private sector, entertaining offers from consulting firms here and in New York.
Prissy understands this guy actually knew what he was doing....no wonder he's leaving government service. Our loss.
