Former Sec. of State Donald Rumsfeld had to flee France because citizens there want to prosecute him as a war criminal. If this had happened even ten years ago, it would have been front page, top of the news hour. Today, in the age of Dubya, it barely gets noticed. USA as banana republic. No one expects better. Shame that.
The USA edges closer and closer to 1984 every single day. The outrage over this inexplicable event was subdued. Fake news conferences should give every single American, no matter their political bent, pause to finally admit that certain elements of the Bush Administration are so deeply steeped in incompetence and anti-democratic hubris as to be laughable and damnable at the same time. Paddy Chayefsky is rolling in his grave.
Sadly No! unveils a much needed new award, The Medved!
