Focus, Focus, Focus

President Bush has selected John G. Roberts Jr. to be the newest Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

MEMO TO DEMOCRATS - You can't stop the President. Had he chosen to nominate Rick Santorum's dog, a filibuster might work. Short of that, or the nomination of James Dodson, Bush is going to get whomever he wants. If Democrats want to change this dynamic, they need to figure out a way to get elected to national office. Change the balance of power in Congress and place a Democrat in the Oval Office, those accomplishments will make a difference in the make-up of the court.

Exposing the right wing extremist who are running our government and shining a light on the perversion of democracy directed by people like Karl Rove will give Democrats a chance.

The Supreme Court is a distraction. It’s the war....That's what Plamegate is all about. Ask Billmon:

...there are still limits, at least for now, on a PR strategy based on the propaganda playbook originally developed by the two Joes (Stalin and Goebbels). And that's some comfort -- even if the Plame scandal isn't in the same category as ginning up a phony WMD threat or turning an entire war into a closely held corporation.
It's the war!
