Bush's Brain is Only 2 Miles from My House Tonight

Karl Rove, aka Bush's Brain, has been invited by the Champaign County Gross Ol' Party's Lincoln Day celebration.

From the CC GOP website:

“Our goal this November is to challenge every Democrat in all federal, state and local races. It is a privilege and honor to have Karl Rove come to Champaign County to assist in our efforts,” said Jason Barickman, Chairman of the Champaign County Republican Central Committee.

Rove’s visit is part of his book tour promoting his forthcoming memoir, “Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight,” scheduled for release March 9.

‘Courage and Consequence’ is a candid and behind-the-scenes view of some of history’s turbulent and momentous years. It tells how President Bush got to the White House and what happened during his consequential presidency. It’s a frank account of what I witnessed and my often-controversial role,” Rove said."

I agree it probably was a controversial role, considering nearly 5000 men and women are dead from the Iraq war, and thousands of troops still stuck there. I don't think Lincoln would have picked this kind of fight for the good of our country, which is bankrupting our government when we could have had universal health care.

If only this had really happened:

Rove should have been arrested and tried for treason for outing a CIA officer.

Mr. Benny and I are planning to have dinner out of town this evening, to say the least. I don't think I eat my dinner, knowing Karl Rove is crapping only 2 miles from my house.

A Couple of Changes at Benny's World

Hi Readers,

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately. I've been busy helping Mr. Benny get ready to move to our Plantation, FL rental condo. Takes up a tremendous amount of energy.

Couple of changes at Benny's World in terms of the links. I have added Rep Alan Grayson's website. Alan Grayson is the most progressive member of the House next to Dennis K and supports the public option for health insurance reform. He's also very funny. He did an eloquent smackdown of Sarah Palin recently when she went to Orlando and criticized him. He also blogs at the Daily Kos, which is really kewl.

JREG bit the dust and no longer exists. It appears that JFrew, the blog owner, has redirected the URL to Andrew Young's book, and since I have no interested in publicizing the work, I have removed the link altogether. I'm sorry it went away, but I don't blame the owner either for disbanding it out of respect to Elizabeth Edwards.

In late April, I will be making some other changes to this blog in order to reflect the values of a former Edwards ideas supporter and one that appreciated Elizabeth more than John in the first place. Hopefully, I will have more time to blog then.
