Which Clinton? What do they have to gain? Our government (UK) are just as bad, back stabbing when the worlds on it’s knees. These bloody people need shaking. Is there no such thing as being united?

The Republican Party in the US seems to be cementing their reputation, for once and for all, as the party of hate. Watching them twist themselves in a frenzy, spewing their foul venom would be entertaining if it wasn’t for the fact that there are many who are listening, and believing.

Damn the haters.

By the way, on Guantanamo, great column by David Brooks a few weeks ago:

“When Cheney lambastes the change in security policy, he’s not really attacking the Obama administration. He’s attacking the Bush administration. In his speech on Thursday, he repeated in public a lot of the same arguments he had been making within the Bush White House as the policy decisions went more and more the other way.”

“As for the treatment of terror suspects, Jack Goldsmith has a definitive piece called “The Cheney Fallacy” online at The New Republic. He lists a broad range of policies — Guantánamo, habeas corpus, military commissions, rendition, interrogation and so on. He shows how, in most cases, the Obama policy represents a continuation of or a gradual evolution from the final Bush policy.”

They are coming out of the woodwork because they have nothing to offer but mailing teabags to people, and, well, the intellect and witty rhetoric of Sarah Palin.

@Bobbydavid Sorry, dude, it’s just you.

Well at any rate it aint me. I put value on what also comes out of a woman’s mouth, not just what (theoretically anyway) can go in.

I’m British so to be honest, I’ve not paid any attention to what she’s ever said. I had her mouth put aside for other noble causes
