As the Republican convention opens the GOP is hiding it’s real face from the public. They trot out McCain and Schwarzenegger to put a pretty face on the pig. The neocons are being pushed into the background as they try to pretend to be reasonable.
If the GOP were honest they would be trotting out the real power behind their party. Ken Lay of Enron would be a keynote speaker. The Reverend Sun Mung Moon would be in prime time. Why not have John Ashcroft talk about civil liberties? Lets get Rummy to talk about why torturing prisioners is a good idea. Prince Vandar should speak about why high oil prices is good for America. Where’s Tom Delay? Where’s Newt? Where’s Jerry Falwell? Where’s Pat Robbertson? They should have a representative for Haliburton there – oh wait – they do have one. And – some of Bush’s business partners in the bin Laden family.
I need to turn this into a letter to the editor.
