Finally, there's Powell supine acceptance of Foggy Bottom's conventional wisdom on every subject, forgetting that the foreign service isn't supposed to make our foreign policy; it's supposed to carry out the president's policies.
Who should replace him? Zell Miller.
[. . .]
Yup, Zell Miller for SECSTATE. What's he gonna do, challenge Schroeder and Chirac to a duel? Fucking asshole.

If anyone needs to work to “bring the country together” it’s those on the left who have divided it so badly. Those who sought to destroy this great man should get down upon their knees and beg the victors for mercy. And maybe, just maybe, we’ll let a few of them linger on for the simple reason that they amuse us. My life’s goal is to see the Democratic Party virtually obliterated and left as a rump of people like Stephanie Herseth who both mostly agree with us anyways and are easy on the eyes.
That’s the future of the Democratic Party: providing Republicans with a number of cute (but not that bright) comfort women. [my emphasis]
Let’s face a hard truth: this was the bitterest Presidential campaign in living memory. The Democrats and their allies staked everything on the defeat of this President. All of the resources they had accumulated over a generation of struggle were thrown into this battle: and they have failed. Despite all of their tricks, despite all of their lies, the people have rejected them. They mean nothing. They are worth nothing. There’s no point in trying to reach out to them because they won’t be reached out to. We’ve got their teeth clutching the sidewalk and out boot above their head. Now’s the time to curb-stomp the bastards.

Do you think Mr. Yoshida is jealous? I mean, being that his side won and he still can't get laid. Doesn't the Bible say something about patronizing 'comfort women'? Wingnut hypocrite. Oh, and any time you want to come for my woman and try to curb stomp me, let me leave you with the words of your Dear Leader. Bring it on, bitch.
Oy gevult! Links via Atrios.
And this via Pandagon:
Not that this is your source for breaking news, but just because it feels good to write it, CNN is reporting that John Ashcroft has resigned.
Killjoy Atrios notes (correctly...sigh),
Sadly, it's not a moment for jubilation. They'll likely find someone who's actually much more competent about throwing away civil liberties and who is more popular.
Well, it's still a moment for jubilation.
MORE: And, of course, we thought we were rid of Ashcroft when he lost his Senate seat, and he came back, more powerful than ever. So, what, Chief Justice Ashcroft?
Talk about drinking the Kool-Aid. The man who lost his Senate seat to a dead man [Mel Carnahan] should be a Supreme Court Justice? Yeesh.
DemVet disassembles more of Ledeen's bullshit and Jo ain't happy. Neither am I after reading it. Ledeen needs a grenade shoved up his ass.
