Bush's America - we now randomly brutalize people trying to visit America. The Bush regime will be known for turning America into an incompetent Nazi-like state. Fascism without the trains running on time as the corporate friends of politicians don't actually have to know what they are doing.
Andrew Sullivan has an astute observation. According to Bush McCain wasn't tortured. In fact, does McCain believe he was not tortured as he now approves of Bush's detention and interrogation policies? Or does he just feel we need to torture others like he was tortured?
Cafferty no likes McCain and Bush and is very vocal about it. CNN is interesting to watch when he is on.
CNN: Wholesale inflation saw prices rising over the past 12 months by 9.8 percent. Looks like the BLS fakery is breaking down. I think it will ease but remain high the rest of the year as Saudi Arabia and the oil companies/speculators try to keep oil prices low to help the GOP in November.
Back to School Lists at Wal-Mart are fake. Other stores lists also look suspect. Even though they have the name of the school it may include banned items, not include required items. Totally false advertising. Some attorney general should investigate this. Update - still fake.

Democrats ignore a big winning issue - the environment. I have blasted Nick Lampson over this, everyone but the battiest wing-nuts wants a cleaner world and the Bush/GOP policies have been a disaster. The Republicans in the House and Senate have even prevented alternative fuel credits from being renewed.
Fay will boomerang back to the Gulf. My friend Clif's model predicted this.
Housing market - still falling. In Houston, prices rise to record but sales still declining. The news was very bad for the low end homes.
Sales for homes in the $80,000 to $150,000 range plunged 21.8 percent in July compared with the same month last year.Keep the heat on Obama by building the grassroots.
And the median price of a home in that segment — the largest in the local market — was down about 1 percent, according to the Realtors' report.
"That lower-end stuff is really suffering," said Michael Levitin, the association's chairman and principal of HTownRealty.com.

AP calls Lieberman a "prick".
