Burned out on Bush

In today's Washington Post, Byron York says what many if not most Republicans privately feel but are afraid to state openly: There is deep discontent with The Prez among the very conservatives who should be his most loyal supporters. As one of the reasons for this, York cites the immigration deal with Ted Kennedy "that leaned too far toward amnesty for illegal immigrants." Well, that is certainly true. He also argues that the commutation of Scooter Libby's sentence failed to satisfy The Base, which if true shows how thin the ice Bush is standing on. Unless Republicans manage to speak candidly to one another about what has gone wrong in this administration and within the GOP, chances for holding on to the White House in 2008, much less regaining control of Congress, appear to be fading. In any case, there is not much hope left for getting anything serious done during the last 18 months of the prematurely "lame duck" Bush administration.

blog highlights

NOTE: Thus far, only blog posts related to politics and baseball are included in this list.

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
