Back to the Good Old '80s

With folks like Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Elliot Abrams, John Negroponte and so many other luminaries from the Reagan/Bush years running the show for us (and a host of others "advising", such as Richard Perle, Wolfy and like-minded geniuses), it shouldn't be a surprise that they have thawed the "death squads" strategy from the meat-freezer where they keep Bill Casey's head stored for revivification.

And yet, I was surprised.

I know that there are plenty of people happily willing to do "whatever it takes" to achieve whatever they currently want. I understand that "winning is the ONLY thing" for these same myopic and power-drunk robots of the American Way.

But have they heard the one about the babies and the bathwater? Or pot and the kettle? The glass houses and stones? What goes around comes around?

There are no laws for the neo-cons. For W and friends, law is for anyone who can't steal an election, can't take a bribe, can't call dissenters unpatriotic and can't use confidential information to strike back at those who dare dissent.

But in the 80's, some heads did roll in Iran-Contra, which also slowed down the Reagan/Bush machine mightily. If it weren't for Dukakis' issues, '88 should have been a gimme (as well as '00 and '04, lost by candidate issues, electoral robberies, and nothing else).

In the 00's, so far, we get Libby's head. But, The Raw Story, one of my favorite blogs, says that Rove's head is all but plattered, which would bring an end to our 80's revival before we have to put shoulder pads in our suits, let alone start digging up the new victims of our new death squads, who the apologists will falsely laud as heroes, using terror and murder to secure freedom.
