Headlines - Wednesday Oct 3

"It was so easy," said Brown, "I walked right out of the checkpoint with a Nintendo Wii in my hand. Nobody said a word."
They're cutting @MittRomney loose. He has bigger problems than a ten point deficit in Ohio. His wealthy donors are ceasing their support and concentrating instead on down-ballot races, trying to save some republican seats before it's too late.
Also, Ohio republicans are bailing on the party in general because they're sickened by the hatred and vitriol and coming to the realization that their party is not loyal opposition, in fact, it isn't even sane.
Allen West is the most loathesome and reprehensible piece of human offal in the entire Congress -- and that is no mean feat in a body that has Louie Gohmert, Michele Bachmann, Darrell Issa, Joe Walsh and Todd Akin. He is behind in the polls and has come out with a new ad that shows the mug shot of his opponent when he was arrested for a fight outside a nightclub when he was 19 years old, in 2003. He juxtaposes his own deployment to Iraq and the words "Two men. A country in crisis. You decide." Maybe Patrick Murphy ought to make an ad telling voters that West was forced to resign from the Army or face a court martial for using torture tactics against an innocent Iraqi.
Don't look now, but Eric Cantor is poised to lose. The smarmy little weasel and only Jewish republican in the entire Congress is in the fight of his political life with a retired Army Colonel named Wayne Powell. In their debate on Monday night, Powell tore Cantor a new one, even mocking him openly and deriding him for being an ideologue and owned by special intterests. He called him out of touch, said he had been in DC so long that he doesn;t even know what a small business is anymore "unless it's a hedge fund." Then he accused Cantor of embracing "pixie dust politics" and mocked his small-government philosophy. "You don't like government," he said. "You should just resign and then I'll take over."
Famous for pushing the United States into a costly war in Iraq based on wildly false intelligence — criticized U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice for being wrong about what caused the recent attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
Rice had said that the anti-Islam video that sparked protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was also the catalyst for the Libya attack, an assessment that the Obama administration soon after acknowledged was not correct.

Without any hint of irony, Rumsfeld said last night on Fox News that he was amazed that she could be so wrong, adding, that "has got to be embarrassing":

RUMSFELD: I watched the presentation, and I thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast and that authoritatively and be that wrong.

VAN SUSTEREN: Do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? Because I thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the U.N. would be making that appearance right after that event. I would have expected some other member of the administration, not the ambassador to the U.N.

RUMSFELD: I agree. It would have been more likely that someone from the cabinet or the White House staff or the NSC staff might have said something. It may very well be that she was already scheduled and they just used her. But her — her presentation was demonstrated to be inaccurate within a matter of hours, which has got to be embarrassing.

I guess ignoring the warnings prior to 9/11 and then relying on intelligence from people like Curveball to start an illegal and immoral war in Iraq isn't embarrassing.
