Connect the Dots... La, La, La, La

In the future, our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will look back on all of this, and wonder how we could have possibly been so stupid.

Olbermann runs down the list of fearmongering by the Bush Administration. I think it's very interesting to see how quickly the UK arrests have disappeared from the news (although they're still red, red meat for the bobbleheads), and watching the reactions of people in the airports. The news reporters were all over the airports recently, and I don't know about you, but the only reaction I heard was: "No, I'm not scared. It's annoying, but what can you do?"

It looks like we've finally reached a saturation point with Terrorist Fearmongering, and it's about time. The UK arrests resulted in a minor hiccup in Bush's approval ratings; not the several points we would usually see in this case. Cheney's usual boogeyman warnings seem to have backfired on him. And fortunately, people don't seem to be paying the slightest bit of attention to this nonsense idea that the Lieberman loss and "aiding the enemy" are connected in any way, shape or form.

While Bush continues to flap his arms and insist that we should all be scared shitless, and no doubt pissing off Scotland Yard with flapdoodle like this:
"We disrupted a terror plot, a plot where people were willing to kill innocent life to achieve political objectives," Bush said.
(Ahem. We?)
... it would appear that finally, people are beginning to wake up and realize that the people "plotting" to "achieve political objectives" are the lying bastards in the Bush Administration.

Keep circulating the truth.

(There's a crazy rhythm comin' from cross-post land...)
