Observer – Geek gets it: Like FDR, Rove and Bush have sought to fundamentally change the way Americans think about the role of government. They have brought religion into political life like never before. They have merged the interests of the administration with those of big business, especially oil. They have cut taxes for the rich. They have abandoned any pretence of isolationism in foreign policy for a doctrine of pre-emptive war. They have mastered the art of attacking a political opponent and cowed the media.

Please let this week be the week that reality and accountability finally start to creep back into politics.


I can’t help but think of evil twin Alastair Campbell, who quietly ‘retired’ when the heat was on… but returned to work with even greater stealth a few months later.

Rove and Campbell are cockroaches… they scatter when the light is turned on, but persistence and determination is required to finish them off. Does anyone have a hefty slipper handy?
