Evil GOP Bastard of the Month

While it's possible that he's  too dumb to be truly evil, our readers have overwhelmingly selected Dub as Evil GOP Bastard of the Month.  We salute the
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of oligarchic and corporate interests and absolutist religious groups. 
Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!

Gore issues blistering indictment against the Bush administration
I
n a hard-hitting editorial in the New York Times (free registration required) Al Gore fired the opening salvo in the 2004 presidential derby. Touching on many of the issues presented on evilGOPbastards.com, Mr. Gore writes:

"The problem is not that Mr. Bush and Dick Cheney picked the wrong advisers or misunderstood the technical arguments, but that their economic purpose was and is ideological: to provide $1.6 trillion in tax giveaways for the few while pretending they were for the many, and manipulating the numbers to make it appear that the budget surplus would be preserved. It was pre-Enron political accounting." 

Right on, Al!  We hope that the
Dems replay the 2000 debates where Gore accurately predicted the catastrophic results of Bush's economic plan - foolishly derided as "fuzzy math" by the GOP standard bearer and his flacks.

'War fever' grips capitol
In a continuation of the "Ready…fire…aim!" theme we presented in our last installment, the drumbeat for war with Iraq continues in Washington. However, there have been a few in Congress noting the need for the administration to "make its case" for war.  This will be difficult to do.  Barring any convincing evidence of collusion between Iraq and Al Qaeda in the September 11 attacks, there simply is no casus belli - other than a craven Bush political ploy to distract attention from our rapidly cratering economy as well as revelations about his and Cheney's shady business practices.

One would hope for a minimum level of coherence in US foreign policy, especially in the lethal application of our war-making prowess.  Alas, Karl Rove seems to be calling the shots in foreign affairs, in addition to being the "brain" behind GOP domestic policy.

Look at the facts:

1) Saddam Hussein's military has been decimated
2) He does not control his own airspace.
3) He is not an Islamist, and is hated and distrusted by the radical, bloodthirsty mullahs
4) He has not breached international law since the Gulf War
5) When he attacked Iran in the early 80's, he did so with our blessing and assistance
6) When he invaded Kuwait, it was with the tacit guarantee from the US ambassador to Iraq that the Bush (I) administration would view it as an "internal" matter for Iraq.

But Iraq is developing weapons of mass destruction!  This is almost certainly true.
But it is difficult for the West to deny Iraq the very weapons that we, as well as Israel, have deemed crucial to our national defense.  Furthermore, can anyone argue that nukes in the hands of Saddam Hussein are more dangerous than nukes in the hands of the Iranian ayatollahs - which are most certainly being

developed?  While the Iraqi and Iranian nukes are still hypothetical, the nuclear arsenal of Pakistan is a cold, hard reality.  Do we really believe that Musharraf will forever be able to resist a popular Islamist uprising or coup?  Pakistan's nuclear stockpile could shift to Al Qaeda control with a single assassin's bullet.  For this reason, the estimated two-dozen Pakistani nukes are much more dangerous (as the Indians would surely agree) than hypothetical Iraqi nukes. If we go after Saddam, we'd also need to neutralize any Iranian and Pakistani nuclear, biological and chemical weapons capa-
bilities -- if we were to maintain a consistent foreign policy.

The incoherence of American policy has needlessly created an enemy in a secular, stable Iraq. And it's not because of Saddam's ruthless dictatorial rule.  None of our "Arab friends" such as Saudi Arabia or
Egypt are paragons of democratic values - far from it.  Saddam is, however, a useful political bogeyman.

Since the "stick" has proved ineffective for dealing with Iraq, wouldn't the "carrot" approach be more productive?  What if we presented Iraq with this proposal: Allow one year of unfettered UN weapons inspections. During that time, the US will end all saber rattling and talk of "regime change." Iraq agrees to sign a peace agreement and establish normalized relations with Israel by the end of that year, as well as agree to a semi-autonomous demilitarized province for the Kurds.  Simultaneous to these events, the US will
lift all sanctions.

This approach would avoid inflaming the all-too-combustible "Arab street," and has much more potential for long-term stability in the region.

Congressman Bob Barr (R-GA)  revealed that, after "lengthy and painful therapy," he's recognized that his vicious hatred of the former president is the result of
a "homoerotic fixation."
"He (Clinton) is smart, charis-
