Mrs Roger Rabbit and her dumb bunny were sitting in the living room and he said to her, "Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug." She got up, unplugged the computer and threw out all of his beer!

rwb @ 55: "...this is a progressive blog. That means most of the people here are progressive" No, this is a Democrat blog. Very little of what you say -- when you actually say something of substance instead of just being contrary -- has to do with progress. "...Roger makes sense to most of us here..." That is entirely possible. Then again, avant garde French cinema, acid trips and taxing people into prosperity make sense to you, too.

David @ 31 "On a side note, does anyone else here have the impression that Roger Rabbit is less sane than usual? Are you in a manic phase, Roger?" It is actually par for the course. A big reason why I haven't been around lately has been that I became quite tired of Roger playing in his own Depends deposits. It looks like little has changed. If you haven't seen one yet, just wait 'til you watch him go on one of his futile rants trying to prove that he is somehow a patriotic American instead of a feeble coot with a computer and LOTS of spare time, sucking on the government teat. [Disclaimer: Roger has been known to have fleeting moments of lucidity and reason, but looking for them would be like panning for gold in the LA River.]

IS AMERICA HYPNOTIZED? From today's P-I: "Half of Americans still believe Iraq had WMDs before invasion "By CHARLES J. HANLEY "THE ASSOCIATED PRESS "Do you believe in Iraqi WMD? Did Saddam Hussein's government have weapons of mass destruction in 2003? Half of Americans apparently still think so, a new poll finds, and experts see a raft of reasons why: a drumbeat of voices from talk radio to die-hard bloggers to the Oval Office, ... a rallying around a partisan flag, and a growing need for people ... to justify the war in Iraq. People tend to become 'independent of reality' in these circumstances, says opinion analyst Steven Kull. "The reality ... is that ... U.S. weapons hunters ... declared that Iraq had dismantled its chemical, biological and nuclear arms programs in 1991 under U.N. oversight. That finding in 2004 reaffirmed the work of U.N. inspectors who in 2002-03 found no trace of banned arsenals in Iraq. "Despite this, a Harris Poll released July 21 found that a full 50 percent of U.S. respondents -- up from 36 percent last year -- said they believe Iraq did have the forbidden arms when U.S. troops invaded in March 2003, an attack whose stated purpose was elimination of supposed WMD. Other polls also have found an enduring American faith in the WMD story. "'I'm flabbergasted,' said Michael Massing, a media critic whose writings dissected the largely unquestioning U.S. news reporting on the Bush administration's shaky WMD claims in 2002-03. 'This finding just has to cause despair among those of us who hope for an informed public able to draw reasonable conclusions based on evidence,' Massing said. ... "'I think ... the basic dynamic is the insistent repetition by the Bush administration of the original argument,' said John Prados, author of the 2004 book 'Hoodwinked: The Documents That Reveal How Bush Sold Us a War.' Administration statements still describe Saddam's Iraq as a threat. Despite the official findings, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has allowed only that 'perhaps' WMD weren't in Iraq. And Bush, since 2003, has repeatedly insisted on one plainly false point: that Saddam rebuffed the U.N. inspectors in 2002 .... As recently as May 27, Bush told West Point graduates, 'When the United Nations Security Council gave him one final chance to disclose and disarm, or face serious consequences, he refused to take that final opportunity.' 'Which isn't true,' said Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a scholar of presidential rhetoric at the University of Pennsylvania."

Independent of reality. Interesting phrase. It describes the psychological mechanism, which exists in all human beings, that enabled Hitler to work his sorcery on a German people traumatized by their nation's defeat in World War I. On Sept. 11, 2001, the American people suffered a national trauma ... and evil sorcerers are back to work, practicing their black magic.
