Happy Codpiece Day

Happy Codpiece Day. It's been a swell four years. Media Matters takes a look back:
MATTHEWS: Let me ask you, Bob Dornan, you were a congressman all those years. Here's a president who's really nonverbal. He's like Eisenhower. He looks great in a military uniform. He looks great in that cowboy costume he wears when he goes West. I remember him standing at that fence with Colin Powell. Was [that] the best picture in the 2000 campaign?
See, the fact that Chris Mathews would compare Commander Codpiece with Dwight D. Eisenhower in any context shows what kind of media we were, and in many ways still are, dealing with. All Eisenhower did was hold together the greatest and most important military coalition in human history in order to defeat the worst threat to civilization in human history. The Chimperor in Chief, eh, not so much.

The people hate the occupation of Iraq, and they hate the Republicans for doing it. It's an anchor around the GOP's neck, and if that party will not be even slightly reasonable as an institution about finding a way out of the disaster, then they will deserve everything they get at the ballot box. The platitudes and lies don't work any more, so put that on a car magnet and stick it to your bumper.
