The latest in ideas and plans from our asterisk President

As Bush told Bob Woodward about the way he runs Cabinet meetings, "I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the president. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation." If Bush won't even try to explain himself to his most trusted advisors, can a lowly citizen expect any kind of answer?

and other Bananna Republicans

When the Pentagon used Sept. 11 and the war on terrorism in an effort to get its training exercises exempted from eight environmental laws, including the Endangered Species Act, the GOP-dominated House gave full approval. The lame-duck Democratic Senate rejected all but an exemption to the Migratory Bird Treaty, a "compromise" that allows the military to blast rare migratory birds like the American eagle in the defense of freedom. This case illustrates Republican arrogance. The Los Angeles Times reported that an administration lawyer, arguing for military readiness, contended that naturalists benefit when the military kills birds because "bird-watchers get more enjoyment spotting a rare bird than they do spotting a common one."

You could say that everything starts with the Powell Manifesto, a statement outlining Conservative goals and the shape of the Free Enterprise system in the future.
