I've always kind of appreciated Cheney's snarling, anti-hero personality. I love the image of Cheney at the Holocaust commeration in Germany a few years ago, the rest of the world leaders in somber and appropriate dark suits and ties, and Cheney lookin' like he's been trying to clear the fuckin' blockage on his fuckin' snowblower! Too bad his politics suck, and that he seems to be a awful excuse for anyone who ever had anything to do with public policy.
And I don't begrudge him his five deferments. That is the combination that a lot of young men were trying to put together then. I wish I could have made that "five-fecta" work like he did.
I 'd like to suggest some candidates to run with Cheney in 2012:Miles Davis,Jerry Lee Lewis, Charles Bukowski,Clifton Chenier, Sonny Boy Williamson, Mississippi Big Joe Williams, Tom Waits... I don't think not being alive should prevent one from being a candidate, as long as you are born in the U.S.

Well, Ron, it's a little hard to say if it's hyperbole or not. On the one hand, what I mean by "the $ySStem" is simply "the way things work in an overall sense in the present society".

That is, I don't mean that there is a specific and perfectly organized hierarchy of controllers with specific officers in place at every level, and that has the whole thing organized right down to to every jot and tittle, and which controls everything in detail. No.

But what I do mean is that the forces of Big Money control what generally occurs in an overall sense in terms of politics, war, legislation, and marketing, and that those forces are in the hands of relatively few people...all of them very rich. They are, of course, in it for their own gain, so there is much infighting among them.

So is that hyperbole or is it not?

Ah LH, but the question is if you are in fact using hyperbole when referring to the "$$ystem".   (It's your word--the spelling doesn't come easy for the rest of us).

If you are using hyperbole when you say "$$ystem", or however you spell it, hats off to you.

Otherwise it's just too pat an answer for economic phenomena.

Ron, it is you who are making the mistake of taking me literally in that post you allude to. ;-) You must get a better feel for my freewheeling sense of humour in these political discussions. The joke was meant to be shared with you and others, not debated as if it were serious commentary. Of course I knew you were using hyperbole when you said "sentient being". After all, you're not stupid, are you?

The word I use is "$ySStem". The $ part symbolizes the immense power of money that controls and manages the ruling $ySStem and allows it to manipulate both elections and legislation. The "SS" symbolizes the authoritarian, quasi-fascist methodology and intentions behind it all...a la Hitler's famous (or infamous?) SS corps.

The $ySStem is not omnipotent, because it's too stupid and unwieldy and far too unrealistic to ever become omnipotent...though it certainly desires to do so.

Re: "sentient being":

LH--you really need to make it a high priority to hear Micca sing his great song:   "Hyperbole".

Ch: "I never meant to be taken literally/ I never thought (he) would/.   If (he) can't understand hyperbole/ It's damn near time he should"

There's a poster here who loves to wax lyrical on the "$ystem". The difference between me and this poster is that I know when I'm using hyperbole. The other poster in question however actually seems to be dead serious in believing in an omnipotent and oppressive "$ystem", when to quite a few readers it seems clear his depiction of the political situation is classic hyperbole.

I do like the phrase "sentient being". But not by quite a bit as much as the poster in question likes to talk about his "$ystem".

Excellent point! I find it quite persuasive.

However, I think you underestimate the sheer mental determination of people who want to believe something. What they will do is say, "I don't believe that story about the 40-year old newspapers. I think the news people who are spreading that story have been paid off by the Obama campaign to falsify the information, and I think the pictures they've shown on the media are faked, digitally altered. I won't believe it until I HOLD one of those old newspapers in my very own hands."

And they just go on listening to whoever says what they already want to hear.

Isn't that what most people do most of the time? They read what they agree with, seek out information that helps their case, listen to whoever says what they want to hear, and ignore or discount the rest.

It wouldn't take diddly for someone with substantial resources to forge a birth certificate, "short form" or "long form"; but let's see you do a credible job of inserting a forged birth announcement into the 40 year old archives of two newspapers.

Ah, yes...but they are still quite sure where they were born! Regardless of evidence. ;-) Why? Well, because because people whom they feel they can trust (meaning their parents) told them where they were born, and that's what they go on, regardless of the presence (or not) of some apparently relevant official document saying where they were born.

An official document can be filled out in error. It can be a lie. It can be forged. Nothing else will convince a person of where they were born more than hearing about it from someone they personally trust...such as their Mom or Dad.

Since the birthers never knew Obama's Mom or Dad, all they really have to go on is various opinions that they hear from other people, and a birth certificate they've heard about also from other people. If they don't trust the people they've hear about it from, then they won't believe it. If they do believe the people they hear about it from who say that Obama wasn't born in America, then that's what they'll believe.

You see?

People believe what they wish to believe. This is true of almost all people almost all the time. Only when confronted with massive and irrefutable evidence to the contrary will they alter their favored set of beliefs.

Within their chosen set of beliefs, they are sentient and rational. But their sentience or at least their rationality stops dead at the barrier beyond which they are unwilling to go, and that barrier is the outer boundary of what they want to believe.

Watch a movie "The Downfall" about the last days in Hitler's bunker for a chilling demonstration of those dynamics at work in some highly intelligent people....but people hemmed in by strong political beliefs. Some of them eventually broke past the barriers of their own chosen beliefs and saw the reality of the situation. Others could not do so, and they chose death instead.

L.H., I seriously doubt that more than a small minority of the "birthers" could come up with as much hard evidence of their place of birth as there is for Obama's. To me, that puts most of them outside the realm of "sentient" thinking/defensible opinion, at least as to the point in question.

Little Hawk, those people who'd vote for Condoleeza Rice are as delusional as any who'd vote for Caribou Barbie. Rice had clearly reached her level of incompetence as National Security Adviser. Remember "Nobody thought they'd fly jets into buildings" as her excuse for how flat-footed they were about 9/11? In documented reality, MANY security experts had predicted exactly that. She's another one who won't last under the hot lights of actual candidacy.

"or face the scorn of every sentient being"

Say what???? Are you suggesting, Ron, that anyone who thinks Obama may not have been born in the USA is not sentient???

(I'm obviously asking that question tongue-in-cheek. ;-) But isn't it going a bit far to insist that people who hold some opinion that differs from yours are incapable of even thinking?)

I bet there are sentient beings out there who think Obama was born outside the USA.

I'm not one of them, though I have no way of being absolutely certain where he was born... I frankly don't even care where he was born! I don't think it matters. But I do realize it's a burning issue for some Americans.

Flash:   Sarah is cozying up to the crackpots. She said on a (conservative) radio interview--I believe the name is Andrews-- just recently that President Obama's birth certificate is a "fair question.   I don't have a problem with that."

The more she does that sort of thing, the less likely anybody who thinks will vote for her. And that includes a fair number of Republicans. She should be pressed on this point in every interview she gives from now on. She did back away later after the interview--but she should be forced to totally disassociate herself from the "birther" movement--or face the scorn of every sentient being. The main goal actually being to get her to refuse to sever ties with this group--and therefore brand herself as close to a crackpot.   Guilt by association works in politics--the Right certainly uses it.

Maybe this runaway train can be stopped after all.

Well, I was being a bit flippant, but Condoleeza Rice might actually be a pretty strong candidate for the Republicans. It would be amusing to see them "out-liberal" the Democrats by running the first Black AND female candidate for president. Yikes! What a conundrum it would be for both extreme liberal activists and extreme redneck Republican voters. If Condoleeza could also "come out" and announce that she is a lesbian (or a bisexual?) before she runs for president, that would just add the icing to the cake! Traditional voting blocs for both sides would get turned on their heads.

LOL! And what grist for the media. I have to write a letter to Ms. Rice and the Republican National Committee suggesting that they give it a go.

Speaking more seriously about it, though, I remember talking to a longtime Republican back during the later years of the Bush administration. He admitted that George Bush had become a real disappointment, but he said he'd vote for Condoleeza Rice in an instant, and that she'd make a great president. I think a fair number of other people in the USA might feel the same as he did. She is seen as smart, tough-minded, and capable by a great many people.

That's why I asked for a source on this.

It's a bit discouraging how blithely some of my fellow liberals accept rumors as long as they are unfavorable to opponents.

Insisting on sources and facts is an aspect of dealing with reality--which some, it seems, prefer not to do. In the long run, you have to do it--or you lose.

Sorry.   The parallel between Reagan and Sarah is far stronger than between Sarah and Joe McCarthy, for instance.

There are all sorts of people, not just the great unwashed, who are ready to vote for Sarah.   And she, not Cheney, would be at the head of the ticket (in the dystopia I envision). Though he would make a classically typical VP--in the campaign at least.   Question of course as to whether she would let herself be steered while in office as much as the faux cowboy we just had for 8 years.

I was talking yesterday to a friend of mine at work here in the DC area (who's also in the same choral group). He's a tenor--but I don't hold that against him.

I asked him if he could imagine voting for Sarah.   He's intelligent, articulate, a computer expert, and a good-natured guy. And very conservative politically, though not musically.   Voting for Sarah?. He immediately said:   "Absolutely."

Watch out, people.   Sarah is a big threat. Far bigger than anybody else on the Republican side at this point.   And for the reasons I cited: The passionate support she has. And the chance to make inroads among women.

The broken record yet again: it all hinges on the war and the economy.   Both have to improve drastically between now and 2012, or President Obama has big trouble.   From any Republican.   And Sarah is the strongest.

No problem if I want to return to the states, but I have no wish to.
I could order the Cheney mask that amazon.com is selling for $14.+ and not even bother with going to the consulate for the paper work.

Ron, Canadian politics are so dull that many Canadians know more about U. S. politics than they do about Canadian; they see and hear the same stuff, including polls, that Americans do.

As you say, the war/economic issues will continue to be negative for Obama. There will be a shift in Congress in 2010; small, but sufficient to put his objectives on hold.

Oh, pooh, Ron! *grin*...Sarah is not gonna run! It would require WORK...win or lose! She is in this for $$$$$$. People are (sadly) paying her big bucks to show up and be a celebrity and pretend she has clout! Many Republican are begging her to stay away!

What Democrats there are who take her even halfway seriously are hoping she WILL run for something and make an even bigger travesty of their (the Republican's) situation.
