I don't know if you noticed, but the Cogent Provacateur quietly put up another post a few days ago. Cogent Provacateur, in case you haven't noticed, is the most devastatingly effective left-wing blogger out there. Why, you might ask? Because he attains a quality that right wingers are constitutionally incapable of achieving, an artistic sensibility.
Any right-wingers reading this probably have no idea what I'm talking about, and that's why they'll never be able to meet the Cogent Provacateur on his own terms. Or for that matter, ever understand what makes our society a great one. As Rush and the other butt boils scream into the wind, America and the West's art, music, and culture will continue to define who we are, forever and ever, over the objection of the right's ironically named culture warriors.
You right wingers can keep your butt boils (sorry, Rush Limbaughs) and Bill O'Reillys (a radical partisan right winger, despite his protests). We've got the Cogent Provacateur. The right wingers will never understand what they don't have.

As those who read the indefatigable Joe Conason know, Rush Limbaugh got quite peeved on his show when a caller pointed out the documented truth that he escaped Vietnam because he had a boil on his butt.
Rush Limbaugh is getting headlines again, so it's time to bring him down a notch. "Big fat idiot," which worked wonders a few years ago, is past it's prime.
Note to everyone! Do not refer to Rush Limbaugh as Rush Limbaugh. He shall now only be referred to as "butt boil."
Remember: Rush is not Rush, he is "butt boil."
Now some of you may feel this is somewhat immature. But remember, this is how Rush makes his living, coming up with juvenile, degrading nicknames for patriotic, hardworking, liberal officeholders.
What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
"Butt Boil." Say it loud, and say it proud.

Just a few days ago I warned that Bush's unilateral approach to the war on terrorism will make us less safe. Now apparently, there's proof.
Here's the money quote from the Pew Research Center:
"U.S. image problems are not confined to Muslim countries. The worldwide polling conducted throughout the summer and fall finds few people, even in friendly nations, expressing a very favorable opinion of America, and sizable minorities in Western Europe and Canada having an unfavorable view. Many people around the world, especially in Europe and the Middle East/Conflict Area, believe the U.S. does not take into account the interests of their country when making international policies. Majorities in most countries also see U.S. policies as contributing to the growing gap between rich and poor nations and believe the United States does not do the right amount to solve global problems."
These problems can be solved by changing our foreign policy from unilateralism to multilateralism.
We can change our approach and still fight terrorism, mainly by embracing a cooperative multilateralism that focuses on eliminating deadly terrorists, as opposed to advancing our interests at the expense of others. The Bush Doctrine is breeding, and will continue to breed, enemies. Even though those enemies may not possess control of governments, they will, given time, be able to obtain and use weapons of mass destruction -- and they will use them against us!
Bush -- please please change your ways! You are putting our lives at risk!!!

I just donated $15 to Scoobie Davis. I don't know the guy, but I do know he has taken a hatchet to Rush, Horowitz, O'Reilly, and the several other right-wing whackjobs who get a free pass in the mainstream media.
After the midterms, I am convinced the left needs warriors. Scoobie Davis may be a surfer, but he's a hell of a warrior.
The link for donating to Scoobie is on the left side of his "blog.".

So far, it looks like my previous post on Iraq is turning out to be correct.
