Moon of Alabama Brecht quote

There Is No A Plan

But [Bush] expressed astonishment that people constantly refer to "Bush's plan": "I haven't laid out a plan," he said. "I've laid out some ideas that I think ought to be considered for a plan, and that's what's important for people to know."
Bush Won't Budge on Private Accounts about a March 15, 2005 briefing


THE PRESIDENT: I have not laid out a plan yet, intentionally. I have laid out principles, I've talked about putting all options on the table, because I fully understand the administration must work with the Congress to permanently solve Social Security.

Look, you guys have to go along with this! If you didn't protest when Condi said no one ever dreamed that they would use planes... then the principles of precedent and logical consistency demand that we recognize no dreams, not to mention plans for Social Security in the U.S. or for actual justice in Iraq.

In fact, the principles of "popular sovereignty" demand that we put to a plebiscite how we want our dear soldiers to treat these "clear and present danger" prisoners, and how long we want freeloading gay retirees to starve our unborn children.

Heck, I got lotsa principles!

The whole basis of successful propaganda is to have an objective and then to endeavor to arrive at it through an exact knowledge of the public and modifying circumstances to manipulate and sway the public. - Edward Bernays, Propaganda , 1928

propaganda sure ain't pretty. i'd rather watch how sausage is made.
