Conservative Threat Level Raised to Orange on UK Terror, Cheney's Fourth Branch
Despite polls numbers now reaching into the 20's for President Bush, the Conservative Threat Level has been raised to Orange/High (Church and State to Merge).
Like a trapped rat, events this week showed the conservative movement remains rabid - and dangerous. The latest UK terror attacks in London and Glascow guarantee a new wave of Bush administration fear-mongering. Meanwhile in Washington, Vice President Dick Cheney briefly seceded from the executive to form a fourth branch of government even as the Bush White House set up a constitutional clash over Congressional subpoenas in the illegal NSA domestic surveillance and U.S. attorneys scandals. Over in the judiciary, the now-reliably conservative Roberts Court delivered Supreme wins for the right-wing on affirmative action, free speech, campaign finance reform, and church-state separation.
