Update From Alicia

Hi friends -

Just wanted to let you know that I'm taking a short breather from Hooterville - that is, as far as regular, up-to-date commentary is concerned. This primary has made me feel the need to step back and take a break, as I simply cannot involve myelf in Dem-on-Dem bashing while the criminals who have seized power are continuing to rape this country under the radar. While I'm waiting for news about my book release, I've had to put that on my mental back burner too, as it will drive me crazy otherwise. I'm still staying involved - this morning I have a meeting, along with another PDLA member, with Congressman Brad Sherman to discuss his war funding vote. I will also be a pollworker next Tuesday, and I'm still active with Americans United.

Speaking of criminals who seize power, I'm reading the new book by one of my heroes, Vincent Bugliosi, called The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder. In addition to being the prosecutor who put away Manson and Co. and wrote the best-seller Helter-Skelter about the case, he wrote an outstanding book about how the Supreme Court gave away the Presidency in 2000, The Betrayal of America: How the Supreme Court Undermined the Constitution and Chose Our President. Bugliosi gets it right every single time, and this book is no exception. I feel like crying when I read how clearly, succinctly and inexorably he outlines the case for, not impeachment, but murder. In his usual acerbic, no-nonsense style he makes obvious what we left-wing nutjobs have been screaming about for the last seven-and-a-half years. I wish he was trying it himself, although he has offered to assist any attorney who will take it on.

I'm not gone, so feel free to comment or e-mail me, but I will be taking it easy and recharging my batteries for the fight in the fall - the fight for the future of our democracy. I am going to be all over that like ants on a neckbone, and will continue to keep active in the meantime.

I am with you on looking forward to turning our attention to taking down sick-fuck same-old right-wing shitbag McCain, instead of each other!

I'm going to take this opportunity to talk about something I think you'd find interesting.

Follow the link for a startling pictture of "Johnny Values." McCavein is worse than your worst image of him might be.
