The Assassination of Benazir Bhutto and Expediency of Politicians

Is the assassination of Benazir Bhutto going to be another cash cow for the GOP ?

G.W. Bush and the neocons grabbed the tragedy of 9/11 and sold the nation a bill of goods. Think of the price we have paid....and will continue to pay for letting them run amuck. Our politicians did not have a hand in the assassination of Benazir Bhutto but they lost no time in trying to capitalize on it. Every GOP presidential contender is trying to convince voters that he is the best qualified to protect us from evil terrorists.

Are the voters going to fall for their spiels ? We are 11 months away from the election. The caucuses are about to begin. The shrillness will escalate; misleading advertisements and dirty tricks (a hallmark of Republicans) will emerge. A numbness will set in among voters trying to decide who is fit to lead our country.

Protecting America from terrorists is just one part of the big picture. Before allowing the gas bags to succeed in cowing us into unquestioning acceptance of their claims pause to consider how they exploited our vulnerability after 9/11.

Well, that last comment didn't post like I wanted, so here it is again.

Everyone keeps saying that Bhutto was to be the savior of Pakistan, am I the only person in the whole world that got the heebie-jeebies from her and her family?

Does it mean anything that she was run out of the country for curruption and that her husband had her brother killed and served almost eight years in prison for drug trafficing?

I do not think these folks were good people, but I guess Pakistan takes the lesser of two evils approach. Much like the US has to now.
And by "curruption," I meant "corruption."
