Welcome to the Carnival of the Decline of Democracy, Edition 2.2 - Blogging 'till the secret police take us away.
As always, narrowing all the blog posts I receive down to the target number of seven entries per carnival is always tough, but I think you'll find it worth the effort. The first few entries this week each have to do the President's recent announcement of a troop escalation in Iraq:
Rey Thomas, of The Thomas Political Report, presents What The President Said, What The President Meant.
vjack, of Atheist Revolution, presents The Escalation in Iraq.
Madeleine Begun Kane (Mad Kane) presents Bellicose Bush (poem, satire).
We round out the week with a broad look at American's fears, outlaw politicians, the lapdog press, and an explanation of why we allow it all to happen:
GrrlScientist, of Living the Scientific Life, presents Lapdogs: How the Press Rolled Over for Bush.
murad, of The New Business World, presents A Nation Without Leaders: A Poll On American Fears.
Michael Boldin, of the Populist Party of America, presents Outing the Constitutional Criminals.
Finally, one of my favorite posts in a long time, John Wesley, of Pick the Brain, presents Resist the Temptation to Submit to Authority.
The next edition of the Carnival will be posted on Monday, February 5th, 2007 with entries requested by Saturday, February 3rd, at midnight.
