OK, dammit. I really have tried to stay away from political stuff, but this is just fuckin' too much.

Time Magazine reports that the White House has pulled Kerry supporters out of the IATC. That's the Inter-American Telecommunication Commission, a group that only meets three times a year to discuss things like telecommunications standards and spectrum regulations. Not exactly a political arena...but, apparently, Dubya has stooped so low that he's just outright and OPENLY bumping those that supported his opponent in the last election. Hell, they've admitted it.

This is not a political matter. This is an meeting of industry experts for telecommunication issues. Explain to me how this is any kind of party situation, and how this manoeuvre is ethical in any way.

You'd think someone with an approval rating that is hovering around 45% would be, at the very least, a little more subtle about the stupid things he does. But openly? That's just showing a contempt for the country you "run". Well, one good thing, in my opinion: the more he does like this, the more the American public will realize what a whack-job he is, and maybe we can start to make a change.
