No, really. Hahahaha. I do love Louise. Way to show 'em what 'having a pair' really means. This is an argument for why we need more ovaries in office. Read more about Slaughter to Republicans: Quit Whining
NYTimes. I'm not going to blame the author, she seems to be trying hard to find "balance." But I ask you: did the fashion section go over the new Congressional leaders when it was a Republican revolution? I must have missed the discussion on Newt's favorite place to buy suits at a discount.
History is such a hoot. From an interesting blog called Civil War Power Tour (don't ask; just go read Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz to understand the name) we find that the phenomena of Chest-Beating War Fans who do their part for the Glorious Cause on that vital battlefield called the Home Front rather than waste their tremendous talents on the battlefield dates back to a much earlier time.

Je repete: "[GONZALES:] The Constitution does not say that every citizen has the right to habeas corpus."
Quote transcribed, live from the hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which you should be listening to, if you aren't (when it resumes at 2:00PM)
Gee, who decides when they don't? Read more about Gonzales, live: "The Constitution does not say that every citizen has the right to habeas corpus."
Pravda on the Potomac; Izvestia on the Hudson. It couldn't be more clear*. Check out Times stenographers Eric Lichtblau and David Johnson. The headline:
Court to Oversee U.S. Wiretapping in Terror Cases
Wrong. The court has always "overseen" wiretapping. Bush simply broke the law, and declined to involve them. Read more about Times stenography on Bush warrantless surveillance as vile as WaPo's
"Many of our safety features are built around age and it's important that people honestly reflect their accurate age while on our site," Nigam said in a statement.
Hahahahahahaha! Read more about Parents: This is No Substitute for Parenting
Really, I just can't. As CJill says, "branding isn't a substitute for reality-based foreign policy."
I guess the arrogance still shocks me. It boggles my mind that anyone could think that by placing a story about the rape, torture and murder of innocent civilians in the "business pages" that story is somehow less "impactful" and forgettable. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems to me that people tend to remember that kind of horror, no matter how many Disney movies they see. Read more about I Can't Muster Enough Snark for This

BAGHDAD -- Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki voiced frustration with President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Wednesday, saying their recent criticism of the Iraqi government probably helped the "terrorists."
WaPo rewrites history of warrantless surveillance, ignores Constitutional crisis, as Bush claims that finally he'll obey the law
WaPo stenographer Dan Eggen's front page "story" on Bush's illegal and unconstitutional warrantless surveillance program--Bush agrees to obey the law! Film at 11!--is the most appalling insult to what remains of the good name of American journalism since The Newspaper of Record (not!) suppressed its own scoop on the program to help Bush win the 2004 election.

United States Senator Edward Kennedy frequently can't get on airplanes because someone with the same name is on some Security list. You, scum, must take off your shoes. Muslims who do terroristic things like pray in airports must be detained. And yet....
