McCain dressed supporters in Confederate uniforms. In the year 2000. WTF?

This article (une tippe of le vieux chapeau to the man in the grey turtleneck) is about George Felix Allen (Racist-VA), but the interesing part is down at the end. It's about an episode McCain had to have known about: Read below the fold...

Bill "Hello Kitty" Frist lied when renewing his medical license

Honestly. Is there anything Republicans won't lie about? Anything at all?

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist acknowledged Tuesday that he may not have met all the requirements needed to keep his medical license active — even though he gave paperwork to Tennessee officials indicating that he had.

Osama bin Laden, Superstar

General JC Christian dug into the past and uncovered some guy named Osama bin Laden. Probably made him up out of whole cloth. Or a burkha.

Anyway, I was moved to write some lyrics...

Is there a Plame-ologist in the house?

Thread: 

Armitage was the source of Novak's leak. And Rove was Novak's confirmation.

So sayeth Pravda on the Potomac:

Update on Noah's Ark Animal Seizure in Long Beach, CA

The Long Beach Press Telegram reports the following:

On Friday, Kyrklund won a bid in a San Pedro court for a restraining order against the Long Beach Animal Control. That ruling keeps Animal Control veterinarians from euthanizing any of the dogs or cats seized Wednesday.

The restraining order expires on Sept. 8, when lawyers for both sides will reconvene to determine if the order should be extended.

After the 10 days are up, investigators plan to file their case with the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office, Quigley said.

Why We Will Continue to Lose Wars and Fail at Occupations

I don't claim to be an expert, but I do know a couple of basic things about intelligence. The first rule is that a successful intelligence community is one made up of, well, intelligent people. People with advanced training in the regions they study, who are fluent in the languges of the area, and who have a demonstrated record of proven results. In other words, not these people:

Hanging an Albatross Around Der Gropinator

Thread: 

Talk about a tin ear. I hope this works, and that he gets his ass handed to him if he vetos it. I find it rather pathetic that the Republicans quoted here are still blathering about "bloated bureaucracy" when discussing health care. I mean, really- who in this country actually has efficient, high quality service from their health insurance provider, assuming they have one? At this point I think most people would rather deal with the IRS than their insurance company:

Bushh on Katrina: "What I intend to do is lead an investigation to find out what went right and what went wrong."

Bush, September 6, 2005 (Quote from Uggabugga's excellent Katrina timeline.)

So, how's that investigation coming? I haven't heard a lot about it, lately. Hey, can I find it online?

Maybe somebody from the SCLM will ask him about it. Or somebody that "roundtable" photo-op Rove has set up. Snicker.

Republicans to uninsured: Drop dead

More cause for optimism as Bush sets a new record:

The number of Americans without health insurance probably rose to a record in 2005 as medical costs increased three times as fast as wages, according to forecasts for a Census Bureau report today.

The total has climbed every year since President George W. Bush took office.

Nice work, George. Read below the fold...

The Off-The-Books Dead

No-Brainer

Headline at the NYT? WaPo? Nope. This was in the Raleigh NC News & Observer, locally written piece. Let's see how fast this gets picked up by the "major media":

Brain injury budget faces cut:

Brain injuries are so common among U.S. troops that they're called the signature injury of the Iraq war, but Congress is poised to cut military spending on researching and treating them.

candy_candy Bushh cuts loose with another one, this time to Katrina survivors:

"[BUSHH] Optimism is the only option."

Yeah, that theory really worked out great in Iraq, didn't it? And Iran--good luck with that.
