According to a copy of the transcript from Friday's hearing, Libby's attorney, Ted Wells, said he was "told that there are an additional approximately 250 pages of documents that are emails from the office of the vice president," the transcript states.
Catch that "additional" there? These are the legendary "Lost Emails" that to the great astonishment of absolutely nobody just happened to "disappear" awhile back. But wait! Read below the fold...

The sort of thing I've been working on the last few days, since a certain database got goofed up and we have to rescue the escaping contents and stash them safely on new pages before they drift off to sea and are lost: Read below the fold...

I'm still thinking that the General has the right idea--Whenever a woman crosses a state line, we need to be inspecting her vagina for blastocysts--just in case she might be travelling to a state where abortion, contraception, or plan B is available. Doesn't the logic of the Christianist position dictate that? Think of how many "little babies" might be saved! Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "internal passport", wouldn't you say?

Via speakerphone, from the Mighty Corrente Building's (Padded) Marketing Department Conference Room.
The key to blog influence is proving that we're real people and that there are a lot of us. Otherwise, the establishment can pretend we don't exist and portray all of us in broad strokes as cheetos-eating teenage nerds living in our parents' basement (not that there's anything wrong with that).

You thought maybe the "War On Women" was too strong a term to apply to people who would ever so much rather, would downright insist on, being called by a warm and fuzzy term like "pro-life"? Um, no. It isn't. Or we would never see a story like this. From this morning's Richmond VA Times-Dispatch:

During my brutal commute on the train, I sometimes fantasize a little, and one of my favorite fantasies is telling a cellphone user to go Cheney themselves, and then (pick one) jamming their own phone down their throats / smashing my laptop over their heads / setting them on fire with the Molotov cocktail I keep in my briefcase / dragging them to the door and hurling them out on the track, right while they (pick one) are saying "Hi, I'm on the train" / detailing their symptoms / detailing their diagnosis / sharing their most intimate feelings / closing the sale / blurting out confidential a Read below the fold...

08 Oil Supply/Price
Islamic terrorists come close to causing a major disruption in Saudi oil production.
Excellent! So, when a teaspoon of gas costs you a buck, which means something after the layoffs, remember the Christianists think that's A Good Thing--And they run the government, so you can thank them for it. Read below the fold...

Of course the Kossacks are all over this, but it's too juicy to pass up. Do you like beating idiot fascists over the head with large objects (metaphorically) when you converse with them? Drop this beauty and watch heads explode.

This is an interesting read. Again, no one seems to care to talk about it, but our system of voting appears to be deeply fucked, and the only thing our leaders and the state seem willing to do is prosecute the people who want to tell us about it.

(CBS) The latest CBS News poll finds President Bush's approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 34 percent, while pessimism about the Iraq war has risen to a new high.
Americans are also overwhelmingly opposed to the Bush-backed deal giving a Dubai-owned company operational control over six major U.S. ports. Seven in 10 Americans, including 58 percent of Republicans, say they're opposed to the agreement. Read below the fold...
