For when a woman's ovaries
Are invaded by a man

If she can terminate

Because I'm genuinely curious to know; I'd like to understand. SOP News:
BUSH: Laura and I just had a moment to converse with God in a church here in Hanoi.

Some war criminals are just slow to figure stuff out, I guess. Anyhow, a month ago, Henry was chanting, in chorus with the rest of the Beltway insiders, that "victory was the only option." Oopsie:
Military victory is no longer possible in Iraq, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said in a television interview broadcast Sunday.Read below the fold...
MCCAIN: I do believe that itâ€™s very likely or possible that the Supreme Court should â€” could overturn Roe v. Wade, which would then return these decisions to the states, which I support.

Sweet Jeebus, this is getting old fast. Pravda on the Potomac's Peter Baker:
Embittered Insiders Turn Against Bush

McConnell's already threatening to filibuster over those winger judges Bush resubmitted, even after the pre-election, Republican-controlled Congress couldn't choke them down.
Say, I wonder...

The Pentagon plans to build a military commissions compound at GuantÃ¡namo Bay, Cuba, costing up to $125 million, a major undertaking meant to accommodate up to 1,200 people for the first U.S. war crimes trials since World War II, The Miami Herald learned Thursday.

Oh, I'm so sad. It looks like Libby Wibby dinnit tell the Whole Truth, and now Daddy Fitz is angry:
A former White House aide, I. Lewis Libby, may have disclosed conclusions from a highly classified government report on Iraq to journalists before the report was declassified by President Bush, federal prosecutors said in a new court filing.

So if you decide to run, do you think we would see the Al Gore from the movie? Or the Al Gore from 2000?
[GORE] Well, I donâ€™t plan to run. I donâ€™t plan to run. And I donâ€™t expect to run. ... Iâ€™m not making plans to run again.
