Bush's presser cheat sheet and the Middle East Clusterfuck

bushnotes-large
BAG news, as always, has great visual analysis:

The A.P. stole a shot of Bush's notes from his idiotic press conference earlier this week. ... [Via Bob Harris of the Huffington Post,] on the left are notes on the Middle East and Iraq. ...

More doctored Republican campaign photos: This time, Jean Schmidt

I guess desperate measures must have been called for:

Republican Rep. Jean Schmidt is fast, capable of running a marathon in 3 hours, 19 minutes, 6 seconds.

At least that's what a photo on the Ohio congresswoman's Web site shows.

Lamont: Thank Lieberman for Mike "Heckuva Job" Brown

AP:

"[LAMONT] It was Senator Lieberman who said, 'Let's put Michael Brown as No. 2 at FEMA.'"

Lamont is correct. Lieberman took all of 42 minutes to rubberstamp Brownie's appointment.

Yep, Lieberman's a Republican, alright.

No oversight, no accountability.

And by their fruits--Katrina--shall ye know them. Read below the fold...

Hello, Rain

Well, sometimes it's good to get out and smell the grapes...just got in from a mini-road trip, and I'd like to offer up a suggestion for your next East of the Mississippi vacation: Ontario. Specifically, Niagra wine country. Named by some the "Sonoma of Canada." And, gosh, having been to and tasted in Sonoma, I have to agree. No, it's not France, but still- it's nice to know that in North America, one can still enjoy the culture of the grape, and with no small style. Let me reccomend Stratus Vineyards in particular. /James Earl Jones voice/ Impressive. Read below the fold...

If I ever got a TV...

... it would be watch Jon Stewart (via Taylor Marsh).

Of course, I'd also have to get cable... Naah. But I was tempted, there, for a moment. Read below the fold...

Charlie Brown, come on ... I'll hold the football, and ...

you can kick it!

...and just like Charlie Brown running down the field, I believe the laptop will work.

Just like Lucy yanking the ball away, the laptop comes up and behaves wonderfully. Until it's touched. Read below the fold...

What a man! George Felix Allen polled on "macaca" before issuing apology

Would it have been to much to ask, that for once a Republican should simply do the right thing because it's right?

OK, cancel that. National Journal:

Did Allen's team -- or a sympathizer -- poll Northern Virginia to see whether the "Macaca" remark left a bruise?

A NoVa voter reports receiving a telephone survey asking pointed questions about the nature and scope of Allen's apology.

Can we start bashing Sharon Ferrucci now?

From comments at My Left Nutmeg:

So don't start bashing good people like Sharon Ferrucci until she's done something wrong. I mean honest to god, this is New Haven under John DeStefano. It's not Waterbury.

I know my Registrar of Voters office to be highly professional. Period.

Yeah, Joe's a professional too. Just a different kind of professional. Read below the fold...

More on the one that (didn't) get away

I didn't realize it but I was mentioned (in a vague fashion) in a news story about the Tolzmann case back in May:

At the time, the review seemed to draw little attention. UC apparently didn't know about it, and neither did HNN. "It just flew under the radar," said HNN editor Rick Shenkman. Read below the fold...

Looks like Vaccarella had a Dutch oven installed in his trailer

Turns out that belonging to the same authoritarian party isn't all that Republican NOLA ringer Rockey Vaccarella and Bushh have in common.

Okay, It's Final: We Have To Bomb Ourselves

"Governments which support or harbor terrorists" are on our Must Be Overthrown Or Destroyed" list, right? From today's Chicago Tribune:

In the heart of Tehran sits one of Iran's most important nuclear facilities, a dome-shaped building where scientists have conducted secret experiments that could help the country build atomic bombs. It was provided to the Iranians by the United States. Read below the fold...

Fun With "Moral Turpitude"

"Turpitude" has always been one of my favorite things. Er, I mean words. Just say it a time or two, silently if speaking it aloud would cause unwanted curiosity from bystanders, and in any case using what mothers and teachers call your "indoors voice."

TURP. That has a satisfying, frog-like feel right there, doesn't it? Then TURP-u-TOOOOd. It's the kind of thing you almost want to see more of, just for the joy of getting to say "MORAL TURRRP-A-TUDE!!" several more times. Read below the fold...

He Didn't Get Away After All

If you recall, I wrote about this in February.

Apparently I spoke too soon.

A university committee has reviewed the allegations and contended he committed major plagiarism. There is now a recommendation on the table at the University of Cincinnati that Tolzmann be fired. Read below the fold...

Lieberman is a cancer

Now he's campaigning with Republicans against Democrats. Firedoglake, as usual, is all over this one.

And what do you do with cancers?

You cut them out before they spread and destroy more healthy tissue. C'mon, Harry, you know I love you, but why is it so hard to do the right thing on this? Read below the fold...
