Bush pissed at the French for not rescuing him fast enough

Jeebus, what an asshole:

Bush expressed some disappointment with France's decision to offer just 400 soldiers to a U.N. peacekeeping force being developed to calm the situation in southern Lebanon. France was expected to lead the mission, and its announcement of such a small number led to doubts that the force would deploy quickly.

News You Can Lose

The inestimable Tony Norman has a good one in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today. He takes the stunningly under-covered story from yesterday about the FCC sending letters to 77 TV stations demanding their records on running prepackaged fake news report-like items without disclaimers as to source (usually a drug company, the RNC or other fraudsters). Then he gives some examples of same:

Conservatives call for Judge Taylor's murder

Time for another blogger ethics panel! Uppitty nigra (Free Republic via Hughes for America):

Oh boy; a "two-fer" (two credits for placing a double-minority in a position of power....one for the "female", and one for the "black"...)

Judge Taylor, please put on your burqa.

This traitor should be taken out back and SHOT. Period. Not a joke, not sarcasm. I'm tired of this terrorist-allied judicial legislators.

ACLU vs. NSA: Don't pop the cork on the champagne yet

The good news: Judge Anna Diggs Taylor has courageously declared that Bush's warrantless program of domestic surveillance violates the First and Fourth Amendments, the separation of powers doctrine, and FISA, is not justified under the AUMF, and is not justified under the purported doctrine of "inherent authority."

Moscow in Flames. Missiles Headed to New York. Film at 11.

Is it my imagination or is the administration's scare-o-matic in overdrive these days?

All You Need to Know About Lieberman

Sirota (live links at post):

Joe Lieberman is no longer the De Facto Republican nominee - he is officially the Republican Party-endorsed candidate for Senate in Connecticut. The GOP’s motivation is obvious - they not only are rewarding Lieberman for regurgitating GOP talking points that attack Democrats as terrorist sympathizers, but should he win, they are making a move to get him to support a Republican for Senate leader. In the event that the Senate is very closely split after the 2006 election, a Lieberman vote for the GOP leader could keep control of the Senate in GOP hands.

Happy Birthday, John

newarchylogo

John McCay, the owner and operator of that unique and excellent blog, Archy, a man and a blog that do credit to "Blogtopia," (thank-you skippy), is approaching a birthday of moment; that's what I like to call such birthdays, it sounds better to me than seminal. (Full disclosure, I faced this particular one some years ago.) Read below the fold...

Canaries in Silk Suits

Holden has a nice catch this morning from Punditopia. I'm sure this will mean hours of blogging fun for those brave enough to go back and dredge up the ink spilled by Republican lobbyists after they've morphed magically into to the Democratic kind. Nonethless- no one knows the inside score better than this pack of rats, so pay attention as they reorder their own reality to suit what's coming:

Progress Report: Iraqi Gas Edition

I was just talking to someone about this the other day. You really have to wonder at those who still maintain that we're making "progress" in Iraq, and the alternative universe they inhabit. Because, I could post stories like this on the hour, every day, that being the nature of a clusterfuck:
