This just in from WaPo:
Some staff members and commissioners of the Sept. 11 panel concluded that the Pentagon's initial story of how it reacted to the 2001 terrorist attacks may have been part of a deliberate effort to mislead the commission and the public rather than a reflection of the fog of events on that day, according to sources involved in the debate.Read below the fold...
When will the Israeli invasion of Lebanon end?
"This week is entirely possible. Certainly we are talking about days not weeks," said Condi to Ray "Cuddly Bear" Suarez of PBS Newshour today.
But at the same time Shimon Peres tells reporters "In my judgment, it is not far away. You can count it in a matter of weeks, not months."
No respect for the Almighty US of A's emissary. Does Shimon know that Condi isn't backed by the Beltway Neocons that are really running things? Read below the fold...
Apparently now you can't have an opinion on a controversial subject and express it in public. At least not if you're a university professor in that deep red state of....Wisconsin?
It's in the NYT; if you want the details click and go read but the essense of it is that the dude went on a local radio show, on his own time and expressed some skepticism about the Official Account of the attacks of Sept. 11. He affirms, and all evidence backs him up, that he does not express these views in the classroom as part of his teaching (which consists of one class, for which he gets the munificent sum of $8000 or so. No I don't know how he survives either.) Read below the fold...

Hey, while we're on the subject, after everyone's been bombed into Cole Slaw can I have Mel Gibson's tequila? I won't drive in Malibu, I swear.
Ooh, I'd also like to claim dibs on his subscription to Sugar Tits Monthly. I hear Miss Brown Sugar Tits tastes sooo goooood!
Matt is just cracking me up. Read the whole thing, the pictures are really good. A sample:
After all the politicos had spoken, Lieberman finally stepped up to the mike. Lieberman's speech was bad, weird, listless, and angry. He said that there are two big lies in this campaign. The first is apparently that Lieberman is not a Democrat. For the record, we call him George Bush's favorite Democrat, though we tend to acknowledge that he's a Democrat. After repeating the the mean liberal voices he hears in his head, Lieberman said something along the lines of 'I'm a Democrat, I believe in human rights, in government working for the people, etc.' What's hilarious about Lieberman's point is that he not only violated campaign speak 101, which is that you don't repeat your opponent's attacks on you, but he actually invented a new attack line and used it on himself so he could deny it.

When Jules Cohen signed up for his Medicare-backed prescription drug plan, heâ€™d heard about the â€œdoughnut hole.â€Read below the fold...
The hole is a built-in gap, aimed at holding down the programâ€™s cost, that will force senior citizens to cover all their drug costs that exceed $2,250 a year.
