How do you solve a problem like George W?

[Sorry for the Sound of Music reference there. I don't know what came over me.]

But seriously. The ABA has issued its first report on Bush and signing statements. The problem:

In a report to be issued today, the ABA task force said that Bush has lodged more challenges to provisions of laws than all previous presidents combined.

Birth Pangs for the Middle East

Digby dodges Pacific lightning strikes and ponders Condi Rice's use of a curious phrase:

"What we're seeing here ... are the birth pangs of a new Middle East and whatever we do, we have to be certain that we are pushing forward to the new Middle East, not going back to the old one."

Naturally, I wrote a song...

At Every Level, For Everything You Can Imagine

This is happening. In every department you can imagine, from those who dictate the books for sale in the stores near the Grand Canyon, to the State Department officials negotiating peace upon many fronts. Read below the fold...

Caption the Fondler

Oh, I know I shouldn't do this, but this is why we love him:

Condi sez the head of my penis reminds her of a little Nazi helmet (hett hett).

I'd call this a animal attraction but i'm not into all those new positions.

Old injustice, new injustice -- still injustice

Israel's right to exist trumps Lebanon's right to shelter Hez-b-allah. Prove me wrong. I dare you.

Meanwhile, let me remind you where suicide bombing was invented. It started in Israel. It started with a way to kill Jews. It wasn't the Jews who loaded cars with explosives and blew up soldiers. It wasn't the Jews who dressed teenagers in vests or belts full of explosives and sent them onto buses and detonated them with cell phones in case the kids chickened out.

Shocking Image of Previously Burned Candle Just Plain Wrong

When you burn a candle
Do you turn away
From the carbon-crusted wick
And the price the wax did pay

But that would be paranoid. Read below the fold...

A population terrified and on the run?

6,000 civilians killed by those same death squads in the last two months?

What an effing disaster we've created in Iraq. Read below the fold...

Time to check the squash and tomatoes for bugs

So the Republicans have finally revealed themselves as authoritarian death cultists.

That's no reason to let bugs eat the leaves of my squash or infest my tomatoes. Read below the fold...
