Hilbama vote "No" on capitulation to Bush on Iraq

Nancy "demands accountability" on the DCCC site

Of course, that was Monday, and three days is a long time in politics.

Anyhow, Bill in Portland Maine got a fundraising letter from the DCCC based on "carrying the fight forward" after the capitulation.

Er, what fight? Read more about Nancy "demands accountability" on the DCCC site

First, poison pet food. Now, poison toothpaste

Personally, I use baking soda. But other people may actually believe the marketing and buy the non-commodity product from the corps. BBC:

Health officials in the United States say they are checking all shipments of toothpaste imported from China for contamination with toxic chemicals.

Now they're checking. Um, how many years has the poison been in our toothpaste?

Oh, shit. Stop whining. It's only a little engine coolant: Read more about First, poison pet food. Now, poison toothpaste

What Republican promises are worth


[Republican gaulieter John 'It's not pronounced "Boner"'] Boehner spoke last night at a small reception for the Republican Rapid Responders on Capitol Hill [about the Senate's immigration compromise bill].

"I promised the President Bush today that I wouldn't say anything bad about ... this piece of shit bill," he said, according to two attendees.

Al Qaeda is blowback from torture



This is, in fact, a comment about… betrayal.

Few men or women elected in our history—whether executive or legislative, state or national—have been sent into office with a mandate more obvious, nor instructions more clear:

Get us out of Iraq.

Monica: Gonzales committed perjury?

From the transcript:

Rep. Davis: “General Gonzales testified that he never saw the US Attorneys list, the list of terminated US Attorneys, is that accurate to your knowledge Ms. Goodling?”

Goodling: “Um, I believe he did see a list.”

Rep. Davis: “So if General Gonzales testified that he didn’t see the list, you believe that would be inaccurate testimony on his part don’t you?”

Goodling: “I believe he saw a list.”

Rep. Davis: “So therefore you believe it would be inaccurate testimony?”

Goodling: “Yes.”

Yes she said Yes... Read more about Monica: Gonzales committed perjury?

Christianist weasels start to turn on each other

Regent "University"'s most famous graduate, Our Monica:

The Justice Department's former White House liaison denied Wednesday that she played a major role in the firings of U.S. attorneys last year and blamed Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty for misleading Congress about the dismissals.

McNulty's explanation, on Feb. 6, "was incomplete or inaccurate in a number of respects," Monica Goodling told a packed House Judiciary Committee inquiry into the firings.

Competing narratives...

I'm caught up in two competing narratives about how the Democrats "relented" on the Iraq timeline:

  1. "Look at how far we've come"
  2. "Betrayal by elites"

And while my head says "a long way" my heart screams "betrayal." Readers? Read more about Competing narratives...

Great! Now that we're in Iraq forever, let's take on Iran!


Via Think Progress, this from ABC. Dear God (if indeed there is a God):

The CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government, current and former officials in the intelligence community tell the Blotter on

Excellent! Because if there's one thing we don't have enough of, it's war! Read more about Great! Now that we're in Iraq forever, let's take on Iran!

Monica Goodling's head on a platter would be a nice make-good

Harry? Nancy? I know the press is teh suck, but why do you keep asking for it?

From AP, which is teh suck on this story, I know, but please, can we imagine this lead running in every small town paper in America:

Flinching in the face of a veto threat, Democratic congressional leaders neared agreement with the Bush administration Tuesday on legislation to pay for the Iraq war without setting a timeline for troop withdrawal.

Yeah, I know it's a "bruising" veto battle:

We elected you to fucking take the body!

Do it! Read more about Harry? Nancy? I know the press is teh suck, but why do you keep asking for it?
