    HO! HO! HO!

    Libby is gone, as expected, but the good news is that the investigation will go on. The direction seems to be looking at the administrations push for war on Iraq as well as the efforts by Rove, et al, in the later cover-up. Make no mistake, the war on Iraq is no longer a mistake, and is looking a lot like treason. Let's hope that in the end those who pushed half-truths and ignored expert opinions will be charged accordingly. Soon we may know how we were misled into a 2000+ casualty, waste of time that has done little to stop terrorism and in my opinion has aided their movement (much like Afghanistan trained UBL in the 80s).

    Don't let Fox News fool ya! This seems like a good start to me and the worst case for Bush and his apologist.

    bushCo Blocked Papers To Senate Intelligence Panel

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    Repubs, it's over. You in the extreme wing of the Republican party need to realize that your dream is over the truth has started to filter through. The sooner you return to reality the sooner our country will return to a normal and healthy democracy. The American hegemony should die as quickly or quicker than which it was formed.

    Vice President Cheney and his chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, overruling advice from some White House political staffers and lawyers, decided to withhold crucial documents from the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2004 when the panel was investigating the use of pre-war intelligence that erroneously concluded Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, according to Bush administration and congressional sources.

    Regardless of indictments; the highest members of the currently ruling Republican administration, in the public record, are corrupt. They will be judged so in history as well.

    More Republicans indicted

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    This time it's, again, money laundering but in the state of Ohio.
    A federal grand jury has indicted Tom Noe, the former Maumee coin dealer suspected of laundering money into President Bush's reelection campaign, Mr. Noe's attorney told The Blade today.

    It's shocking when I hear people still supporting the Republicans and providing them with support; it is a damn shame. I know that the other party may not appeal to those who have been seduced by the right but at least be neutral rather than willfully ignorant. If you don't want to switch parties, then create a new one or fix your current party.

    Anyway, the list of corrupt and felonious Republicans grows larger. I'd say two more will be announced sometime this week.

    A truly pitiful party.

    Why is Miers' a "surprise"?

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    Is anyone really surprised by this. She was
    1) underqualified
    2) two hated by the ruling Christian Extremists (I question the Christian claim)

    Furthermore, now is about the best time to deflect attention from the culture of corruption the Republican Party has brought to Washington and across the nation. Now as I write this, most headlines have lost the surprise term but I'm sure the TV media is still calling it a surprise. THIS IS NOT A SURPRISE, and the next one will be a real nut-job.

    More reasons for medi-pot

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    It just keeps coming... Isn't anyone trying to investigate any real dangers from pot? Dangers other than the police and Feds shooting at ya.

    ...Nicotine has several effects that promote lung and other types of cancer, THC acts in ways that counter the cancer-causing chemicals in marijuana smoke, Melamede explained in an interview with Reuters Health.
    For example, lab research indicates that nicotine activates a body enzyme that converts certain chemicals in both tobacco and marijuana smoke into cancer-promoting form. In contrast, studies in mice suggest that THC blocks this enzyme activity.

    Another key difference, Melamede said, is in the immune system effects of tobacco and marijuana. Smoke sends irritants into the respiratory system that trigger an immune-regulated inflammatory response, which involves the generation of potentially cell-damaging substances called free radicals. These particles are believed to contribute to a range of diseases, including cancer.

    But cannabinoids -- both those found in marijuana and the versions found naturally in the body -- have been shown to dial down this inflammatory response, Melamede explained.

    Greetings and Salutations, Drinking Libbers!

    If only we could boot Bush and chuck Cheney and dump DeLay and fire Frist and humiliate Hughes and lose Libby and mute Miers (oh, wait, she already is) and roust Rove and restrain Rumsfeld and can Condi and bully Bolton and chastise Chertoff, we'd have a damn decent chance of dwelling in a damn decent country, wouldn't we?


    Who else besides me has started thinking "champagne" when those indictments commence?


    Check out this funny from DLibber Scott: Go to google.com and type in "Failure", then hit "I'm feeling lucky". We can share results Thursday. Speaking of Thursday, we're counting on you to converge in collegiality and commiserate with cohorts in crime at DRINKING LIBERALLY.

Smith, one of a seven-pack of candidates for City Council District 4, plans to join us this week at DL ... Kathleen Wilson, City Council District 12, has sent DL a letter, asking for volunteers and support (read Kathleen's letter on the forum) or on the DL page [UPDATE] Kathleen Wilson will be dropping by tomorrow night!! ...

Yvonne enjoyed a little liberal libation to toast her success in the forum with her opponent Tuesday night ... Darrold Heyward will be facing his opponent Thursday night in a forum for voters in District 2, so he sends regrets. Cheers from afar to Darrold!

    Bush White House doesn't read papers?

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    But they read The Onion
    The White House is not amused by The Onion, a newspaper that often spoofs the Bush administration, and has asked it to stop using the presidential seal on its Web site.

    The seal was still on the Web site www.theonion.com on Tuesday at the spot where President Bush’s weekly radio address is parodied.

    Debunking the Republican Plame defense

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    BooMan takes the Wall Street Journal to task, here's a taste
    Rampant leaks notwithstanding, no one but Patrick Fitzgerald knows all of the criminal evidence the special prosecutor is considering against senior White House officials. Our hope is that he also understands that the job of a prosecutor is not to settle what at bottom is a political and policy fight over the war in Iraq.

    The assumption here, is that the decision to bypass the traditional vetting of intelligence by stovepiping raw intel into the VP's office, and then using that raw unvetted intel to push forged documents on Congress, the United Nations, the IAEA, and the public...all to trump up false rationales for a war of aggression...all of that is beyond the scope of the law. All of that is merely a policy fight and/or political differences. Okay. Let's be generous and grant them their assumption.

    Go read it. The editorial board now officially has multiple assholes. But really, why do we allow them to call that paper a journal? It desecrates the very idea of legit journals.

    On a side note, comparisons between Star and Fitz courtesy of Armando; he's always good.

    UBL Dead?

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    This isn't the first time this has been reported, and it won't be the last. At least, of course, until we catch him. But I agree, him alive or dead has little to do with the GWOT. If he has been burried, I wonder if his head is still worth $25 million?
    A Pakistani newspaper Ausaf published from Multan has reported that Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden died four months ago in a village near Kandahar of severe illness.

    According to the newspaper report, Bin Laden was campaigning at Bamiyan, fell very ill, returned to Kandahar where he died and was buried in the Shada graveyard in the shadow of a mountain.

    The controversy continues to surround Osama bin Laden and while US and Pakistan officials have often been quoted by the media as saying that his mortal status was just a matter of detail, the hunt is still on and the issue remains a topic of great interest for the media and governments alike.

    Funeral prayers have been said for Osama bin Laden over these years with one reported now by the Ausaf, and another in an Egyptian newspaper Al Wafd as far back as December 2001.

    Indictment predictions - open thread

    AddThis Social Bookmark Button
    I haven't been able to post most of this weekend as my connection at my condo is disrupted. I have only been able to get access at the college library (which is where I am now).

    I've mentioned to friends and family what I thought would happen in the Plame case which will break this week; possibly Tuesday. I thought it would be fun to create a thread on readers predictions, assuming someone reads this site in the next few days and wants to go through the trouble of posting a comment. So, if you are so inclined, let's hear it.

    As for my prediction, I think Libby will be named, as I have said before. In addition to Libby, I believe Rove will be named and Cheney as well as a co-conspirator.

    Again, this is for predictions, not for explanations.
