The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

Have a quick and fragmented one…

  • London police defused a car-bomb outside a club in the city’s nightclub district. Click the links to see stories from WaPo, CNN & the Chicago Tribune.
  • I’ve always liked Colin Powell… though I did lose some respect for him when he agreed to be a member of Bush’s first cabinet… then gained some of it back when he decided to jump ship. Last night I gained a lot more respect for him after his appearance on ‘Larry King Live’. Yes, King is a media-pop culture-tool as he showed this past week when he interviewed she-who-will-not-be-named-on-this-blog. But last night he had Powell on, and Powell smacked the Bush(whacked) Administration around like they were a ragdoll. Click this LINK TO THINK PROGRESS to read more.
  • The Democratic presidential candidates staged another debate last night at Howard University that primarily focused on minority issues. No one won the debate per se as most pundits say that every candidate performed well and excelled… so now we’ll wait to see what the post-debate polls say.
  • “President” Bush continues to act like he’s above the law by claiming ‘executive privilege’ as a response to subpoenas sent by the Senate. The Senate is not amused and a Constitutional battle is looming… last one standing wins.
  • After seeing his pet project of immigration reform get blown out of the water by the Senate, the chances for “President” Bush to achieve a domestic political victory are slim to none… couldn’t have happened to a more deserving putz…
  • And have we mentioned? While thousands of people line-up for an iPhone, SCOTUS has been doing it’s best to screw-up the country even more than “President” Bush already has. Now they’re going to review whether “Guantanamo Bay detainees may go to federal court to challenge their indefinite confinement.” (Yeah… I don’t feel confidant in this being overturned… do you?)

I can't believe I missed the debates again. Do you know if they're online anywhere?
