The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • Democrats in Congress are making good on at least one of their midterm vows, they are making a push to overhaul the nation's student loan system. The Senate education committee overwhelmingly approved legislation that would cut federal subsidies to lending companies, by as much as $19 billion, would channel most of those savings to student aid and would also ease repayment rules for borrowers. (Well, it doesn’t end the war or eliminate bribery, but at least its something…)
  • AttorneyGate just will not go away as McNulty is making his way back to Congress today to defend “his past statements”. (One has to think that if AG Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales were to resign, the interest in this story would ebb something fierce)
  • The Washington Post is slowly becoming all Hillary, all the time.
  • Congress acted yesterday (wait? They actually did more than one thing yesterday?? Wow, will wonders never cease) to block “President” Bush “from developing a new generation of atomic warheads.” All because the administration hasn’t developed an adequate post-Cold War nuclear strategy, and by that they mean having developed one at all. Not surprisingly, Bush has once again promised to break out his veto crayon because the bill would deny him the $89 billion he requested for the program. (Sigh…the man is a tool, what more can be said?)
  • And have we mentioned? That “President” Bush is talking with outgoing British Prime Minister Tony Blair about taking a role as a Mid-East peace envoy. Despite being fragged about it at home, Blair continues to “strongly defended intervening in Iraq.” (My question though is wasn’t it hard for Blair to talk with his lips on Bush’s ass??)
