Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family & friends of Senator Craig Thomas (R-WY) who lost his battle with leukemia Monday.
  • Scooter Libby is scheduled to be sentenced today… we’ll keep you posted.
  • “It’s as big as Vatican City and makes the foreign embassies dotting the tree-lined streets of Washington, D.C., look like carriage houses, but the barely-finished U.S. embassy in Baghdad is already primed for expansion.” (Sigh… I don’t even know where to begin with what’s wrong with this statement…)
  • “President” Bush’s approval rating in a new Washington Post/ABC News poll sits at 35% while Congress’ approval rating in the same poll fell five points to 39% with a majority of the drop due to frustration among “strong opponents of the war, independents and liberal Democrats.” (Well, duh… remember that honeymoon the Democratically controlled Congress was enjoying? Yeah, it’s over…)
  • Rep. William “cold hard cash” Jefferson (D-LA) was indicted yesterday and Freshman Rep. Steve Kagen (D-WI) issued a statement calling on him to “consider resigning for the good of Congress and for the good of the nation.” (Way to show some balls there Mr. Kagen… now if only Mr. Jefferson would listen…)
  • George P. Bush (yes, there’s another one), a nephew of “President” Bush, has signed an email asking friends and associates to contribute to a possible Fred Thompson presidential campaign… (Wow… we really are starved to make news out of anything aren’t we?)
  • And have we mentioned? “President” Bush is in Germany for the G-8 summit and has quite a bit of foreign butt kissing schmoozing to do. He’ trying to enhance U.S. influence on the “Climate Debate” (which is republican-speak for Global Warming), and is trying to ease ever-mounting ans straining tensions with Russia. And German Chancellor, and Bush back-rub target, Angela Merkel will be there as well. So it’s entirely possible that by the end of the week, the U.S. might have offended even more foreign countries and potentates…
