The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • The no-confidence vote against Attorney General Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales went down in defeat in the Senate as republicans who won’t defend Bush but saw this as a “political stunt.” (Wow… a lot of them favor Gonzales leaving the AG position but none of them want to do anything about. Way to stand by your convictions there guys …)
  • A new poll shows that Hillary Clinton (D-NY) owes her lead in the presidential race to women voters…(well, duhhhhhhh….)
  • “President” Bush is SO desperate to have one of his policies actually, you know; work that he’s making a “rare” trip to Capitol Hill to twist some arms urge Senators to vote for his immigration bill. (Personally, I don’t think this will work. The bill is too polarizing within his own party, and I highly doubt Bush’s political skills at this point in his presidency…. Yes, I’ve always doubted his skills, but now, with his approval numbers in the cellar, the Iraq war, and the albatross around his neck that IS Gonzales, he has NO political capital to spend. Guess he’ll have to be satisfied with “disciplining” GSA Chief Lurirta “Cookies” Doan… does that come with its own S&M gear?)
  • Special Prosecutor Patrick “Next AG Under a Dem President” Fitzgerald is urging the judge to send Scooter Libby directly to jail without passing ‘Go’ OR collecting $200.
  • And have we mentioned? That Sen. Tim Johnson’s (D-SD) doctors are saying that he will be able to fully resume his senatorial duties soon? While that is good news for the Democrats who have missed his voice, it’s absolutely terrific and fantastic news for him and his family… and nothing else needs to be said…
