The Tuesday 'BushWhack'ing

Not FDA approved...

  • Thought-provoking article about what could happen to Iraq when US forces leave. It has a rather right-wing tone to it, but it’s still interesting nonetheless… give it a read HERE.
  • According to a congressional report, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is suffering from a shortage of inspectors that is resulting in less than 1% (1%!! of food being inspected… and the situation is likely to get worse… (Can this administration do anything???)
  • More than a week after his name became synonymous with the DC Madam case, Sen. David Vitter (r-LA) came out of seclusion and attended a press conference with his wife. The only reason I’m mentioning this is because Vitter is a staunch social conservative and gave some very outspoken condemnation towards Bill Clinton when his affair with Monica Lewinsky came to light… (I love irony; love it, love it, love it…)
  • Senate Dem leaders are looking to have an all-night session tonight in an attempt to hack away at republican’s spinelessness towards “President” Bush's Iraq war strategy. Supporters of the war (I know, I can’t believe there are still some left) responded by threatening a permanent Iraq filibuster while Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed “an automatic 60-vote threshold for all key Iraq amendments.” (Sigh…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the 2008 presidential race is still going on? Obama is trying to widen support… Edwards is trying to put focus on poverty… Clinton just picked up an endorsement, from Joe Wilson… and on the republican side…
