The Tuesday ‘BushWhack’ing

Late morning… but here ya go;

  • The Feds are going forward into their investigation of Sen. Ted “Tubes” Stevens (r-AK) and they ARE using the whole fist…
  • Vice President Dick “President” Cheney gave an interview to CBS Radio yesterday where he gave his support to AG Gonzales (big surprise right) while arguing that Gonzales’ credibility is not damaged and also said that he disagreed with the jury's verdict in the Scooter Libby trial… Libby was Cheney’s former ass-kisser COS. (So tell me Dick… what color is the sky in your world?)
  • The people that said new British Prime Minister Gordon Brown won’t be a Bush-lapdog like Tony Blair may have been mistaken as the two, in their first meeting, strove to keep a unified front over Iraq… (no word if Brown slobbered all over Bush like Blair ever did…)
  • No Child Left Behind is up for renewal… if you want more on it, go to the Cato Daily Commentary HERE. Yes… I’m pointing you to an op-ed by the Cato Institute…
  • Is a split among Democrats in the House about Iraq war strategy a possibility if Gen. David Petraeus gives a good report in September? House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC) believes so… and he wants his fellow Dems to tread lightly until the report is delivered… (Hmmmm… part of me thinks that he could be right, part of me thinks that he’s been brainwashed by Lieberman…)
  • And have we mentioned? That more people under the age of 30, 65%, are “paying at least some attention” to the incredibly-early 2008 presidential campaign. ” The numbers, according to a New York Times/CBS News poll, are up dramatically from July 2003, when a scant 36% of those under age 30 were paying attention. (That’s all fine and good, but my question is this; can it sustain all the way to the election. We’re 15 months away from the election, and the campaigning has started earlier this year than ever before. Will people, not just under 30 mind you, get tired of the campaign and tune out? It’s possible, so stay tuned…)
