The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

FRIDAY!!! Three-day weekend!!! Whoo-hoo!!!

  • The DOJ’s Inspector General suggested earlier this week that he is investigating whether or not outgoing-AG Alberto “Albatross” Gonzales gave misleading testimony to Congress… (and here he thought resigning would save him. Odds that Gonzo “suddenly” decides to resign earlier than his Sept. 17th date…)
  • The saga of Sen. Larry Craig isn’t going away anytime soon…
  • Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is open to compromising with republicans over Iraq troop deployment. (Yesterday I said that Democrats need to unify and focus on a single message… it’s clear that an immediate and full withdrawal from Iraq ain’t gonna happen while Commander Cuckoo Bananas is in office, so a compromise may be the only ‘best’ option available. A limiting of troops is better than nothing at this stage of the game…)
  • Health and Human Services has toned down their ads pushing breast-feeding. That’s not so much the thing that struck me in the article as were these words that I never thought I would see… “politically powerful infant formula industry.” (Uh… okay…)
  • And have we mentioned? That the mortgage crisis is ending? “President” Bush is getting involved now… so everything should be hunky-dory within days… (Sarcasm? You think I’m being sarcastic? Whatever gave you that idea????????)
