The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

One day closer. . .

  • The Democrats have another debate tonight, this time in a city that, as I wrote yesterday, is expected to be a major player in the next election; Las Vegas, Nevada. Pundits Those who are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill say that “frontrunnerHillary Clinton (D-NY) is on the “hot seat” for this debate because, according to CNN, this is the first debate since her “stumble at a debate in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.” (Yes, her answer to the question about driver's licenses for illegal immigrants was, to say the least, convoluted, but the one and only reason it resonated for so long is because the media kept it going for days afterwards. Truth be told, it was not that big of a ‘stumble’, and I think that she will hit back hard tonight at her foes and they may regret making this such a big issue… stay tuned)
  • CNN is reporting that Rep. Dennis Hastert (r-IL) will announce on the House floor that he is retiring from Congress today, triggering a special election to replace him. Let’s hope…
  • Showing that the Democrats may be more than all talk and no substance, the House approved a war-funding bill again, but this time it actually has a timeline for Iraq troop withdrawal… and it’s substantially less than “President” Bush requested… (Game on!)
  • New Attorney General Michael “Don’t call me albatross” Mukasey has already started kissing the administration’s ass jumped into the fray as he told Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy (D-T) that he would urge “President” Bush to veto Leahy’s new surveillance plan… (Wow, that didn’t take long, did it? Thanks again to all the Democrats who voted to confirm this crony who looks to be ready to follow in Gonzales’ dirty-little footprints…)
  • And have we mentioned? That publisher Judith Regan (she of the OJ Simpson book If I Did It) is getting involved in the presidential race? Regan alleges in a lawsuit filed earlier this week that senior executives at News Corp (owners of Fox “News” – big shocker) told her to lie to investigators about her affair with ex-New York Police Commissioner, Rudy Giuliani crony and recent indictment victim Bernard Kerik in order to protect Giuliani's presidential ambitions. (Wow, it’s like a bad soap opera... stay tuned to see what happens next…)
