Somewhere in the blogging cosmos is another post I wrote yesterday…it disappeared somewhere between typing it and publishing it, so please be on the lookout for it out there; thanks.
- Today is Election Day, and there are a few races to keep an eye on as the day progresses; there are state elections in Kentucky, Mississippi, New Jersey and Virginia… there’s a special Congressional election in OH-05, a solidly republican district… and a handful of others… all that could have far-reaching results – so stay tuned.
- A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll released yesterday shows, with a year to election day, Sen. Clinton (D-NY) remains the person to beat… more on this later.
- The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to approve “President” Bush’s Attorney General nominee, Michael Mukasey, after he promised, if one was enacted by Congress, to enforce a law against waterboarding. That promise won him the support of Sens. Feinstein (D-CA) and Schumer (D-NY), a promise that committee chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said was ‘disingenuous.’ (And the Democrats continue to show no balls whatsoever…)
- AttorneyGate just won’t go away… and it shouldn’t, especially since the White House is the primary reason it’s not going away. By constantly ignoring subpoenas from the House Judiciary Committee, the White House seems to be forcing the hand of Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) into calling for a vote on contempt of Congress citations against COS Joshua Bolten and former legal counsel Harriet Miers. (all fine and good… but the White House’s ignoring of the subpoenas has been going on for far too long now, and the power of calling for a contempt charge is diminishing…)
- And have we mentioned? That the Bush(whacked) Administration is into irony? It’s true. Not only are they “deeply disappointed that Pakistan President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf declared Marshall Law, they went on to say that it is never “reasonable” to “restrict constitutional freedoms in the name of fighting terrorism”… (Ya know, sometimes the irony is so damn rich, that nothing you can say would add anything…)
