Murtha Invokes the ‘I’ Word

By |April 30th, 2007|

Murtha on "Face the Nation" Now he's really done it. Yesterday on "Face the Nation" Murtha said the "i" word. That's right impeachment. Is that a blast at Bush's broadside or is Murtha just sending a not so subtle message? Whatever, but it seems like the news is just now catching some attention. Murtha doesn't [...]

No Joy for Maliki

By |April 30th, 2007|

No Joy for Maliki bumped & updated Maliki is in trouble, which means so are we. Now Saudi's King Abdullah is ratcheting up the pressure (and no doubt the presidential panic) by dissing al-Maliki. After calling U.S. efforts in Iraq an "illegitimate occupation" no one should be surprised. In a serious rebuff to U.S. diplomacy, [...]

By now you've likely become aware of the first fall out of the DC Madam story. The reason given for Mr. Tobias' resignation is just classic. It's all for "personal reasons." I'll bet.

Condi the Incompetent Resurfaces

By |April 29th, 2007|

Today Ms. Rice earned the title I gave her many years ago. This woman has been in over her head since Bush appointed her as national security adviser. But this interview on "Face the Nation" strains all reality. She didn't know that we were to "preemptively strike" inside Afghanistan in the summer of 2001? This [...]

Edwards on ‘Global War on Terror’

By |April 28th, 2007|

John Edwards may not have had the most stellar debate night, but he got out in front on something very important. This has been widely missed. I didn't catch it until earlier today (likely because I was dealing with a massive tech crash all day Thursday and beyond). So I wanted to make sure it [...]
