Thanks, Steve, for the tip!

Democrats to Bush: Don’t pardon Libby

Former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby has been found guilty on four of five counts in his perjury and obstruction of justice trial. CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin said, “He is virtually certain to go to prison if this conviction is upheld.”

DEVELOPING STORY

The sacrificial goat is finished. Now, if they’ll just take out the rest of the bastidges, I’ll be really happy!

Thinking seriously of heading to the Mall on March 17 for the next peace rally. Anyone else interested in coming with me?

999 days left…

999 days left…

…to the next presidential election (give or take a day…).

Just thought I’d mention it.

Oh, lookie. I got a gift…

Poking around my blog feed I ran across a post on the subject of “Scooter” Libby. All I can say is I hope this is a positive sign.

But don’t just take National Journal’s word for it. See what MSNBC has to say on the subject, too.

National Journal: CongressDailyPM – JUDICIARY – Libby: Cheney ‘Authorized’ Leak Of Classified Information [annoyingly behind a paywall] and MSNBC: Libby defense will allege Cheney role

Not enough to do cartwheels over, but it’s enough to give me a warm, fuzzy glow.

On Day 1400…

On Day 1400…

I’ve changed my home page.

I thought some recognition was in order.

Now, if the current administration would just employ the same effort into finding Osama Bin Laden and putting him out of business, I wouldn’t mind so much.

And has anyone noticed anything about the Karl Rove revelation? The outing of Deep Throat is garnering more press activity right now that this.

What hypocrites these mortals be.

“I don’t know of anybody in my administration who leaked classified information,” Bush said in Chicago, where he was on a fund-raising trip. “If somebody did leak classified information, I’d like to know
it, and we’ll take the appropriate action.”

Bush said he is “absolutely confident that the Justice Department will do a good job.”

And that action would be…?


I spoke too soon…

PERMITS OBTAINED FOR SEPTEMBER 24!
TENS OF THOUSANDS OF IMPEACHMENT SUPPORTERS TO SURROUND WHITE HOUSE

Dear EW,

Legal permits have now been obtained on both sides of the White House for the mass demonstration on September 24. This will allow tens of thousands of supporters of the impeachment of George W. Bush to join with the antiwar movement and create a sea of protestors [sic] to surround the White House.

September 24 will be a day to bring your family, your parents, grandparents and children, and as many neighbors and friends as possible together with thousands of others in the the ImpeachBush movement’s most powerful display yet. It will be an opportunity to exercise your First Amendment right to demand that Bush, Cheney and other high officials be held accountable for their criminal conduct.

As we reported last week, recent polls show a dramatic spike in support for impeachment. According to most recent Zogby Poll, 42% of voters – 25% of whom consider themselves Republicans – would support impeachment if Bush lied about Iraq. The tide is clearly turning, but we need to work with ever-greater vigor.

ImpeachBush.org/VoteToImpeach is launching a massive advertising and publicity campaign to promote the September 24 Impeachment contingent at the White House demonstration. We will take out newspaper ads, radio spots, targeted media outreach, and print hundreds of thousands of leaflets, stickers, posters, lawn signs and other outreach materials.

The impeachment campaign will use the information from the Downing Street memos and other known sources that prove the Bush administration engaged in a pattern of lies and deceit to mislead Congress and the people.

We are asking everyone to make a donation to help in the advertising and publicity campaign. This is a huge grassroots effort. We depend on the people who believe in impeachment to fund this historic campaign.

To make a contribution, access the online donation form and the secure server, where you can also get information to write a check: [Dead link]

More than 500,000 people have voted to impeach at the web site VoteToImpeach.org [Dead link]. This has been a remarkable exercise in grassroots democracy. Let’s double that number in the months ahead. We can do it. Each day brings a larger section of the population to the same conclusion: the Bush administration lied. Each day more and more people become outraged at the spiraling death toll in Iraq. Each day, angry and outraged people demand that the elected officials of this country uphold the constitution and use the mechanism of impeachment to hold high officials accountable for their High Crimes and Misdemeanors. We can’t wait for the politicians – the people must act now to create a firestorm of support for impeachment. If you know someone or a few people who would also vote to impeach, encourage them to visit VoteToImpeach.org to cast their ballot.

Time to take a walk down Pennsylvania Avenue, methinks…

This is going to sound crass, so please forgive me in advance…

This is going to sound crass, so please forgive me in advance…

…and please understand that I think *any* life wasted is a crime….

But why is it that we’re suddenly so very shocked at the bombs that have gone off today? After all, there were decades when bombs went off in London, which got barely a notice on our own local news. But then, that was the IRA, and it was England’s problem. Nothing to do with us.

Now that we’re in the “War on Terrorism” the press is having a field day. Continue reading “This is going to sound crass, so please forgive me in advance…”

Oh, goody!

Oh, goody!

Reports Reveal Karl Rove Named in Matt Cooper Documents

Almost makes up for the O’Connor resignation. I haven’t felt this hopeful since I last watched Dave.

Now, if I can just finalize the cast list for my show, I’ll be all set…
