Morning gifts…

Thanks, Liam!!! Top White House aide Rove resigns Ok, so someone please tell me: Does “executive privilege” extend to former employees as well? Please say “No.” Please? By the way, in case you haven’t heard, September 15 is the next march on Washington. September 15 Mass March in Washington DC! Come to Washington DC on Read More …

Oh, that’s a nice way to wake up…

I don’t have time to post everything I’m thinking right now. A proper post is coming after I deliver my kid to school this morning. But… I can’t resist sending up a silent (or maybe not so) prayer to whatever force operates in and around our nation’s capitol, and hope we finally got the bastidges: Read More …

It’s too soon for dancing in the streets…

…but at least I know my ballot isn’t one of the ones waiting to be counted. I sat on the fence for several days, my absentee ballot in my hot little hands, but I ultimately decided to go with the electronics. So that’s one less paper ballot to be counted overall. Still, I can’t get Read More …

I should NOT be awake right now…

Oh, and because I simply can’t resist – I hope this is true: Rove Informs White House He Will Be Indicted [Turns out not to be true, unfortunately. Truthout.org is a propaganda site. See this: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/06/13/washington/13cnd-leak.html] (Thanks to Liam for posting the link.) Maybe there’s a little hope out there in the midst of this Read More …

On the political front…

Subject: The President Broke the Law President Bush admitted to personally authorizing thousands of allegedly illegal wiretaps, and he doesn’t plan to stop. Circumventing the Constitution is serious business. This is a big moment. People from across the political spectrum are Read More …

Misc stuff, while I’m waiting for laundry…

Like the conclusion to this: CNN.com: Sources: Prosecutor focusing on Rove Fitzgerald looking into possible perjury in CIA leaks Read More …

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 Read More …

I spoke too soon…

Transcript: McClellan Takes Reporters’ Questions and White House denials on Rove fall silent Democrats call for Bush to fire adviser linked to CIA leak Associated Press Updated: 8:17 a.m. ET July 12, 2005 And here, because I embedded the info in a comment: PERMITS OBTAINED FOR SEPTEMBER 24! TENS OF THOUSANDS OF IMPEACHMENT SUPPORTERS TO Read More …

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 Read More …
