If he didn't make so much as host of MSNBC's Countdown, Keith Olbermann might be asking some very prominent lawmakers for speechwriting fees.  That's because he's becoming the go-to guy for antiwar rhetoric. And, we're told, Olbermann's show-ending "special comments" have been entered into the Congressional Record at least twice.

Patrick Rhode, who was chief of staff and deputy director of FEMA under Michael Brown, was hired as a senior advisor to NASA Administrator Michael Griffin on communications issues, NASA spokesman David Mould said.

Dubya’s bellicose reign
Of great terror and shame? Please disband it.

A baby Slender Loris is seen in this undated handout image released by the Zoological Society of London on January 15, 2007. Scientists launched a bid on Tuesday to save some of the world's rarest and most neglected creatures from extinction. With an initial list of just 10, including a venomous shrew-like creature, an egg-laying mammal and the world's smallest bat, the programme will give last ditch conservation aid where to date there has been little or none.
