WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A former New York Times reporter who went to jail for refusing to reveal who leaked the name of a CIA operative is expected to take the stand Tuesday in the perjury trial of Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff.

Lawyer: Libby said he wasn't CIA leaker
MSNBC -1-30-07
WASHINGTON - Amid the furor over the 2003 leak of a CIA operative’s identity, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby


I wonder when Bush will pardon Scooter Libby and all the other president's men?





"Vice President Cheney lashed out at Hillary Clinton the other day. He said on CNN that he doesn't believe Hillary would be a good president. I can understand that. I mean, his administration has raised the bar so high." --Jay Leno

 “Well, President Bush now says he wants more money for the reconstruction of Iraq. How come the only place where Republicans think government programs can help people is in Iraq?” - Jay Leno



Are These Contradicting Statements by Ari Fleischer?


Fleischer testified under an immunity agreement with prosecutors. He said he sought the deal after reading about the investigation and worrying, ``Oh my God. Did I somehow play a role in outing a CIA operative?'' He insisted he believed throughout that the information was not classified.




"Ambassador Wilson was sent by his wife. His wife works at the CIA," Fleischer recalled Libby saying. Libby said the information was "hush-hush, on the Q-T," Fleischer said.

Disturbing News


I'm Glad Hillary Didn't Stay Home and Bake Cookies


"The President has said this is going to be left to his successor. I think it's the height of irresponsibility, and I really resent it. This was his decision to go to war; he went with an ill-conceived plan, an incompetently executed strategy, and we should expect him to extricate our country from this before he leaves office."- Hillary Clinton






Air America and Al Franken



Air America's new owner will be Stephen Green, 69, a real-estate investor who agreed yesterday to buy it for an undisclosed sum and bring it out of bankruptcy...Franken gave his seal of approval to the deal, noting that Mark Green is "a committed liberal" and his brother "is very wealthy."

No reason was given for Franken's Feb. 14 departure, but court papers show he's owed more than $360,000 in back wages.



"Oh, President Bush also told Congress, 'Each of us is guided by our own convictions.' And then a Republican says, 'Don't mention convictions, whatever you do! Don't say the word conviction!'" - Jay Leno

Republican Shenanigans



"I'm not that good at pronouncing words anyway." - George W. Bush's reason he incorrectly called the "Democrat majority" instead of the correct version "Democratic majority" in his state of the union address

Dear Lisa,

Regarding this quote you included in your webpage, http://allhatnocattle.net  on Monday, January 29th:

"President Bush also says he's going to ask Congress for $10 billion more for Afghanistan: $10 billion. You know, I got a solution for the people of New Orleans. Put on turbans, throw rocks at each other, change your name to 'Kabul,' you'll get $10 billion like that. Okay?" - Jay Leno

I felt I had to reply.... this stereotyping as a terrorist a person based on their wearing a turban is damaging on many levels. There is a presumption, and a frame is drawn around one's perception.

Most of the people you will run across in the United States who are wearing a turban are Sikhs. I hope you get to know a few of us. We want to stand out in the way that we dress so that you will know who is standing up to defend the defenseless, and to protect the honor and dignity of all, regardless of faith.




Thanks for writing, Ravi.


I am very familiar with your beautiful culture.  Oddly enough my father served three years in India during WWII.  He often went incognito as a Sikh, as he was tall with chiseled features and fit right in delivering messages for the Army.


My take on that one liner is -- this administration funds wars and does not fund a natural disaster that destroyed New Orleans. And Jay Leno used the Afghan turban, etc. as comedic visual tools.  I envisioned a street rapper with his baseball cap on sideways switching to a blue turban in order to get help.  It made me chuckle.


We give billions to Israel too. If we were at war with them Leno might have said, "President Bush also says he's going to ask Congress for $10 billion more for Israel: $10 billion. You know, I got a solution for the people of New Orleans. Put on yarmulkes, build a fence, change your name to 'Morrie,' you'll get $10 billion like that. Okay?" - Jay Leno


The truth is any headwear other than cowboy hats, football helmets and baseball caps are funny to most 'Mericans.


No intent of stereotyping was intended in producing this website, sans untruthtellers.

Being Dick Cheney


"Well, I'm the vice president, and they're not,'' Vice President Dick Cheney said with a laugh at the close of a long interview, asked how he handles criticism from the likes of Brent Scowcroft, former national security adviser, an old associate who has said that he does not know Cheney anymore.

Paul Wolfowitz Bringing Honor and Dignity to a Mosque



As president of the World Bank, Paul Wolfowitz is clearly not short of a buck or two. So is he just too time-poor to get down to his local mall and invest in a new pair of socks? Known for his sharp suits and hawkish views, he was snapped revealing his inner slob during a visit to the Selimiye mosque in Edirne, western Turkey. The images offered proof - if it were ever needed - that even the big toenails of the world's debatably great and good are best kept under wraps.
