Valerie Plame was the kind of real-life secret agent George Bush dreams of being when he's not too busy pretending to be a cowboy or a fighter pilot. - Bill Maher

No More Holding Hands


The United States on Thursday rejected Saudi King Abdullah's charge that Iraq is under an "illegitimate foreign occupation," and said U.S. troops were there at Iraq's invitation under a United Nations mandate.
...Abdullah surprised Washington on Wednesday by saying at an Arab summit, "In beloved Iraq, blood flows between brothers in the shadow of illegitimate foreign occupation and hateful sectarianism, threatening a civil war."

The US Attorneys Who Weren't Fired


If those eight U.S. attorneys were fired at the behest of Karl Rove for real or imagined disloyalty to the president (and that does seem to be the case), then what were the 85 other prosecutors doing right?



And, indeed, the party that flatters itself that they protect America better is the party that has exhausted the military, left the ports wide open and purposefully outed a CIA agent, Valerie Plame.

That's not treason anymore? Outing a spy? Did I mention it was one of our spies? And how despicable that Bush's lackeys attempted to diminish this crime by belittling her service, like she was just some chick who hung around the CIA. -

Mark Foley Update


Six months after resigning from Congress, former U.S. Rep. Mark Foley remains under criminal investigation for sexually explicit Internet communications with underage boys but has not been charged, authorities said Wednesday.

Valerie Plame's husband told the truth about their lie, so they were willing to jeopardize an entire network of spies to ruin her life. Wow, even the mob doesn't go after your family. - Bill Maher

If he wants my vote, Barack Obama has to stop smiling so much and show me his "war" face. I can't tell if you're selling me your candidacy or Crest White Strips.

Bush Meets War Criminal in Oval Office

Red-faced Bush administration officials were trying to explain yesterday how it was that no one noticed that that fine Russian general -- and alleged war criminal -- who met with President Bush and retired Air Force Gen. Robert Foglesong on Monday in the Oval Office has been accused of overseeing some of the most notorious atrocities against civilians in Chechnya.

"So Congress and the White House headed for a standoff. Neither side willing to give an inch. What's an occupying country to do? Democratic Senator Mark Pryor has the answer, proposing that we pick a withdrawal date but keep it a secret. That way, when we withdraw, the enemy will just be confused." --Jon Stewart
