Cheney's Daughter Chimes In



 Waterboarding was not used to produce intelligence that linked Iraq to al Qaeda in the run-up to the war in Iraq, former Vice President Dick Cheney's daughter said Sunday.


"Does this name ring a bell -- evil Dick Cheney? He's in New York City. He's on another one of his stops on his 'Don't Say I Didn't Warn You Tour.' And he is in New York City. And he has one of those crazy, embarrassing New York City moments. He's driving in a cab. And it turns out the cabdriver is somebody Cheney had waterboarded. It was crazy." --David Letterman

Subject: Panetta and Karl Rove


Hi Lisa: This is sort of old news but Don Monkerud is a local writer and
has been featured in Smirking Chimp and other blogs. He is a retired
community college professor.


This column appeared in the Watsonville, California, Register-Pajaronian.
(that is a strange name for a paper but 'pajaro' is Spanish for bird and
that's the name of our valley, so named by the Portola Expedition of
Spanish who were traveling up the coast trying to find San Francisco Bay.
When they crossed our river they not only saw sea gulls but also Indian
totems of birds on tall poles.


The Panetta Institute is now headed by
Sylvia Panetta and is going on with it's wonderful series of talks with
important people. Frank Sesno from CNN was a good moderator, especially
when Rove got his hackles up and gave him a blistering few minutes.
As a current comment, I'm not happy with  Leon Panetta for taking the part
of the CIA so strongly in this Nancy Pelosi flap.



Thanks for writing Alice. Loved the article about Rove.


I understand Panetta standing up for the CIA.


Speaker Nancy Pelosi should have chosen her words more carefully but she isn't the best communicator. That was an awful press conference she held. She looked and sounded guilty.


Pelosi has been shooting herself in the foot with many Democrats since she took "impeachment off the table".


It's sad to watch the first female speaker of the House blowing in the wind.


I hope she is innocent this because Democrats don't need this!

GOP Infighting Continues



A combative Lindsey Graham got into a sharp back-and-forth with some audience members at the South Carolina GOP convention on Saturday as he made the case for an open-tent Republican party.



"To raise money for California, Governor Schwarzenegger says he's willing to sell some of the state's aging landmarks, like San Quentin Prison. So far, the only bid has come from Dick Cheney. Apparently, he wants to use it as a vacation home in the summer. 'I can just relax in the atmosphere.'" --Craig Ferguson



Subject: Miss California


Hi Lisa,

With Carrie Prejean aka Miss California in the news, I'm surprised our buddy Joe Scarborough didn't offer his laser like insight on the Miss California mess. Joe was the lawyer for a beauty pageant when he first ran for Congress in 1994. Hmmm, so odd he wouldn't give us his "experienced" insight.

I'm sure you already knew.

Lannie - Pensacola, FL


Yes, I did know that Joe's only real "lawyering" experience was for some "family connected beauty pageant" before he became a Congressman.


If I were him I wouldn't admit it either! lol Hell, we may find out how stupid the voters of Pensacola were to put such an inexperienced conservative political hack in office.


He was our Sarah Palin, wasn't he? Hell, he still is.

Didn't They Try This Before? New York Times To Charge for Web Content


The New York Times is reportedly close to deciding on some kind of paid-Web strategy, the New York Observer reported today.

The paper states that Executive Editor Bill Keller told staffers on Wednesday that two proposals were being "strongly considered."

"One includes a 'meter system,' in which the reader can roam freely on the Web site until hitting a predetermined limit of word-count or page views, after which a meter will start running and the reader is charged for movement on the site thereafter," the Observer said.

Abortion foes promise heckuva welcome for Obama at Notre Dame
WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama ventures to America's foremost Roman Catholic university, where the country's deep divisions over abortion and stem-cell research have moved to the forefront in a time of war and recession.

A storm blew up immediately after the University of Notre Dame invited Obama to address Sunday's commencement exercises. It still rages, with anti-abortion activists promising to disrupt the president's appearance, where he was to receive an honorary degree.

Gay marriage not likely in Russia anytime soon
MOSCOW (AP) – Riot police violently broke up several gay rights demonstrations in Moscow on Saturday, hauling away scores of protesters hours before the Russian capital hosted a major international pop music competition.

City officials had warned they would not tolerate marches or rallies supporting the rights of gays and lesbians. Activists had targeted Moscow, which was holding the finals of the Eurovision song contest on Saturday, to press their claims that Russia officially sanctions homophobia.

Surprise, surprise: Republicans back CIA in dispute with Pelosi
WASHINGTON (AP) – Congressional Republicans are rushing to defend the CIA after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the spy agency of misleading her and other lawmakers about its use of waterboarding during the Bush administration.

The issue of what did the speaker know about the interrogation method — and when did she know it — has deepened the fault lines between the two political parties. Pelosi was unequivocal about a CIA briefing she received in the fall of 2002.

Republican candidate claims he really likes Jews
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A Republican candidate for Senate from Arkansas reportedly referred to Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer as "that Jew" during a recent appearance before a Republican group.

State Sen. Kim Hendren told The Associated Press on Thursday that he was wrong to refer to Schumer's religious affiliation during a Pulaski County Republican Committee meeting last week. Hendren said he doesn't remember the exact wording of his comment, but he was quoted by conservative blogger Jason Tolbert as calling Schumer "that Jew."

"I ought not to have referred to it at all," Hendren told the AP. "When I referred to him as Jewish, it wasn't because I don't like Jewish people."

You’re damn right it will inflame people – and it should
(POLITICO) – In a dramatic, high-profile reversal for his young administration, President Barack Obama is seeking to block the release of 44 photographs depicting abuse of detainees in U.S. military custody in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“The publication of these photos would not add any additional benefit to our understanding of what was carried out in the past by small number of individuals,” the president told reporters Wednesday as he left the White House on a two-day trip to the Southwest.

“In fact,' he said, "the most direct consequence of releasing them, I believe, would be to further inflame anti-American opinion and to put our troops in greater danger.”

Vitter drops opposition to FEMA boss, but still likes hookers

WASHINGTON (AP) – A Louisiana Republican has agreed to stop blocking the White House's pick to lead FEMA amid bipartisan criticism that he was leaving the agency vulnerable just a few weeks away from hurricane season.

Sen. David Vitter had put a hold on confirming Craig Fugate at the Federal Emergency Management Agency until FEMA officials provided answers on several lingering questions involving Hurricane Katrina rebuilding.

With hurricane season starting June 1, Vitter's delay had won support from some local officials and the Louisiana Floodplain Management Association, who want FEMA to take a second look at parts of southern Louisiana that it has labeled high-risk flood zones ineligible for rebuilding funds.

Cheney prefers chickenhawk Limbaugh over warrior Powell for future of GOP
WASHINGTON (AP) – Dick Cheney made clear Sunday he'd rather follow firebrand broadcaster Rush Limbaugh than former Joint Chiefs chairman Colin Powell into political battle over the future of the Republican Party.

Even as Cheney embraced efforts to expand the party by ex-Govs. Jeb Bush of Florida and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and the House's No. 2 Republican, Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, the former vice president appeared to write his one-time colleague Powell out of the GOP.

Asked about recent verbal broadsides between Limbaugh and Powell, Cheney said, "If I had to choose in terms of being a Republican, I'd go with Rush Limbaugh. My take on it was Colin had already left the party. I didn't know he was still a Republican."



"I think the head's in the wrong place."
