The only problem with firing all the attorney's who weren't "loyal Bushies" and who were investigating Republicans--Lam--or wouldn't smear Democrats--Iglesias?
The Explainer didn't do his job. But then, does he ever? From Bush's speech today at 5:45: Read more about Bush to Congress on DAs: Cheney yourself
(Let's not repeat that virulent meme, "voter fraud," eh? Since, let's face it, that's a felony, and not many people want to risk a felony to vote. No matter how much the Republicans would like to make that dream come true. And if somebody comes up with something catchier than "voter disenfranchisement" I'd like to hear it.)
Republicans, not content with Katrina, continue their mission to destroy New Orleans, this time with faulty pumps from Jeb Bush
[I'm saying "cities" instead of "the country," because the cities are the part of the country that's in danger. All the ports are in danger from loose nukes and dirty bombs, and nobody's going to lob a nuclear weapon into some Republican stronghold like the middle of Wyoming.]
The rich winger who bought the Inky thinks that when we repudiate Rick "Down Boy" Santorum (R-Let's Have the Kids Handle the Dead Fetus) at the polls, we're really saying that we want to read him in the editorial pages of the sadly diminished Inky.

Department of Veterans Affairs doctors are furious over a recent decision by the Pentagon to block their access to medical information needed to treat severely injured troops arriving at VA hospitals from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Q.What are you doing differently in your job, substantively or stylistically, in 2007 compared with 2006, before the election?
But apparently his handlers have concerns:
Rudolph W. Giuliana learned that lesson again yesterday when a "vulnerability study," including warnings about his "weirdness factor" and other perceived liabilities, surfaced from his second campaign for New York mayor, 14 years ago.
Yes, Denny the Hutt is still in action, and apparently believes he's a draw for Republican candidates. No doubt he is.
[Hastert] recently endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination, signaling that he may play a public role in the former Massachusetts governor's campaign, at least in helping court Chicago-area donors.
Republicans block Iraq war debate. So, what are the anti-Democrats afraid of?
Of course, they're all afraid of actual military service, for themselves or their kids, we know that ("other priorities"), but I meant, but why would the anti-Democrats be nervous about going on the record and giving Bush's "new way forward" an "up-or-down" vote of confidence?
