At what point do progressives stop being Democrats' whipped dogs and start acting like a movement capable of putting the Dems in their proper place as the party of the people? David Sirota wrote today about Obama's latest call to increase war spending beyond its already ludicrous proportions. Read below the fold...

So, as far as I can tell, Rep. Jane Harman [D-Ca] was conspiring with the Israelis to drop some spy charges in exchange for some lobbying on her behalf, and Alberto Gonzales had an NSA warrantless wiretap™ (wait for it) on her phone and overheard the deal. Read below the fold...

How is it possible that terror is mixed in with children and even force children to live within 'terrorilitary' a word I made up to suit my opinion that it is wrong to allow children to live within the perimeter of terror-operation against the original inhabitants of a territory. We want Hamas out of Lebanon we want them out of the land of the Palestine and we demand they retreat from firing anymore rockets into the land of Israel and its inhabitants of Arabs and Jews and others who live in peace.

So reading some email discussions, I was reminded of the old DFH saying: the first person at the meeting to suggest violence is the plant. Time-tested, that one is. Just sayin.
Meanwhile, Terrance rants well about getting our pols to say no to more Jesusjuice in public discourse.

Each week, conservatives find a new way to answer Chubby Checker's immortal question, "how low can you go?"
The sleaze of the GOP — and the Religious Right and MSM that enable them — is an ever-opening flower.
What can we do at this point but stare in awe, like Grant Williams at the end of The Incredible Shrinking Man, beholding the vastness of it all?
It's not nice to brag, but I once got an A+ in Typing, back when typing was for typewriters. I simply cannot, however, write about this stuff as fast as it whizzes by. Read below the fold...

Armitage was the source of Novak's leak. And Rove was Novak's confirmation.
So sayeth Pravda on the Potomac:
The leak of information about an undercover CIA employee that provoked a special prosecutor's investigation of senior White House officials came from then-Deputy Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage, according to a former Armitage colleague at the department. Read below the fold...

Inspired by ReddHedd, I went and read John Dickerson's articles about how the White House outed Valerie Plame. I thought it would make things simpler if I made a scorecard that shows the players in the story that Dickerson tells, and the nature of their contacts with the press, as Dickerson describes them: Read below the fold...

The Washington Post has handed us a wonderful Christmas gift:

Sure, we always knew that--but Novak actually said it:
"I'm confident the president knows who the source is," Novak told a luncheon audience at the John Locke Foundation in Raleigh on Tuesday. "I'd be amazed if he doesn't."
"So I say, 'Don't bug me. Don't bug Bob Woodward. Bug the president [SIC] as to whether he should reveal who the source is.' " Read below the fold...

I mean, of course, besides preparing his legal case against the Libby known as Scooter? We'll get to John Dean later.
I came down more on the side of those who argued the Libby indictment was pretty much going to be it, and that Mr. Rove, ever so Protean, ever so oily, ever so slippery, had managed to slipe-slide-slither through one of those tiny teensy cracks in a wall that looked barely the depth of the about-to-peel paint.
