Hat tip to DottiJ for this classic photo of White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, left, and White House Counselor Dan Barlett on a little helicopter trip through the Greenzone in Baghdad earlier this week. Neither of them look to happy to be along for the ride.

Stephen Colbert “Interviews” An All Too Typical GOP Politician

If anyone didn’t catch Comedy Central’s Colbert Report last night, you missed a classic “interview”. Stephen Colbert interviewed what today sadly passes for a typical GOP politician.

The last part of the interview where they discuss the Ten Commandments is absolutely hilarious! You’ll love how this idiot answers both of Stephen’s questions. And yet, some Americans actually continue to vote for these people. Simply amazing…

Tip of the hat to CrooksAndLiars for providing the video clip of Colbert’s interview of Congressman Westmoreland of GA’s 8th district. The “rough transcript” they include only contains a tiny fragment of the Ten Commandments portion, so skip it and just watch the video.

Political Talking Points, From Pentagon Office, May Have Been Illegal

ABC News reports that the now famed talking points distributed by the Pentagon for the Republican’s to use during “Phony Iraq Debate Week” may have been illegal.

The right wing has been making distortions through their Pentagon “play book” about Kerry’s plan and the rightwing blogosphere even floated the notion that the forced Senate vote yesterday on […]

Hotline’s Blogometer and Right Wing Blogs Get it Wrong on Iraq Vote

Hotline’s Blogometer is making much ado about nothing today, with their claim that “Righty bloggers celebrated the defeat of Sen. John Kerry’s (D-MA) Iraq-withdrawal resolution.” Not only is Blogometer wrong on the Iraq vote that went down yesterday, so are the “Righty bloggers” who claim it was “John Kerry’s (D-MA) Iraq-withdrawal resolution.” The spin from […]

Busy, Busy GOP Engineers House Vote on Iraq Withdrawal

Right out the Pentagon play book, the House GOP “approved a nonbinding resolution that praises U.S. troops, labels the Iraq war part of the larger global fight against terrorism and says an “arbitrary date for the withdrawal or redeployment” of troops is not in the national interest.” The GOP may have control of the House […]

Larry Johnson: Rove Sacrifices Our Troops on the Altar of Republican Politics with Attacks on Kerry and Murtha

OUCH! Larry Johnson, rips “Porcine Draft Dodger–Karl Rove” to shreds on No Quarter for his assault on John Kerry and John Murtha earlier this week… When decorated war veterans like John Murtha and John Kerry dare to challenge the incompetence of the Administration in its prosecution of the war in Iraq and its wildly chaotic […]
