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.

Rove Attacks From The Far Right

Karl Rove is on the attack, this time targeting the blogosphere: “The Internet for the Left of the Democratic Party has served as a way to mobilize hate and anger — hate and anger, first and foremost, at this President and Conservatives, but then also at people within their own party whom they consider to […]

Dan Rather Leaving CBS

Yesterday the news was that CBS would not be renewing Dan Rather’s contract when it expires in November–yet another sign that the era of CBS as a major news organization is over.

I never really got too excited about the effort to unseat Lieberman. Sure, I’d love to see George Bush’s pet Democrat replaced by someone who has a rational position on the war but I see attempts at Democratic control of the Senate as being more important. Plus, I feel that one way or another, Lieberman […]

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 most unusual came via a document sent out by Office of the Secretary of Defense to an assortment of congressional aides, as well as to the Iraqi […]

John Kerry on the Week of Phony Iraq Debate

It’s was Phony Iraq Debate Week in Congress this week. What a show the Republican’s put on — they had a quite a script to read from courtesy of the Pentagon. There were truly some Oscar nomination worthy performances, including Senator Mitch McConnell for “Best Borrowing of Resolution” and Senators Bill Frist and John Cornyn […]

John Kerry: Bring U.S. Troops Home by End of ’06

In an OP/ED in today’s Philadelphia Inquirer, John Kerry writes about his plan to bring the troops home from Iraq by the end of ’06. 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 […]
