Some News Coverage Here, Please

  • And what is the matter with John McCain? Dear Mr McCain, James Dobson and his minions are never going to support a man of reason for president. Please don't betray your principles and start pandering to them... It's demeaning and it's just so icky to watch.
  • Finally (I should just link to the entire TPM blog instead of piecemeal references but, dang, they're on a roll!), I hope someone in the media is paying attention to Bush's systematic replacement of US Attorneys. Apparently -- get this -- Republicans managed to get a last minute provision slipped into the Patriot Act to allow US Attorneys to be replaced without Senate oversight. They did this by making a last minute change during "a select Republicans-only meeting after the House and Senate had voted on earlier versions." Think about that for a minute, please. They slipped this into the f*ing Patriot Act. You remember that one, right? It's the if-you-don't-support-it-then-you-hate-America bill. Otherwise know as the the-government-would-NEVER-abuse-its-power bill. Otherwise known as the screw-the-constitution-and-your-civil-liberties-or-we're-all-going-to-die bill. Jesus H Christ, the irony hurts my brain.
