  • Another former Reagan official offering up some fairly harsh words about King GW.

  • Speaking of the King, this past Sunday's Boston Globe reported how GW has conveniently ignored or disobeyed more than 750 laws since he took office. This story is one of the most outrageous so far in 2006 -- and that's saying something.

  • Same in Canada as it is here:
    OTTAWA — The media will be banned from CFB Trenton today when the bodies of four Canadian soldiers killed over the weekend in Afghanistan return home.

    The decision to mirror a practice that is controversial in the United States follows an announcement on Sunday that the flag on the Peace Tower will not be flown at half-mast to mark the deaths.

    The two events have some in opposition accusing the Conservative government of a deliberate attempt to limit public knowledge of the human cost of Canada's mission in Afghanistan.
  • Another GW crony now under criminal investigation -- when will it end?

  • More revealed bungling. Apparently, Bush had the chance to kill Zarqawi, with zero chance of killing innocent civilians, and instead he passed. The -- get this -- proposed reason: not wanting to annoy the French. Are you kidding me?

  • King Cheney: "As the Bush administration has dramatically accelerated the classification of information as 'top secret' or 'confidential,' one office is refusing to report on its annual activity in classifying documents: the office of Vice President Dick Cheney. A standing executive order, strengthened by President Bush in 2003, requires all agencies and 'any other entity within the executive branch' to provide an annual accounting of their classification of documents."

    Dick the dick just keeps giving us the big middle finger.

  • Hey, look who's for the possibility of a windfall profits tax: "Trent Lott of Mississippi, told CNN's 'Late Edition' that he was not dismissing the idea of a windfall profits tax. 'This may come as a shock to you, but I'm going keep my options open,' he said." Boy, what sucking up to voters will do to a partisan hack....

  • Oil lobbyist J. Bennett Johnson recently stated, "We'd see gasoline prices above $5 or $6, crude oil above $100 [per barrel] if we bomb Iran."

    Here's the conundrum for GW: wag-the-dog bombing of Iran pre-November election vs. doing so and further driving up gas prices, thus infuriating voters. And don't forget, the price of oil has been further elevated for years thanks to Iraq's decline in production (I thought we were told the Iraq war would pay for itself in petro dollars??).
