"Pessimism of the intellect, optimism of the will." -- Antonio Gramsci "The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness." -- John Kenneth Galbraith "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts." -- Bertrand Russell

We had the "dog ate my homework" with the missing RNC emails, and now we have it with Gonzo not knowing who was acting AG when Ashcroft was ailing. What's worse, that Gonzo really didn't know, offering another example of his clueless ineptness, or that he did know (is lying) and intended on strong-arming a weak/sick Ashcroft despite the transfer of power to Comey?
This administration's oppressive, chilling effect on scientists is apparently working: "The Smithsonian Institution toned down an exhibit on climate change in the Arctic for fear of angering Congress and the Bush administration, says a former administrator at the museum."
Al Qaeda is now depending on and thriving due to money originating from Iraq: "U.S. officials said that Al Qaeda's command base in Pakistan is increasingly being funded by cash coming out of Iraq, where the terrorist network's operatives are raising substantial sums from donations to the anti-American insurgency as well as kidnappings of wealthy Iraqis and other criminal activity. The influx of money has bolstered Al Qaeda's leadership ranks at a time when the core command is regrouping and reasserting influence over its far-flung network." So our presence in Iraq is bolstering Al Qaeda. Just great.
Regarding the Dems dropping a withdrawal timeline, it's perfectly clear: THEY CAVED!However, Chris Bowers is reserving judgment for now and infers that the story is in fact bogus. Stay tuned.
