Watching West Wing Re-Runs Like A Lonely Housewife Reads Danielle Steele

When Dittoheads Go Bad A 20-year old Illinois man faces federal explosives charges after police searching his apartment found an arsenal of firearms, knives, bomb-making materials, ammunition, threatening personal writings and a "hit list" of prominent Leftists that were "marked to die" including former Attorney General Janet Reno, Michael Moore, Sarah Brady, Rosie O'Donnell, and U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle.

Clear and Present Danger Hawkish author Tom Clancy's latest book "Battle Ready" finds him siding against the war in Iraq, and the research for the book almost found him scrapping with neo-con Richard Perle.
Clancy recalled a prewar encounter in Washington during which he "almost came to blows" with Richard Perle, a Pentagon adviser at the time and a longtime advocate of the invasion. "He was saying how (Secretary of State) Colin Powell was being a wuss because he was overly concerned with the lives of the troops," Clancy said. "And I said, 'Look ..., he's supposed to think that way!' And Perle didn't agree with me on that. People like that worry me."

And By "Terror Threat" We Mean "The Woman We Arrested Last Year"
It seems that one of the "high profile targets" mentioned in yesterday's Chicken Little speech, Aafia Siddiqui, was arrested over a year ago in Pakistan and placed into custody. Check out the FBI statements from this article and try to sync them with the other two. WTF.

Your Commander in Chief, Alfred E. Numan Despite approval ratings at their record low, a quagmire in Iraq and a spill on his big-wheel, Bush is still worry-free and looking on the sunny side of life according to USA Today. You would too if you knew e-voting fraud was going to keep your job.

And By "Liberals" We Mean "Republicans"
The latest Bush ad charges that John Kerry is trying to repeal the Patriot Act due to pressure "by fellow liberals." Who are soem of these "fellow liberals" who have co-sponsored a bill with Kerry to refine the Patriot Act? Republican Senators Larry Craig of Idaho, Michael Crapo of Idaho, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania and John Sununu of New Hampshire. Oh yeah, and Kerry's old buddy Osama Fucking bin Laden.

The Date-Rape of Rhetoric
After the NY Times admitted to using Ahmad Chalabi as a source for pre-war stories, a man who by his own admission lied to the press to bolster an invasion of Iraq on false pretenses, how does NewsMax spin the Grey Lady's correction? "NY Times: Sorry We Weren't More Anti-war" Well, I guess it's true if you follow their logic. Lying about WMDs and creating a phantom threat in Iraq WAS pretty pro-war.

And by "Isolated Incident" We Mean "Widespread Pattern of Abuse" "An Army summary of deaths and mistreatment involving prisoners in American custody in Iraq and Afghanistan shows a widespread pattern of abuse involving more military units than previously known."
