Just watched Christie Todd Whitman shut out Tim Russert and some other journalist on Jeopardy. The woman is very intelligent.. which of course we knew by how fast she got out of the Administration.

Bush's feelings about torture, killing 'criminals'

Straight from the top, my friends. The man could care less about what happened over there, he's just upset it got out.

This was cut from my favorite political insider's blog,

This from George Will's columnof August 12th, 1999 ...

[Tucker] Carlson reports asking Bush whether he met with any persons who came to Texas to protest the execution of the murderer Karla Faye Tucker. Bush said no, adding: "I watched (Larry King's) interview with (Tucker), though. He asked her real difficult questions, like 'What would you say to Governor Bush?' " Carlson asked, "What was her answer?" and writes:

" 'Please,' Bush whimpers, his lips pursed in mock desperation, 'don't kill me.' "

Hughes, who says Bush's decision not to commute Tucker's sentence was "very difficult and very emotional," says Carlson's report is "a total misread" of Bush. Carlson, who describes Bush as "smirking," says: "I took it down as he said it."

The adventures of a girl and her moth

I have begun reading The Golden Compass. At that end of chapter one, I began to feel that familiar sucking sensation.

Down the rabbit-hole, and into the book!

General TAGUBA.. TAGUBA Dammit!

Holy dictionary, what the heck is wrong with Senatorial pronunciation skills?

I've heard so far three different versions of Taguba's name, and four different pronunciations of Abu Ghraib.

My favorites so far.. Tagabu and Abu Gabi..

Abia abia abia.. that's all, folks!
