    President Bush: "Who me?"

    What do you think of this from today's New York Daily News?http://www.nydailynews.com/front/story/357107p-304312c.htmlSome are using this story to go after Bush's and McClelland's statements about Rove, Libby, and leakers in general.   Horrors!  This proves that they must be disengenuous! My take on it is...

    As If We Needed Any More Bad News...

    For an administration that views every problem as one that can be managed with spin; with the right public relations ploy, Karen Hughes is a no-brainer (pun intended).This is a woman who "feminized" Bush -- taught him to always say...

    A Song for September 24th
