The Weekly Standard has an article on blogs and how theyre shaping up to effect the race for President

Code name: Operation Innocent Images. While the FBI was incapable of finding Eric Rudolph as he camped out in the back yards of North Carolinians over the past five years, they were, it seems, able to pick up the terminology used by teenaged suburban girls. According to the Washington Post, three eighth-grade girls in the DC area have been quizzing their local g-men on things such as who they feel is hot (not George Clooney) and what they think is cool (pink toenail polish). I dont know about you, but I feel safer knowing that the legacy of the toenail-painting J Edgar Hoover is living on at the FBI

And Martha I just want to focus on my salad Stewart finally got indicted on nine counts of insider trading and obstruction of justice. I just heard an attorney on TV saying that this whole thing could be explained in one word: sexism. Apparently, thats going to be her asinine strategy, to claim that she never had a chance in this world dominated by powerful men who were out to crush her. It makes me want to vomit. Shes got to have balls to come up with something like this when there are real woman all over the place who really are dealing with the effects of sexism every day

The Citizen Kane of our times: Fox is finally allowing us to see a few clips from the upcoming From Justin to Kelly (which all the young girls and FBI agents are calling J2K)

Paul Krugman thinks that we should call lies what they are, lies. Heres a clip:

It’s no answer to say that Saddam was a murderous tyrant. I could point out that many of the neoconservatives who fomented this war were nonchalant, or worse, about mass murders by Central American death squads in the 1980’s. But the important point is that this isn’t about Saddam: it’s about us. The public was told that Saddam posed an imminent threat. If that claim was fraudulent, the selling of the war is arguably the worst scandal in American political history worse than Watergate, worse than Iran-contra. Indeed, the idea that we were deceived into war makes many commentators so uncomfortable that they refuse to admit the possibility.

But here’s the thought that should make those commentators really uncomfortable. Suppose that this administration did con us into war. And suppose that it is not held accountable for its deceptions, so Mr. Bush can fight what Mr. Hastings calls a “khaki election” next year. In that case, our political system has become utterly, and perhaps irrevocably, corrupted.

And, a reader by the name of Adam writes in with these three links on Laura Callahan, a fairly high up official in the Bush administrations Office of Homeland Security. Apparently, it turns out that her graduate degree came by way of a shady, religious diploma mill.(1, 2, 3)

Im not as terribly upset as Adam is over this. While it might be true that she only wrote one paper and sent in a check in order to obtain her phd, my suspicion is that she worked harder than Bush did at Yale.
