Here's a shock -- UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Mar 23, 2007 at 11:18 PM

More proof that Alberto The Torturer is a liar. Isn't it time for Al Bu Graib and Tim to take a hike? (Yes, I saw Tim's time on AETN. He dodged all meaningful questions. If he'll lie about a girlfriend, do you trust him to enforce civil rights laws?)

Here's NY Times on the latest lie in which the nation's top justice official was caught.

UPDATE: And here's a good McClatchy piece developing the theme that the U.S. attorney changeovers were about putting people unfriendlyh to the voting rights act in important positions. Why? To discourage minority voting, an activity in which Tim Griffin appears to have been deeply involved. To Republicans like Karl Rove (Griffin's godfather), it is a fraud if blacks and Hispanics vote because they generally vote Democratic.

  • Another Republican miracle-working governor

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
