Wanker Of The Day

AP reporter Laurie Kellman:

On Friday, Mukasey said he would not refer the citations to a grand jury and that neither Bolten nor Miers had committed a crime. Pelosi then announced that she has given the Judiciary Committee authority to sue Bolten and Miers in federal court.

The reasons for the Democrats’ two-pronged approach were about much more than the balance of power. They were unmistakably political, a point the White House highlighted in its response.

Democrats did not even spend much energy denying it.

Democratic aides involved in the progression of the contempt citation acknowledged its political benefits, notably cheering up a base demoralized by Pelosi’s inability to get the caucus to force Bush to begin withdrawing troops from Iraq.

Sure, it had absolutely nothing at all to do with upholding the rule of law.

ABAwesome

Apparently, that new Will Ferrell movie has given ESPN Page 2’s sports uniform columnist/blogger(!) an excuse to rhapsodize about the styles of the ABA. And I have to say, it’s some pretty fascinating stuff. Be sure to click on as many links as possible, especially the logos.

President McCain Won’t Like This

We’re supposed to be in Iraq for 10,000 years, dammit! We don’t want an embassy that crumbles to dust in 10!

New documents released by Chairman Waxman identify “critical” and “major” deficiencies in the construction of the new U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, raising questions about the decision of the State Department to certify in December that the Embassy compound was “substantially complete.”

Documents and Links

Oh well. Maybe it’s some kind of coded goodwill gesture to the Iraqis: “The Americans have built their embassy so poorly, it is obvious that they do not intend to stay here long! And we can always use more parking lots!”
