If It's Friday, This Must Be A News Dump
All the interesting things seem to happen on Fridays: -- Rick Santorum is the first high-profile Republican to break from the herd and say, albeit rather weakly, that Karl Rove does NOT speak for him. (His dicey poll numbers against Casey may well be a factor.) -- CBS ran a story this evening on an Italian judge's ordering the arrest of thirteen CIA agents for kidnaping an imam off the streets of Milan and "renditioning" him to Egypt, where he was "allegedly" tortured. -- Judith Miller, NYT reporter and close personal friend of Iranian agent and convicted embezzler Ahmad Chalabi, has a new mission: Attacking the United Nations. -- And now that Mullah Ashcroft is no longer running DoJ, the Spirit of Justice's draperies have been removed.
I wonder how other rabid Republicans will respond to Santorum... it would be interesting to see the dogs let loose on him, heeheehee.
The GOPers in office can read polls. And Bush's are tanking. Badly. (See the next post.) It's occurring to a lot of them that cuddling up to Bush is probably not the wisest career move.
Rove's rantings remind me of the Dutch boy with his finger in the dike. (Ugh! sorry for that image.)
