Joseph L. Galloway of McClatchy Newspapers asks, "Why is it that the Bush administration, in its dying throes, looks remarkably more like an organized crime ring than one of the arms of the American government?"

Sara Robinson says we had better resist our American tendency to sweep the horror facing this nation from the wreckage of the Bush Administration under the rug.

Jeff Fecke on Republican Jesus Fred Thompson's past as a lobbyist for the National Family Planning and Reproductive Health Association. But why should this matter? It's only flip-flopping if a Democrat does it. If a Republican does it, it's a religious conversion.

Jurassicpork has a birthday post for Captain Codpiece.

I adore ModFab like a brother, but I'm a lot more cynical than he is. He still has hope that a bunch of rich rock stars telling us to use compact fluorescent lightbulbs and "learn how to be happy with less" (how big is Sting's house, anyway?) is going to make one iota of difference in policies to address global warming. Here's what I want to know: How many people are going to drive SUVs to Giants Stadium today, or be delivered in Hummer stretch limos, to attend this concert? Not that I object to environmental consciousness; on the contrary. But since Americans have shown absolutely no desire to change their behavior one bit, does anyone believe that yet another live version of "Waiting on the World to Change" is really going to make even one person buy a Prius, or a 2000 square foot house instead of a 4500 square foot McMansion?
