MR. BUCHANAN: The stock market is still swooning. Bernanke, at the next meeting of the Fed, will cut the basis rate -- the interest rate by 50 basis points, John.I don't know a lot about the way the Fed works. This indicates that the "next meeting" was on March 18th, and "The Federal Open Market Committee decided today to lower its target for the federal funds rate 75 basis points to 2-1/4 percent." +1
MS. CLIFT: President Bush's positive legacy will be the work he's done with AIDS and malaria in Africa, which is why he's going to Africa over the coming weekend.This is true, but any praise should be tempered by Bush withdrawal of funding for any agencies that performed or promoted abortion, undoing a lot of good work that Planned Parenthood had done on the continent. +1
MS. CROWLEY: I now think that the trial of Tony Rezko, which is due to begin on March 3rd, will have a bigger impact on this campaign than any of us foresaw.Wishful thinking, Monica. Only mattered to Hannity-ites. +0
MR. PAGE: My prediction is the American College of Physicians has just come out in favor of moving marijuana from Schedule 1 to Schedule 2, meaning it does have redeeming qualities. And this puts new pressure on the AMA now to agree.Clarence, there is no prediction here. But marijuana is still Schedule I. +0
MR. MCLAUGHLIN: I predict that when Fidel Castro dies, Cuban political insiders will not take over the Cuban government. The Cuban military will, and it will introduce democratic freedoms.You're silly, John. Fidel Castro is never going to die. +0
A homeless man beheaded a good Samaritan who had given him a place to stay, south Florida authorities say. Lee County Sheriff's deputies went to 70-year-old Charles Rogers' apartment Thursday and found his body in his wheelchair. His head had been placed near the front door[yikes]
Feeling nauseous. Please do not be true. If even partly true, I completely understand Obama refusing to release the photos, and I hope they stay unreleased.
Photographs of alleged prisoner abuse which Barack Obama is attempting to censor include images of apparent rape and sexual abuse, it has emerged.At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.Further photographs are said to depict sexual assaults on prisoners with objects including a truncheon, wire and a phosphorescent tube.Another apparently shows a female prisoner having her clothing forcibly removed to expose her breasts.
Detail of the content emerged from Major General Antonio Taguba, the former army officer who conducted an inquiry into the Abu Ghraib jail in Iraq.
In the months ahead, it will be important for those of us in the U.S. Senate to weigh her qualifications and character as well as her ability to rule fairly without undue influence from her own personal race, gender, or political preferences."Funny, I don't recall this being an issue for Roberts or Alito.
General David Petraeus said this past weekend that President Obama's decision to close down Gitmo and end harsh interrogation techniques would benefit the United States in the broader war on terror.
"I think, on balance, that those moves help [us]," said the chief of U.S. Central Command. "In fact, I have long been on record as having testified and also in helping write doctrine for interrogation techniques that are completely in line with the Geneva Convention. And as a division commander in Iraq in the early days, we put out guidance very early on to make sure that our soldiers, in fact, knew that we needed to stay within those guidelines.BUT WHAT ABOUT THE TICKING TIME BOMB, YOU COWARD?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!
"With respect to Guantanamo," Petraeus added, "I think that the closure in a responsible manner, obviously one that is certainly being worked out now by the Department of Justice -- I talked to the Attorney General the other day [and] they have a very intensive effort ongoing to determine, indeed, what to do with the detainees who are left, how to deal with them in a legal way, and if continued incarceration is necessary -- again, how to take that forward. But doing that in a responsible manner, I think, sends an important message to the world, as does the commitment of the United States to observe the Geneva Convention when it comes to the treatment of detainees."
Wonder how that whole GOP Hispanic outreach thingy is going? Maybe they should hold the next event at Taco Bell, cause isn’t that what those people eat?
You cannot win a war on terrorism. It's like having a war on jealousy—Ya ain't gonna win it, man. It's an absurd notion. At no point in time, ever are we gonna go, Whew got 'em all. Everybody loves us again.
MR. GREGORY: How long should Gitmo remain open?So forever it is!REP. GINGRICH: Until the war is over.MR. GREGORY: When is that?REP. GINGRICH: We'll--when the terrorists disappear.

A woman claims she had a lesbian relationship with Miss California's mom that ended right before the anti-gay marriage beauty queen competed in the biggest pageant of her career, according to ABCNews.com.
When I think of a “polarizing” figure, I think of someone about whom the public has strong, but closely divided feelings. Like if you were at 45 percent “strongly favorable” and 45 percent “strongly unfavorable” with only a few people in the middle. Cheney is just unpopular.
To balance the books, Schwarzenegger is eyeing the dismantling of the state's CalWorks program, which serves more than 500,000 poor families with children, as well as the elimination of Healthy Families, which provides medical coverage to 928,000 children and teens. Mothballing the two programs would save the state about $1.4 billion in the coming fiscal year, officials said.
If the proposals to slash the safety net come to pass, they would completely reshape the state's social service network, transforming California from one of the country's most generous states to one of the most tightfisted in aiding the poor.
Also potentially on the chopping block is CalGrants, a financial assistance program that offers cash grants to lower- and middle-income college students each year. The governor's proposal would eliminate the 77,000 new grants awarded each year at a cost of $180 million, but that saving would eventually grow to more than $900 million as students graduated and the program was phased out.
The filing also lists the value of gifts Cheney received during his final year in office. The Lucchese Boot Company of Hendersonville, Tenn. and the Oak Ridge Boys, a country band, jointly provided the former vice president with $631 worth of black cherry goat leather boots and three CDs, appraised at $631.[ackerman]
The police chief said Toribio told detectives that she suffocated her son in Alvarado Park before dawn on May 13 by putting her hand over his mouth and nose. She said she had second thoughts and performed CPR on the boy, resuscitating him, but reconsidered and smothered him again.
Than dancing on your own grave?
fuck the banks i`ve heard them say but then someone has to cash this check
a third goes to the government and then half goes down to rent
and then what`s left seems like a gift it nearly brings tears to these eyes
cause there`s folks in d.c. that sleep in satin sheets and say my value`s recognized
could this be the freedom that mother spoke of at home?
didn`t life guarantee me anything besides overtime for low-interest loans?
i want to tear this fucker down
Finally, here is my vision of success – being part of a strong, healthy family; being involved in my community and being inspired to act based on what is right and proper rather than on what is easiest or cheapest.Somebody actually paid to publish this. What a country!
The briefing’s cover sheet generally featured triumphant, color images from the previous days’ war efforts: On this particular morning, it showed the statue of Saddam Hussein being pulled down in Firdos Square, a grateful Iraqi child kissing an American soldier, and jubilant crowds thronging the streets of newly liberated Baghdad. And above these images, and just below the headline secretary of defense, was a quote that may have raised some eyebrows. It came from the Bible, from the book of Psalms: “Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him…To deliver their soul from death.”
On March 31, a U.S. tank roared through the desert beneath a quote from Ephesians: “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” On April 7, Saddam Hussein struck a dictatorial pose, under this passage from the First Epistle of Peter: “It is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.”Rumsfeld's peeps are denying this, but, really, how could they not?
Shortly before the Iraq invasion, King Abdullah II of Jordan decreed that warplanes could not overfly his country if they had previously flown over Israel. The king’s demand meant that U.S. fighters would need to make a multiple-hour detour before proceeding to their targets. Rumsfeld had himself been a fighter pilot and presumably recognized the absurdity of the detour, and so one NSC aide approached him during a meeting in the Situation Room as the matter was being discussed.And he was sugar in the gastank during Katrina.
Excuse me, Mr. Secretary,” said the aide. “I want you to know that Dr. Rice is prepared to call the king to get that restriction removed so that our kids don’t have to fly the extra two and a half or three hours.”
Rumsfeld looked up from his coffee. “When I need your help,” he said, “I’ll ask.”
The secretary did not ask for the help, and so his soldiers went the extra distance, unnecessarily.
Noticing that their chopper was outfitted with a search-and-rescue lift, one of the advance men said to the pilot, “We’re not taking you away from grabbing people off of rooftops, are we?”It's no secret that I'm not a fan of George W. Bush. But he did himself no favors by surrounding himself with the likes of Cheney & Rumsfeld. Without them, it likely would have been merely a bad presidency; with them, it was among the worst ever.
“No, sir,” said the pilot. He explained that he was from Florida’s Hurlburt Field Air Force base—roughly 200 miles from New Orleans—which contained an entire fleet of search-and-rescue helicopters. “I’m just here because you’re here,” the pilot added. “My whole unit’s sitting back at Hurlburt, wondering why we’re not being used.”
The search-and-rescue helicopters were not being used because Donald Rumsfeld had not yet approved their deployment—even though, as Lieutenant General Russ Honoré, the cigar-chomping commander of Joint Task Force Katrina, would later tell me, “that Wednesday, we needed to evacuate people. The few helicopters we had in there were busy, and we were trying to deploy more.”
The next day, three days after landfall, word of disorder in New Orleans had reached a fever pitch. According to sources familiar with the conversation, DHS secretary Michael Chertoff called Rumsfeld that morning and said, “You’re going to need several thousand troops.”
“Well, I disagree,” said the SecDef. “And I’m going to tell the president we don’t need any more than the National Guard.”
A Bakersfield father is accused of biting out one of the eyes of his small child and similarly mutilating the other eye, leaving the child blind.
After attacking the child, 34-year-old Angel Vidal Mendoza Sr. quickly left his apartment in a wheelchair, entered a backyard of a nearby vacant home and attacked his own legs with an ax, severely injuring himself, Bakersfield police reported.
The child, 4-year-old Angelo Mendoza Jr., later told police, "My daddy ate my eyes."
"This is how I feel -- if you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl. As far as I'm concerned, he [Obama] would've invited Arizona if they had won," said Harrison.I'll raise Harrison's "as far as I'm concerned" - I am 110% positive that Obama would've invited the Cardinals if they had won. I'm also willing to bet Harrison his 2009 salary that whoever wins the 2010 Super Bowl will also be invited to the White House.
Plinky: With all the stress in the world right now, it's important to de-stress-ify every now and again. How do you do it?
I know it makes no sense, but coffee. Specifically, grabbing a book or the latest issue of The New Yorker, heading to a coffee shop with a good vibe, and just hunkering down and mainlining espresso. I haven't found the perfect place in San Diego yet, though Krakatoa and Influx come close . In Sacramento, The Naked Lounge and Tupelo were perfect.
"I do think we all learned an important lesson," Obama said. "I learned to never again pick another team over the Sun Devils in my NCAA bracket. It won't happen again. President Crow and Board of Regents will soon learn all about being audited by the IRS."
Obama's bullying continues....if you don't play his game, he sends his thugs out to get you.
Even in jest, a threat is still a threat, IRS is serious stuff, there's nothing classy about that. To say he will never pick another team is silly and I don't believe him, he's pandering too hard. ASU is right, Obama had a slick election with secret monies, but that's about it for accomplishments.

I confess I don’t know a whole lot about finance, so maybe everyone would be better off if I had no opinion. OTOH, I don’t know a whole lot about how the espresso machine at the coffee place works, either, but that doesn’t necessarily imply that it’s some super-complicated thing that is beyond the comprehension of mere mortals. Also, the espresso machine doesn’t periodically blind all the customers with scalding water, and the guy who runs it doesn’t then explain how that’s how the machine works, and it will soon fix itself as long as we don’t try to contain the spray of scalding water, and can he please have a few hundred billion dollars from the government now or he’ll boil everyone alive, then dressing up like Thomas Jefferson and muttering darkly about ACORN. If you want people to take you seriously, investment firm executives, stop writing open letters that make it sound like Marie Antoinette lobotomized you with an ice cream scoop. Because it gives people ideas. Do yourselves a very, very large favor and shut the fuck up.
