Cheney for President? D.C. lawyer and former political director for the Log Cabin republicans, said, "I think there is only one man who is capable of bringing the entire Republican coalition together and speaking with clarity about the values that have made our party great. And that is Vice President Cheney."

Little Joe Why this man is tolerated by the Democratic caucus in the Senate is an enduring mystery, frankly, and not just because Lieberman is a publicity-hogging fraud, although that is most definitely the case.

Eight Years Ago By the first week of October, with a pall of poison smoke still hanging over New York City, Bush declared that, "We have to counteract the shockwave of the evildoer by having individual rate cuts accelerated and by thinking about tax rebates," and the world threw up into its collective mouth. He took us to war; he took us to Hell, and we are still far, far from anything resembling recovery.

Howl This is what has become of the Republican Party in the 21st century. the GOP is once again rushing into the demented embrace of their base instead of trying to broaden their appeal. What we have is a GOP so demonstrably starved of ideas that all they have left is howling disruption and mindless noise.

Worst Case Scenario If the Taliban decide Bergdahl has information they want, they can waterboard him until he talks. They can compress his body and cover him with insects, they can rob him of sleep and deny him food, they can beat him and slather his body with his own waste, they can shove sticks into his rectum, they can rape him, and they can murder him.

Now Can We Investigate? The revelation over the weekend that former Vice Pres. Dick Cheney ordered the CIA to lie to COngress has the Obama Administration playing defense. This article, which first appeared on, discusses Obama's reticence, and the fact that events have moved away from his control. Sweeping crimes under the rug only means more crimes will be committed in the future.

Pass the Ball for Victory? This is the GOP of the 21st century. You'd think it couldn't get any worse, but if Palin, Sanford, Haggard, McCain, DeLay, Foley, Cunningham, Ney, Abramoff, Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Bush and Cheney have taught us anything, it is that we can never assume the bottom of the GOP barrel has been reached.

Gimme That Old-Time Religion A whole lot of Faustian chickens are coming home to roost in the GOP's crumbling coop. The party courted those base voters -- evangelical Christians, hardcore gun-rights fanatics, anti-tax, anti-immigrant and anti-choice voters -- championed them, pandered to them and ultimately empowered them. Now, that power is subsuming the party, and for the time being, there is no end in sight.

Sotomayor Derangement Syndrome Ranting incoherence, brazen racism and suicidal ideation swept through the ranks of the far right after Judge Sotomayor was nominated to replace Justice Souter on the high court, symptoms that became worse by orders of magnitude as the week wore on.

The Other 100 Days For the Republican Party, the last 100 days have been something out of a Roger Corman flick: blood on the walls, body parts everywhere, lots of screaming and no plot to speak of.

It Just Doesn't Matter The fallout after Specter woke up on the left side of the bed on Tuesday has been entirely entertaining, largely hilarious and just significant enough to warrant a little serious attention ... but that's just politics, which is also the entire reason Specter jumped.

Remember: They Are Liars "George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Condoleezza Rice, along with a slew of administration underlings and a revolving-door cavalcade of brass hats from the Pentagon, have been making claims regarding Iraq for many years now." Remember this as Petraeus reports to congress.

The Carlyle White House It was bad enough when the Carlyle Group bought Dunkin' Donuts last year, forcing millions of conscientious caffeine addicts to look elsewhere for their daily fix. Now, it appears Carlyle has added 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to its formidable portfolio of acquisitions.

In Case I Disappear A running joke between my mother and me is that she has a "safe room" set up for me in her cabin in the woods, in the event I have to flee because of something I wrote or said. I always laughed and shook my head whenever I heard this stuff. Extreme paranoia wrapped in the tinfoil of conspiracy, I thought. This is still America., and these Bush fools will soon pass into history, I thought. Things are different now.

Cheerleading the Apocalypse "The fighting between Israel and Lebanon over the course of the last few days presents perhaps the most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis. The leadership of Israel and Hezbollah spend the blood of innocents to prove how very tough they are, and the lords of unreason hold sway over all. Syria trembles on the edge of significant involvement, with Iran waiting in the wings,"
