WOW

Who does Joe Lieberman want on the Supreme Courts? Kweisi Mfume
The biggest problem with this idea is probably the fact that Queasy’s never been to law school.

THE 10 LIES WE WERE TOLD ABOUT IRAQ

Check it out.

HUH?

“Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry says President Bush hasn’t matched tough rhetoric with strong actions…”
Huh? He went in and freakin’ wiped out the government of Iraq. Is Kerry suggesting he wanted something even stronger… a nuke maybe?
Of course not, he’s just taking pot shots at Bush.

IRAQ REGIME’S POST-DOWNFALL PLANS

From a top secret document from the Iraqi intelligence services via Al-Hayat:

“Following on our secret letter No. (3870) of 1/19/2003. In the event of the downfall of the Iraqi leadership in the hands of the American, British, and Zionist forces, God forbid, it is incumbent on all the members of the agencies listed above to act in accordance with the instructions listed below:”

FIRST THE NAPSTER THING, NOW THIS

Metallica is suing the Canadian band Unfaith over playing the guitar chords E and F. On the plus side if any other bands get sue-happy I’m sure Metallica will take them to court too since people have grown to associate stupid lawsuits with Metallica.

WALL STREET JOURNAL GETS A SCOOP

The Wall Street Journal has been “reliably told” details of last October’s National Intelligence Estimate regarding the Iraq-Africa Uranium dealie.
Some snippets:

The section on Iraq’s hunt for uranium, for example, asserts bluntly that “Iraq also began vigorously trying to procure uranium ore and yellowcake” and that “acquiring either would shorten the time Baghdad needs to produce nuclear weapons.”

“a foreign government service reported that as of early 2001 Niger planned to send several tons of ‘pure uranium’ (probably yellowcake) to Iraq. As of early 2001, Niger and Iraq reportedly were still working out arrangements for this deal, which could be for up to 500 tons of yellowcake. We do not know the status of this arrangement.”

“reports indicate Iraq also has sought uranium ore from Somalia and possibly the Democratic Republic of the Congo.” It then adds that “we cannot confirm whether Iraq has succeeded in acquiring uranium ore and/or yellowcake from these sources.”
OpinionJournal

This would seem to go against the Democratic “They’ve known for a year and a half and have been lying to us the whole time and everybody in the administration should resign or be impeached” line, and the Congo and Niger parts would seem to make the forged Niger documents angle unimportant. Remember in the SOTU Bush said Africa, not Niger.
