Post-Vacation Odds and Ends

It appears I missed a lot while at Comic Con. Here's the big stuff in summary...

Was Pat Tillman murdered??! Some new evidence paints a horrifying picture.

In other news, Mideast peace is right around the corner again! From Reuters: "[Condoleeza] Rice said Washington planned to offer Egypt a $13 billion package and Israel a $30 billion deal -- increases on previous military funding -- over 10 years, as well as unspecified defense aid to Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states." Because what's hampered the peace process was a lack of military funding.

Back in domestic political news, Congress is finally beginning to take the Gonzales problem seriously. MSNBC reports that "A group of House Democrats will introduce a resolution calling on the Judiciary Committee to begin impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales."

Sounds good to me... Assuming it goes anywhere, of course.

Speaking of GOP corruption, I read this news on the series of tubes known as the internet before: "Federal agents searched the home of U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens on Monday, focusing on records related to his relationship with an oil field services contractor jailed in a public corruption investigation, a law enforcement official said."

Talking Points Memo, meanwhile, has put together a video explaining what the scandal is.

The Democratic YouTube debate generated tons of buzz, but the GOP candidates seem frightened by the internets and are backing away from the GOP debate. CNN announced plans to reschedule it. Sorry, guys, if you can't handle YouTube questions from a talking snowman, I don't trust you with the nuclear codes.

Finally, is Rupert Murdoch's takeover of the Wall Street Journal in jeopardy?
