Weekend Odds and Ends

Have you been to the Kwik-E-Mart yet? If not, you're missing out. Here's the news...

Great news for fans of unchecked executive power from Cincinnati: "A divided federal appeals court rejected a lawsuit Friday challenging President Bush's domestic spying program... [stating that] the plaintiffs had no standing to sue because they couldn't prove their communications had been monitored by the government."

Of course, that's the whole point, isn't it? This is warrantless, oversight-less spying. They cannot prove they have been wiretapped any more than the government can prove that they have not. Such extreme power has no real security purpose other than Nixonian power-grabs, which is the underlying scandal here.

Meanwhile, the costs for Bush's war(s) could top $1.4 trillion when all is said and done.

Sen. Lieberman is never pleased, of course. He wants more wars and he wants them now!!

Elsewhere, Rupert Murdoch's bid to consume and destroy buy the Wall Street Journal appears close to success. If this goes through, expect front-page WSJ stories in a few years on celebrity scandals and editorials on the brilliance of George W. Bush. Oh wait, that last part's already true.

Speaking of George W. Bush, America's got impeachment fever! The moonbat nation grows.
