Weekend Odds and Ends

Only one more week until the last Harry Potter book. News to distract us 'til then...

George W. Bush's 'war' on 'terror' has been a smashing success: "U.S. intelligence analysts have concluded al-Qaida has rebuilt its operating capability [and] has been able to regroup along the Afghan-Pakistani border despite nearly six years of bombings, war and other tactics aimed at crippling it."

This is surely bad good news for the White House's supporters ?.

President Bush finally acknowledges the Plame leak; tells us it was no big deal.

Congress thinks that all this executive privilege crap is just bullshit.

Speaking of Congress, ol' Bushie's got another veto ready for them: "The White House ... threatened to veto a bill backed by U.S. House of Representatives Democrats that would slash subsidies paid to college student-loan companies."

And President Bush's nominee for Surgeon General (who founded a church which, among other things, helps cure gay people of their 'lifestyle' problem) swears he's not anti-gay. Well, I'm sold, how 'bout you?

For the first time ever, a Hindu delivered the morning invocation in the Senate chamber... except it was interrupted by religious right protestors who shouted at the cleric, calling his prayer an "abomination".

Finally, President Bush goes for broke and makes a little girl cry.
