Odds and Ends

Is there a primary tomorrow? I haven't heard anything. Here's the news...

The AG swats away the pesky flies buzzing around his master: "Attorney General Michael Mukasey refused Friday to refer the House's contempt citations against two of President Bush's top aides to a federal grand jury. Mukasey said White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former presidential counsel Harriet Miers committed no crime."

John McCain <3's bigots. Will he reject or denounce them?

Hillary Clinton says she's continuing forward. Obama makes his final pitch to Texas.

More bad news for people who rely on that oil stuff (you know, like everyone): "The weaker dollar that has propelled oil and other commodities prices higher sent light, sweet crude for April delivery past $103.76 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange." But seriously, there's no reason to actually do anything about this.

You know you have a climate problem when you see headlines like this: 'Feds say water negotiations have failed'

Why won't those liberal constitution-mongers give up on FISA already?

Finally, craptacular news from around the world... Some shit is about to go down between Venezuela/Ecuador and Colombia. And we move another step closer to Mideast peace as Israel continues its assault on Hamas-run Gaza. The U.S. puts warships off the coast of Lebanon. You know we're nearing the end of another Bush presidency when we start bombing Somalia. Finally, Dmitry Medvedev scored a shocking (!!) victory in the Russian presidential elections, and will commence pretending that he runs the country instead of Prime Minister Putin.
