Why didn't I realize this before? All the Bush administration really has been doing is catering to his buddies in Texas. I knew that from the first line dance at the inauguration ball. Did they have a mechanical bull in there? I can't remember. So now that we've taken back the oil "stole" from Texas oil companies isn't it time to remember the Alamo? This article in the Washington Post is just the beginning.
OK, this ranks up there with addiction to video games, addiction to football, and addiction to having sex. Another great New York Times article points the way to the latest fad illness. Quick go read this and get your fix!
By appointing Susan P. Kennedy. In an article in the New York Times Arnold Schwarzenegger is, for a change, essentially called stupid by Dave Gilliard, one of the conservative leaders of the recall movement.

The record of Scalito, as he is called, raises some serious questions about whether we want this guy deciding the law of the land.
As you may have heard, Miers has withdrawn her nomination. I thought I had better write something today since by tomorrow half the rest of Bush's aides may be indicted and Miers will be old news very quickly.

It's always interesting to see a survey like this. Someone, somewhere has come up with a test, which once scored, assigns to you a science fiction or fantasy character that matches your personality.
