Yoo Who?

John Yoo? He was the guy who wrote the opinions justifying the "wartime" powers claimed by President Bush at Guantanamo, in the Unwarranted N.S.A. Domestic Eavesdropping, and in the recent bank record spying, etc. Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision threw out his logic decisively. Guess where he is now – the American Enterprise Institute. Today he […]

Bush’s Approval Ratings are instructive as the midterm elections approach this coming November. The most obvious thing is the baseline decline in his popularity that is in the background. Equally striking are the spikes in response to events. The first huge spike is the response to the September 2001 Trade Tower bombing. The next one […]

another inconvenient truth…

maybe a duel at dawn…

Speaking of Patriots, here’s someone who isn’t, at least not today. It’s Trent Lott talking about the Supreme Court Decision on the Detainees at Guantanamo. Notice that he hasn’t read it. But much more to the point, he says it’s a bad decision because these are not pussy cats being detained there. He doesn’t address […]

as long as we’re at it, a real Congressman

Dear John letters…

Dear John, Last night, President Bush appeared at a big-ticket fundraiser for embattled GOP Senator Jim Talent in Missouri. Tomorrow, it’s off to Ohio to raise funds for Mike DeWine, another GOP Senator that we have a solid chance to defeat come November. The Republicans think they can sneak President Bush and Vice President Cheney […]
