• Perhaps she needs a break, like Lara Logan will be enjoying…for good, hopefully. Glad CBS did the right thing, though she should have been asked to resign, ala Dan Rather, a much more esteemed and accomplished news personality than Logan.

    Mendacious Mitt~~
    His word ain’t worth spit!!

    May his dishonesty be his undoing…still think he won’t make it to Tampa!!

  • I saw some of Allard’s testimony, and by the tone and inflections of his speech, and his mild slurring of words, I would bet money they guy has a serious drinking problem.

  • In a some manner, I think the bumper sticker “My Karma Ate My Dogma!” must apply here…

  • Maybe he screwed up too often on the 30 minute delivery pledge?! ;-)

    Seriously now…he worked for Domino’s, too?! Man, that guy just must love crappy pizza!!

  • Good post, CarolynC! Those were/are some nasty gatekeepers over at dKos!! I gave up on the site after inciting much panty-twisting among many of Kos’ deputies by even opaque allusions to a cover-up of the events of 9-11…and that was over 4 or 5 years ago.

    I still think Cheney will do time…this time!! Wouldn’t it be great if after reelection, Obama set out to see that justice is done, and investigate the ties between 9-11, the Bush Culture of Fear and the Warrantless Wiretapping, Torture, the Patriot Act, and maybe even two stolen elections?!?!

    Ahhhhh, pinch me, for I am dreaming…

  • If we have recently refinanced what was a Countrywide mortgage, which was sold to Fannie Mae, should I be concerned, or will the mortgage be unaffected if there is a change of ownership of B of A?

    Great comment, Oracle! I wonder if this Moody’s development will fortify Andrew Cuomo’s efforts??

    What happened to the spotlight feature?

    Is anyone talking about suing S & P, in order to do some discovery on their communications with partisan players, and their balance sheet?? They could be mired and essentially neutered by litigation, if not proven to be totally in the pocket of the Cock Bros.

  • NPR had on some clown this morning, spouting off about how no one really understands the physical ill-effects of radiation, and touting how it really isn’t as bad as all that…blah, blah, blah… I immediately shared with my partner that I had read something about an NPR broadcaster having recently said that when off the job, she listens to Glenn Beck and Rush.

    When will NPR ever recover from the GOPullution of the airwaves caused by Tomlinson, during the Bush hayday?!

  • Oh boy…another Douchehat piece to pollute the Oregonian…can’t wait! How do people attempt to change the editorial content of their local rag-, er papers?! We routinely have to see the pasty mugs of Krauthammer, Douchebag, Lowry, Max Boot…guess Karl Rove wasn’t available!?!

  • Something very strange here, because I cannot imagine that Assange would be allowed a “furlough” from his current “imprisonment” in a British mansion, to do a speaking engagement in Denver. But I guess this could refer to a video-appearance.

    Either way, Bush is an idiot who probably didn’t want to get all confused listening to Assange be interviewed…

    Very witty! Repukes are the regressive party. I didn’t ask the question to stir up all that angst about Obama not listening to sages like yourself.

    Weak effort at humor, if that was what you were going for. It appears that I asked the wrong crowd.

    With all these idiots taking committee chairman posts and the like, I am curious what the Democratic strategy is to effectively neuter the regressive party until such time that less ideologically-impaired politicians take their place.

    Any insights from FDLer’s?

    Glad Marcy is on this! I thought it stank to high hell, and can’t wait for the truth to surface. Agree about the boilerplate nature of these BS terrorism set-ups. I think the Portland case is falling apart with the public defender’s office efforts to implicate the DOJ for improper statements he has made to the press.

    http://www.oregonlive.com had an article on this 12/21, the gist of which is below…

    Mohamed Mohamud defense lawyers to Attorney General Eric Holder: Shut up
    Published: Tuesday, December 21, 2010

    Mohamed Mohamud’s defense team has asked a federal judge to put a muzzle on U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

    The nation’s top prosecutor has commented publicly at least twice in recent weeks about the criminal case against Mohamud. The 19-year-old Somali-American is accused of plotting to bomb thousands of Christmas revelers at Portland’s Nov. 26 tree-lighting ceremony, a plot thwarted by an undercover FBI sting.

    Defense lawyers Stephen R. Sady and Steven T. Wax filed a motion on Monday asking U.S. District Judge Garr M. King to prohibit government prosecutors from making further comments about the case. They allege that Holder’s public statements violated federal regulations and their client’s constitutional right to due process.

    Prosecutors have not yet filed a response to the motion.

    Mohamud’s defense team wrote in their motion that the Mohamud case already involves high risks regarding pretrial prejudice. They alleged that Holder’s remarks went far beyond general comments about the charges against their client or a discussion of policy issues.

    “By opining on the merits of the case,” they wrote, “the government pollutes the jury pool with inappropriate opinions and prejudgments.”

    The defense team noted that on Nov. 29, Holder told news media that the FBI had acted properly in making their case against Mohamud and rejected the notion that the bureau’s employees had made Mohamud the victim of illegal entrapment. On Dec. 10, the attorney general elaborated on those comments at a civil liberties gathering in San Francisco.

    “Those who characterize the FBI’s activities in this case as ‘entrapment’ simply do not have their facts straight — or do not have a full understanding of the law,” Holder said to the group Muslim Advocates at its annual dinner.
