Happy Anniversary to Powerline

The Power Tools are having so much fun celebrating this, the first anniversary of their role in exposing the high crimes and misdemeanors behind some flawed paperwork in an essentially true story, that we can’t help but join in.

Congratulations, guys. You continue to do yeoman’s work:

There’s no evidence that, with 750,000 guardsmen in the U.S., and two-thirds of the Louisiana Guard available, the deployment in Iraq is causing suffering in New Orleans or elsewhere along the Gulf Coast.

Today’s AP:

The deployment of thousands of National Guard troops from Mississippi and Louisiana in Iraq when Hurricane Katrina struck hindered those states’ initial storm response, military and civilian officials said Friday.

That “Time Magazine Blog of the Year” thing is getting old. I’m thinking more like “Home of the Thoroughly Artless Rimjob.”
