Guess Who Could Be Taking Your Calls?


Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be the guest on C-Span’s Washington Journal this morning between 9:00 am ET and 9:30 am ET.  I am told he’ll be there to discuss the FISA issue — wonder if he’ll be trying to give Specter some cover for the Judiciary Committee hearing?  He could be taking your call and your questions…are you dialing yet?

Call-In Numbers

Support Democrats: (202) 737-0002

Support Republicans: (202) 737-0001

Support Independents: (202) 628-0205

Outside U.S.: (202) 628-0184


I just know someone out there has a good question for Bush’s Chief CYA Lawyer the nation’s Attorney General.  And since he supposedly works for all of us, I’m sure he’d be more than happy to answer any and all of your questions.

Plus, C-Span is smoking hot this morning!  Beyond the Gonzales question period, they will have full coverage of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on FISA and the Specter Bill (among others) — which will now begin at 9:00 am ET — on C-Span3.  (Yes, I am nerdy and find this exciting.  But you knew that…)

And FYI, it looks as though C-Span3 will also be hosting live coverage of the Senate Foreign Relations nomination hearings for Mr. Abrasive John Bolton to be UN Ambassador via an actual confirmation process vote this time instead of a sneak appointment.  The Bush Administration is trying to sneak this in under cover of the conflict between Israel and Lebanon, and the ever-chaotic situation in Iraq.  That will be held beginning this Thursday morning, starting at 9:30 am ET (as of today).
