Your Saturday Blogoverse


["This image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and provided Thursday Oct. 26, 2006 shows the scattered remains of an exploded star named Cassiopeia A. Spitzer's infrared detectors 'picked' through these remains and found that much of the star's original layering had been preserved. In this false-color image, the faint, blue glow surrounding the dead star is material that was energized by a shock wave, called the forward shock, which was created when the star blew up. The forward shock is now located at the outer edge of the blue glow. Stars are also seen in blue. Green, yellow and red primarily represent material that was ejected in the explosion and heated by a slower shock wave, called the reverse shock wave." (AP Photo/NASA)]

— Got war profiteering?  Seems to me that the American taxpayer deserves more oversight on why Iraq is for sale.

Bob Geiger has the Saturday cartoons up — some great ones this week.

— Corporate America is banking on a Democratic win — and ponying up some last-minute donations to campaigns.

— Yet another reason that I love Digby.

ConnecticutBob has some new campaign trial shots and video from CT.

Billmon and Shakespeare's Sister have some further thoughts on the GOP carnival of ugly.

Taylor has a great piece on the groping GOP candidate for governor in Nevada.  Creep.  (And don't miss Taylor's literary review of Lynn Cheney's masterpiece book.  And her updated info on George Allen.)

— Speaking of Allen, Gilliard has some background on how Webb won his Navy Cross.

— Safavian got 18 months in prison.  So much for that "Bush Administration had no connection to Abramoff" malarky.

TBogg is just funny.  And I mean that.
