Hitting The Links…
— Al Gore has an op-ed in today’s NYTimes. Read it.
— And then read emptywheel’s take on the imperial presidency.
— Glenn explores the authoritarian mind (or lack thereof, as the case may be). Don’t miss the comparison of cartoon dialogue to real life. Priceless. And, just in case you missed this, do read the interview that Glenn did with Helen Thomas — love her.
— Digby tackles some links of her own (Ooooh! I get to write a gender! Still fun…) Both are very interesting, but the juxtaposition is telling.
— Jesus General dumpster dives through the wingnutosphere so you don’t have to…thanks, Mon General.
— In case you were wondering, things are going so swimmingly in Afghanistan, that the Taliban and other militant groups are now spilling over into the non-tribal regions of Pakistan and threatening to take over the country. Yeah, that’s the way to make America safer — hand them a country with nukes. Heckuva job, Bushie.
— It’s official. Again. People think President Bush is doing a crappy job.
