Get the header on this post: Lawyer Ends Up Dead After Taking On Rove
Of course, you read the article and it turns out that the lawyer was pushing nonsense related to the whole Plame affair:Sanford: Yes, thank you. There has been a lot of speculation concerning the meaning of the underlying statute and the grand jury investigation concerning Mr. Rove. The question is, have the legal counsel to the White House or White House staff reviewed the statute in sufficient specificity to determine whether a violation of that statute would, in effect, constitute treason?
And if you've been following Plamegate, you know it's been over forever; in fact the lawyer asked the question in July of 2005. Dang, that Rove sure waits awhile before getting his revenge!

Cindy Busted Again
She's starting to get a longish rap sheet
.Peace activist Cindy Sheehan and four other protesters were arrested Thursday for blocking a road near President Bush's ranch, delaying the arrival of Vice President Dick Cheney's motorcade, authorities said.
Sheehan and the others lay or sat in the road for about 20 minutes and didn't heed requests to move, Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. R.T. King said.
The good news is that her antics may start to catch up to her:Earlier this month in New York, Sheehan was convicted of trespassing for leading a protest across the street from the United Nations.
A judge sentenced them to conditional discharge, which means they will not face any punishment as long as they don't get arrested in the next six months.

Bush the Hero
Here's a fine article from hizzoner, Ed Koch
.George Bush is a hero to me because he has courage. The President does what he believes to be in the best interest of the United States. He sticks with his beliefs, no matter how intense the criticism and invective that are directed against him every day.
The enormous defeat President Bush suffered with the loss of both Houses of Congress has not caused him to retreat from his position that the U.S. alone now stands between a radical Islamic takeover of many of the world’s governments in the next 30 or more years. If that takeover occurs, we will suffer an enslavement that will threaten our personal freedoms and take much of the world back into the Dark Ages.
Exactly. So many focus on the supposed freedoms we've lost under the Patriot Act, without considering the freedoms we'd lose under Sharia Law.

I Eat Alone....
Is not the title of a George Thoroughgood song, but it's apt for this hilarious picture

Romney Versus McCain
Here's a good article
on Mitt's attempts to spar with John, who mostly seems to be ignoring him. As usual, it notes Romney's attempts to remake himself into a conservative of the Ronald Reagan mold:Last month, Romney accused McCain of being "disingenuous" for opposing gay marriage but not supporting a federal constitutional amendment to ban it.
"Look, if somebody says they're in favor of gay marriage, I respect that view," Romney said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. "If someone says like I do that I oppose same-sex marriage, I respect that view. But those who try and pretend to have it both ways, I find it to be disingenuous."
However, Romney, when he ran against Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 1994, held the same position McCain does now: that it should be up to states, not the federal government, to decide whether to outlaw same-sex marriage.

This is my favorite video of the year:
Of course, a bicycle nut like me would go for this, but it's truly an extraordinary performance. There are parts of the video where you can't help wondering how someone even thinks up stunts like this.
