A good, if scary (and for many of us not terribly surprising) story about the situation in postwar Iraq.
A nicely laid-out timline of W's "service" record.
...and even more from www.thismodernworld.com, this time lifted wholesale:
Right before Bush's speech on the Abraham Lincoln, there were a lot of stories about how he had to take a jet because the carrier was too far out at sea for a helicopter landing, honest, it has nothing to do with the dramatic visuals.
Well, guess what:
ABOARD THE USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN — President Bush didn't have to make a dramatic tailhook landing on this aircraft carrier. He could have flown here on a helicopter as presidents normally would, the White House said Friday.
Officials also acknowledged positioning the massive ship to provide the best TV angle for Bush's speech, with the vast sea as his background instead of the very visible San Diego coastline.
And yet Fleischer is quoted as saying (with a straight face, one would assume): "This is not about the president. This is about thanking the men and women who won a war." HAH, i say.
