I read the news today, oh boy. 

Hmmm -- hoist by his own petard so to speak. But maybe the Conservatives could generate more revenue by selling the extra seats to lobbyists and the party faithful... "Come fly with me" could be Harper's slogan.

I'm glad those two "terror" provisions are gone -- the whole idea of a "sunset" clause in the first place was that such vague and heavy-handed laws should expire unless they are crucial for dealing with imminent terrorist threats -- a case that couldn't be made because neither provision has actually been used.

Digby says that if thrice-married Rudy Giuliani is really as popular among Christian evangelicals as the polls now show -- and he appears to be at least as popular now as Bill Clinton still is with the rest of the country -- then it means that American voters are not particularly obsessed with the sex lives of politicians. It really is only the media who think about sex all the time.

So the US Ambassador-designate to Belgium is either a liar or an ignoramus. Belgium will be so flattered.

And Stephen Colbert investigates Al Gore's garbage and finds that he is actually throwing out the end crusts from his breadloaves, when he could be saving them to make breadcrumbs. What a wastrel!
