Pam's House Blend has the whole nasty thing.
"This administration doesn't know how to effect accountability, in my opinion." Wilkerson said when asked about the possibilities of impeachment. Talking about a historical view of impeachment Wilkerson noted that the founding fathers would probably be surprised that more Presidents hadn’t been removed from office.
Once again Gonzo is playing games with Congress. His answers are vague, with lots of "I don't recalls" peppering his responses. It is no surprise, since his tactic, like that of most Bushies is to never admit anything and keep talking until people get tired of you. And most importantly, never do the right thing and resign!

Guess what? They aren't going to wait for us to leave, they are already here. Six Islamic terrorists were arrested yesterday while plotting a shootout at Fort Dix Army Base. They are here because we are there, not because we are going to leave.
Were they caught with the new provisions in the Patriot Act? Nope, just an alert shopkeeper who saw a really disturbing DVD he was asked to copy for one of the plotters. Later an informant recorded a conversation with more evidence. No wiretaps, Internet snoop or other crap that the Homeland Security folks say is critical involved.
I am grateful that the Justice Department had enough non-political operatives left to catch these guys! Now, lets clean up Washington, DC by throwing the criminals in the White House
out and make America safer for everyone. Impeachment NOW!

This seems to be a trend with Bushies, they just won't quit. Over and over they are found to be guilty of doing things that most in government would find so embarrassing they would resign, yet the Bushies just keep on faking it until they are dragged kicking and screaming from their posts.
Wonder if Paul will leave or will they have to take away his keys?
Here's the kicker. Because of Wolfowitz shenanigans and his stubbornness about fessing up to his crimes, the European members of the board are considering taking away the tradition of letting the US pick the next president. Another bold blunder by the Bush administration. Not only will we loose credibility with the World Bank, we will loose the tradition of picking the president. Heck of a job, Wolfie!
Storm chasing is not anything like the movie version. There are few wild close calls and never any flying cows, but there are some very amazing sights of one of natures most frightening and beautiful phenomena, the tornado.
My partner was away on a chase last week when the town of Greensburg, KS was struck by a devastating EF5 (Enhanced Fujita Scale) Tornado. The storm swept the town away. The governor of Kansas called it one of the greatest disasters the state has ever faced.
Today FEMA is starting their work to send trailers to those who are now homeless, though the thought of living in a trailer in Kansas (part of tornado alley) seems less appealing. Normally the National Guard would be bringing in equipment and supplies to help mitigate the horrible aftermath of the storm, but they cannot. That equipment is in Iraq, fighting a war that has sapped our national will and our treasury.
Once again, America is less safe because of Bush and his insane war. This must stop now!

This creature was discovered and photographed with a robot camera in the depths of the ocean for a new book, "The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss." Apparently some of the animals in the book have so little known about them that the picture is about all there is.
