Week in Review

Bush lied. The congressional bill will not deprive troops of needed funds as Bush asserted last week. The army has enough money to fund the war through July.

Pretty darn ironic. John Gibson, Bill O'Lielly and Michelle Malkin have launched a campaign to get Rosie O'Donnell fired from the view. May I add that I have seen attacks on Rosie over at MSNBC as well.

Whenever people tried to tell me what a liberal Bill Clinton was, I remind them of Nafta to shut them up. Hillary appears to have split with Bill's Nafta legacy.

Wasn't it just gruesome how the president used troops at Walter Reed as his backdrop when he pretended to apologize for the conditions there?
Anatomy of a photo-op.
Bush at Walter Reed: “Journalists were allowed to take pictures and watch for only a few minutes before being ushered out, though not before Bush told photographers to take pictures of Sgt. Mark Ecker’s tattoo of a naked woman. Reporters were not allowed to interview patients in Abrams Hall, hospital officials said, citing logistics. The hospital instead made available two doctors, who spoke glowingly about the president’s visit and had no information to provide about the facility’s problems.” Bush wrapped up his visit an hour before the scheduled time.
UPDATE2:
“The president was not taken into the shut-down Building 18 yesterday but was shown a well-kept, empty dormitory room equipped with flat-screen television and desktop computer in Abrams Hall, where some Building 18 patients have been moved.”
Gonzo lies: "I believe in truth and accountability and every step that I've taken is consistent with that principle," Gonzales said when asked why he is not heeding calls to resign. "I am fighting for the truth as well."

OMG. Prayer flunks test: "In the largest study of its kind, researchers found that having people pray for heart bypass surgery patients had no effect on their recovery. In fact, patients who knew they were being prayed for had a slightly higher rate of complications."

Give me some good news.
