Bill Maher Accuses Bush of Treason

On Friday’s “Real Time,” Bill Maher eviscerated the Bush administration for outing Valerie Plame. There are no revelations here, but Maher’s hard-hitting analysis of the scandal will satisfy even the most Plame-exhausted viewer. Warning: HBO language.

Truthdig Slide Show: Four Years of War

Last week the Iraq war entered its fifth year. We mark the occasion by revisiting striking moments from March 19, 2003, onward. It would be impossible for one slide show to capture every iconic frame or ghastly scene. Still, these images remind us that little has changed in the years since George Bush stood before a banner reading “Mission Accomplished.”

Leahy

Senate Scoffs at Bush Offer

The Senate told Bush to shove his “take it or leave it” offer and ordered subpoenas for key figures in the U.S. attorney scandal. Sen. Pat Leahy had this to say about the president’s above-the-law attitude: “A system of justice does not serve at the pleasure of any person in this country.”

Bush and Olmert

But Is It Good for the Jews?

J.J. Goldberg, editor in chief of the venerable progressive Jewish daily the Forward, joins the podcast this week to talk about the complexity of Zionism, the misguided intentions of neoconservatism and why AIPAC isn’t quite as sinister as you might think.  Above, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert with President Bush.

CNN: Gonzales the ‘Weasel’

Wow. CNN’s Jack Cafferty really doesn’t like Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. After calling him the definition of a “weasel,” Cafferty asked America whether the AG should resign. Surprisingly (or not), CNN didn’t get one e-mail saying Gonzales should stay.

Brzezinski Flunks Bush

Be glad Zbigniew Brzezinski, historian and national security adviser under Jimmy Carter, isn’t sizing up your job performance—the man just does not give out A’s.  Brzezinski dropped in at “Late Edition” on Sunday and graded Bill Clinton and both Bushes on their international relations skills, slapping George W. Bush with an F.
