Mukasey Dodges Senators’ Grilling on Waterboarding

During a visit to Capitol Hill on Wednesday, Attorney General Michael Mukasey irked certain senators by wiggling out of directly stating whether or not he believes that waterboarding is a form of torture, an expected but apparently exasperating dodge in the estimation of Sens. Edward Kennedy and Patrick Leahy, among others.

Pledging to soldier on in his quest to fight poverty, Democratic candidate John Edwards dropped out of the presidential race Wednesday. Edwards has not yet endorsed either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton. His two former rivals both praised him Wednesday as he made his exit.

Australian Gov’t to Apologize to Aborigines

Even though imperialism clearly isn’t a thing of the past as a global phenomenon, the Australian government is preparing to verbally own up to a painful chapter from its own national history by formally apologizing to Aborigines for past attempts at “civilizing” their people via forced assimilation initiatives that spanned more than five decades.

Giuliani to Endorse McCain

Rudy Giuliani is expected to endorse John McCain at the Reagan library in California on Wednesday. The man who suffered one of the most dramatic campaign implosions in recent memory explained his collapse to supporters this way: “You don’t always win, but you can always try to do it right, and you did.” Although doing it a bit earlier, too, wouldn’t have hurt.

Protesters Punished, Blackwater Shooters Remain Free

Last week at the gates of the mercenary company Blackwater, nonviolent protesters who re-enacted an infamous Blackwater shooting were arrested. As “Blackwater” author Jeremy Scahill notes: “The arrest of the activists and the subsequent five days they spent locked up in jail is more punishment than any Blackwater mercenaries have received for their deadly actions against Iraqi civilians.”

FBI to Investigate Mortgage Crisis

The FBI has announced an investigation into the practices of more than a dozen companies related to the subprime mortgage crisis that has destabilized the American and global economies. The Securities and Exchange Commission has already launched investigations of its own, and though it’s nice to see the authorities crack down on improper practices, it would be nice to have some oversight before there was a crisis.

Lieberman Says He Won’t Run With McCain

Joe Lieberman, an “Independent Democrat,” staunchly supports the Iraq war, has voted to throw away billions on defense boondoggles, generally gravitates toward all things Republican and has endorsed GOP presidential candidate John McCain, but he draws the line at running alongside McCain as a vice president candidate. Lieberman says that if asked to join a ticket, he would tell McCain, “You can find much better.” For once, Joe, we agree with you.

Dems Upstage the Prez

Because he lacks a legacy—at least the good kind—no one expected much from President Bush’s final State of the Union address, which is probably why Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama managed to steal the spotlight. The Internet is buzzing over Monday’s sideshow.

Bush Goes Out With a Thud

George W. Bush, the president who lied America into a war that will end up costing trillions of dollars, scolded the Democratic-controlled Congress in his final State of the Union address on Monday for undermining “the people’s trust in their government” with too many pet projects. Now that’s chutzpah, coming from a man who never met a spending bill he didn’t like unless it had to do with stem cells and sick children.
