Iraqi Death Toll

Iraq, by the Numbers

That’s the stunning new count of Iraqis killed in the war, according to that country’s health minister—a figure three times higher than previous Iraqi estimates.

  • The minister based his tally on an estimate of 100 bodies arriving at Iraq’s morgues and hospitals every day. He dismissed as inaccurate the widely touted claim of 655,000 Iraqi dead, made by a British medical journal.

    Mehlman to Quit RNC

    CNN reported that Ken Mehlman is going to leave as chair of the RNC. According to CNN’s John King, “He’s been on the gerbil wheel, as one of his close friends put it, for well in excess of six years now, and he’s tired.”

  • Yeah, that, and he just got the biggest spanking of his political life…

    Meet Sen. Jon Tester

    Curious about the little-known new senator from Montana? He’s a crewcut-sporting farmer and former music teacher whom Time’s Joe Klein called the epitome of the Democratic Party’s populist wing.

    Webb Wins and Dems Take Control of Congress, Two News Agencies Report

    The Associated Press and MSNBC have both called the Va. Senate race for Jim Webb, which would give Democrats control of the House and Senate for the first time since 1994.

    Ragin' Recount

    Get Ready for Ragin’ Recount 2006!

    If James Webb prevails in the Senate race recount in Virginia, Dems will control both houses of Congress. If Allen wins, the GOP retains the reins in the Senate.

    Update: We may be wrong about the above. (mea culpa after the jump…)
