    Schwarzenegger Reaffirms Support for Minutemen

    The Calif. governor said about the group of private citizens who are patrolling the country’s border with Mexico, “I support any time that a civilian wants to go and do the job that law enforcement cannot do.” (Story—scroll down)

  • Ironically, the governor made the statement at a campaign stop while trying to burnish his credentials with Latino voters—many of whom view Minutemen as akin to the KKK.

  • Also, higher up in the piece: Karl Rove gets booed while trying to woo Latinos at a conference.

    Rep. Emanuel Makes Satirical Mincemeat of White House Salaries

    Responding to a recently published list of White House salaries—including $100,000 a year for the “director for lessons learned,” Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) ran through a few “lessons” the White House apparently missed.

  • Money quote: “When you’ve ‘turned the corner’ in Iraq more times than Danica Patrick at the Indy 500, it means you are going in circles.”

    The official anti-terrorism database is so flawed that it lists 8,591 potential terrorism targets in Indiana—50% more than in New York and twice as many as in California. Examples: “Old MacDonaldÂ’s Petting Zoo, the Amish Country Popcorn factory and the Mule Day Parade.”

    Novak Names Sources in CIA Leak Case

    Columnist Robert Novak revealed for the first time, in a column to be released Wednesday, that both Karl Rove and former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow had confirmed Valerie Plame’s status as a CIA agent. He said that this occurred only after another administration official first supplied him with the info.
    This is not a huge deal, relatively speaking, but certainly of interest to Plamegate junkies….

    The Most Overpaid White House Staffers

    The National Journal just published the new salary list for Oval Office employees, and Think Progress deliciously singled out a few who definitely aren’t earning their money. For instance: Deborah Nirmala Misir, the ethics advisor, earns $114,688; Stuart Baker, director for lessons learned, earns $106,641.
    There’s a “director for lessons learned”? Where’s his office? A solitary confinement box at Guantanamo?

    Study: Mushroom Drugs Produce Mystical Experiences

    Duh!
    In a Johns Hopkins study, many volunteers who took a single dose of psilocybin-laden “magic” mushrooms said it was “one of the most meaningful or spiritually significant experiences of their lives. Some compared it to the birth of a child or the death of a parent.”
