Suspect May Argue White House OK’d Phone-Jamming

The guy indicted in the jamming of Democratic phone lines on election day in 2002 is set to argue that his scheme had the approval of both the Republican National Committee and the White House.
If true, this would be huge: a White House-led attempt to sabotage a Senate election in favor of a Republican.

The Heidi Chronicles

Former Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss wants to build the nation’s first brothel for female customers in the Nevada desert. To get the story, journalist (and Truthdig contributor) Steven Kotler had to survive roadside breakdowns, barren deserts, abandoned towns, a brothel war, and an assortment of cowboys, pimps and angry locals.

Bush Shows Stunning Insights on Diplomacy

Speaking about the North Korean missile situation, Bush told reporters, “You know, the problem with diplomacy is it takes a while to get something done,” while “acting alone, you can move quickly.”

  • Someone call John Foster Dulles, or better yet, Henry Kissinger: They’ve got some competition….

    Bush on Ken Lay
    From ThinkProgress

    Bush Rewrites History on Lay

    President Bush told Larry King that deceased Enron founder Ken Lay was “a good guy.” That’s just patently false. A jury confirmed as much. And as for Lay’s crimes, Bush said he was “disappointed.”

  • Memo to Bush: “Disappointed” is dropping an ice cream cone in the mud. Leaving thousands of employees with worthless pension plans and profiting wildly by knocking California off the power grid ... that’s a bit more than “disappointing.”

    U.S. Recruiters Reportedly Admitting Neo-Nazis to Military

    Lieberman’s Internet Outreach: So Web 1.0 It’s Frightening

    Want to see everything you need to know about how hopelessly out of touch Sen. Joe Lieberman is with the next generation of voters? Check out his campaign website, then check out the site of challenger Ned Lamont:

  • Immediately after the candidates’ Thursday night debate, Lamont’s site was jam-packed with video highlights, media reactions, blogger coverage and fact-checked responses to Lieberman’s charges. Lieberman’s site, however, barely even mentions the debates; there’s nary a blog; and his “news” page hasn’t been updated since Monday. (Update: 12 hours after the debate, the campaign posted a few paragraphs—but that’s it.) It’s such a tone-deaf approach you have to wonder who’s minding the shop over there.

    The Bushes on Larry King
    From crooksandliars.com

    Bush, Pleasing God by Skipping Briefings on Sunday

    In a mostly softball interview with Larry King Thursday night, President Bush said that he doesn’t get intelligence briefings on Sunday. (Presumably because that’s the day the Lord takes a break from those updates, too.)

    Lamont and Lieberman Go Toe to Toe in Debate

    Conn. businessman Ned Lamont, who in the polls is closing in fast on Joe Lieberman, forced the three-term senator in a debate Thursday night to defend his strong support for President Bush over the Iraq war, in addition to charging that Lieberman has made his bed in Congress with lobbyists and special interest groups.
    A few elbows were thrown.

  • Video highlights
  • Individual video clips of each exchange
  • MSNBC Host: Lieberman used GOP talking points (he even channeled Reagan).
  • Lamont blog with media reactions, fact-checking and blogger coverage
  • Point of interest: One of the main blogs featured on Lamont’s site is My Left Nutmeg.
  • President Bush (interviewed before the debate) on Lieberman
  • Truthdig’s interview with Lamont
  • UPDATE #1: Blogger Enigmatic Paradox gives the debate to Lamont, but not for the reason you’d expect….
