The video that made a liar out of Bush on Katrina has reignited the controversy over his administration’s incompetent response to the hurricane.

Arianna Tries to Convert Colbert

In a hilarious exchange, ex-conservative Huffington defends herself against charges of treachery from the arch-conservative Stephen Colbert.

Pay Your Bills, Become Terror Threat

A retired Texas schoolteacher pays off a larger-than-usual chunk of his credit card bill—and the payment gets frozen as Homeland Security investigates. “It’s scary how easily someone in Homeland Security can get permission to spy,” says the teacher.

Ports Deal to Close by Monday?

A Bush official claims that the Dubai ports deal will close Friday or Monday, despite a 45-day review by the U.S. government.
