Iraq’s Grim Death Toll: Over 3,000 in June Alone

An average of more than 100 civilians were killed PER DAY in Iraq last month, the highest tally since the fall of Baghdad, according to the U.N. And that number has been steadily increasing since at least last summer.
So not only are things horrifically bad in Iraq, they are getting worse.

Pregnancy Centers Giving False Info on Abortion

From the Wash Po: “Federally funded ‘pregnancy resource centers’ are incorrectly telling women that abortion results in an increased risk of breast cancer, infertility and deep psychological trauma….”
Surprise, surprise.

Bush Set to Veto Stem Cell Bill

It would be the first time the president has used his override power; but that’s only because he has made unprecedented use of so-called signing statements to ignore the parts of new laws that he doesn’t feel like obeying.

Gonzales: Bush Personally Blocked DOJ Probe of Spy Program

Testifying before Congress this morning, Atty. Gen. Alberto Gonzales said that Bush halted the investigation into the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program by personally denying security clearances to Department of Justice lawyers investigating the case. (article or video)

  • Pardon us for being reflexively cynical about Bush’s motives in this one, but the president doesn’t have a shred of credibility on this issue.

    Jon Stewart’s Sexual Bush-Merkel Joke Not So Outlandish Anymore…

    On last night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart joked that we were lucky Bush’s “open mike” didn’t pick him up “pointing out some Merkel camel toe,” a lewd sexual reference to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, in light of Bush’s just publicized unsolicited massage of Merkel, Stewart is looking prophetic all of a sudden.

    Groper in Chief?

    At the G8 summit, President Bush gave German Chancellor Angela Merkel an unsolicited back massage, which an obviously uncomfortable Merkel quickly shrugged off. (h/t: Crooks and Liars)

    ‘Yo Bush!’ Tony Blair Mocked as U.S. Poodle

    Responding to Monday’s “open mike” incident in Russia, The Guardian said Blair “all but offers to carry [Condoleezza Rice’s] bags” to the Middle East (Bush denied him), revealing Blair’s subservient role in the relationship. (article, British press reactions)

  • Not to mention the fact that Bush carried on the conversation about one of the most dangerous powder kegs in the world while chewing with an open mouth and barely looking at Blair.

    Israel Says Offensive Could Last Weeks

    That’s the assessment of the head of Israel’s northern army command. Meanwhile, an Israeli strike killed at least 16 people near Beirut and Hezbollah killed at least one with another rocket volley into northern Israel; the toll has risen to at least 227 killed in Lebanon and 25 in Israel.

  • However, Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni gave the first hope that earnest efforts are underway to find a cease-fire solution.

    Boehner Gets Nailed on Campaign Ad Hypocrisy

    From Greg Sargent at the Prospect: “GOP House Majority Leader John Boehner wants you to know that it’s OK if Republicans use images of people killed on 9/11 for political purposes, but at the same time, it’s very very bad indeed if Dems show pictures of flag-draped coffins.” How’s that?....
