Putin Warns of a New ‘Missile Crisis’

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that Bush’s proposed missile shield in Europe could create a situation analogous to the Cuban missile crisis.  He added, “It’s not the same and we’re not enemies.

$2.4 Trillion to Keep the Wars Going

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan could cost $2.4 trillion over the next 10 years, a figure that includes interest for putting war costs on the proverbial credit card.

Dr. Watson Hangs It Up

Although his contributions to the field of genetics will probably continue to define his scholarly legacy, it seems that the final chapter of DNA pioneer James Watson’s career has been irrevocably marred by the reckless and inflammatory remarks he recently made about race and intelligence.

Rice Takes a Licking in Congress

Typically cool as a cucumber, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice struggled to hold it together Thursday as members of the House Oversight Committee let her have it on everything from the enormous, expensive and incomplete U.S. Embassy in Baghdad to Blackwater’s killing spree.

Brownie’s Looking to Do Heck of a Job in Calif.

Michael D. Brown’s got cojones—either that, or a distressing lack of self-awareness on some fundamental level.  The former FEMA director, roundly roasted for his too-little-too-late leadership style during Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath, is now aiming to bring his disaster management skills to California’s fire-ravaged regions.

Bush’s California Adventure

The president has at last landed in the Golden State to see for himself the fires that have caused over a billion dollars in damage and forced hundreds of thousands of people from their homes.

Jimmy Carter: Bush Will Make a Good Ex-President

Jimmy Carter told the new Web site Guardian America that, compared to the Bush presidency at least, George W. Bush will make a “very good” ex-president. Carter also said of Hillary Clinton’s seemingly insurmountable lead in the polls: “One thing I know is that, this far ahead of time in the past, it’s been impossible to predict the outcome of the election.”

Court Victory for DIY Porn Enthusiasts

There’s been a slight shift in the regulation of pornography in America, thanks to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, that might appeal to those of-age-and-consenting types interested in creating racy footage of themselves without the goal of profiting (monetarily, anyhow).
