Bolton Confirmation Is Dead, Says Political Insider

Ding Dong, Bolton’s tenure is dead! The man who showed utter contempt for the U.N. will probably be America’s ambassador to the world no longer, reports The Washington Note’s well-placed Steve Clemons.

  • It’s time for everyone who cares about international diplomacy to strut—like John Travolta, above.

    Schwarzenegger Muses About ‘Hot’-Blooded Latina Lawmaker

    A tape (not yet available) has surfaced in which Calif. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger talks about the “hot” and racially mixed blood of a legislator. But there’s no hay to be made here: The legislator says she embraces the label.

  • Above: screenshot from a promotional video that Schwarzenegger made about Rio’s Carnival in which he expressed an early interest in mixed-race women.

  • The Senate leadership threatens Disney with legal sanctions
  • Watch conservative pundit Bill Bennett denounce the film

    U.N.: Gaza at the Breaking Point

    Sealed borders, regular military incursions and poor quality of life have brought Gaza to the breaking point, a U.N. official has said.  Karen Abuzayd, head of the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, also warned that current tactics for dealing with Gaza have failed to inspire a spirit of compromise among Palestinians, and instead foster anger and resentment.

    Administration Seeks to Protect ?Interrogation? Methods

    Legislation put forward by the Bush administration this week would legalize the same torture techniques recently banned by the Army.  By selectively interpreting the Geneva Conventions, the legislation would allow CIA operatives and even the Army, should it decide to revert to previous rules, to conduct interrogations using unsavory methods.

    Facebook Rebellion
    From Facebook

    Friendster Rebellion: A Privacy-Concern Dam Break?

    Bush’s warrantless wiretapping program failed to arouse much more than a collective shrug across much of America, but when the social networking site Facebook recently began broadcasting every change a user makes to his online “friends,” (“you’re out of my top-50,” for example), the community rebelled—quickly and viciously. Could this be the start of something?

    Just a Friendly Reminder…

    Forty-six percent of Americans still believe there was a connection between Saddam and 9/11. The good news? That number is down from 69% since September 2003. (via Salon)

  • At this rate, the truth will become common knowledge around the same time Suri Cruise, above, graduates from college.

  • Couric and Bush

    Holy Truth-Telling, Batman!

    Quote of the week: Bush, in an Oval Office interview with Katie Couric, “The hardest part of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror….” (video and transcript)

  • Why should that be so tough? Sure, Iraq didn’t have WMD, wasn’t harboring terrorists, and had nothing to do with 9/11, but…. OK, maybe it should be kind of tough.

    Just say What?
    From Time

    Stoner Boom

    Drug use among baby boomers is up, while use among teens is down, according to new government figures.

  • That actually makes sense. If teens started paying as much attention to the doings of Bush & Co. as their forebears, we’d see those numbers rising in unison.
