Rich Lipski / The Washington Post

Macaca-thon!

Can’t get enough backstory on Va. Sen. George Allen’s racist remark? Neither can the Washington Post, which posted this 1,300-word profile on the object of Allen’s remark, 20-year-old U. Va student S.R. Sidarth.

  • Allen’s lead over his rival for the Senate has evaporated in the wake of his comment. (Go, blog power!)

    Bush Inventing Reasons to Oppose Stem Cell Research

    Don’t both Bush with new facts; his mind’s made up.
    Even though scientists have discovered a way to experiment on stem cells without killing viable embryos, Bush still opposes the research, for maddeningly opaque reasons. A spokesperson tried to say it’s because the research wasn’t peer-reviewed, but that’s just false. (Above photo a satire)

    Faced With Reality, Coulter Walks

    French Offer More Troops

    14th Time’s the Charm

    Whether it’s because he’s facing a tough campaign against an antiwar Democrat or he just lost his supply of kool-aid, Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) has swung ‘round to sanity on the Iraq war.  After returning from his 14th visit to Iraq, the once-steadfast hawk called for a timetable for withdrawal and bashed Rumsfeld: “I haven’t had faith in the secretary in a long time.”

What if he thus left the city ill-prepared to respond to such a disaster? That’s the provocative thesis of a new book written by two top-flight investigative journalists.

    Republicans to Spy Agencies: Make Iran Scarier

    Senior Bush officials and other top Republicans are apparently angry that U.S. intelligence agencies aren’t issuing more ominous threats about Iran. The GOP’ers, marred by (but unrepentant for) their Iraq debacle, are eager to use their lethal Tonka Toys once again—this time in Iran.

  • Check out an intelligence expert at AMERICAblog who argues that Iran poses no imminent threat to the U.S.
