Lieberman to Endorse McCain

Sen. Joseph Lieberman, a self-described “Independent Democrat,” is expected to turn his back on the Democratic candidates to endorse John McCain for president. It’s a fitting move for the George Bush apologist, who was rejected by the primary voters of his own party for his unabashed support of the war.

Circling the Wagons in Baghdad

Despite touting increased stability in the outer provinces as proof of the success of the “surge,” the U.S. military is about to abandon those regions altogether. The Pentagon’s new strategy for dealing with a reduction of forces in Iraq is essentially to pull back to Baghdad and hope for the best.

Turkey Bombs Kurds in Iraq

Turkey has dramatically ramped up its cross-border campaign against Kurds in Iraq with an airstrike involving as many as 50 warplanes. The Turkish military says the assault was aimed at Kurdish rebels seeking refuge in Iraq and not “people living in northern Iraq or local groups not engaged in enemy activity.”

Postering for Change in ‘08

It’s hard to limit oneself to just a couple dozen names, slogans and events representing the worst of the Bush years, but that’s what the folks at The Huffington Post have done for a postering campaign designed to promote Democratic candidates and shame Team Bush for its transgressions.

Mukasey Stonewalls Congress in CIA Tape Inquiry

Newly installed Attorney General Michael Mukasey swiftly shot down requests by House and Senate Judiciary Committee leaders, as well as other members of Congress, for information about the Justice Department’s investigation of the CIA tape destruction fiasco—because the department would seem “subject to political influence.”  Oh.

Romney’s Firm to Buy Clear Channel

It’s a big week for big media:  First, Dow Jones & Co. officially approved Rupert Murdoch’s takeover of The Wall Street Journal, and now Lew Rockwell is reporting that Mitt Romney’s private equity firm is buying radio behemoth Clear Channel.

Campaign ‘08 Rocked by Outbreak of Accountability

It’s not at all shocking when candidates and their assorted aides take pot shots at each other as they slog through the long and dirty campaign trail, but it’s at least a bit surprising when they ‘fess up to it.  That’s just what happened— twice! —in about 24 hours.

Clinton Campaign Takes a Mud Bath

Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire campaign co-chair issued a sleazy attack on Barack Obama on Wednesday, which he tried to pass off as an exploration of “openings for Republican dirty tricks.” It’s a tactic we’re likely to see more of as the candidates jockey for position and one-time front-runners get desperate.

Huckabee’s Sermons Off Limits

The Huckabee campaign has refused to give the media much more than scraps of the candidate’s religious speeches, leaving his 12 years as a pastor relatively shrouded in mystery. We already know he doesn’t believe in evolution, thought at one time that AIDS patients should be quarantined and isn’t ashamed “to let you know that I believe Adam and Eve were real people,” so what is he hiding?

Law Journal Names Gonzales ‘Lawyer of the Year’

The editors of the American Bar Association Journal have named former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as this year’s winner of the Lawyer of the Year award—and, perhaps even more curiously, they already have picked Gonzales’ replacement, Attorney General Michael Mukasey, as the winner for 2008.
