Ann Coulter’s Growing Legal Troubles

You may recall that right-wing hate-monger Ann Coulter was accused of voter fraud not too long ago, for registering to vote using her real estate agent’s address.

Military Sacrifices Soldiers for Escalation

The Pentagon will no longer limit the time a soldier can spend fighting on active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. The military can now cycle the same troops indefinitely in and out of Iraq and Afghanistan, where soldiers previously could not serve more than 24 cumulative months.

Democrats Respond to Bush’s Speech

Needless to say, the Democrats hated Bush’s plan for escalating the war in Iraq, although they differed on how to defeat the action.

Fox News Plays the Name Game

The folks at Fox News, always innovative in the ways of fairness and balance, do some of their most inflammatory work on the banners that hover at the bottom of the screen. Not to rest at mislabeling party affiliation, they’ve taken to editorializing given names.
