Without DeLay, Has the GOP Lost Its Moral Compass?

Dennis Hastert gets caught in a suspect land deal,  Rep. Jerry Lewis is in deep with a stinko lobbying firm, and the Department of Homeland Security has become a Republican playground. Can’t the GOP, self-proclaimed bastion of morality, small government and fiscal responsibility, get anything right?

Truthdigger of the Week: John Murtha

Truthdig salutes Pa. Rep. John Murtha for his sustained leadership in demanding a pullout of U.S. troops out from Iraq. Particularly inspiring was his conduct during Thursday’s congressional debate over the war. A GOP congressman all but called Murtha a coward, and the 38-year Marine veteran thundered back a response that sent the congressman scurrying for cover. In doing so, Murtha again demonstrated the Republican fallacy of equating a call for withdrawal with weakness. It’s a lesson more Democrats could stand to learn.

  • Watch the video of Murtha on the House floor
  • Read Murtha’s words from the day of the debate (Wash Po, AP, N.Y. Times)
  • UPDATE: Murtha steamrolls over Tim Russert (h/t: Huff Po)

    Gene Gerard: White House Failing America?s AIDS Crisis

    A new report shows that Bush has slashed anti-AIDS programs across the board. Meanwhile, he’s pandering to the religious right by pushing abstinence-until-marriage programs—regardless of the fact that they are proven ineffective at stopping the spread of HIV. Don’t bother Bush with facts; his mind is made up.

    Three Hundred Twenty Billion Little Pieces

    America has allocated just under $320 billion to date on the Iraq war—a price tag so staggeringly large that it has almost become an abstraction. To help put that number into context, we’re asking our readers to chime in with suggestions as to what else you could buy for $320 billion. (Primer: $320 billion would fund America’s adoption of the Kyoto Protocol.)

    Classic Scheer Interviews From ‘Playing President’

    In a 1980 interview between George H.W. Bush and then-L.A. Times reporter Robert Scheer, Bush revealed his belief in a winnable nuclear war—which many observers think lost him the Republican nomination to Ronald Reagan. Check out this interview and many more in Scheer’s new book “Playing President.”

    Joe Conason: A Whiff of Brimstone, a Shameful Silence on Coulter

    “With the predictable regularity of a locust plague, Ann Coulter and her enablers at the once-reputable firm of Random House have issued yet another volume of fascistic entertainment. Now the hard-drinking, trash-talking, fortysomething bachelorette bills herself as a Christian moralist, in holy battle against the liberal heathens.”

    Molly Ivins: Eye to Eye in Iraq

    The media continues to fizz with excitement at Bush’s “spontaneous” trip to Iraq, and his “eye to eye” with Prime Minister Maliki.  However,  continuously escalating violence reveals his visit to be just another misleading “Mission Accomplished” photo-op moment.

    The Truthdig Interview: Mark Fainaru-Wada

    Mark Fainaru-Wada is one of two San Francisco Chronicle reporters who broke the Barry Bonds steroid stories. With a new book out, Fainaru-Wada discussed with Truthdig contributor James Harris whether Congress doesn’t have better things to do than hold hearings into pro sports; whether pro baseball really cares about cleaning up its image; and the federal government’s attempts to get Fainaru-Wada to disclose his confidential sources.

    Robert Scheer: DeLays Mission Continues

    From the tone of his farewell address last week, you’d think Tom DeLay was being carried out of Congress on the shoulders of his colleagues, rather than slithering out of office with his tail between his legs.
