Classic Scheer-Carter Interview From ‘Playing President’

During a 1976 interview for Playboy magazine that would produce one of the most famous remarks by a presidential candidate in modern times, Jimmy Carter told Robert Scheer, “I’ve committed adultery in my heart many times.” Check out an excerpt of that exchange, along with many more in Scheer’s new book, “Playing President.”

Molly Ivins: Bush’s Hawaiian Education

Bush just designated a stretch of the Hawaiian Islands a national monument after watching a documentary about the ocean there. How nice. So what, exactly, is his excuse for not even watching Al Gore’s movie on a slightly more important environmental issue?

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.)
