Which Kyle? - Shadowproof

(Photo from a strangely prescient , discussing whether Sampson would make a good doppleganger replacement for Rove if he had to resign.  Intriguing how these two keep popping up together, isn't it?  And even have the same taste in ties.)It is shaping up to be quite an interesting morning.  It seems that Kyle Sampson's testimony has been leaked out everywhere in advance of the Senate Judiciary committee meeting — which screams political stage management to me, and it says that Mr. Sampson, Mr. Rove, Sen. Hatch and others have been talking about how to manage the political fall-out.   Both...

I ask you, considering the margins that we are looking at this morning in a whole lot of the races that the Democrats won yesterday, in both the House and the Senate, what was :In private talks before the election, Emanuel and other top Democrats told their members they cannot allow the party's liberal wing to dominate the agenda next year. Democrats will hold 30 or 35 seats that went for Bush in the past, meaning that Democratic candidates such as Brad Ellsworth in rural Indiana are likely to face competitive races again in 2008. Still, their interests are likely to collide with those of...

Sen. Chris Dodd's First Speech On FISA Today - Shadowproof

Sen. Chris Dodd gave a barnburner of a speech this morning, laying out the reasons that the rule of law ought to trump the CYA demands of the Bush Administration and complicit telecoms who trailed along in their unlawful wake — before and after 9/11, for years.  I’m reprinting the speech in its entirety — as it was prepared for delivery — because I felt that folks who weren’t able to follow along would appreciate the read.In the face of a challenge to the rule of law and the foundations of government, true patriots stand up.  Thank you to Sen. Dodd for doing so today.____________________Mr....

Orrin Hatch out to call bullshit flipping nonsense on ?  :Backers of the congressional bill, including conservative Republican Sens. Orrin G. Hatch (Utah) and Charles E. Grassley (Iowa), have said repeatedly that Bush is dead wrong about the $83,000 figure. Only New York has sought to cover children from families with incomes that high, and the administration turned down the request.But both sides have dug in. Moderate Republicans openly fretted yesterday that the White House had made the House...
