Administration So Desperate They Paid Off Journalists 

They are just a bunch of damn crooks, folks.--Alex

Williams, one of the most prominent black conservatives in the media, said he understands "why some people think it's unethical." Asked if people would be justified in thinking he sold his opinions to the government for cash, he said: "It's fair for someone to make that assessment."

    Sore Losers 

    It is well past time that Democrats developed a firm resolve to Do the Right Thing even when it appears partisan, because Republicans have long since had an iron will to do the partisan thing even when it's not right.  And until Democrats are willing to stand for something instead of meekly trying to get along, they will continue to be both sore and losers.

    America: Land of Liberty 

    So, we're now looking for ways to detain terrorist suspects indefinitely --- possibly for life --- if we can't find enough evidence to charge them with anything.

    And some prominent conservatives are claiming that the Japanese internment camps in WWII weren't so bad, and advocating a policy of subordinating the rights of Muslim Americans to the goals of the War on Terror.

    And we already know that the Bush administration supports extraordinary rendition, the practice of shipping terrorist suspects to other countries to be tortured.

    So we may very soon find ourselves in a situation where innocent Americans are 'disappeared' forever, and periodically sent overseas to be tortured, simply because they happen to be Muslims.

    Let freedom ring.
