Gingrich goes for ‘revealed Federal Christianity’ by cataloging memorials in Washington D.C.  If you ask me, the man’s lost it, completely.  The cornerstone of the Capitol was laid in 1793, with Masonic ceremonies.  Smoking something, Newt?

Malpractice mythology.  Everyone’s got an iron in this fire.  The GAO laid it on the line a while ago.  We need to understand the middleman, the insurance company, before we go burning witches.

Feds paid pundit to push Bush policy.  We’re already knee-deep in yellow journalism; one might naturally expect this as the next step in the evolutionary chain.  Rafe poses the best question, given this revelation.

Bush names Mack and Breaux to head tax panel.  Put on your foil hats and defend your wallet ... Connie Mack was a member of the Flat Tax Caucus, and Breaux, as a former “Blue Dog Democrat”,  is halfway there.

NY Times Op-Ed Contributor:

We are all torturers now.  “Mr. Gonzales is unfit because the slow river of litigation is certain to bring before the next attorney general a raft of torture cases that challenge the very policies that he personally helped devise and put into practice. He is unfit because, while the attorney general is charged with upholding the law, the documents show that as White House counsel, Mr. Gonzales, in the matter of torture, helped his client to concoct strategies to circumvent it. And he is unfit, finally, because he has rightly become the symbol of the United States’ fateful departure from a body of settled international law and human rights practice for which the country claims to stand.”  Heave-ho.

Oppose drilling in the Valle Vidal.  Interesting, that at this present moment in time, the US Forest Service won’t allow snowmobiles up there when the elk are in the Valle.  I suppose drilling is *better* for the elk ... ?

Review of “Oppenheimer: Portrait of an Enigma.”  Having grown up around the Institute for Advanced Study, I can safely say that your average theoretical physics genius is about as political as a hedge.  Surround the hedge with Communists; it’s still a hedge.

Nice little flip-flop.  House Rule Change Makes Ethics Probes Harder.  Split decisions, or no decisions, equals no wrist-slapping.  The circus that is the House of Representatives just gets more perverse.  We’ll have harlequins and pierrots dancing in the aisles soon ...

Columbia Journalism Review:

Blog-Gate.  “First, much of the bloggers’ vaunted fact-checking was seriously warped. Their driving assumptions were often drawn from flawed information or based on faulty logic. Personal attacks passed for analysis.”  Sounds terribly familiar, doesn’t it?  Gobs to say about this, but it would be better discussed over a cup of hot chocolate (it’s slushy and cold here).  Don’t have the time to type it all out.
