Shark jumping takes practice.

* wapo via rimone:
"Today the company plans to announce a new online product aimed at being a one-stop shop for searching federal government Web sites. The launch of Google U.S. Government Search,"
dick cheney's nightmare. (fwiw, google is flying an american flag on the site. the wingnuts will no doubt claim that as a success)

* maha:
"Malkin’s blog is all about targeting the people she wants her readers to hate. Hate is what Malkin is all about. It’s her reason for living. She lies and distorts and smears, and she cultivates hate.

Right now I’m so furious (that’s anger, not hate) I wish I believed in hell so I could imagine Malkin in it. At least, we’ve still got karma."
* dana priest isnt convinced that the govt is monitoring her phone. d'oh.

" I think Fitzgerald either got something so significant that he was willing to let the Rove perjury go in exchange for having a less impeachable witness, he couldn't finalize the case, or there's something about the story that makes Rove less guilty (on the Novak leak, not the obstruction) that we have thought he was."
* larry johnson:
"Karl is a shameless bastard. Small wonder his mother killed herself. Once she discovered what a despicable soul she had spawned she apparently saw no other way out. It would be one thing if his vile tactics were simply mere smears of politicians like Kerry and Murtha. They are big boys and should be able to defend themselves quite ably against this turd. But Rove, like Josef Goebbels, has used fear and smear as his primary tools to keep George Bush in power. And to what end?
The time has come to say enough. This is not about Democrat, or Independent, or Republican. This is a fight for the soul of this nation. Karl Rove may have cut a deal to stay out of jail and avoid prosecution, but that does not free him to attack the patriotism of Americans who care deeply about their country and its security. I will guarantee you one thing--Karl's mom would not be proud."

from a comment at larry's:
"Shark jumping takes practice.

This is just sad."

Of course not. The DoJ/NSA/PoS wouldn't do anything like that.

That's why their suing the New Jersey attorney general to block their attempts to get records from the big 5 telcos!!!

Sweet suffering Jesus, what the hell is it going to take to wake these fucking people up?!

Post writers are always flippant on the online chats...haven't we figured that out by now?

And if she were completely putting it off I don't think she would have joked about asking for inside tips.

ha...the only way for sure that she'd know that her phones weren't tapped - or at least not care - was if she really didn't have sources.
