voting for Bush: the parachute pants of this decade

* Passport:
"Taiwan's independence-minded president appears on the brink of impeachment."
write your own joke.

* Passport:
"The good folks over at the National Security Archive... file a lot of Freedom of Information Act requests with the US government. So imagine their surprise when, after filing a request with the FBI in 2005 for documents relating to al Qaeda, they received a letter stating that "no records responsive to your FOIA request regarding AL QAEDA ... were located...". Slate has a copy of the letter up and, as Timothy Noah points out, the Bureau noticeably does not say we have documents, but you can't have them. They say no documents can be located. It must be seen to be believed."
* busby 45, bilbray 47 (link) and GOTV efforts CA wide are flagging, for both parties. meanwhile the wingnuts are going mad because busby said something. or something.

* driftglass:
"In five years, having voted for Bush will have become the parachute pants of this decade."
