Important detail about what damien wrote. There may be two strands, but Judy didn't get either of them. While the powder the Senators and the real newsmen got did test positive as anthrax, hers didn't. She got confectioners sugar.good point. thnx ew.
Which, while we're donning our tinfoil anew on this issue, ought to raise a red flag. If you're trying to use the anthrax attacks to keep fear levels high, having a friendly journalist tell the story of the fear of receiving anthrax is a nice touch. (Note, unlike the other newsmen beyond Stevens, Judy opened the envelope of "anthrax" herself.)
"Do you suppose that the Dems keep saying the idea of impeachment is just nonsense is a strategery to calm the neocon twits and their Talibangelist base long enough to turn the tables? I'm having a very difficult time wrapping my head around the notion that impeaching the bastards for all their crimes is "nonsense" when I look at what these same neocons did to Bill Clinton over nothing!"it certainly is a strategery. and i'm not sure it is a smart one. karl rove kept boxing their heads just a few short months ago - remember that? - when Rush and FoxNews et al ran around screaming that a Dem House would lead to impeachment. It was remarkable. Meanwhile, John Conyers has already written, and published, the entire case :-)

"i don't wanna drag the authorities down on your or my heads but for the last few years i've been wondering how come some doomed person (doomed by knowing they have some life-threatening disease and aren't long for this world) hasn't already snuck into a repub-only event and like...um...done a John Wilkes Booth."and adds:
"lukery, feel free to delete this if it makes you uncomfortable--i wouldn't blame you one bit."Delete it? Front-paged, baby.
