What a day in politics!
Bush shows that he really cares about kids, but only the really poor ones, and even then, not that much. Even Republicans are mad at him for this veto...
It looks as if the two Koreas, North and South, are ready to sign a peace agreement: unfortunately, since the US was a signatory to the ceasefire, they also need to sign off on the peace, and at the moment are unwilling to do so. Yay! Let's keep that 50 year old dead war going!
Larry Craig is denied the right to withdraw his guilty plea, and decides as a result that he will remain in the Senate until the end of his term, rather than resigning last week...
And finally, the Republicans have released their logo for their national convention next summer. In Minneapolis, just down the street from the airport. Yes, that airport, the Larry Craig airport. And the logo appears to be an elephant. With what to me appears to be a rather wide stance.

Yours, depressed, amazed and amused,
N.

And don't forget the denial of Torture and the "secret" memo advocating it';s use...Another fine day in this mad mad world here in the United States....What happened to our Democracy you ask? Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield, et all....And their interests lie deep deep deep in the ground!

Larry Craig sounds like a lying nutcase!

It's disgusting. Bush should stick his signature on that peace treaty and then keep it out of their affairs.

I cannot believe what that administration is like.

I'm not surprised about the veto. My husband was just saying yesterday that since Bush is close to the end of his term, he doesn't even need to pretend he cares.
