Friday, May 18, 2007:

  1. Wolfie was able to shake down the Bank for at least the $400,000 bonus payable if he stayed in power until June by claiming that the Bank was responsible for the girlfriend mess as it signed off on the deal.  Who actually approved it?  With some qualifications in their opinion, most notably that they were being asked to close the barn door after the horse had escaped, Bush’s former Solicitor General Ted Olson and Eugene Scalia, son of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia!

  2. Tony Karon has a much deeper analysis of the ‘civil war’ now going on in Palestine.  It is, as you probably suspected, a neocon operation run by a Washington puppet.

  3. In the conspiracy-theory-meets-prime-time (or at least late nite) department, a Letterman joke (on the posting labeled Wednesday, May 16):  “There’s a rumor coming out of Washington that Vice President Dick Cheney, when he was CEO of Halliburton, used to visit prostitutes. This would explain why one girl was paid 2 billion dollars.”
