Conyers hearing update

All good news. First, Conyers dodged Sensenbrenner and got a hearing room after all, along with an overflow room. The event will be held at HC-9, The Capitol, 2:30-4:30 pm tomorrow.

Second, one source reports that every major network will be there with the exception of Fox. (They don't have to 'cause they're fair and balanced.) CSPAN-3 will broadcast the proceedings live.

Third, Walter "Freedom Fries" Jones, the conservative NC representative who has now turned against the war and is asking for a withdrawal plan, announced today that he will co-sponsor legislation calling for the truth on the Downing Street Memo.

Fourth, six additional British memos have surfaced to solidify the case against Bush with respect to lying and incompetence around the Iraq invasion.

Fifth, our stunned and clueless press seem to be waking up to the fact that they may have to cover this story, even while they cling to the defense, "it's not news because everyone already knows Bush lied, even though we never told you."

And sixth, Conyers has come up with the definitive answer to the "memo versus minutes" terminology. He's calling it the Downing Street scandal.

Some people are taking bets that we'll have a sudden terror alert tomorrow, but I prefer to be optimistic for once.
