Quick news update

All hell has broken loose on Rove. Get your summary here.

The Bush administration is bullying Congress to suppress evidence of the worst Abu Ghraib abuses yet, along with all future investigation and oversight of such abuses.

Rep. John Conyers has released a timeline of events leading up to and subsequent to the Iraq invasion. It’s called Last Throes of Credibility: Five Years of Lies and Deception (36-page PDF). Here's his press release regarding the work in progress. He adds, “However, I am not done yet. It is just a draft, and obviously, the story of DSM, Rovegate, and the ongoing deception in Iraq is still evolving.”

Running against Bernie Sanders for Senate, a Vermont Republican wants to impeach Bush.

Morrisseau said he imagines there is a lot of soul-searching going on among the Republicans who continue to support Bush.

"If you're an old and decent Republican and politics takes a 180 in your country, it sometimes takes a while to tell what you ought to do. It took me a while. I've been at this for years." . . .

"I'm a Republican," he said. "I'm not a Brown Shirt. I've never, in any contemplation of U.S. history, seen anything like that asserted at any time. I don't think we're going to get much done in the way of standard politics until we clean this neo-con nest out."

This is the least we ought to expect of Senator Snowe in her 2006 campaign.
