I am now a Gator fan!

Congratulations and a hearty "Well Done!" goes out to the University of Florida:

Jeb Bush denied honor at U. of Florida

The [faculty] Senate voted 38-28 Thursday against giving the honorary degree to Bush, who left office in January

We had a similar problem at my alma mater where they were reluctant to so honor one J. Dumbforth Quayle. Unfortunately, they caved for the money, as his grandpappy was a HUGE donor and a life trustee.

From the White House

The White House
Washington, D.C.
Executive Order


The White House does not intend to comply with any subpoenas from Congress directed at senior executive officials in connection with the U.S. Attorney dismissals.

However, the individuals named will be made available for interviews from Congress if:

1) No White House official will be sworn or take any oath;
2) No transcript of any kind will be taken or provided
3) All Congressional questioners must be naked
4) All interviews will take place in inner tubes in a "lazy river" water park ride.

I couldn't have said it any better myself

From Crooks and Liars:

Air America's Rachel Maddow (one of my favorite hosts) speaking on CNN about using torture to get information:

"You can't say it doesn't matter what we're doing cause we're trying to get Al Qaeda. It matters what we do. We're America. That's more important than Al-Qaeda."
