The Shock Doctrine move by Conservative goons is on the move. They re using the fear of rising gas prices to push the ridiculous notion that all will be saved if we drill in ANWR. If it didn't pass with the White House controlled by a conservative and Congress controlled by conservatives, how will it ever pass? I think the real reason they didn't get it pushed through before the 2006 election is because drilling for oil is very expensive and Cheney's blood brothers in the oil field really didn't want to spend the cash. Why bother with record profits lining their pockets...

Dan Bartlett, one of President Bush's most trusted advisers and his longest-serving aide, said Friday he is resigning to begin a career outside of government.
The move was announced on Bartlett's 36th birthday.

Lawyers for Democratic House candidate Christine Jennings threw down the gauntlet yesterday, asking a state court to secure electronic voting machines and data used in the election. The move would preserve the equipment in Florida's Sarasota County for scrutiny by Jennings' legal team. A hearing on the suit is scheduled for this afternoon.---Update: The judge granted the Jennings campaign request to secure the voting machines today.
A Herald-Tribune survey of officials who ran Sarasota County polling places shows that voting problems were widespread and many voters were frustrated in attempts to vote in the District 13 congressional race.
More than one-third of precinct officials responding said they received complaints that voters struggled to get their votes to register.
I'm going to make the move tonight. I hope there are no problems, but who knows. I have some great people in place handling the technical side. The new template will look very similar to this one. On Radio Userland, I just passed the 50 million hits mark and that's pretty amazing to me. I want to thank all the readers, comment monitors, Mike's Blog Round Up and all the people who lend their constant support to C&L that has made it one of the top blogs in the world.
DC Media Girl and I talked about the insanity that has swept through the radical right since Cindy started her vigil. We often say, " You can't make this up!" Case in point:
Instead of fighting in the war, they fight amongst themselves. Simply brilliant!
