Who Said Hawks Don't Flock? John Bolton Visits Jailed Judy Miller
The Washington Note

This just in from Arianna Huffington. John Bolton, who doesn't have time for many other journalists, made some time in his busy schedule to drop in on and chat with jailed New York Times writer Judy Miller.
The Huffington Post reports:

According to a trusted Judy File source, Bolton recently took time out of his busy schedule to pay a jailhouse visit to Judy.
No word on what they talked about. Maybe they swapped notes on Pat Fitzgerald (Judy: "He really got mad when I wouldn't tell him what he wanted..." Bolton: "...and they say I've got a temper!"(laughter all around))

More on the Terrorism Conference tomorrow, but seriously Mr. Ambassador. . .still trying to leak stuff to Judy Miller?


Bush's $2 Million Barbecue        
soundbitten

Remember that "regular guy" poll from last year that found that "voters would rather flip burgers and drink beer at a backyard barbecue with President Bush than Sen. John Kerry"?

The poll made perfect sense, of course -- who wouldn't like to get drunk with a teetoler whose wife made him quit drinking decades ago? That'd be a lot of fun.

Until today, however, I never noticed any opportunities for regular guys to make their Bush barbecue dreams a reality. The Associated Press reports:

He arrived before noon, local time, at a neighbor's ranch for a barbecue where he was expected to raise at least $2 million for the Republican National Committee, said RNC spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt.
Maybe they swapped notes on Pat Fitzgerald (Judy: "He really got mad when I wouldn't tell him what he wanted..." Bolton: "...and they say I've got a temper!"(laughter all around))

More on the Terrorism Conference tomorrow, but seriously Mr. Ambassador. . .still trying to leak stuff to Judy Miller?
