Mike's Blog Roundup

The Pump Handle: Sam Fox is merely a rich ideologue whose money helped further corrode civilized public discourse.  Another of Bush's recess appointments threatens public health protections.

The Opinion Mill:  While Islamist violence abroad is certainly dangerous, we have plenty of homegrown terrorists with light complexions and flag decals on their vehicles to worry about as well. Meanwhile, the remains of the innocents slaughtered on 9/11 have been used to fill potholes, the uniform and personal affects of US Army ranger Pat Tillman have been burned, and Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Mullah Omar are all still alive and at large.

Faithful Progressive: Was a reversed Wisconsin "corruption" case related to partisan politics at the Department of Justice?  A well-respected state senator thinks it was.

PoliBlog: More about the administration of justice under the worst administration in U.S. history.  Recently installed as US Attorney in Minneapolis, Rachel Paulose is described as a person more prone to spout Bible quotes than the law.  That figures, since she was a pal of Pat Robertson U. grad, Monica Goodling.  Yesterday, the four senior-most career figures in the office resigned in unison in order to make a point.

All Things Democrat: Nancy Pelosi and her delegation should make another high profile trip to highlight the incompetence and rigidity of the Bush Crime Family.  That trip, of course, would be to New Orleans.

Don't forget to join the Blog Against Theocracy this weekend...Sign the petition to close Gitmo...and here's a site that offers a sliver of hope
