So it seems that the gross negligence and incompetence of the Bush Administration leading up to 9/11, and of course after that terrible day as well, was even worse than we knew. Surprise, surprise.

Simply Left Behind: Looking back at 9/11, how fragile we are.

Outside the Beltway: Sacrificing civil liberties, 9/11's irreversible legacy of fear.

Kiko's House: Why Republicans are shamelessly playing the race card.

Ramona's Voices: Connie Schultz on what it means for women to vote.

Plus, some thoughts on the Republican politics of vilification, this week directed at America's Khmer Rouge, those greedy, good-for-nothin', Obama-lovin' public-school teachers poisoning our (non-rich, non-charter) children with moral degradation. (Isn't that what you're saying, Mitt et al.?)

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction (@mjwstickings). I'll be here all week.
