My dream

Having a hard time keeping up the US Attorney Purge? Talking Points Memo has created a complete timeline.

Firedoglake speculates: Will the off-the-books email accounts used by the Rove minions attacking the US Attorneys be the Alexander Butterfield/White House taping that brings down Bush?

Swing State Project says, Farewell, Marty Meehan (D-MA, leaving Congress to head UMass Lowell) and don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out with $5,000,000 in your campaign accounts. Gee, I can't think of any candidates who could have used that money in the last election cycle, can you? The Boston Globe is encouraging Marty to donate the money to the school.

The New York Times profiles Richard F. Scruggs (or as lawyers who know him call him, Dickie Scruggs. If you've read any of those John Grisham books about oily Mississippi mass trial lawyers and Gulfstreams, I've always thought they were about Dickie.)

Kevin Drum links to an article about women "choosing" to opt out of the work force. Choice being an illusion; the modern workforce talks a good game about family friendly policies, but they're only friendly to men.

Steve Gilliard of the News Blog is still sick, still hospitalized, still needs our thoughts and prayers.
