The House will vote shortly on Bush's FISA Bill.
Word is that the House will cave in just like the Senate, but it ain't over till it's over.

Just for a reference you may wish to read our Constitution. I wonder how many of our Congressman have read it and understand it.
Voting for this Bill , gives "approval" to Bush's impeachable offenses. Even if it needs to be re-authorized in six months.
WaPo has an excellent timeline
of Libby's role in the CIA leak case.
In February 2002 the CIA sent Wilson to Niger to investigate the report that Iraq tried to buy "yellowcake" uranium from Niger for nuclear weapons.
In March 2002 Wilson briefed the CIA on his findings. The agency sent a memo to the White House.
On Jan 28 2003 Bush gave his State of the Union address and included the famous 16 words
"The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of Uranium from Africa"
While Bush was on vacation and having fun at birthday parties ect, people trying to walk out of the city were shot at, to keep them from crossing the bridge to safety into their suburban towns. This is what happens when there is no national leadership in a national emergency.
Kevin Drum at Washington Monthly has an excellent article posted today asking why people from New Orleans were stopped from crossing some bridges out.

For the past couple of days I've vaguely noticed some stories circulating about police preventing people from leaving New Orleans after Katrina hit, but there have been so many urban legendish anecdotes like this making the rounds that I didn't pay much attention to it.

This report was on the ABC Evening New tonight and is also frontpaged on their website. I happened to watch this report tonight and it made my blood boil. How could this be reported without gagging.
They have blantantly followed Rove's talking points. Below is the same story as frontpaged on their site. This is what millions of people see every night. Not everyone is reading dkos.
From the New York TImes comes this article-

I haven't been reading the NYTimes in the last few years because of their poor front page coverage, but caught this link over at Rawstory.
During Bill Clinton's eight years the worst the Republicans could dish out on him was his relationship with Monica. Below is a list of actual scandals that happened during Bush's first term. Imagine if Bush was investigated the way Clinton was. There is no question that many more scandals would emerge. That is not to count Bush's scandals before he was selected.
I am glad that the RWCM is thoroughly investigating Bush's record. Of course thats what they are paid to do<snark>.

I am crossing my fingers today that at least one Senator will stand up for democracy and contest the election. I am sure you have received many phone calls from pronin2 and company, read the excellent diary's here at kos covering the election irregularities and have read Conyers Report Preserving Democracy - What Went Wrong in Ohio
