    & while we're at it, a REAL Presidential Medal of Freedom to Saint Stephen for 'spinefulness'; with matchin' ones for Paul Krugman, David Brock (, Randi Rhodes, Al Franken and hey check out Frank Rich's great op-ed in today's nytimes "Bush of a Thousand Days".

    "Like the hand that suddenly pops out of the grave at the end of "Carrie", the past keeps coming back to haunt the Bush White House."

    ...  "The demons that keep rising up from the past to grab Mr. Bush are the fictional W.M.D. he wielded to take us into Iraq. They stalk him as relentlessly as Banquo's ghost did Macbeth. From that original sin, all else flows. Mr. Rove wouldn't be in jeopardy if the White House hadn't hatched a clumsy plot to cover up its fictions. Mr. Bush's poll numbers wouldn't be in the toilet if American blood was not being spilled daily because of his fictions. By recruiting a practiced Fox News performer to better spin this history, the White House reveals that it has learned nothing. Made-for-TV propaganda propelled the Bush presidency into its quagmire in the first place. At this late date only the truth, the whole truth and nothing but, can set it free."

    In an ideal world, a medal for Frank Rich too.
