There seems to be some controversy about the Capital Hill Blue story about Bush being in meetings where the bad uranium information was discussed. Tom Tomorrow has details here.

Kip, bless him, said something like this might happen.

CNN replayed the shoe walk-on several times. Mr. Carlson, who called the book "kind of dopey, kind of Midwestern-fifth-grade-girl-scout-leader," said he was impressed with Mrs. Clinton in person.

"I'm easily charmed in general and I'm particularly won over by witty inscriptions, and she had a good inscription," he said. "If Pol Pot came on the show and was charming and witty and good humored and had a good inscription, I'd say, `Well, Pol Pot, charming guy.' "

He said the camera operators ate as much of the shoe cake as they could, and he himself enjoyed a generous portion ("It was excellent"), before they sent the rest to a nearby homeless shelter.

Mrs. Clinton did not have any cake. "The moral here?" Mr. Carlson said. "Mrs. Clinton has self-control."

You know, I would have thought it unkind to say that about Tucker Carlson.

Scott McClellan can seem effortlessly funny, as when the new presidential press secretary told reporters: "I look forward to working with the White House press corps -- at least most of you, anyway."

What the assembled journalists didn't know was that McClellan had tried out the line on several White House aides beforehand, asking if they thought it went too far...

All that slapping is hard on the knees.

in Bushisms:

"It's very interesting when you think about it, the slaves who left here to go to America, because of their steadfast and their religion and their belief in freedom, helped change America."ÑDakar, Senegal, July 8, 2003

I discover that I am unemployed.

This may lead to a fierce spate of blogging, or it may lead to a temporary layoff.

Life is incalculable sometimes.
