The May 8 letter from U.S. Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., chair of the House Judiciary Committee, to George W. Bush received virtually no media coverage, in spite of the fact that it warned the president that an attack on Iran without Congressional approval would be grounds for impeachment. Rumor has it several senators have been briefed about the possibility of war with Iran.

Something is afoot.

Rumors of War: Is Bush Gearing Up to Attack Iran? Something is afoot. Just what is not clear, but recent moves by the White House strongly suggest that Bush will attack Iran in the near future.

Limbaugh: Bush donors say he’ll strike Iran before term ends.

Neo-con Daniel Pipes, a far right-wing pseudo scholar who called the NIE report on the halting of Iran’s nuclear program a “shoddy, politicized, outrageous parody of a piece of propaganda,” said he believes that President Bush will attack Iran if a Democrat wins the White House in November.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates ousted the Air Force's civilian and military chiefs Thursday, an unprecedented move that came after a classified Pentagon investigation found "a chain of failures" in the Air Force's safeguarding of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

Dear AP, if Mrs. Obama is relevant then where is the story on drug-abuser, drug-stealer, Cindy McCain?

Is McCain going to explain his recent comment that "America's seen great economic progress" in light of the facts saying otherwise? When you're living the life of Riley like McCain (he does have eight or nine houses, his wife can't remember which), perhaps you don't notice these trends. And to think he wants more of the same on the economy.

Americans $1.7 trillion poorer. Americans' net worth falls for the second straight quarter as home and stock prices decline, but it may not hurt consumer spending, experts say.

The foreclosure hammer is hitting ever harder. People lost their homes at the highest rate on record in the first three months of the year, and late payments soared to a new high, too _ an alarming sign that the housing crisis and its damage to the national economy may only get worse.

Shhhhh!!!!! Rightwing pundits don't dare mention the words "Bob Barr"!
