"What was Trent Lott doing up there in front of
the world, as master of ceremonies for
Bush's inauguration. This is the one day that
America really needs to show its best face
-- not its "blackface"... Bush's best line
of the day was when he said "our country must
abandon all the habits of racism, because we
cannot carry the message of freedom and
the baggage of bigotry at the same time." And
yet he allowed himself to be introduced
by a 5-piece Samsonite set of bigotry. Talk
about undercutting one's message."

Unit Expands Rumsfeld's Domain
The Pentagon, expanding into the CIA's historic
bailiwick, has created a new espionage arm and is
reinterpreting U.S. law to give Rumsfeld broad
authority over clandestine operations abroad.
The previously undisclosed organization, called
the Strategic Support Branch, arose from Rumsfeld's
written order to end his "near total dependence
on CIA" for what is known as human intelligence.
Designed to operate without detection and under
the defense secretary's direct control, the Strategic
Support Branch deploys small teams of case officers,
linguists, interrogators and technical specialists
alongside newly empowered special operations forces."

'Riot' Squad: Where Are They Now?

As we begin the second Bush administration,
let's take a moment to reflect upon one of
the most historic episodes of the 2000 battle for
the White House -- the now-legendary
"Brooks Brothers Riot" at the Miami-Dade County polling
This was when dozens of "local protesters," actually
mostly Republican House aides from
Washington, chanted "Stop the fraud!" and "Let
us in!" when the local election board tried to
move the re-counting from an open conference
room to a smaller space.
With help from their GOP colleagues and others,
we identified some of these Republican
heroes of yore in a photo of the event.
No. 1. Tom Pyle, who had worked for Rep. Tom
DeLay (R-Tex.), went private sector
a few months later, getting a job as director of
federal affairs for Koch Industries.
No. 7. Roger Morse, another House aide, moved
on to the law and lobbying firm
Preston Gates Ellis & Rouvelas Meeds. "I was
also privileged to lead a team of Republicans
to Florida to help in the recount fight," he told
a legal trade magazine in a 2003 interview.
No. 8. Duane Gibson, an aide on the House Resources
Committee, was a solo lobbyist and
with the Greenberg Traurig lobby operation. He
is now with the Livingston Group as a consultant.
While Al Gore was begging Democrats to stay
away, the GOP was flying dozens of scumbags
to Florida so they could threaten a riot that shut
down the counting of the votes.

two loving flower children sharing their wedding on television.
And how un-Fox-like: no one was shamed to the point
of becoming suicidal, no one was forced to eat cow eyeballs
or swim through a cesspool, and they didn't follow
the couple into the honeymoon suite so we could watch them
screw under the bedspread through a green "night

a Golden Age. Bonanza, Carson, Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In,
