Cue Antibalas:


Over on Truthout, I hear we're getting a bonus Fitzmas:

Luskin was informed via a target letter that Fitzgerald is prepared to charge Rove for perjury and lying to investigators during Rove’s appearances before the grand jury in 2004 and in interviews with investigators in 2003 when he was asked how and when he discovered that Valerie Plame Wilson worked for the CIA, and whether he shared that information with the media.

If the grand jury returns an indictment Rove would become the second White House official - and one of the most powerful political operatives in the country - charged in the case since the leak investigation began in the fall of 2003.

Wow. This is just one of a slew of crazy things going on with the Repugnantans. I mean, I can't keep up. Bush's approval rating is at freezing, Duke Cunningham and other Repugs were getting bribed with hookers by a defense contractor, there's just so much.

And if you're the kind of person that likes to match the misfortune of the bad guys with positive action to make a difference, this is the weekend for you!

Tomorrow, join thousands in the march against the Iraq War here in NYC.
Sunday, join thousands in a rally to stop the genocide in Darfur.

According to, the roots of this conflict happened in the beginning of 2003, and the brokered peace broke down and the atrocities have been going on,for nearly three years. Hmm, nearly three years. So that means, that roughly around the time Chucklenutz was having his top gun moment, genocide was exploding in Sudan. And to think, those hundreds of billions of dollars, what could we have done with them... now, not only to we have the actual damage that has been done in Iraq, but we have the damage done by our failure and inability to act in Sudan.

And after being worried for several weeks about this rally not being as effective as it could be, the speaker list now shows a lot more diversity than it did as recent as a week ago, with the important additions of Senator Barack Obama, Former Delegate and SCLC Washington bureau director Rev. Walter Fauntroy, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Kwesi Mfume (former CEO of the NAACP). I hope this is a sign that real outreach is happening to communities outside of the Jewish world. I'm still surprised as hell that Fearless Leader didn't know about the DC rally as of 3/31. Anyway, get to both of those.
