Blogito ergo sum.

So it MUST be true.
The National Enquirer recently reported that President Bush is drinking again.

“When the levees broke in New Orleans, it apparently made him reach for a shot,” said one insider. “He poured himself a Texas-sized shot of straight whiskey and tossed it back. The First Lady was shocked and shouted: ‘Stop George!’

"Laura gave him an ultimatum before, ‘It's Jim Beam or me.’ She doesn't want to replay that nightmare — especially now when it's such tough going for her husband."

Job hunting?
Reuters reports that Al Qaeda is looking for somebody to help with its Web and video content. No health benefits, but you are guaranteed a gaggle of virgins when you die.

Lost n’ found
Karl Rove’s people have found an e-mail from 2003 that he hopes will clear things up for special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. Judith Miller has found an old notebook from 2003 that she hopes will clear things up for special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

Scooter, lovestruck.
In a later dated September 15, 2005, in which he told Judith Miller that he was waiving confidentiality, he wrote, “You will have stories to cover – Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out West, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work – and life.”

DailyKos speculates that might “:…be a veiled threat, a reference to cooking up more stories on Iran's 'WMD', or an invocation of some other VRWC. Does this have to do with the Aspen Institute, as some have said? Or with the recent meeting in Aspen discussed by Novak (in which Rove and Wolfowitz were in attendance...)?”

Earlier he had written: “I'm sorry that I can't crack the code -- but it's almost certainly there. All that talk about aspens and roots.”

I think not. I think it’s the letter of a man in love. A cri de couer.

Because they can….
From DISCOVERY, “Scientists have taught dolphins to combine both rhythm and vocalisations to produce music, resulting in an extremely high-pitched, short version of the Batman theme song.”

Pundit Race.
In case you didn’t know, the New York Times now charges readers on-line to read their most popular pundits. The new scheme is called Times Select, and it has been the cause of much grumbling.

From the New York Observer, here is the latest status of the op-eddies on the Most E-Mailed List. Maureen Dowd and Franck Rich are tied for first place, with Bob Herbert next, then Thomas Friedman, and finally David Brooks, Paul Krugman, John Tierney, and Nicholas Kristof in a dead heat, more or less, for last.

It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information.
