A round-up, of sorts.  
1. The War on Knowledge, a post over at DailyKos, discussing Bush's spin on the facts surrounding the Iran/NIE situation. I think that President Bush needs to take a peek at the word "fact" in the dictionary.

This administration's policy on Iran is getting more frightening as time goes on. When your president is clearly in denial, and presenting an interesting take on his version of the truth (see this & this) - which is eerily similar to the conversation that was going on before the US invaded Iraq - you know something is up.

I'm thinking that this will be mentioned in the State of the Union, bringing it to the forefront (second to only Iraq/The War on Terror) of Bush's foreign policy, where it will stay for the remainder of his time in Washington.

2. State Rep. Rick Noriega's Announcement Speech. Noriega filed his papers on Monday with the Texas Democratic Party, to challenge Senator John Cornyn, our junior Bush monkey senator, in 2008. I think I might be more excited about this race than the race for the White House, y'all. It's going to be an interesting election cycle for Texas.

After getting the chance to talk with Rep. Noriega earlier this semester, when the College Democrats sponsored an event in which he was the guest speaker, I think he's going to be a good, solid candidate. Then again, it might be important to note that my sock would be a better candidate than Senator Cornyn (who votes in accordance with Bush on every major issue).
