Enjoyed Maureen Dowd's NYT column today - nothing particularly new but it does I think help to be reminded of the broader ridiculousness and evilness of the current administration rather than getting bogged down with spitting and pissing about the stupid thing of the minute. A sample:

In Bushworld, it's fine to take $700 million that Congress provided for the war in Afghanistan and 9/11 recovery and divert it to the war in Iraq that you're insisting you're not planning.

In Bushworld, it's O.K. to run for re-election as the avenger of 9/11, even as you make secret deals with the Arab kingdom where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from.

In Bushworld, you get to strut around like a tough military guy and paint your rival as a chicken hawk, even though he's the one who won medals in combat and was praised by his superior officers for fulfilling all his obligations.

One of those clip 'n' save columns to pull out when you want to decide which Bushism to be angry about that day.
