Mukasey's on a roll

Justice Department won't send prosecutors to polls

Another good decision out of the attorney general's office. If the Bush administration weren't ending in a few months, I'd be wondering how long before Mukasey would be booted out.

A Bushie does something right!

U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey has rejected the denial of asylum for a woman facing genital mutilation and a possible forced marriage to her cousin. I'm impressed. After the miserable term of John Ashcroft, and the even worse one of Alberto R. Gonzales, Bush's latest A-G is definite improvement.

Of course, it's all relative. He's still a conservative Republican. He's just not a knee-jerk right-wing idealogue.

Female employee: Ohh. They are so good!
Male employee: Really?
Female employee: Yeah, they're better than sex!
Male employee: Hmm. You must be doing it wrong.

I'm famous! (I'm at the end.)

An accurate quote for once. But I don't think I was somber. Maybe the reporter was only looking at my friend. And for the record, I was wearing a glittery top and a skirt, and Tawdry had on an LBD. He was right about my necklace, though. I was running late and didn't have time to find the one I really wanted to wear.
