In da House.

I'm back in the house. I'll have some extended stuff coming down about a book I just finished that really kicked me in the pants. For now, marvel at two things:

Tom Delay's (admittedly fake) myspace page. Note especially the message from Jesus.

This quote from Donald Rumsfeld. He's actually in charge of our military, in case you didn't know.
The topic was the largest defense procurement scandal in recent decades, and the two investigators for the Pentagon's inspector general in Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld's office on April 1, 2005, asked the secretary to raise his hand and swear to tell the truth.

Rumsfeld agreed but complained. "I find it strange," he said to the investigators, on the grounds that as a government official "the laws apply to me" anyway.
I find it strange too. I guess it's just one of those things that's true about officials in a democracy rather than say, kings and feudal lords. It's weird, I know.
