A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Throwing in the Towel 

Lisa, over at All Hat, No Cattle is considering hanging it up at the end of June. She estimates that 80% of her visitors don't donate. Like her, I get few donations. In fact, it's 5 total out of the 35,000+ who have visited my blog. There hasn't been a single donation since February of 2005. Granted, my ego is bruised but it can take it. My budget, however, cannot. The research and opinion, as well as orginal graphics, are all time consuming. When assholes like Rush or Coulter get millions to spew their hate, is it too much to ask for some modest donation. If it is, then so be it. Most of us in the liberal blogoshere find it distasteful to even mention donations, but the reality of mortgages, gas prices, and as Lisa puts, "putting food on the family" comes into play. So go visit her site as she does a fine job. Help keep her in the game.
