Newsie’s Week in Reviewsies: Rove Lies; Bush & Cronies’ Betrayal of Trust

This regular meta-diary focuses on the best overlooked diaries (didn’t get front-paged or on to the recommended list) from the past week; it was once called “Week’s Best Diaries You Didn’t Read.” This column also includes information from elsewhere in cyberspace, blogosphere PSAs, and my own commentary. Diaries are listed because:

  1. they’re fabulously written & have SUBSTANCE
  2. they’ll educate you on candidates and states.  
  3. newsworthy items that got lost in the mix
  4. there was research involved (copyright rules must be followed)

Please add to the list in the replies or email me links you’d like to see included. For previous editions, search my diaries for them.  Consider subscribing to my diaries if you never want to miss an edition. Opinions expressed in the links are not endorsed by me. Archives are here as well.

Rove’s pathetic comments (projecting much?) regarding 9/11 got so much coverage. I’m not going to post many links here re: the Bush & Cronies bullshitting on this issue, because it’s gotten extensive coverage elsewhere. I have two slogans and themes that the Democrats should try to work in for 2006: “Actions, Not Words” and “Betrayal of Trust.”

From elsewhere around the blogosphere. Items (copied, pasted or reworded) from various sources or compiled by me; some commentary is mine.
