Frameshop: Steal the Ball

When Republicans talk, Democrats listen and respond.  When Democrats talk, Republicans steal the ball and run for the basket.

Frameshop: My Left Wing

Maryscott O'Connor, the most passionate progressive blogger around, has just launched a new site called My Left Wing.  It's well worth checking out.  Maryscott is famous for pairing no-holds-barred commentary with signature animations (see above).

Most of the writers you see over there are well known to readers of Frameshop and the DailyKos. But the community will grow fast.  I plan to make it part of my daily routine.

Congratulations on your launch, Maryscott!

Frameshop: He's At It Again

Isn't it amazing?  Even though his entire Presidency--the entire security of our nation--is at risk from the fallout over President Bush's last political smear campaign, that does not seem to matter.

Frameshop: Hurry, Hurry

Frameshop: President's Privilege

Just like the Watergate scandal for Richard Nixon, the Leakgate scandal has revealed how George W. Bush understands the relationship between a President and the law.

George W. Bush, like Richard Nixon before him, believes in the "President's Privilege" to choose how to follow the law.  Americans thought we had moved past the problem of President's Privilege, but it looks like it has comeback with a vengeance.

Frameshop: Missing Press Transcript Points to Fleischer

Based on a strange sequence of events in July 2003 and a mysterious missing press gaggle transcript, it seems likely that former Press Secretary Ari Fleischer is the another "leaker" in the current White House scandal.

Frameshop: One Week in July

On the same day that Ari Fleischer resigned as White House Press Secretary (July 14, 2003), Robert Novak published "Mission to Niger" in which he revealed the name of top secret CIA agent.  At this point, the controversy over Joe Wilson's no-yellow-cake-in-Iraq Op-Ed was raging. Just the day before (July 13, 2004), Ari Fleisher had completely flipped his lid, saying that the "flap" over the Wilson piece was just a "bunch of bull," an incident so embarrassing to the White House that every record of it's existence has been removed from their website.
