Seeing as Camp David has now taken on new importance
for President Bush [NYTimes link], now might be a fun time to take a tour
(sort-of) of the highly secretive
compound. Or perhaps you would like a more detailed history
of the Presidential retreat, or even some personal stories
as told by people "in the know." (Though for the life of me I can't find more info on the person who developed these sites.)

Bush's bullhorn speech
The most genuine public show of emotion I think I've seen from the president. There has been a lot of criticism of his cue-card reading, but to me this was a refreshing change!

More info leaked
on the reasoning behind the claims that the President was specifically targeted on Tuesday. Seems to raise a lot more questions than it answers, to me.

john cusack for president Why Shouldn't John Cusack be President?
He made the tough decisions in Grosse Pointe Blank.
He couldn't be bought in Eight Men Out.
He's cooler than John Malkovich
And we like his politics so far.

Oz Revealed: The man behind President Bush.
"Under [Karl] Rove's guidance, Bush has unrolled initiatives based on his campaign promises, according to a preconceived schedule with virtually no negotiation or modification. Critics say such unilateral actions will backfire and are not conducive to results."

It t'was foretold by the ancients!
"Come the millennium, month twelve,
In the home of the greatest power,
The village idiot will come forth
To be acclaimed the leader."
- Nostradamus 
I consider myself someone with mental fortitude. I consider myself not given to listen to foolish ramblings of portents. But in this case I must concede!

Clinton stressed that most of the people he would pardon have long since paid their debt to society and that the main intent of his executive action was to lift restrictions on voting and employment.
That explains why Patti Hearst and the presidents brother gets one, and Leonard Peltier does not. I guess Bill know which side his is buttered on, and realizes he is going to be spending way more time with the FBI than with Indians in the coming years.
Who else should have been pardoned? Who should not have?

The best president you'll never have, Martin Sheen of The West Wing
, has some interesting things to say about George W. Bush's alcoholism
Sayeth Sheen: "When it was revealed that he had a DWI [a charge of driving while impaired], he said he kept it a secret because he didn't want his daughters to know. That is so much horseshit… In the [twelve step] program, we say very clearly: The only things that hurt us are our secrets... I don't go after him because I think he lacks character. It's obvious to me how little character he possesses."

Bill clinton hangs out with Esquire
The cover of the new Esquire had all the right-wing goofballs up in arms on Politically Incorrect tonight. Personally I don't see anything wrong with it, but then I am not want to spend $60 million looking for something dirty in everything the President does.
Where can I get this as a poster?

A bizarre side of the Clinton presidency.
It seems that during the White House Correspondents dinner the Clinton camp displayed a short comedy movie called 'The Final Days'. I saw a few snippets on Britan's Channel 5 and was SHOCKED. I just didn't belive it... As I watched it I felt like I was watching a skit on Leno. Mind-boggling.
