My breaking news alerts today...

U.S. military to close Abu Ghraib prison and transfer prisoners to other jails in Iraq, CNN confirms.

Dubai-owned company has decided to transfer fully the U.S. operation of P&O ports in North America to a U.S. entity, according to Sen. John Warner.

--------------------------------

Which made me think...

God, I am going to miss Warner when he retires. I am already dreading the day in much the same way I dreaded the retirement of O'Connor from the court. Why do all the decent, thinking conservatives want to leave Washington and their damn fine reputations to the neo-cons who want to take away all of our rights? Why? Someone explain that to me... because frankly, I just don't get it. The Republican party is supposed to be about less government and less interference in our daily lives. What happened to that? Where the fuck is my Republican party?

Thanks for the link. I am so infuriated with the whole thing sometimes I just want to scream.

I breathe a sigh of relief every time I see Jim Kolbe's name in an article because it means that the reporter cares enough to hear from someone who is informed and logical. And then I tense up again because no one except the reporters and his constituents seem to listen to him.

There are days I'd move to Arizona just to help keep him in office.

I think most days I'm ashamed to admit I'm a Republican. Nothing is going how it should in that party. *sigh* We need serious reforms.
