Seriously long read but full of interesting stuff and at least you’ll know what’s happened to the lies about those forged Niger nuclear documents and the CIA agent who was outed by someone in the White House. And if you don’t get the “Peak Oil” stuff (I only got it because I remember some news article or something recently with the oil prices skyrocketing, that there’s a time predicted to be about 20 years away when the world’s oil supply/pumping will peak relative to demand and then after that everything goes to hell). If Saudi Arabia has already peaked then the U.S. economy is in trouble and it’s time to buy a bike!

A day later, on June 4th Capitol Hill Blue took another hard shot at the administration. Titled > “Bush’s Erratic Behavior Worries White House Aides”> , the story’s first four paragraphs say everything.
President George W. Bush’s increasingly erratic behavior and wide mood swings has the halls of the West Wing buzzing lately as aides privately express growing concern over their leader’s state of mind.
In meetings with top aides and administration officials, the President goes from quoting the Bible in one breath to obscene tantrums against the media, Democrats and others that he classifies as “enemies of the state.”
Worried White House aides paint a portrait of a man on the edge, increasingly wary of those who disagree with him and paranoid of a public that no longer trusts his policies in Iraq or at home.
“It reminds me of the Nixon days,” says a longtime GOP political consultant with contacts in the White House. “Everybody is an enemy; everybody is out to get him. That’s the mood over there.”
No wonder Bush and Cheney have suddenly gone and hired criminal defense attorneys.
