Sucker Posse Rides Again! 

There's a new mangler... i mean lawman!, heh... lawman, in town. Deputy DiFi and Hop-a-long Chuck help pin a badge on the new sheriff.

For the record:
On an 11-8 vote, with two Democrats joining all nine Republicans, the committee sent President George W. Bush's nomination of Mukasey to the full Democratic-led Senate for virtually assured confirmation. The vote could come late this week.


The two committee Democrats who voted for Mukasey were Charles Schumer of New York, who had suggested Bush nominate him as attorney general, and Dianne Feinstein of California.

Eveyone sing-along with the Sucker Posse: Yooo can trust the bar to the man who wears the star... the big bright TortureCo star!

In the full Senate, all 49 Republicans and at least half of the 51-member Democratic caucus are expected to vote for him, Democratic party aides said.

Mangler Mukasey will face a high-noon full Senate showdown vote sometime next week [!]; where it is expected he will be presented with a pair of shiny new jingle bobs, two ivory handled Colt-45s, and enough hoolihan loop to corral Patrick Leahy. Following the Senate roundup - including the usual glad-handing and flowery extolments on the value of civility and bi-partisan leadership - reverent whoopty-doos to freedom and justice and D-Mocracy and Jesus Christ and so forth... General Mukasey will be vaulted into his freshly oiled saddle by the Village idiots and posed for the benefit of the townsfolk against the backdrop of a glorious new unspoiled horizon.

Following that, eveyone is invited to ride out to the edge of town to help bust up the Ron Paul gang's 2 million dollar molasses and moonshine still. Maybe simulate a good old timeylike stockwhippin' on a couple sinister lookin' strangers along the road too. Just for the God-fearin' simulated hell of it. Or whatever...


[!] Mukasey confirmation vote (Nov 08, 11:30pm):
yes - 53
No - 40

Commander Make Believe's wild slide 

ABC News/Washington Post Poll. Oct. 29 - Nov. 1, 2007

"Thinking ahead to November 2008, which of these two statements comes closest to your own views? After eight years of George W. Bush, we need to elect a president who can set the nation in a new direction. OR, We need to keep the country moving in the direction Bush has been taking us."

New Direction - 75%
Bush Direction - 23%

Polling Report


Meanwhile, on the GOP crime blotter beat...

"all he needs now is to buy the gun that shoots him in the foot."

Is there a podiatrist in the house!!! ABC News:
Nov. 4, 2007

Since March, Philip J. Martin has traveled around the country on behalf of GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson, flying the former senator to events and working to raise more than $6 million for Thompson's campaign.

In the 30 years prior, Martin raised hell, according to public records and numerous lawsuits reviewed by ABC News, as a bookie, drug dealer and accused double-dealer.

Police files show Martin was convicted of or pleaded guilty to multiple felonies in the 1970s and 80s and started and folded dozens of businesses in the 1990s. More recently, former investors have been chasing millions they say they are owed by Martin's former companies.

A longtime friend of Thompson's, Martin helped raise money for both of the candidate's Senate bids.

Thus, a new episode of Law and Order writes itself.

And now, for something completely differentia:
