Not to overshadow the great victories for Democrats in Pocatello, the entire state, and even throughout the country...I just wanted to mention this developing story about supposed CIA "secret prisons" for terrorists. The Bush administration, with approval ratings around 37%, can't possibly afford another blow right now. (Ironically, I believe that's what they said about the Nixon administration right before the Watergate break-in.)
If the CIA does in fact have these secret prisons the Bush administration is going to have to take the heat instead of pointing fingers elsewhere. The executive branch can't point its finger at executive agencies (ex. the CIA, FEMA, etc.) without taking a bit of the blame.
Neo-conservatives and the evangelical right wouldn't stand for Ms. Miers, neo-cons and the Republican leadership under direction from Denny Hastert won't stand for secret prisons, what's next? It's time to start listening to the base, Mr. Bush. Your village called, their idiot is missing.
