    What can we do to help justice take it's course and get Rove fired?

    Would any of the lawyers present care to comment on the recent indictments involving Seymour Lazar and implicating Milburg Weiss? It seems to me that this is an issue good liberals would care about, since innocent "little guys" were getting screwed by big corporate types. Instead, we hear only the sound of silence on that front. Seems odd, to say the least.

    Just Paul I would think as a certified wingnut you would want that ultra Liberal and genuine Traitor Karl Rover, Hog tied and burned alive then chopped into little pieces. Or do you consider rightwing traitors exempt from your Contempt? Only asking ;)

    ED, I wasn't aware that you were a "certified" wingnut. My condolences. But I hear it's a curable condition if you simply refrain from listening to Limbaugh more than once a day and try to stay out of the sun. Good luck with that. As for MY contempt: Perhaps it is your certified wingnuttery showing through, but I don't recall making any comments about Rove one way or the other, and, although I could be wrong, I don't believe Jeralyn has made such a prerequisite for posting a comment or two here. Sorry if my failure to defend or attack Rove has upset you in some way, but I have better things to do with my time than throw mud with the self-described wingnuts. Dadler, It's a hard story to follow, seeing as how the media doesn't seem to be paying it much attention and TalkLeft isn't saying a word about it, but Seymour Lazar and another attorney were indicted in LA last month for a long list of illegal acts concerning plaintiffs suits, kickbacks, and direct payment to those willing to serve as plaintiffs, and the New York law firm cited as a potential additional target in the indictments is said to be none other than Milberg Weiss. A few links that might offer more are here, here, and here. Any thoughts you might have on (1) why this is not a bigger story among the "progressives" who so often claim to be looking out for the little guy and (2) why TalkLeft, a blog about legal matters and injustice, hasn't even mentioned it?

    Apparently all of the suicide bombers in London were born in England though they were of Pakistani descent. London bombers 'were all British' This fact rather flies in the face of the Fox news and the O'Reilly propaganda line that the bombings were most likely attributable to lax British immigration laws. No doubt the first suicide bombers in our country will be Americans. I wonder who the right wing propaganda machine will blame then.

    Aaron, Don't blame Fox, blame British Intelligence:
    "We are convinced it is not a British-based cell," a senior Government source said.
    Besides, there is a common right-wing gripe that various countries throughout Eurpose are local Islamic terrorists with religious hate speech laws and the like.
