A daily round-up of what's buzzing 'round the Interwebs.

1. Rolling Stone: The Worst President Ever? (Well, yeah. Duh. And who cares if they ripped off an '04 Voice cover, it's just nice to see this shit in mass circulation finally.)
2. Taylor at FDL: And what about Rove? (Think the latest shake-up strips away some of Turd Blossom's power? Better think again.)
3. Pandagon and Digby offer their opinion on Purity Balls. To sum up, "Ewwwwwwwww, just ewwww."
4. Rep. Emerson (R-Mo) is 'puzzled' how the post-script "you're an asshole" ended up on an otherwise cordial letter to one of her constituents. The AP story begins "Nobody expects to get a letter from a member of Congress that ends with an expletive." That's true, those letters typically come from the Vice President.
5. The General has a few thoughts on Scotty's replacement: "All the most loyal candidates are busy avoiding indictments or surfing teenspace.com in the hopes of hooking up during the next Homeland Security drill."

ON THIS DAY: In 2004, President Bush had this to say about wiretapping: "Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires -- a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. (LIE!) When we're talking about chasing down terrorists, we're talking about getting a court order before we do so. (LIE!) It's important for our fellow citizens to understand, when you think Patriot Act, constitutional guarantees are in place when it comes to doing what is necessary to protect our homeland, because we value the Constitution. (LIE!)" ITMFA!

Also on this day, in 1653, Oliver Cromwell dissolved the Rump Parliament. I don't really know what this is, I just really, really wanted to type 'Rump Parliament'.
