The DAYS DAILY 5
A daily merry-go-round of crap from around the cyberwebs.
1. Ribbit! David Shuster says he is "convinced Karl Rove will be indicted." Shuster's been on this story from the get, so he probably has a better idea than just about anyone save for Murray Waas and Patrick Fitzgerald, so, uh, yay!. "Oh when the frogs, go marching in..." (video at C&L)
2. ThinkProgress: A Dusty, a Duke and a guy named Nine Fingers. What is wrong with these people? Honestly, hookers, limos, graft and a collection of bumbling bureacrats who sound like they just walked out of a Dick Tracy strip? Is this even real? Can we just impeach everyone in Washington and start over?

3. Molly Ivins weighs in on Hookergate: "I don’t care who anyone in politics is screwing in private, as long as they’re not screwing the public."
4. Worker 3116: "We are going to smoke the terrorists out of their fortresses of solitude."
5. Flotsam: Too bad this poor actor will suffer some horrible death for what looks like such a crap movie. Oh well, check out FreeWilliamsburg's summer movie preview for more crappy films (and a few good ones).

ON THIS DAY: In 1671
Thomas Blood disguised as a clergyman, attempts to steal the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London. He is immediately caught because he is too drunk to run with the loot. He is later condemned to death and then mysteriously pardoned and exiled by King Charles II. Doesn't this sound like something that could happen in modern-day DC? I mean, no hookers, but still.

Oh, also on this day, in 1974,
impeachment hearings against Richard Nixon began. If only history would repeat itself, and fast.

Great Roundup, as usual. Such a talent. Jon Stewart, eat youe heart out!
