O Mother, Where Art Thou?
Lying atop her son's grave. I'm not an expert on cemetery etiquette, but I think this pretty much crosses a few dozen lines of decency, respect, and shame. Casey Sheehan is probably spinning so fast in his grave he could be used as a power source for most of Northern California.

Blame America First Welcomes Hardball's Chris Matthews
Chris Matthews came unglued in his Hardball show yesterday while interviewing Undersecretary of State Karen Hughes. An excerpt:

Bush], the President’s. Are we sometimes to blame for the hell that we’ve raised? That`s all I`m asking. Is it always the other guys` fault, or do we do things that send signals that we are the enemy of those people?”Evidently Matthews has started moolighting for al-Jazzera.

The gauntlet has been thrown down, and so the game of political chicken has begun.
Memo to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist: Act like the majority. Make Dusty Harry and the rest of the Jackass Caucus actually stand up and filibuster this time. They want to hang themselves. Give them the rope and get out of the way.
