These things make being a liberal/progressive/Democrat/leftist all worthwhile...and just Rove's indictment can't be far behind!

Here's the Haley story in a nutshell:

WASHINGTON - A GOP telemarketing firm implicated in two criminal prosecutions involving election dirty tricks got its startup money from Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, financial records show...Barbour's investment company arranged a quarter-million-dollar loan to GOP Marketplace in 2000...The loan made Barbour and his Washington business partners part owners of the company, the incorporation papers show.

By 2002, federal court records contend, GOP Marketplace president Allen Raymond and the Alexandria, Va.-based company were carrying out political dirty tricks in New Hampshire and New Jersey.

Raymond, who once worked for Barbour at the Republican National Committee, is serving a three-month prison term after pleading guilty to arranging for hundreds of hang-up calls in New Hampshire in 2002. The calls jammed Democratic phone lines that were offering people assistance in getting to polling stations in a close U.S. Senate race.

And here's the Rush story--not much info yet, but Tom DeLay taught him how to take a mugshot photo:

UNITED 93 Whitewash

And here's where you can join the fun in pointing out the obvious about the propaganda flick "United 93" (Hat tip: Techno Slavery).
