Quick Lunchtime Update
In other good news, there's a deli downstairs where anyone who wants to can order a bespoke salad---including one with spinach as the base and fat-free vinaigrette as the dressing---and be happily filled up for under five bucks. I feel positively virtuous. This bodes well for my diet in general.
Mostly, though, I wanted to mention a few political things. First, word all around the web says that Karl Rove is likely to be indicted this week. More interestingly, ABC News is reporting that it was warned by a government official that their reporters may be targets of the government's data-mining operation---you know, that illegal one that they couldn't be bothered to take through FISA? Not because of ABC's links to terrorism, but as part of the White House's attempt to crack down on leaks! Oops! If this gets public play---and it's already on washingtonmonthly.com, talkingpointsmemo.com, and dailykos.com, in addition to ABC News---Bush's credibility and competence take another long-deserved blow. My prediction? By this time next week, his approval drops below 29%. And anyone who still thinks this is good government should raise their hands and swear on a stack of Bibles that they'd be okay giving the same amount of unrestrained power to Hilary.
By the way, if you go to washingtonmonthly.com, scroll down a little and you'll find an article that he links to which suggests that Hilary may not be the presumptive nominee, but Al Gore might. (My guess: it depends on how his movie does.)
Okay. Back to work. (I have work!)
