There's so much going on, I can't decide which story not to cover next.
Both of the so-called "liberal feminist bloggers" hired by John Edwards to blog for his campaign, and kept on by him after some wingnut attacks, have resigned their positions following even more attacks. FOX News is having fun with the story:
Catholic Leader Urges John Edwards to Fire Second Blogger After One Quits

In the alleged kidnapping / beheading plot which we mentioned las week, six of the nine men arrested in Britain last week have been charged, and the other three have been released. I hope to have more details and some analysis later ... but not too much later.
Pro-war propaganda concerning Iran has been skyrocketing lately. Um. Pardon the expression. Larisa's blog has had some really good coverage of this aspect of the current SNAFU -- here's her latest.
I've noticed a recent agreement whereby North Korea will supposedly, eventually, desist from the deveopment of nuclear arms ... is that too good to be true? And suppose they say "Look, ma: No weapons. Honest!" ... How would we know whether they were telling us the truth or not? Stay tuned.
There's been a bit of a dust-up between Australian Prime Minister John Howard and Senator Barack Obama, which began when Howard said a few ignorant things about what would happen if Obama became president. Had Obama been following news from Australia closely, he would have known that saying offensive and ignorant things is about the only thing Howard does really well, and like all politicians, he plays from his strong suit as often as possible. I hope to have more to say about this later as time permits.
But I'm working on yet another story ...
