Limbaugh lie of the Day 11/17/06
Author: George Grapman Date: Nov 17, 2006 17:10
Says Murtha did not take his defeat well. Then proceeds to play an
audio of Murtha with gracious comments. The only ungracious parts are
the words Limbaugh inserts after each Murtha comment.
November 17, 2006
RUSH: Jack Murtha, he did not take his defeat with grace yesterday,
ladies and gentlemen. This is after the Democrats voted on their new
leaders and they all came out of there with those phony smiles on their
face. This is the loser, Murtha.
MURTHA: I didn't have enough votes. And so I'll go back to my small
subcommittee that I have on appropriations.
HOYER: Half the budget.
MURTHA: Yeah. But I appreciate -- and I said inside that I worked
passionately all over the country trying to change the direction of the
country and I think I played a big role in that.
RUSH: And I got screwed.

Democrats to focus trade policy on U.S. jobs and workers
By Kevin G. Hall and Margaret Talev
The American worker, not Corporate America, will be the central focus
of U.S. trade policy as far as the new Democratic majority of Congress
That's no surprise, but it's a big shift.
Since World War II, U.S. trade policy has sought to open markets to
American exports through free-trade deals with countries large and
That's made less expensive electronics, apparel and other foreign-made
goods increasingly available to U.S. consumers.
But it's also cost a growing number of American workers jobs, pay
increases and pensions.

1 Shot in Connecticut amid PlayStation Mayhem
By STEVE FEICA, Associated Press Writer
56 minutes ago (Friday November 17, 2006)
HARTFORD, Conn. - Two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people
waiting for the new PlayStation 3 game system to go on sale early Friday
and shot one man who refused to give up his money, authorities said.
In Sullivan, Ind., a man was in critical condition after emergency surgery
for a stab wound after he and a friend tried to rob two men of consoles
they waited 36 hours in line to buy, police said.
Nationwide, short supplies of the PS3 and strong demand led to long lines
of buyers, some waiting for days outside stores.
Once the doors opened Friday, they pushed and shoved their way to
the shelves in several cities to get at the limited supply.

From The Associated Press, 11/17/06:
Safavian to remain free pending appeal
By Matt Apuzzo
A former Bush administration official facing an 18-month prison
sentence in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal will remain free while
he appeals his conviction.
David Safavian, the former chief of staff for the General Services
Administration, was sentenced last month on obstruction and
concealment charges for lying to investigators about his relationship
U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman agreed to put that sentence on
hold until an appeals court can take up the case.
Abramoff, the once-powerful lobbyist, reported to prison this week to
begin his own sentence for a fraudulent Florida casino deal.
He is also cooperating in a public corruption investigation that has
shaken Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House.

Good question. I don't think anyone was keeping the peace.
Historically the sunnis and shias never fought each other in Iraq.
Between 1920 and 1990 the Sunnis and Shias fought side by side

GOP Chooses Boehner As Minority Leader
By ANDREW TAYLOR
Friday, November 17, 2006
Cast into the minority by an angry electorate, House Republicans chose
Rep. John Boehner of Ohio on Friday to lead a return to power as
quickly as possible. "We're going to earn our way back into the
majority," he vowed.
Blunt, Boehner Share Broad Network of Lobbyist Ties With DeLay
Boehner Passed Out Checks from Tobacco PACs to Members on the House
Floor. In 1995, Boehner distributed six checks from tobacco PACs to
members on the House floor. When asked why he did it, a staffer
responded, "The floor is where the members meet with each other."
