Another White House Liar?


He has been hailed as the best White House speechwriter since Theodore Sorensen, the muse behind President Bush's most famous phrases, the moral conscience of the West Wing. But Michael Gerson now is accused by a former colleague of taking credit for words he did not write.

According to Matthew Scully, who worked with him for five years, Gerson is not the bard of Bushworld, but a "self-publicizing" glory hog guilty of "foolish vanity," "sheer pettiness" and "credit hounding."

French President's Wife


Mrs. Sarkozy was photographed walking with two friends in town, after a day earlier turning down an invitation for a hot dog and hamburger picnic with the US president and his family at the Bush retreat in nearby Kennebunkport, Maine.

Cecilia telephoned Laura Bush about an hour before lunch to explain she had a throat ailment and that she and her children would not be able to make the gathering, touted as a rapport-building casual lunch between Nicolas Sarkozy and George W. Bush.



Rove Subpoena Update


“Earlier this month, Karl Rove failed to comply with the Judiciary Committee's subpoena to testify about the mass firings of United States Attorneys. Despite evidence that he played a central role in these firings, just as he did in the Libby case involving the outing of an undercover CIA agent and improper political briefings at over 20 government agencies, Mr. Rove acted as if he was above the law. That is wrong. Now that he is leaving the White House while under subpoena, I continue to ask what Mr. Rove and others at the White House are so desperate to hide. Mr. Rove’s apparent attempts to manipulate elections and push out prosecutors citing bogus claims of voter fraud shows corruption of federal law enforcement for partisan political purposes, and the Senate Judiciary Committee will continue its investigation into this serious issue."
