Think Progress - another JAG resigns rather than enable Bush's torturing, and pens a scathing letter explaining his resignation.

Steve Benen guesting at Political Animal notes that the reasoning behind the CIA's decision to record interrogations on video, stop recording interrogations on video, and destroy the interrogation videos was all exactly the same.

Slate - The Bush Administration's Top 10 Stupidest Legal Arguments of 2007. But the author missed the over-arching dumbest of all "if the President says it's legal then it is."

Ali Eteraz says the GOP has a problem with Muslims. No Duh! But Ali goes on to give the institutional bigots of the Right a lesson in nomenclature they will doubtless ignore. Cowboys know the only good Injun is a dead Injun.

The Crone Speaks about picking electability over issues.
