...And what a week it was: The story that would not be ignored, the story that would not die, became a very big deal as the I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby CIA Leak trail finally drew to a close. But it ain't over yet! The Oversight and Accountability portion of our program is just beginning. Be sure to stay tuned to Special Correspondent Margie Burns's in-depth analysis, exclusively for BRAD BLOG readers.

Plus there were oodles of opportunities to contemplate free speech and the First Amendment, courtesy of a judge in Kansas (what is the matter with Kansas, anyway?) and the ongoing fall-out from the "F-bomb" dropped by that sad clown of rightwing "comedy," Ann Coulter. Apparently impeachment is back on the table, and now a safe word for even a Republican to say out loud! That's free speech in action, folks! And.... oh, yeah --- a computer security scientist told the Senate some very not-nice things about those electronic touch-screen voting machines...do ya think they'll listen?
