Turned the corner, turned the corner, turned the corner, turned the....

So in fact Tom Ridge just scared the orange juice out of NY, NJ & DC based on information that is 3 years old. Somewhere in a cave, Osama bin Laden is laughing his ass off. Shrub, however, demonstrating the irrefutable logic that only his razor-sharp mind could bring to this matter, said today, "It’s serious business. I mean, we wouldn’t be, you know, contacting authorities at the local level unless something was real." See, that proves it.

Well, according to the Daily Show, in recent days Bush has said that "we have turned the corner" 23 times in 5 speeches. So maybe he’s just dizzy from going around in circles.

Speaking of the Daily Show, the guest today was Rep Henry Bonilla, and Jon went after him like I haven’t seen since the Spice Girls were on. Bonilla started by saying that he hadn’t watched the show, which may be why he didn’t realize he was repeating every "talking point" dissected in the famous talking points episode (transcript here).
Jon kept repeating innocent questions (Who is it who compiled the figures proving Kerry to be the most liberal senator?), drawing him further and further out, then springing the trap on him. Glorious; catch the repeat if you missed it.
