No comment needed

Gore Derangement Syndrome, by Paul Krugman.
What is it about Mr. Gore that drives right-wingers insane?
Partly it’s a reaction to what happened in 2000, when the American people chose Mr. Gore but his opponent somehow ended up in the White House.
...The worst thing about Mr. Gore, from the conservative point of view, is that he keeps being right.

Also in the New York Times, from John Burns: What Cats Know About War on cats in Iraq:
Mongrels though they are, our Baghdad cats, we learned from a recent study in the journal Science, have a noble lineage of their own — as inheritors of the same terrain occupied by the felines that were the forebears of all domestic cats, wild families that lived along the banks of the Tigris and Euphrates more than 10,000 years ago.

In Salon, Joe Conason writes about the scariest part of Wesley Clark's new memoir:
"Seven countries in five years":
While the Bush White House promotes the possibility of armed conflict with Iran, a tantalizing passage in Wesley Clark's new memoir suggests that another war is part of a long-planned Department of Defense strategy that anticipated "regime change" by force in no fewer than seven Mideast states.
