Enjoy This Beautiful Day

Today might be the best single day for our our country since the Chimp seized power in a Supreme Court mandated coup d'etat in 2000.

This morning's first bit of good news: the new Pew Research Center poll continues to reflect our dishonest president's plummeting standings with the American people. He's falling fast and down to 42% of the public approving of his job performance. The sizzling sound you're hearing is his "mandate" frying in the depths of hell. Watch for his bootlicking congressional rats to start to desert the sinking ship, leaving his legislative agenda - including draining Social Security into the pockets of Wall Street investment bankers - in tatters. It's delightful to see Bush reduced to lame duck status so early in his second term, but he's still stupid enough to be dangerous and we should remain always on our guard with this madman.

Of course, the big event of the day will be Rep. John Conyers' forum on the Downing Street Minutes. The forum will be carried live at 2:30 pm ET on CSPAN-3 and Pacifica Radio. If your satellite or cable service doesn't carry CSPAN-3, you can stream it live over the internet here. It will also be rebroadcast on CSPAN-2 tomorrow evening at 8:00 pm ET.

After the forum, Rep. Conyers will deliver a letter to the president, signed by 94 House members and over half a million citizens, asking for a response to five key questions:

1) Do you or anyone in your administration dispute the accuracy of the leaked document?
2) Were arrangements being made, including the recruitment of allies, before you sought Congressional authorization to go to war? Did you or anyone in your Administration obtain Britain's commitment to invade prior to this time?
3) Was there an effort to create an ultimatum about weapons inspectors in order to help with the justification for the war as the minutes indicate?
4) At what point in time did you and Prime Minister Blair first agree it was necessary to invade Iraq?
5) Was there a coordinated effort with the U.S. intelligence community and/or British officials to "fix" the intelligence and facts around the policy as the leaked document states?

There will be a large rally in front of the White House in Lafayette Square Park at 5:00 pm ET while Rep. Conyers delivers his letter to the White House door. Should be a fun day for democracy.

More details of today's events can be found at AfterDowningStreet, a great resource site containing the text of the leaked minutes, a schedule of today's speakers, information on local rallies taking place around the country today, and much more.

After years of lies, today will be a rare day of truth. Enjoy.
