Deep Throat Revealed

I guess it's official. Deep Throat was Mark Felt, of the FBI. Lots of interesting commentary on The Corner today. The best was Warren Bell observing that whatever else he may be, Mark Felt is two-thirds of a sentence.

(Yes, he actually could be a whole sentence. Bell's version is funnier.)

The Dhia Muhsin Example

Another roundup of the past two weeks' good news from Iraq.
Mudher Khudher, 42, a bakery owner, said he is proud of Muhsin['s] actions and he and others have decided to follow his example, "Dhia taught us that the terrorists are cowards and they can't face all Iraqis."

Not One Dime

Found this campaign on Captain's Quarters via Michelle Malkin. Great idea.

Not One Dime to the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
For the second time in a week, the Democrats have exposed Bill Frist as a well-meaning, ethical, but hopelessly outclassed Majority Leader. Frist wasted the momentum from the election and the Democrats' obvious obstructionism in January by stalling for months on addressing the judicial nominations, only bringing it up after the base finally erupted in anger and impatience. Instead of trying to consolidate whatever gains the GOP got out of the testicular bypass John McCain and Company foisted on Frist by pushing through the rest of the judicial nominees after Priscilla Owen's confirmation, Frist trusted Harry Reid and scheduled Bolton's nomination instead -- and got shafted. I warned the GOP earlier this week that this decision was a mistake.
