First Take on Roberts Lesson One: Do not be Distracted
First Take on Roberts
Lesson One: Do not be Distracted

As predicted in this blog, the White House scrambled today to change the subject with a hasty prime time announcement of a Supreme Court nominee. Its early in the process, but based on what I have seen, John Roberts could prove to be a real threat to civil rights, reproductive rights, privacy, separation of church and state, and the environment. Let me know your thoughts if you get a chance.

But the important lesson is that we not let the Supreme Court announcment distract us from the ongoing struggle to root out corruption and deception in the White House, by continuing our examinations of Rovegate, Downing Street, and the ongoing deception in Iraq. For example, there was an important article today in the American Prospect indicating that Rove may well have lied to the FBI -- a serious legal matter.

That is why we have scheduled the 8 town hall meetings on Downing Street and Rovegate around the country this weekend, to commemorate the 3d Anniversary of the DSM. I have also organized more than 200 house parties on DSM and Rovegate this Saturday, and just today mailed out DVD's and organizing materials to all of the Hosts. If interested in signing up to host or attend, just click here.

I for one will not be distracted. We have learned all to well that this Administration can and will manipulate the media to its advantage. However, its absolutely critical that we continue our work.
