I'm liking the new media

From CNN's article on the "terror fighting" bill which passed in the Senate and is headed for the House:
House GOP leaders say their proposal, which includes creation of a national intelligence director as well as additional anti-terrorism and illegal immigration powers, is the best bill. "It's real simple. The House bill -- every single word of it -- will make the American people safer," said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas. (House Ethics Committee admonishes DeLay again)
In other words, it's real simple: this bill is supported by a lying scumbag.

This is a new trend this week, where somebody in the media, aside from the Daily Show, points out contradictions between what some administration official says and what he/she said before, or, as in this case, immediately reminds readers that the source isn't credible. This is my main reason for saying that Bush is toast--when even fluffy mainstream media like CNN is fact-checking, Bush no longer has the support of the powers that be. They have the ability to remove him from office, and they will.
