Bush Roundup...

Today's latest fun-filled episode of What's My President Doing This Time has a couple of doozies. First, there's the re-emergence of CAPPS II, just in case you were starting to think you weren't going to be watched again.

The Supremes did a little dance around the legal system and proclaimed that the government could hide who they've picked up under suspicion of terrorism. Just to note, they also mentioned that the government could keep secret also who just was in the government, and will also keep the names on every presidential ballot secret (Their new motto: We Know Who You Wanted To Vote For Anyway.)

As if the rest of his agenda wasn't bad enough, I find this on the NY Times: "Bush Plans $1.5 Billion Drive for Promotion of Marriage"

Administration officials say they are planning an extensive election-year initiative to promote marriage, especially among low-income couples, and they are weighing whether President Bush should promote the plan next week in his State of the Union address.

Yep, it's going to be a long year.
