Mysteriouser And Mysteriouser

The latest word is that not only did Berger lose documents, but he also added some to the files:

…the thrust of the federal investigation now looking into Mr. Berger’s actions should center not necessarily on what was taken from the archived files but what was placed in them.

Trying to rewrite a little history?

And this part is very disturbing, at least to me:

…adding an entirely new layer of intrigue to the story is word that telephone calls made by Berger during those latter two visits may have been monitored by an “unauthorized agency.”

Another Foreign Leader For Kerry

The endorsements just keep rolling in:

“Arafat is now waiting for the month of November in the hope that President Bush will be defeated in the presidential elections and turned out of his office,” Ze’evi told the cabinet. Arafat also expects that Sharon will be toppled from the premiership, he said.

I’m sure he’s hoping for renewed invitations to the White House, just like the Clinton years.

Politically Tone Deaf

The Kerry campaign used a Rolls Royce as its press logo in Detroit. You gotta admire the attempts at spinning their way out:

Asked about the press-pass logo, Kerry spokesman David Wade said it was unintentional error by a campaign volunteer and then criticized President Bush’s economic policies.

“I could say that the Rolls-Royce is the perfect symbol of who got the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, but sometimes objects in the rearview mirror are closer than they appear,” he said.

“Under President Bill Clinton, our strong economy actually helped bring Rolls-Royce jobs to the United States for American workers,” Mr. Wade said. “Now, with health care costs rising and no end in sight under George Bush, American automakers say they may have to outsource jobs overseas. That’s why John Kerry’s health care plan offers relief to American companies and hope for the United Auto Workers who are fighting to put John Kerry and John Edwards in the White House.”

I’m simultaneously amazed and appalled at people who can spout this stuff and keep a straight face.
