A recap of Al Gore's speech earlier today, from Glenn Greenwald.

Look for the usual suspects to find their way onto the cable news nets to tell us that that Gore is "off his meds", or something to that effect.

As I asked last week, since Tom DeLay isn't trying to regain his Majority Leader post anymore, why are House Republicans still not going back to work until February?

It appears the answer is of a more mundane, but still amusing variety.
House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert turned down a White House request to elect a permanent successor to Tom DeLay as majority leader in advance of President Bush's State of the Union address on Jan. 31. Republican House members simply did not want to return early to Washington after their winter vacation.
Mark it down on your calendars, folks. On Monday, January 16th, 2006, the President thought others were vacationing too much.
