After weeks of claims that she and Congress were never briefed on the CIA’s use of waterboarding, it seems that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has “Some ‘Splaining” to do after yesterday’s release of a memo that says she did, in fact, receive such a briefing as early as 2002 or 2003. Today, she admitted as much. OMG.
Pelosi has tried to quiet the storm a bit by pointing out that this is exactly the sort of storyline the GOP has been looking for “to take the spotlight off of those who conceived, developed and implemented these policies” in the first place. But this isn’t likely to blow over quickly.
All of which leads us to the chorus of today’s Jam of the Day: “Oh my God/I can’t believe it/I’ve never been this far away from home.” I feel like this sums up a lot of everyone’s feelings on the matter: Oh my God (Pelosi haters), I can’t believe it (Pelosi supporters), I’ve never been this far away from home (Pelosi – she does live in CA after all).
Originally a Kaiser Chiefs song, Mark Ronson worked with Lily Allen on this remake for his album, Version. Personally, I think Ronson and Allen do it better.
