Staffers on Capitol Hill are howling over an e-mail sent from Sen. Larry Craig's office Friday about a watch found -- guess where -- in the men's room! The e-mail, which is being forwarded pretty much all over the place on Capitol Hill, is from Pat Olsen, the embattled Idaho Republican's administrative director. The e-mail announced that a watch was found in the men's room...

Kucinich vs. Cheney, Round 2

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) remains set on bucking Democratic congressional leaders by offering a resolution to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Longshot Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich wants Congress to impeach the vice president. (AP File Photo) In a letter sent to his Democratic colleagues today, Kucinich said "momentum is building for impeachment." Seven months after first floating the idea of impeachment, Kucinich now says...

Bush's New Chief of Protocol's Youthful Indiscretion

She hasn't even been on the job a full month and already we've discovered that Nancy Brinker, President Bush's new Chief of Protocol, had a youthful indiscretion. Not of the Henry Hyde or even George W. Bush variety. No, hers was different. And to some die-hard politicos -- far more risqué. Brinker, former ambassador to Hungary and the lady behind the pink ribbon, the icon...

Senators Go Nuclear, Then Make Nice (Sort of)

After pounding each other with insults in a dramatic public display a day earlier, Sens. Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) and Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) buried the hatchet yesterday. Or did they? Depends who you ask. DeMint tells us he and Dorgan have agreed to settle their nasty spat at Tuesday's committee markup of legislation to reauthorize the Consumer Product Safety Commission as a "staff" misunderstanding.

Hillary Loses the Nina Primary

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) took heavy flak from all sides this week -- and not just from her rivals at the Democratic debate. While her presidential primary competitors at the Drexel University forum in Philadelphia Tuesday evening skewered her on everything from her integrity and electability to her aggressive stance on Iran, Clinton took heat from the Fourth Estate in Washington for her penchant...

Karl Rove, Life of the Party

Karl Rove sure makes life after W look footloose and fancy-free. President Bush's (former) Brain didn't seem to have a care in the world Monday night as he smiled and schmoozed his way through a book party for New York Daily News bureau chief Tom DeFrank. Well, not a care in the world except for... his own book. Remember: the Sleuth was first to report,...
