Gold Bars & Rove’s Lawyer

Funny story on TPM about (confirmed leaker) Karl Rove’s lawyer:

Saccoccia and his wife Donna were eventually convicted of laundering more than a hundred million dollars for various Colombian drug kingpins. Stephen is currently serving a 660 year sentence. Their racket was laundering drug money through companies which traded in precious metals.
….
Eventually the Feds got the idea that the money Saccoccia had paid Luskin and his other attorneys for their services was itself part of the $137 million in drug money he was ordered to forfeit. Now, on the face of it this seems a bit unfair since under our system everyone is entitled to good representation and how was Luskin to know it was tainted money.

Well, the prosecutors thought he should have gotten some inkling when Saccoccia started paying Luskin’s attorney’s fees in gold bars.

What Is Absolute Evolution?

From the New Republic:

Whether [Pat Buchanan] personally believes in evolution: “Do I believe in absolute evolution? No. I don’t believe that evolution can explain the creation of matter….”

This article asks conservative intellectuals what they think of evolution and intelligent design. Most of them come off pretty well, actually. Buchanan, on the other hand, has a lot to say about something he doesn’t appear to understand.
