Sources have confirmed to HA that Safeco Insurance is indeed the unnamed “Firm 1″ in a Washington Insurance Commissioner’s Office study of the abusive use of credit scoring to cancel auto-insurance policies. As first reported in the Seattle Times, Safeco has asked the Thurston County Superior Court to block release of the information.

According to sources familiar with the investigation, the controversial practice was initially pioneered in WA state by Progressive Insurance. Sources say that Safeco was actually late to embrace the practice, but did so aggressively under former CEO Mike!™ McGavick’s leadership, far and quickly exceeding the scope and impact of its competition. As the Times initially reported:

The study cited “Firm 1″ for relying on credit scoring to cancel auto policies, as opposed to simply raising rates, which the other companies did. It said Firm 1′s decisions disproportionately impacted minorities, divorced women and low-income residents.

Many of those terminated by Firm 1 had clean driving records.

“Over one-quarter of those cancelled for low credit scores” by Firm 1 “had no ‘incidents’ in the insurer’s records, though some had been with the insurer for more than 10 years,” the 2003 study said.

“Seventeen percent of apparently accident-free cancelled policyholders were minorities.”

When the story first broke Monday I thought it would be easy to find a cooperative source inside an office Democrats have held for years, but extracting relevant information turned out to be harder than squeezing blood from a stone. Commissioner Mike Kreidler has called credit scoring “a form of redlining” and thinks it “should have been banned,” yet he has adamantly refused to disclose the identity of the firms in question until the legal issues are resolved.

This has apparently led to much consternation in and outside his office by those who complain that Kreidler is not doing enough to help fellow Democrats. But while I personally wouldn’t mind if Kreidler were a bit more partisan, I fully admire the respect he has shown for his office, and am somewhat reminded of similar complaints from GOP stalwarts who attacked Secretary of State Sam Reed for not doing more to help fellow Republican Dino Rossi come out on top of our excruciatingly close 2004 gubernatorial election.

Still, this was a study conducted by a public agency, paid for with taxpayer dollars, and so the public has a right to know its details. Thus if you are one of those Insurance Office insiders who think Kreidler should be more partisan, I urge you to act on your convictions and please leak me any relevant documents. I promise to maintain your anonymity, and once again affirm my pledge to go to jail before ever revealing a source.

(This is why it takes guts to write here using my real name. Still, as a member of the military, albeit in the Fleet Reserve (retired Navy, for you Army and Air Force types) I refuse to be cowed by whackos and cowards calling me a traitor, just because they disagree with me politically.)

First, were the attackers wearing something that identified them as “liberal” or “Democrat”? Gee, nobody has gotten around to issuing my uniform. Maybe it’s just that I should be wearing a yellow, six-pointed star. (I’m a Methodist, but I’d wear it proudly anyway.)

Next, wasn’t it the Bush administration that sent our Soldiers and Marines into battle with insufficient manpower and equipment, while giving the bid-free contract to Halliburton to supply water (Halliburton thought 1 liter per man, per day should be enough. After all, Soldiers tend to be recruited from poor and minority neighborhoods, and those folks don’t need as much water as real people.)

People that would use this kind of incident for political points are the most low, worthless, miserable excuses for human beings that the world contains.

pbj I’ve tried to avoid calling names, although I admit that I’ve slipped occasionally. You however are a worthless coward. You have called me and others on this board treasonous when, as far as I know, you have never served a day in your life and you hide behind anonymous initials.

I call you coward.

Not your party. I have issues with their positions on many topics, but I also know intelligent, well-meaning Republicans. I’ve served with many, although there are also a lot of Democrats in uniform. While some here will disagree, most Republicans are people of good will that truly desire what they see as best for the country. While I disagree with their priorities and methods, I think most of them are trying to do what they see as right.

You would be a disgrace to your party, were you old enough to vote. When you reach 18, do something most Republican youth refuse to do. Join the military. Serve your country. Put your own life on the line to defend it. Until then, coward, go back to the kiddie boards and leave political discussion to the grown-ups.

August 31, 1939 (65 Years Ago Today) – Operation Himmler:

“So that Germany did not officially seem the aggressor (which it was), Hitler needed an excuse for entering/attacking Poland. It was Heinrich Himmler who came up with the idea; thus the plan was code named Operation Himmler.

On the night of August 31, 1939, Nazis took an unknown prisoner from one of their concentration camps, dressed him in a Polish uniform, took him to the town of Gleiwitz (on the border of Poland and Germany), and then shot him. The staged scene with the dead prisoner dressed in a Polish uniform was supposed to appear as a Polish attack against a German radio station.

Hitler used the staged attack as the excuse to invade Poland.”

I worked for an insurance company for a time, and credit history is very important when evaluating a customer. If a person is late on payments for cars, medical bill, etc., he or she is proably not a very good risk. Statistically, insurers have a pretty good idea of who is going to be a good customer and who isn’t when they view credit history.

Tied in with this credit evaluation are other things like occupation, education, driving record, claims history, etc. Oddly enough, one of the most important things an insurer looks at is whether or not a customer has had his or her electrical power or water cut off. The theory is that, if a person is so irresponsible as to have his or her utilities shut-off, then he or she is probably not going to be paying premiums for insurance promptly either.

Whether you hate insurance companies or not is meaningless to my comments. I’m stating this information here to possibly give warning to others to consider his or her choices in the future and how these choices will affect things like insurance. It’s about personal responsibility, not about defending insurance companies or attacking them.

“I don’t know where that comes from and you don’t say, but anyone in the Logistics field knows that’s an insane figure.”

While I do know that many Soldiers in the field were complaining bitterly about a lack of potable drinking water, I shouldn’t have used the 1 liter per day figure without checking it.

That’s what I get for using hearsay information. The premise of the post I was responding to had me so angry I skipped my normal fact checking.

I have since gone back to check my information, and while
I was able to find considerable information about Halliburton’s failure to provide adequate potable water, and additional information about contaminated water being used as drinking water for our troops, I have been unable to confirm what I agree is an outrageously low number.

Good to think that even they aren’t quite that bad.

Unless there is evidence of illegal activity, I’ve got to go with Jim here.

Selective leaking is one of the things that the Republicans have done, but that doesn’t make it right for us to do the same thing. Partisanship should stop at the office door.

It’s really tempting to play the same kind of dirty tricks that the other side does, but if we do, what makes us better than them?

It’s also tempting to “do what needs to be done to win” and believe that we will clean up after we’re in office. I think that most Republicans started out as honorable people that truly believed in the ideals that the Republican party has voiced for many years.

But, in “doing what needed to be done to win”, they became what they are today. Honest and honorable people either left the party or became marginalized, while people that had no qualms about cheating in order to win also turned out to have no qualms about cheating in order to personally gain from their elected or appointed positions.

We need to be better than that, and we need to hold ourselves to the very highest standards, or we risk becoming what the Republican party has become.

PBJ at 6 is being the obedient tool, continuing to push a story which is wildly improbable (i.e., false) on its face.

As RR pointed out previously in another posting, it is highly unlikely that a gang of white “liberals” in their low to mid twenties, sporting short hair and baseball caps and sweatshrits, tried to assault a soldier because he was in the military. The more likely explanations are either (a) this was a hate crime directed at a black soldier and the comments were made to cover up their real motive (and impugn the anti-war folks in the process), or (b) this was a planned attack by Republican strategists in an attempt to create an incident to “demonize” the opposition, or (c) this is an attempt by independent right-wing nuts to accomplish the same purpose, or (d) the soldier got into a fight under circumstances he didn’t want to admint, and made up this story to explain his injuries.

Somehow, this reminds me of an important anniversary coming up. What was that? Oh, yes. Sept. 1, 1939. The day Germany invaded Poland, starting WWII (at least, the portion of WWII in Europe).

But shortly before the invasion, Germans dressed prisoner’s in Polish uniforms and then killed them, photographing them as evidence of a Polish attack on a German radio station on the border. Using this trumped-up “justification” for the massive invasion shortly thereafter, Hitler’s tactic silenced any potential critics at home, created a wave of patriotism and support for his aggression, and also added a day or so of confusion (internationally) which Hitler needed while his forces breached the initial Polish defenses.

I couldn’t immediatly find the date for the “false attack” Hitler staged, but I think it was the day before the actual attack. So that would make TODAY the 65th anniversary of that rather infamous attempt at public deception.

Coincidence? Probably. Ironic? Probably.

The right-wing has tried for the past three years to portray the left as hating American troops, in order to demonize them. Instead, the left has thanked them for serving their country and carefully seperated their respect for their service from the political mistakes of our civilian leadership. This must be very frustrating to the rightists, who can’t win an election unless they demonize the opposition.

It may or may not have any national coordination, or it might just be some local wingnuts, or maybe the guardsman needed a sympathetic story to explain how he got beat in a fight for completely unrelated reasons. but I seriously doubt any armed “peacenicks” bailed out of a suburban to surround and beat a national guardsman.

Many state agencies are entrusted with the handling of confidential and proprietary information and until recently there has never been concern about leaks. But if no one can trust these many state agencies to not selectively leak information, many wheels of state government will come grinding to a halt.

That earlier leak had much to do with the death of the journalist’s shield law this session. Just add some more fuel to the fire, and set up a few partisans for firing…

This inability to understand causes them to lash out in a manner that appears quite irrational to those of us who think differently. Can you imagine a world full of people like PROUDASS and JCH? Now, that would be frightening. Of course, they would all end up killing each other because, after all, there would still be differences amongst them, so they would continue to fear each other.

Hey Daddy Love, how many shares do you own of the government bond fund in your retirement account? How much are you “vested” for? According to theSCOTUS decision, Nestor v. Fuller in 1960, you (and everybody else) are zero percent vested at all times in social security.

Some people are born stupid, some achieve stupidity, some have stupidity thrust upon them, and some just play stupid to score cheap meaningless poitns against straw men. I do not have a “retirement account” in the SS system. Yes, no one is vested as in a savings match. I’ve spoken with you before, and it was never my impression that you are hopelessly dense, so it comes as a surprise to me that the fact that SS is a “pay as you go” plan should be news to you. My benefits, which judging from my periodic statements will be a welcome addition to my retirement income from savings and other investments, will be paid by current workers of the time. I am imagining that you really are aware of this setup and that your questions is intended to elicit a reaction from the ignorant, along the lines of “Whuh?

I don’t know where that comes from and you don’t say, but anyone in the Logistics field knows that’s an insane figure. I don’t know what the Navy uses but the Army uses 7 gallons a soldier per day as a planning factor. It would probably be higher in Iraq, because of the high temperature.

If he was engaged in “clandestine” activities in Europe as a Marine, my guess was that he was seconded to the OSS, as you mentioned. But it seems a strange assignement for a movie actor. Even though he mostly found his fame after the war, wouldn’t you think he might be a bit too recongizable to have a clandestine role?

It might also explain his rather criptic comment about clandestine assignments in Vietnam. While I’m sure they didn’t have him jumping out of airplanes or helicopters into enemy territory in Vietnam, but he could have held some sort of desk intelligence function which he wasn’t supposed to talk about.

Anyway, it might explain why there isn’t more information available about his service during the war. Usually publicity agents post-war were eager to emphasize (and sometimes exagerate) an actor’s military service.

If it can be shown that there is a statistically significant correlation between poor credit scores and high driving risk, shouldn’t SAFECO have the right to make business decisions based on that?

Who’s fucking business is it who they choose to do business with? Or is insurance an “entitlement?

43. rhp6033 spews:

Back to the Insurance question”

The whole idea of insurance, from the policyholder’s perspective, is to take advantage of the largest group possible to spread the risk. This means that instead of each person having to save tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars against a realtively low probability of a ruinous loss, then instead each policy holder can pay only an amount which is actually proportionate to the risk of loss.

But from the insurer’s perspective, there is a motivation to continually define their risk and reduce it by excluding from the group those which are more likely to file claims. Thus insurance companies sponsor many thousands of studies which will evaluate different factors which, they hope, will predict future claims behavior among their customers.

There is a continual tug-of-war among these competing goals. Customers want a large group from which to spread their risk, but they don’t want higher-risk individuals in their own group, either. Insurance companies want more customers (and thereby more premiums), but to the extent they can predict claim-filing behavior accurately and exclude certian potential customers, they can pocket more profits.

So we have tens of thousands of studies which, for example, predict driving behavior based upon race, sex, age, geographic location, occupation, # miles traveled, music preferences, etc., etc., etc., etc.

Some of these distinctions we have prohibited as a matter of public policy. Insurance companies cannot, for example, discriminate on the basis or race, regardless of how many studies they produce which allege to justify it. They also cannot discriminate based upon sex, but are specifically allowed (in Washington) to apply different rate structures based upon sex, provided they have studies to support it.

But the problem with using credit history as a predictor of risk is threefold.

First, it tends to impact minorities more than whites, in the same proportion as the statistical impact upon claims. In other words, are the isurance companies just trying to find another way to discriminate on the basis of race? What if we prohibit discrimination based on race, but allow it for anyone having hair of a specific texture?

Second, it presumes that people having trouble paying other bills might have trouble paying for insurance bills. But couldn’t that be handled merely by requiring insurance to be paid in advance (as every insurance company I know does?)

Third, as a matter of public policy, it increases the problems of the customer, rather than helping to solve them, and thereby magnifies social costs born by society. A working person who needs his car to commute to work, but is having trouble paying his bills, is going to find himself having to go to a high-risk insurer, and pay much more for insurance, is going to help the situation – how???? If he cannot afford high-risk insurance, but drives anyway because he has to work and pay the bills, then any accident he has will not be paid by him (he is already judgement-proof), but instead will be paid by either (a) the other driver’s insurance, under collission, PPI, or underinsured moterist cover, or (b) by the state, in hospital care for the indigent.

There are a lot better ways to accomplish any of the goals which insurance companies are attempting to accomplish with credit checks. Among them: (a) using actual driving records, and (b) using actual history of paying for car insurance premiums.

If you’re going to claim the title of Naval Officer, at least make some effort to live up to the standards of a Naval Officer.

Some of the folks on the liberal side here are probably fifteen year olds sitting at dad’s computer. If they can’t act like adults, then they should also go back to watching MTV.

But you have claimed to be an officer of the United States Navy, an organization that I have been part of for most of my life. Do not disgrace it.

While I hope that civilians behave with respect to others, I do not hold them to the same standards as a Naval Officer. If your claim is true, then act like an officer. Commissioned rank carries special priviledges, but far more importantly, it carries the obligation to act honorably and to treat others with respect, even if you do not personally believe they rate it.

If my belief is true, and you aren’t actually an officer, then I would hope that it is something you could aspire to.

But remember, being an officer in the United States Navy is considerably different than the image you may have gotten watching “Top Gun” or “McHale’s Navy”.

Basically the article says that they were using waste water for showers, teeth brushing, and other miscellaneous water needs. The Army uses ROWPU’s to provide clean safe water. The system is Reverse Osmosis Water Purification Unit (ROWPU). Halliburton has them, mostly from military units that have left an area, and then KBR takes over the equipment.

I will say that if soldiers with that job skill had been operating the equipment, it never would have happened. It looks like untrained contractors are operating them and their supervisors in KBR are too hard headed to listen.

I have a friend over in Iraq now who works for KBR and you should hear him tell stories about some of their employees….. Unfortunately you will always have some people who don’t do the job they are paid to do.

I got an ear infection from taking a shower in a alleged 4-star hotel in Thailand, we were there for an exercise and the Army Doc who saw me said they found e coli in the water at the hotel.

MTR at 51: Our state insists that drivers carry insurance. This creates a guaranteed customer pool for insurance companies. Since we are not free to “go bare” (i.e., not carry insurance and drive), then auto insurance companies have an unequal bargaining position with their customers.

That is why most states which have mandatory insurance laws require insurance companies to to have their rates approved by the insurance commissioner. Washington does not require such rate approval, but it does have some restrictions upon how insurance companies can select their customers, or discriminate against them in setting rates.

Some of the credit scoring does seem illogical. For example, PEMCO will give insurance rates 53% lower for people with the best credit scores than for people with the worst credit scores — basically a multiple of 2.128 for having a bad credit score. Probably SAFECO has a similar differential.

However, if you have one accident in the last three years, you get 40% higher rates — multiple of 1.40. And two accidents in the last three years gives you a multiple of 1.80.

Is an accident free driver with lousy credit — let’s say a lawyer who recently lost his house in foreclosure — a worse risk than someone with excellent credit that has had one or two accidents in the last three years?

National Guardsman Brutally Attacked In Pierce County

POSTED: 4:33 pm PDT August 30, 2006
UPDATED: 6:15 pm PDT August 30, 2006

PARKLAND, Wash. — The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is searching for five people who allegedly attacked a uniformed National Guardsmen walking along 138th Street in Parkland Tuesday afternoon.

The soldier was walking to a convenience store when a sport utility vehicle pulled up alongside him and the driver asked if he was in the military and if he had been in any action.

The driver then got out of the vehicle, displayed a gun and shouted insults at the victim. Four other suspects exited the vehicle and knocked the soldier down, punching and kicking him.

“And during the assault the suspects called him a baby killer. At that point they got into the car and drove off and left him on the side of the road,” Detective Ed Troyer with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.

The suspects were driving a black Chevy Suburban-type SUV.

“This is something new for us, we have not had military people assaulted because they were in the military or somebody’s opposition to a war or whatever,” Troyer said.

The driver is described as a white male, 25-30 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, heavy build, short blond hair, wearing a black T-shirt and jeans, and armed with a handgun.

The vehicle’s passengers are described as white males, 20-25 years old. Some of the suspects wore red baseball hats and red sweatshirts during the attack.

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and charging of the individuals involved. Informants can call 253-591-5959, and callers will remain anonymous.

rhp6033 @ 62:

When I was working for an auto insurer several years ago, the industry estimate was that about 40% of the drivers in Washington were driving around without insurance. These people tend to be younger folks with few resources. They also have a tendency to have at-fault accidents where there is damage to property and injury to others.

If you don’t have uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage or uninsured motorist property damage coverage on your current policy, I strongly urge you to call your insurance agent and add those two coverages. You need them a lot more than you might think.

@52 Another reason offered for credit scoring is that those in financial difficulties are more likely to engage in insurance fraud- however I would think the answer to that is to use credit scores to flag the policy for more intense claim scrutiny, when and if a claim is filed.

@62 Actually, you are NOT required to have insurance, if you are one of those` wealthy enough to cover your own financial responsibility… As for rates, increases do not have to be pre-approved, but they are subject to review and companies can be forced to roll rates back. Periodic review of insurance rates have shown that our process is as effective as pre-approval in holding down rates, without as much administrative cost.

3.) black and latino rapists roving in bands
4.) toxic flood waters that would kill on contact.
5.) Looting all over the city
6.) People dying the dozens in the Superdome

All this bulshitto was not true. Now we know the real reason for the levee failure moonbats. Read below.

Well this was true:
1.) New Orleans cops shoplifting at WalMart
2.) New Orleans cops shaking down looters and keeping the loot
3.) New Orleans cops beating up old men

http://www.examiner.com/a-254236%7EKevin_Aylward__Katrina__Forget_everything_you_thought_you_knew.html

In the year since Katrina, we’ve learned that the storm was a Category 1 by the time she hit New Orleans. We’ve also learned that the primary levee breach — the one that caused 70 percent of the flooding in the city — was not caused by the storm surge but by poor engineering.

After months of dissembling and obfuscation by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers — the designers of the levee system — the Corps was forced to admit what all the outside experts were saying; critical engineering mistakes caused the walls that were supposed to protect the city to collapse before they were overtopped by the storm surge. And on the east side of the city, the flooding was largely caused by a shipping channel the Corps dug three decades earlier. …

All this leads to the even more shocking conclusion that Hurricane Katrina probably saved 50,000 lives.

That levee was doomed. While Katrina was the last straw, it was destined to fail. Studies done before the storm indicated that if a major hurricane overwhelmed the city’s levees, as many as 100,000 people would die as a result.

If the levee had failed without warning, there would have been no evacuation, no preparation, no state/federal support, no Coast Guardsmen in helicopters etc. If you think Katrina was bad with governmental preparations, consider an event half that size without it.

Looks like the credit score on the ACoE would be 2.128. Who’d a thunk the ACoE breached the levees themselves. Did the moonbat MSM check into it? Hell no. The horse whisperer wanted Mike Brown out of the job. Now that the truth is out will the moonbats change their tune.

The trend of incumbent Democratic lawmakers facing primary challenges from the left is not sparing black lawmakers, despite their generally being among the party’s more liberal representatives and blacks being the party’s most loyal constituency.

Rep. Albert R. Wynn, Maryland Democrat, is facing a strong primary challenge from Prince George’s County lawyer Donna Edwards, who says he is too conservative to represent his predominantly black constituency. The most unlikely Congressional Black Caucus member, Rep. Bobby L. Rush, Illinois Democrat, faced similar charges from his opponent Philip Jackson in the primary. “Our opponent in the primary attempted to use that strategy against Mr. Rush in relation to his vote for the energy bill last year,” said a staffer for Mr. Rush.

Mr. Rush is a former Black Panther and recognized as one of the most liberal members of Congress yet he and Mr. Wynn were both attacked by their opponents for supporting the energy bill, a choice both men said they made after they successfully worked out a deal in committee to increase federal low-income home energy assistance program (LIHEAP) by $3 billion.

“My general view is that the Democratic Party used to be the big tent party where everyone is allowed to express their views; now it is being taken over by these bloggers and purists who can only see one way of thinking,” Mr. Wynn said. “We can think for ourselves and not for somebody else’s idea of what a liberal is supposed to be.”

For your answer, if the Democrats don’t take back at least one house of congress, we will do all we can to keep the Republicans from destroying our country.

It is amazing how many lies Bush can tell, and how many mistakes Rumsfeld can make, and you still support them.

Have you thought of checking in somewhere…..

One Blatant Bush Lie:

BUSH: Secondly, there are such things as roving wiretaps. Now, by the way, any time you hear the United States government talking about wiretap, it requires — a wiretap requires a court order. Nothing has changed, by the way. When we’re talking about chasing down terrorists, we’re talking about getting a court order before we do so.

You know, you can cover a Republican with enough evidence to dwarf Mt. Raineer, and they stil refuse to see the light….

What was it the judge ruled a couple weeks ago? I heard the number of felonies Bush committed while authorizing warrantless wiretaps (of political enemies I would guess) numbers in the 30′s.

You how about accountability, and the rule of law, Mr. Republican?

At some point Rovian soundbites don’t hold up to REALITY!!!

Carl and others here is a Fact that CONTINUES to Support Our Position:

End of an Affair
It turns out that the person who exposed CIA agent Valerie Plame was not out to punish her husband.

Friday, September 1, 2006; A20

WE’RE RELUCTANT to return to the subject of former CIA employee Valerie Plame because of our oft-stated belief that far too much attention and debate in Washington has been devoted to her story and that of her husband, former ambassador Joseph C. Wilson IV, over the past three years. But all those who have opined on this affair ought to take note of the not-so-surprising disclosure that the primary source of the newspaper column in which Ms. Plame’s cover as an agent was purportedly blown in 2003 was former deputy secretary of state Richard L. Armitage.

Mr. Armitage was one of the Bush administration officials who supported the invasion of Iraq only reluctantly. He was a political rival of the White House and Pentagon officials who championed the war and whom Mr. Wilson accused of twisting intelligence about Iraq and then plotting to destroy him. Unaware that Ms. Plame’s identity was classified information, Mr. Armitage reportedly passed it along to columnist Robert D. Novak “in an offhand manner, virtually as gossip,” according to a story this week by the Post’s R. Jeffrey

Smith, who quoted a former colleague of Mr. Armitage.

It follows that one of the most sensational charges leveled against the Bush White House — that it orchestrated the leak of Ms. Plame’s identity to ruin her career and thus punish Mr. Wilson — is untrue. The partisan clamor that followed the raising of that allegation by Mr. Wilson in the summer of 2003 led to the appointment of a special prosecutor, a costly and prolonged investigation, and the indictment of Vice President Cheney’s chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, on charges of perjury. All of that might have been avoided had Mr. Armitage’s identity been known three years ago.

That’s not to say that Mr. Libby and other White House officials are blameless. As prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald has reported, when Mr. Wilson charged that intelligence about Iraq had been twisted to make a case for war, Mr. Libby and Mr. Cheney reacted by inquiring about Ms. Plame’s role in recommending Mr. Wilson for a CIA-sponsored trip to Niger, where he investigated reports that Iraq had sought to purchase uranium. Mr. Libby then allegedly disclosed Ms. Plame’s identity to journalists and lied to a grand jury when he said he had learned of her identity from one of those reporters. Mr. Libby and his boss, Mr. Cheney, were trying to discredit Mr. Wilson; if Mr. Fitzgerald’s account is correct, they were careless about handling information that was classified.

Nevertheless, it now appears that the person most responsible for the end of Ms. Plame’s CIA career is Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson chose to go public with an explosive charge, claiming — falsely, as it turned out — that he had debunked reports of Iraqi uranium-shopping in Niger and that his report had circulated to senior administration officials. He ought to have expected that both those officials and journalists such as Mr. Novak would ask why a retired ambassador would have been sent on such a mission and that the answer would point to his wife. He diverted responsibility from himself and his false charges by claiming that President Bush’s closest aides had engaged in an illegal conspiracy. It’s unfortunate that so many people took him seriously.

The scuttlebutt around the biz when the “credit scoring” shit hit the fan (and the incidences that precipitated the passage of legislation limiting and regulating the use of credit scores in the underwriting of property/casualty insurance risks) was this…Sacfeco (under the leadership of Mike!) was said to have non-renewed the 1% of any and all clients with the lowest credit scores regardless of loss history, insurance payment history, and length of time as policyholders with the company. After the first year purge was complete…Safeco (under the leadership of Mike!) took the same lowest 1% and did it again. As the shitstorm migrated from the University District to the offices of the DOI in Olympia, Safeco (under the leadership of Mike!) was ordered to cease and desist.
It was shortly thereafter that the Insurance Commissioner sposored what remains (I think) the toughest regulation in the US of this odious and irrelevant practice.

I know the single-car collision which is Katherin Harris’ campaign is old news. She has turned into a considerable embarrasment for the Republicans, who are hoping that one of her three relatively unknown challengers in the primary can get enough votes to win the nomination. The L.A. Times today had a recap of her mis-steps in the current campaign:

Rep. Harris Goes from GOP Darling to Liability

But one of the quotes in that article nearly shot out of from the page:

“Harris’ current — and fourth — campaign communications director, Jennifer Marks, said … Harris was unruffled by her diminishing poll numbers, because “we’ve said all along that the only poll that matters is the one held on election day.””

Now remember, Katherine Harris was the Florida Secty of State, who, while serving as co-chairman of Bush’s Florida election campaign, certified the election in favor of Bush even while the count was continuing and in the midst of several court challenges, and refused to re-open the count or to allow a re-count until compelled to do so by court order.

Makes you wonder: does she know something about what is going to happen on election day that the rest of us don’t know?

And also, she still seems to get 38% support among likely Republican voters, according to the polls. The only thing which gives her a chance at the nomination is that her three opponants are splitting the anti-Harris vote. But given her recent history (see the article for a re-cap), is there ANTHING she could do which would cause her to lose the vote of over 1/3 of Republican voters? What deal did she make with the devil to get the continued support of 38% of Republican voters?

132. rhp6033 spews:

Libertarian: UIM insurance isn’t “mandatory”, in the sense that the insured has to buy it. It is mandatory for the insurance company offers it to the policyholder, and the policyholder has to specifically reject it in writing. But I think that’s what you meant.

It might be that the guy was attacked, but not by a bunch of white rednecks. I get the impression you and Roger would prefer it to be true that white boys that were really conservative attacked the guardmen and not liberal peace activists. The white boys were just trying to make the cops believe they were liberals.

This whole thing is starting to sound more and more like Tawanna Bradley and Al Sharpton did the correography.

137. Jim King spews:

@133 I think it might be best to accept Pierce County’s Democratic administration’s view on this- an unprovoked attack fueled by anti-military sentiment. That doesn’t mean “peace-nik did it”. But there have been too many incidents in recent months of little men who haven’t served trying to show they are “big men” by ganging up on a soldier. Regardless of one’s views on the war, this should be cause for concern, not ammo to be used against the other side. By either side.

In one sense, it is too bad there are not enough of these incidents to provide for a replay of the Battle of East Los Angeles- these losers would have no chance against a group of soldiers, sailors, and marines. In fact, one only needs to go back to the Battle of Hilltop in Tacoma to see what a few Rangers can do to a group of local thugs.

It definitely isn’t treason and as a matter of fact, it’s not against the law either! If it was against the law, Rove would be in jail, now wouldn’t he? The plain and simple fact is that Valerie Pflame doesn’t meet the legal criteria of a covert CIA agent in the federal laws.

You can scream all you want about how she is covert and she was outed, but your opinion doesn’t matter. The special prosecutor didn’t charge Rove because he knows he won’t get a conviction.

It’s kinda hard to be a covert agent when your idiot husband takes you to the “In” parties and introduces you as his CIA agent wife. It’s also pretty fucking stupid to recommend your idiot husband go on an high-profile investigative mission about yellow-cakes and then the idiot comes back and writes a letter to the editor of the New York Times which is read around the world.

Covert, my ass, her husband outed her before Rove did!
