Back in a week!

Off for a week of R&R to the tropical sands of...northern Ohio! (click on title header of the post to see our cute little destination). My able teammates will carry on in my stead!

Lying under oath?

''I, George Walker Bush, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.''

The Hippie, Round 2

This award goes to the hypocrite of the week.

The nominees:

RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman, with this Tilt-a-Whirl of spin:

"Two stories have come out this week, both of which have the effect of exonerating and vindicating Mr. Rove, not implicating him. And what's so amazing and what's so outrageous, in my judgment, is, despite the fact that this investigation is ongoing, despite the fact that Mr. Rove and other people at the White House are cooperating fully with Pat Fitzgerald, Democrat partisans on the Hill have engaged in a smear campaign where they have attacked Karl Rove on the basis of information which actually vindicates and exonerates him, not implicates him."

Please, that doesn't even pass the giggle test.

Victoria Toensing, described in the Washington Post as "a lawyer and longtime Republican (wow, two strikes right there!) who helped write the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982." She amazingly says, in regard to President Chimpy's comments below,

"Of course you are going to be concerned if a law was broken, but what is it that somebody did wrong if they didn't break the law?"

WHAT??? This from the party that wants to control who we sleep with, what we watch, what kids wear, who we marry and what we listen to says its OK if its not a crime? Pornography? Drunkenness? Profanity? Flag burning? Racism? Atheism? Lying? Adultery? Abortion, perhaps? I suppose since it's legal, it's OK? Amazing.

President Chimpy, who despite already receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, has to be nominated for changing his tune from firing anyone INVOLVED to anyone who committed a crime (i.e., charged, indicted, tried and convicted). Pathetic.

Upon reflection, it is a dead heat. A Hippy goes to both Ken and Vicky, and we have to add another sticker to Chimpy's trophy....

The coverup is always worse than the crime....

Raise your hand if you think Mr. Fitzgerald has some perjury and obstruction charges ready to go?

If I was the president....

Well, for one thing, I wouldn't be a lying, amoral cretin who deceived the country into war, but that is another story for another time.

I would, however, be quite nervous right about now. Patrick Fitzgerald, the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, is FEARLESS. He is getting VERY close to Hizzoner Da Mare's office here in Chicago on a variety of scandals. If he isn't afraid of Daley, the machine and the mob, he certainly won't be cowed by greedy oilmen. Karl Rove may well be just some low-hanging fruit....stay tuned!

Who are these people????

20 percent of respondents to the recent WSJ-NBC poll described President Chimpy as "smart" and "intelligent."

Two questions...

1) who are these people and 2) how can I get them to play poker with me?
