The Thursday ‘BushWhack’ing

  • Two of “President” Bush’s aides have been subpoenaed for… wait for it… AttorneyGate. Former White House counsel Harriet Miers and Sara Taylor, a former White House political director were served earlier this week in order to determine how involved they were in the firing of nine US Attorneys… (Will these illicit damaging feedback like that of Monica Goodling & Kyle Sampson or will they sneak out of it in some way? Stay tuned to AttorneyGate or… ‘The Story That Won’t Die No Matter How Badly The White House Wants It To’ to find out)
  • Hillary Clinton (D-NY) received the endorsement of Hollywood filmmaker Steven Spielberg, which some people are saying indicates that Hollywood is getting off the Obama bandwagon… (and we should care about this becauuuuuuuuuuuuuuusee??)
  • “President” Bush has named Edward Gillespie as his replacement for outgoing WH counselor Dan Bartlet. And his choice is an experienced and qualified non-partisan attorney… (just kidding, it’s ANOTHER BushCrony who has a vast lobbying history and is a former RNC Chairman. You’re shocked, I know…)
  • According to a new NBC/WSJ poll 19% of Americans think the country is on the right track. I want to know who these 19% are and ask them one single question; what color is the sky in your world?
  • The Pentagon is reporting that violence in Iraq rose in the months of March, April & May. Seems the “surge” IS quelling violence a little in Baghdad… the only problem is that the “surge” has pushed the insurgents into other areas that were more peaceful before the U.S. military “surge”…(Sigh...)
  • The FBI has discovered that they often broke rules in their data collection… (I am shocked… shocked to find gambling in this establishment... uh-huh…). It seems that while collecting data about domestic phone calls, e-mails and financial transactions in recent years the bureau violated the law more than 1,000 times. The audit that discovered this covered a scant 10% their national security investigations since 2002... meaning that there are probably a LOT more law violations that have not yet been found... (I don't even know where to begin...)
  • And have we mentioned? That the judge presiding over the Scooter Libby trial is scheduled to decide today whether Vice President Dick “President” Cheney's former chief of staff must report to prison within weeks or can remain free pending his appeal. If Judge Walton orders him to report to prison sooner rather than later, you’re going to hear the calls for his pardon grow louder and louder. As of right now it’s 50-50 as to what the judge will decide. Stay tuned…
