The Friday ‘BushWhack’ing

It’s Friday, ‘nuff said.

  • The Alberto Gonzales Affair (aka; AttorneyGate) is not going away as FBI director Robert Mueller told Congress yesterday that the surveillance program was subject of debate within the Bush(whacked) administration, which directly contradicted Gonzales’ earlier testimony. (The fact that Bush continues to stand behind Gonzales shows just how little regard he has not only for the law, but for Congress and, in a broader spectrum; the country. As I’ve said before; Gonzo needs to go-zo. The sooner, the better)
  • Forcing White House COS Josh Bolten and former counsel Harriet Miers to talk may be more difficult than Congress expected…but then again, maybe not… but then again, it may be… but then again… well, you get the idea. This isn’t going to be resolved quickly, so stay tuned…
  • It seems like the Democrat presidential campaign has officially started as Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) have started arguing about a fleeting debate question… that has so-far culminated in Mr. Obama saying that Ms. Clinton’s position on meeting with the leaders of hostile states is like that of “President” Bush and “Vice” President Cheney… (So in other words, they’re sniping at each other rather than sniping at the republican candidates. Though comparing her to the Bush-Dicks has to hurt…)
  • Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is still trying to appease Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) after Pentagon policy chief Eric Edelman harshly criticized Ms. Clinton’s after she wrote a letter asking Mr. Gates for a briefing of troop withdrawal plans and Edelman sent a letter accusing her of reinforcing "enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies" by discussing a timetable for withdrawal. In his attempts to spin he has said that he is personally engaged in the development of drawdown plans… he then went on to say that those efforts constitute a "priority" for the Pentagon… (My question is; did anyone tell the White House that this was a priority? Cuz it sounds as if they’re planning on keeping an eternal presence in Iraq…)
  • And have we mentioned? That republicans in the beltway are scared shitless worried (as they should be) that their political fortunes haven't changed one iota since last years mid-terms and that they could lose “even more seats” as well as the White House… (Wow… it’s hard to stifle my Emperor Palpatine laugh on this one… but we must exercise caution… lest we screw ourselves out of these opportunities that I think are highly possible… and likely…)
