Rove Almost under Citizen's Arrest
Bush Collector's Items
It has not gone unnoticed by some that I had yet to post about the Iraq war today. I wanted to think about what I wanted to write, I am still so angry about this war that my words seem stuck, but this is just a sliver of how I feel.
Shock -- we went there and are still there, our young are dying
Awe -- that the crooks in charge lied to us about why, that some Americans still think this okay
Politicians Make Bad Bedfellow Choices
Obviously, the Internet is full of people talking about NY Governor Eliot Spitzer and his inability to keep his pants zipped. I read a great post over at If I Ran the Zoo along with one by Lance Mannion, too. It made me want to write a bit about the subject myself.
My first thought is that if I were his wife, I would be pissed about how much money he spent. Don't they have three daughters to cloth, feed and educate? What message is he sending to his three daughters? (I am sure that when we was getting serviced, he didn't think about them.) How do they feel having to go to school or anywhere else for that matter?
As Steve, pointed out there was no IF in Spitzer's statement, no real apology either. It should be about ideas he says. Yes, well, it should be, but it is more than that. He transported money and a hooker across state lines which is a felony. He is guilty, he should resign and pay for his crime.
Mr. Spitzer, you cannot be perceived at righteous, tilting at windmills and chasing down the flaws at everyone else and not expect to have people out to get you. You have chased after some of the most powerful men in the US, did you honestly think that they would not lie in wait for you?
Please, they were wishing and hoping and praying for you to make a mistake. You did, you made a big one. You got caught, don't be surprised, take it like a man.

Tricky Dick Cheney Goes Confederate
The Grim Veeper decided to day a long hunting trip yesterday. He went to the exclusive Clove Valley Rod and Gun Club (it is tax exempt) in upstate New York. You must be a member or the guest of a member. It is said that a membership costs thousands of dollars per year. Disgusting, but not offensive, right? Elitist, yes.
There is of course a catch. Here is the appalling part:
There is a Confederate flag hanging in the garage of the club. He claims that he did not see it, furthermore, he claims that nobody in his party saw it, either. Wow, everyone needs their eyes checked.
Another reason to add the list of why I hate this administration. They are crooks, liars and hate mongers.
Clear Channel Clearly Sucks
Rush Limbaugh needs to shut his pie hole. Seriously. More importantly, he needs to do some actual research instead of just making up facts or using his twisted views as facts. This also goes for the dumb asses who listen to the crap and hate that he spews on a daily basis.
The other day the airbag said that the Democrats and liberals use "phony soldiers" when the need strikes them to criticize the war. Yea, that is it, that is what we all do.
Well, several reps were outraged and wrote a letter to the CEO of Clear Channel. His response?
Mark Mays, CEO of Clear Channel Communications Inc., wrote a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, saying, "Over the years Mr. Limbaugh has repeatedly praised the dedication and valor of our brave men and women in uniform.
"Given Mr. Limbaugh's history of support for our soldiers, it would be unfair for me to assume his statements were intended to personally indict combat soldiers simply because they didn't share his own beliefs regarding the war in Iraq."

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) released its third annual report on the most corrupt members of Congress entitled Beyond DeLay: The 22 Most Corrupt Members of Congress (and two to watch). This encyclopedic report on corruption in the 110th Congress documents the egregious, unethical and possibly illegal activities of the most tainted members of Congress. CREW has compiled the members’ transgressions and analyzed them in light of federal laws and congressional rules.
Sixteen members have been replaced from last year’s list of 25.
Check out Beyond Delay which offers short summaries of each member’s transgressions as well as the full-length profiles and all accompanying exhibits.

David Vitter Equals Hypocrite
David Vitter is a conservative US Senator who hails from Louisiana. He campaigned on conservative, family values and shit. He is of course a lying, hypocritical liar. Shocker! A Republican who can't keep it in his pants, but points the finger at others.
Luckily, blogenfreude has chronicled the entire disaster. Moral majority, my ass. Don't these people work?
Gonzales is Audi 5000
Crook General Alberto Gonzales has announced his resignation today. He just can't get past his role in the firing of the Federal prosecutors as well as being Buhie's mouthpiece. Perhaps, this will begin to lift the tarnish that he has levied upon the Department of Justice. His last day will be September 17. It can't come fast enough as far as I am concerned.
