We have some more work to do on the Plame scandal. I know you thought we were over it. Now, y’all knew Bush and Cheney were behind it. I don’t think anyone would be surprised that this went all the way to the top. Libby took a digger for the team, hence Bush commuting the entire sentence. No surprises, not to me anyway.
The scandalous revelation now out is basically we have proof. Yup. They did it, they were behind it; Bush, Rove, Cheney. They did it. Says who? The President’s own former press secretary. Longtime Bush confidant and press secretary Scott McClellan has leaked his memoirs. Here, let me let him tell it:
“There was one problem. It was not true,” McClellan writes, according to a brief excerpt released Tuesday. “I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest-ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president’s chief of staff and the president himself.”
Ok, heavy stuff. How big is this scandal? It isn’t, and that is what is freaking me out. Well, you won’t find it on the AP wire, it isn’t in the Washington Post anywhere. Nowhere on the NY Times site, either. There is no mention on CNN, either. If it weren’t for the writers’ strike, we’d maybe have John Stewart on this. Someone has documented proof that the President of the United States was actively involved in perjury, to say the least. This isn’t news? Keep in mind, this transcript probably went through 20 lawyers at the publishers. They wouldn’t let a bomb like this fly for sport.
I thought the press was all a bunch of liberal softies. If so, wouldn’t they jump on this? Why isn’t this a bigger story? I also have to wonder how this got leaked the day before a four day weekend. That, sir, is how you bury a story. I am outraged with everyone, especially you! If you know my writing, you know I have asked for several years “when will you hold this President accountable for his misdeeds?” I ask you that again. I know Gonzo’s got my back, and Bicho will be in my house on this. My question is, when will the RJ Elliotts and Dave Nalles of the world say “enough is enough, I am tired of apologizing for this administration?”
In the interest of full and fair disclosure, Dave is our political editor here. So, that you are reading this shows he isn’t censoring us, and has always been fair to my consistently lefty rants.
Come on, America. How long are you going to look the other way? We proved to you he lied about WMDs and the yellow cake, we proved to you he lied about Iraq, we proved to you he lied about the Plame leak, and now we have proved to you there is a Nixonian cover up happening. Take charge, people. Take your country back. Please.
Two thirds of the country says we are heading in the wrong direction. That was the actual wording of a real poll. I can’t keep fighting for you, America. You have to prove to me you are worth fighting for.
