IT'S IMPLOSION TIME, KIDDIES!
Just when you thought the muderous, half-witted little frat boy the American people stupidly sent to the White House six years ago couldn't possibly sink any lower, the hideous little bastard cheerfully lowers the bar yet again! Gee, aren't these interesting times? That's the beautiful thing about George W. Bush; say what you want about the disgusting little thug, he sure as hell isn't boring!
The latest outrage is just another drop in Bush's ethical tsunami: The House and Senate, in trying to get to the bottom of the question as to just who was responsible for the firings of seven U.S. attorneys, all but one of whom were described as stellar performers in their jobs, have pinpointed Karl Rove and Harriet Miers as being behind the dismissals. The legislators want the both of them to appear before the Senate, raise their right hands and testify under oath. The First Fool will have none of it (SURPRISE!) In an appearance before the press earlier this week he said that having any of his advisers testify in such a setting would seriously jeopardize his ability to get candid advice in the future.
Oh, Bullshit. Just how stupid does he think the American people are anyway? Oh, wait a minute....they elected him, didn't they?....Never mind.
As John W. Dean observed in his book, Worse Than Watergate, any person who does not want his or her council to the president made known to the public, is more-than-likely giving that president bad, possibly criminal advice.
The fact is this: Karl Rove is probably the most corrupt civil self-servant (Oooh! I just coined a phrase!) in American history. Going all the way back to his days in the early seventies as the head of the College Republicans, the man's record is absolutely littered with corruption and political mischief. Donald Segretti, the young lawyer who was eventually disbarred because of the dirty tricks he carried out on behalf of Richard Nixon during the campaign of 1972, was one of his early heroes. It's now obvious that at least one of the Attorneys in question, David Iglesius, was canned because he wasn't persecuting the Democrats. If you doubt that Rove was one of the instruments in the recent sackings, please bear in mind that in the 1990s he was behind the bogus criminal prosecutions of several Democratic operatives in Texas. For more on that subject, please read the book, Boy Genius, by Lou Dubose, Jan Reid and Carl Cannon. You can also purchase the excellent documentary, Bush's Brain. Of this I am absolutely certain: Rove, like Bush, will die in federal prison.
And as far as Harriet Miers is concerned, it's mind-numbing to think that the president of the United States actually nominated this mediocre, imbecilic woman for the Supreme Court. Fortunately she was rejected by the right wing! It's almost refreshing to see that they at least have some standards - as embarrassingly low as those standards may be. As it turns out of the seven attorneys fired, one seems to have been genuinely incompetent. Kevin V. Ryan's office was described as "the most fractured in the country". Ryan, who has been described as "a loyal Bush company man" was removed at the last minute by the Bush Mob and only because a federal judge complained directly to the White House and threatened to get the Congress involved
Expect a constitutional crisis in a matter of days - if it's not upon us already. Anyone who has bothered to pay attention to this appalling administration all these years has surely seen this coming. The Bush presidency is coming apart at the seams and - forgive the calumny on my part - it really is a lovely thing to behold. Is that a terrible, un-American thing to say? Not at all; in fact it's the most patriotic thing one could say under the circumstances. This is a corrupt group of people. They're inept - you want them to fail! You don't want them to do any more damage! The damage that they've already done to your once-great country is incalculable. You want them to be pushed into a situation where they are, for all intents and purposes, impotent. Believe me, we'll all be a whole lot safer as a result.
The end of the Bush era is upon us. The American people are angry and will soon demand that justice be served. And you thought that Nixon's downfall was fun to watch? Oh, brother!
Pray for peace.
