government in action
Gotta love it.
Especially when government uses our legal system to
PERSECUTE prosecute an innocent man, when government has no case, but the witch-burner lawyer self-aggrandizes for a couple of years, spending TONS of taxpayer dollars to show his ass, like a performing seal bouncing a ball on its nose in a circus.
People like Patrick Fitzgerald disgust me. They have less integrity but more stealth and sneakiness than a palmetto bug, and they believe that they're worth a lot more than they really are. If I could buy Fitzgerald for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth, I'd be forever rich. In MY humble opinion, he's a real shitass.
But he's got POWER. GOVERNMENT POWER!!!
And, like a porch light in the dark, that power-glow tends to attract a lot of really ugly creatures.
(UPDATE: Howard Dean,
raving lunatic thoughtful man that he is, has a different opinion. Gawd! I hope so. If I agreed with Howard, I would worry about my sanity more than I already do.)
"If I could buy *xxxxx* for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth, I'd be forever rich. "
I was brought up on that phrase and it still rings true. In the face of the complete lack of humility displayed by most public figures today it ought to be chisled into the Washington Monument or headlined on USA Today, in perpetuity.
I'll bet I could get Ted Kennedy for a dime, for example . . .
Dean is in trouble with his left wing base of the dim-a-crit party and he is doing his damnest to get them to rally around him. The donks still have not come up with any new ideas..just more of the same old hate Bush hate America bull shit.
Y'all gonna hate me for saying this but I didn't spend 18 years in the law without getting cynical. I never really believed Rove would get indicted but you don't get called before a grand jury 5 farookin times because you got nothing interesting to say.
The case is now about Scooter Libby and it's a long way from over. Trial don't start until 2007. It's going to be a long wait but mark my words tonight. I think Rove rolled, certainly on LIbby and probably on Cheney.
Rove is guilty as shit and the only reason his sorry ass is off the hook is because his buddy Bush told the prosecutor to back off. They knew it was a waste of time anyway. Bush would only pardon the piece of scum if he went to prison. Kennedy may have driven drunk (which is no more than what Gutrumbles has done on many occasions), but Rove has caused so many good American soldiers' deaths due to his influence on foreign policy and his creation of a monster politician in George W. Bush. But the sweet justice lies in knowing that Rove and Bush will get their due before it's all done. Those two, along with the whole bunch of corrupt scum leading this country now will eventually fall in a hard way.
...you don't get called before a grand jury 5 farookin times because you got nothing interesting to say.
Fitzgerald never could find anything to indict anybody on that had to do directly with the allegation of "outing" a CIA "agent." He kept calling people to the grand jury because as he attacked the huge pile of manure in the barn he was absolutely positive there had to be a horse in there somewhere.
I say Libby walks and Fitzgerald ends up looking like a damn fool. And it's no surprise that people who were so sure Rove "did it" are now turning their attention on Cheney, since they've been alternating between Rove and Cheney being the "mastermind" behind stupid ol' Dubya for years.
I'm not making any judgments about guilt or innocence, not having seen the evidence in the case McGehee. I'm just making a prediction based on what I've observed about the way the case is unfolding.
I figure months from now when it comes out Rove sold out Libby, that some people will remember I was first to predict it here and be amazed at my clairvoyance....;-}
