Fitzmas pretty much sucked.
It was like coming down on Christmas morning and getting clothes and books instead of cool toys.
Let’s face it, Rove won.
Fitzgerald had two years to nail these fuckers, and all he got was Libby.
Yes, Libby is a major player to those of us who live in Blogland. But to the overwhelming majority of this country, he is a “White House aide.”
This single indictment is eminently spinnable for the White House and its media lackeys. That's the absurd world we're living in.
Sure, Rove may not be totally off the hook, and Fitzgerald may get these bastards yet. But another month, six months, year, or two years of theorizing and speculation on how the jig is going to come up for BushCo sounds like hell to me.
Oh, that's right. I'm supposed to be patient.
Am I going to be asked to remain patient when these fucking pigs are into the seventh year of office?
God dammit, this was supposed to be the Big Blow.
I don’t know about you, but Fitzmas morning felt a hell of alot like the day after election 2004 to me — a kick in the gut, followed by nauseating despair.
I don’t have much more to say. Except this:
I don’t want to hear anymore bullshit about a White House “in crisis” or a Presidency “rocked by scandal.”
The last time I checked, these guys are still squatting firmly in the Oval Office. They probably celebrated Fitzmas as a huge victory, given what could have and should have happened. They’re probably laughing their asses off.
Rocked by scandal, indeed.
They're fucking bulletproof.
(Note: This post may be overly pessimistic. Fitzgerald may in fact deliver the goods. But I’ll believe it when I see it, and not a second before.)

I am swamped at work today! Dammit! I'll post later.

While we wait to open our Fitzmas presents, let’s review some of the gut-bustingly hilarious attempts by the Rethugs to minimize the coming explosion:
This is just a “coastal issue.” Middle America neither understands nor cares about the CIA leak investigation.
Bush officials simply got “tripped up” when testifying under oath to the grand jury. This explains the conflicting statements and timelines.
Perjury and obstruction of justice are mere legal “technicalities.” If Fitzgerald brings these types of charges, this will be another example of the “criminalization of politics.”
Feel free to add your own.
And try to be patient.
If we have to wait one more day, so be it. Let BushCo continue to sweat out the inevitable. And let the media continue to whip up the frenzy of anticipation.
Silent niiiiiight……Hoooooly niiiight……All is caaaalm……

This sucker is developing at breakneck speed. No sense in me providing links. This story is all over the place.

Just like when Clinton lied about a blow --

Maureen Dowd just buries the despicable traitorous power-sucking prostitute.
Once when I was covering the first Bush White House, I was in The Times's seat in the crowded White House press room, listening to an administration official's background briefing. Judy had moved on from her tempestuous tenure as a Washington editor to be a reporter based in New York, but she showed up at this national security affairs briefing.There’s much more, but that press room episode says so much about the petty little White House skank.
At first she leaned against the wall near where I was sitting, but I noticed that she seemed agitated about something. Midway through the briefing, she came over and whispered to me, "I think I should be sitting in the Times seat."
It was such an outrageous move, I could only laugh. I got up and stood in the back of the room, while Judy claimed what she felt was her rightful power perch.
Also, I think the Times should be shut down for what it has done.

In my profession, that’s a bullshit note you attach to your padded timesheet.
No blockbuster developments as of yet. I'll keep checking.
I'm guessing Fitzaclaus and his elfs have a very busy weekend ahead.

Is this a fucking joke?
Everyday brings us new joy.

Damn. No presents under the tree this morning.
This wait is agonizing. It's like that anxious feeling you get before a concert, when you're waiting for the house lights to go down and the show to begin.
Let's hope this performance has lots of sophisticated lights, pyrotechnics, and creatures.

You are a disgrace to your profession and a traitor.
Wipe that fucking smile off of your face.

Hunter from Daily Kos is angry again.
Okay, enough of the suspense and tantalizing teasers.
Let’s get this party started.

Quite possibly the lowest point in presidential history.

Oh, please Lord.

Monday mornings are tough. I hope this brightens things up for you.
There’s some good discussion in the comments to the post linked above about the implications of a Plame explosion for the Washington press corps. Remember, many of the elite ankle-grabbers — Russert and Matthews to name a few — were contacted by the White House leakers/traitors about Plame/Wilson, and consequently were called to testify in front of Fitzgerald’s grand jury. There’s speculation that this thing could not only bring down the White House, but it could also expose the whoring complicity of some of the biggest names and institutions in the mainstream media.
If that happens, I’ll have to rethink my position of the existence of God.

Jesus, how scary are these guys?
This is not the America of our birth.

Of course I am encouraged when I see ordinary people and members of the MSM waking up to what anyone with the intellectual capacity of a fourteen-year-old should have known before these fucks ever achieved office: that BushCo and the Republican Party are thoroughly corrupt, lying, incompetent scum.
(Mysteriously, this awakening still eludes the blind dolts of planet Sixhertz, who remain in the murky darkness that accompanies the affliction known as head-in-ass. Jesus, you guys are fucking thick. But I digrees.)
Anyway, the past five years have been surreal and sickening. That there has even been a debate about BushCo is a historical embarrassment. Watching David Brooks, Tom Friedman, or any number of “pundit-intellectuals” trying to nuance the Bush record has been beyond painful. Shit, if these people were transported back to Hitler’s Germany they’d probably attempt to drop a silver lining on that horror show.
So yeah, it’s good to see the awakening, but whatever caused it to take so long is unforgivable. You don’t get on the highway to get to the corner drug store. And you don’t spend five years giving the benefit of the doubt to the worst government in the history of this country.
These people should all be flogged for their stupidity/complicity.
Consider this post to be the blog equivalent of cocaine. Even though you know the burst of euphoria you feel after partaking will dissipate within a few minutes, you do it anyway because it feels so good.
Okay, here you go.
