  •  Did anyone see his buddy routine today? (none)
    It was strange; he went off on a tangent about "how nothing said in this room is personal.. we're just doing our jobs. We've all gotten to know each other over the years, like friends..." I paraphrase, but the tone was creepy.

    It felt like he was asking up front for mercy when the indictments come, or he knows they are coming and today's briefing may be the last one before the shit hits the fan.

    Anyone else find his little speech strange?

    •  haven't read it but (none)
      it's probably a little damage control after the moshing the other day. Because he probably senses that things are not about to calm down soon.

      •  Libby will rue the day (none)
        he ever put those words on paper. I crack up everytime I read them. They will forever be embedded in his name like "Tricky Dick Nixon" -- (well at least in my mind they will.)

    •  Like a dog that realizes (none)
      it has lost the fight, they are rolling over and showing their bellies and begging for mercy.

      If what has gone on were only political I'd show them mercy. But it ain't. It's criminal. Capital crimes, felonies, treason. That is what we're looking at. It will not go away.

      Thousands are dead in Iraq, billions have been given to corrupt corporations by corrupt politicians who are deeply in bed with them to the point that our politicians are merely talking heads for corporate interests, so of course they've passed numerous laws to corporate advantage and national disadvantage. They have raped and plundered our society for the last  five years.

      They shall be treated accordingly.

      •  If you wanted to, you could (none)
        execute every Republican, and crime would go down.

        •  I didn't think it was funny (none)
          when Bennett said it either. And the snark value of that is just about shot.

          Let's get our acts together, folks. There are people around the world who are dying, and more who will be, unless we get our shit together. I've been acting the smartass for several days now, so I'll start with my own shit. But start I will.
