the idiot bush, attempting to deflect attention from his treasonous henchman karl rove, today accelerated the selection of a supreme court nominee to replace sandra day o'connor.
so over the next few days/weeks we'll be overwhelmed with rhetoric about the suitability of the nominee, and, in theory, rove's outing of a cia agent will fade to black.
before that happens, let's look back to 2001 when the idiot bush was babbling about the level of discourse in his administration:
"[W]e must remember the high standards that come with high office. This begins with careful adherence to the rules. I expect every member of this administration to stay well within the boundaries that define legal and ethical conduct. This means avoiding even the appearance of problems. This means checking and, if need be, doublechecking that the rules have been obeyed. This means never compromising those rules."karl rove, the president's brain, blew the cover of a cia agent for political gain.
now, through administrative and procedural sleight of hand, the president would like everyone to forget this fact.
the president, therefore, is at the very least an accessory to treason.
