Drip, drip, drip

Hmm, let's see, now, what's going on in the world today. Just a few random stories in the Times.

We have indicted lobbyist Jack Abamoff telling a magazine editor that, contrary to George Bush's insistence that he had never really met Abamoff, Bush had in fact met him many times, and had even invited him to his Texas ranch.

We have the former head of FEMA, Michael (“Heckuva Job Brownie”) Brown testifying to Congress that despite White House claims it was never alerted to the seriousness of the flooding in New Orleans, “he let senior White House staffers know as soon as he had heard that flooding had begun in New Orleans on the day Hurricane Katrina made landfall. Mr. Brown also called claims by top officials at the Department of Homeland Security that they weren't aware of levee breaches until the next day 'just baloney.'"

We have indicted Cheney aide “Scooter” Libby, testifying to a Grand Jury he was authorized by his "superiors" to disclose classified information to reporters about Iraq's weapons capability in June and July 2003.

And, just for bonus fun points, that little weaselly press aide from NASA, (a former Bush campaign worker no less), who was fired from the space agency after it was discovered he had lied about graduating from college, and who was caught trying to limit a top scientist's access to the press because he was daring to voice concerns about global warming - now saying it was all just a big, big misunderstanding. He had really only “forgotten” to update his resume.

Just another day in Bush-land.

Wow, you can get a job with NASA, in a position such as Deutsch's, WITHOUT a college degree?! They'll really hire you without one? Maybe I'll get lucky, and a hospital will hire me before I get my RN! Yee-ha!

"Random"? You took every single negative story you could find. Of course thats the only type of story the New York Tines prints about out president. Oh wait. I forgot. There is no liberal media! HAHAHAHA

Yes, the same liberal media that wrote every gory detail about Clinton getting it on with Lewinsky. They report the mistakes on both liberals and conservatives.

Bally the media is anti whoever is in power not anti one party or the other. And that's probably the way it should be.
