Scoundrel Time

we can smell the axe grinding on the mossy stone.
  • "Many men behave very decently, and through the whole of their lives avoid any considerable degree of blame, who yet, perhaps, never felt the sentiment upon the propriety of which we found our approbation of their conduct, but acted merely from a regard to what they saw were the established rules of behaviour." --Adam Smith, Theory of Moral Sentiments
  • "If the measuring line is true, then the wood will be straight, not because one makes a special effort, but because that which it is 'ruled' by makes it so. In the same way if the rule is sincere and upright, then honest officials will serve in his government and scoundrels will go into hiding, but if the ruler is not upright, then evil men will have their way and loyal men will retire to seclusion" --from Hui-nan Tzu
Nothing will be left in the White House but roaches and Dick Cheney

Let's count the number of impeachable offense the current administration has been proved guilty of. Um... well... er.... none. How about the number of attemps in the last month alone by Democrat backed attorneys to get a grand jury indictment against the administration, regardless of how many times their attempts have failed. Um.... well.... more than none. Let's not even compare this administration's impeachable offense to the last one. We all know how that went[perjury]. According to this entries title, the Clinton White House wouldn't even have a roach left inside, unless it was on a clip of course.

If, as the NYT says, Cheney "told aide of CIA officers, notes show," and if Cheney then told Fitzgerald during the Grand Jury testimony that he didn't, isn't that perjury?

And, if Libby stated to the federal grand jury that it didn't happen, isn't that perjury?

Bill Clinton was not convicted of perjury, as the Senators voted 55 not guilty to 45 guilty. He probably committed perjury, it's true, but he wasn't convicted.

Fitzgerald was appointed by Bush to be the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. Doesn't seem too much like a Democrat to me. Ronnie Earle may be a democrat, but he's convicted more democrats of fraud than republicans. Just because someone has a political identity doesn't make them a partisan hack
