"The difference between our decadence
and the Russians' is that while theirs is
brutal, ours is apathetic." - James Thurber
Bush's final press conference on Monday only 35 reporters
showed up, well short of capacity. I'm guessing there was
more important news to cover that day, like that two-headed
goat over at
Trying to save a little face the White House quickly ordered
its interns to fill the extra seats and pad the standing-room
Showing his usual grace and aplomb the cheesy little quisling,
his W-ness, neglected to call on Helen Thomas for a question....
again. May he rot in hell, the gutless wiener.
As he left the podium the press mostly yawned and headed
for the buffet. I've posted a youtube video of those hilariously
fitting few seconds below. I will cherish this moment always.
As revealed in the
recent Department of Justice report Bradley Schlozman, Karl
Rove's protegee, succubus and part-time stand-in double, lied
through his teeth to Congress when he said he had no idea that
DOJ was being packed with Republican operatives.
Lying to Congress
is a serious offense, unless you work for the Bush administration.
As you might expect no charges were filed. (Time will tell,
I only bring this up
because of a Schlozman email that surfaced in which he referred to these
new hires as "ideological comrades".
That's right, "comrades".
Pass the vodka, baby.
