Scooter Libby: Worse Then Alger Hiss

Scooter Libby: Worse Then Alger Hiss
Republicans are always soft on crime... when its theirs

Old political axiom from Harry Truman: When your opponent is self-destructing, try not to get in the way.
New political axiom for the sleaziest administration on record: Kick 'em when they're down before they wiggle out of it.

If the ramifications weren't so serious, the news of the last few months would be fun to talk about.

Countering the GOP slime machine as best you can.Collapse )
George W. Bush just doesn't give a damn. He, and the idiot ideologues he surrounds himself with, are only in it for money and power. He doesn't care about -- isn't aware of -- the real problems facing the country. Anytime a real issue comes up, he just runs away, then lies about it.

With Judith Miller pretty much proving that journalism in any real sense is dead, it's up to us humorists to tell the real story, even if we have to do it from a rather odd perspective. The Onion has consistently skewered everyone and everything, and isn't about to take a threat lying down. A "real" story, from the CNN site: White House to Onion: Stop Using Seal. The Onion's response: Laura Bush: I Just Wish I Could Stop Shitting Blood. Was this a direct response to the bullying, uncaring Bush administration's un-American stomping on the First Amendment? I dunno, but more power to 'em.
