Chimpster should start wearing a lapel pin with a flip flop on it:
President George W. Bush gave trusted aide Karl Rove some added job security yesterday by shifting his stance on when he would fire White House staff in the leak of a covert CIA officer's identity -- now signaling that the person must have broken the law to get the ax.Well it comes as no surprise that chimpy would defend turdblossom. It wouldn't surprise me that if, by some miracle, old turdy was indicted and convicted that chimpy would pardon him anyway.
In the past, Bush said merely revealing the officer's identity would be enough to get someone fired from the White House.
"If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration," Bush said at a news conference yesterday. He declined to discuss the matter further, citing the ongoing investigation, and didn't answer a specific question about Rove. (newsday)
The more I read about this stuff, the more disgusted I become... especially when I think back to the Lewinsky scandal and the giant circle jerk in the Senate while they read the Starr Report. This news doesn't involve sex, so the Republican politicians aren't really all that interested in it. Treason? Ha. Where's the dirty part? Ask Jeff Gannon.
