I remember the day after the 04 election, you told me that the scandals would overwhelm the administration even without any Dems making it happen, and I didn't believe you.
Hats off, man.
Your devoted blogger always appreciates being told that he's right about something. In fact, being right may be his greatest pleasure in life. And there's some worthy competition for that #1 spot.
Here's one more for you, and by now it may not be a surprising prophecy:
If and when the truth ever comes out about all of the dirty dealings of the BushCheneyCo Administration, if will be worse, much much worse, than anything that you currently imagine.
For example, from MyDD.com's February 6th post, "Bush Is Spying on His Political Opponents", with examples for each:
Bush Administration uses U.S. Army to spy on war critics.
Bush Administration uses FBI to spy on war critics.
Bush Administration forced to turn over records revealing FBI is spying on Bush critics.
Bush Administration uses Pentagon to spy on Bush critics.
The Bush Administration may have wiretapped a CNN reporter.
And best of all, Dick Cheney's new man slated to run the Central Intelligence Agency:
Gen. Michael Hayden refused to answer question about spying on political enemies at National Press Club. At a public appearance, Bush's pointman in the Office of National Intelligence was asked if the NSA was wiretapping Bush's political enemies. When Hayden dodged the question, the questioner repeated, "No, I asked, are you targeting us and people who politically oppose the Bush government, the Bush administration? Not a fishing net, but are you targeting specifically political opponents of the Bush administration?" Hayden looked at the questioner, and after a silence called on a different questioner. (Hayden National Press Club remarks, 1/23/06)
Remember, this last one like the others is from early February, so it's not like some sudden hatchet job on Gen. Hayden. The guy is part of the whole machinery -- in the lead up to BushCheneyCo screwing the U.S. into an upcoming, pre-election October Surprise war with Iran.
It's especially imperative for the Admin to shift attention as an actual sex scandal starts raining down. Have to stop what Steve Gilliard calls the scandal free fall.
These crooks and liars will stop at nothing to keep these scandals from toppling them, no matter my kindly noted prediction back in November 2004, even if it means ginning up World War III.
Like I said, much, much worse.
