Culture of Corruption and Lies

You know what a hosser is, Frank? It's a pig that don't fly straight, and neither do you.
Tony Montana Scarface 1983

Well, the news is uncovering the lying and intentional falsehoods around Pat Tillman's death by friendly fire.

Quoting his brother, Kevin Tillman, "It’s a little disingenuous to think the administration didn’t know."

This is nothing. Consider our Attorney General's take on Habeas Corpus and his testimony last week, where he ingeniously states that although he doesn't recall a damned thing, he is completely certain that everything was done right. We are living in unprecedented times, and I think the container is beginning to show cracks, and of course the Abramoff ball keeps rolling, while Tom Delay, beacon of patriotism and serving the public good, has written a book where he alleges liberals have treated him the way that Hitler and the Nazis treated the world.

Oh really? Now we have Delay, shining example of ethical fortitude, firing off additional allegations that Reid and Pelosi are very close to TREASON.

The spiraling expenditures of the Iraq and Afghanistan fiasco and the vast sums of money funneled to selected insiders (oil & pharma gods, for a start) will fuel extraordinary pressure to understand what has happened and what is happening, and when this president is no longer in office, the fear of him will dramatically decline, especially if a democrat prevails. Even if a republican prevails, I think the current tide is shifting blue, and blue will muster what it takes to uncover the rocks, and there is a lot under those rocks.

A man who's not his word is a cockroach.
Tony Montana, Scarface 1983

The White House, and perhaps even our entire federal government, has never been more infested.

I thought Republicans, such as DeLay, were supposed to be against a culture of 'victimhood'?

I guess, like in many things, that only applies to others. It's ok if they do it.

Of course you are right, maybe more right than you say here.

After Bush leaves, there will be a lot of questions asked, a lot more than now. Lies upon lies will come out.

I don't know the rules about pardoning people. Can Bush just pardon his entire administration and all of the republicans in congress?

Can he pardon himself?

If the whole truth were known, hundreds would go to jail.

Sirocco, you are also right. None of the rules that apply to the rest of us apply to Delay or Cheney or any of them. They get to do whatever we want.

Like x4mr said sometime ago, they think they are kings and we are subjects.

I meant to say, "They get to do whatever THEY want."

Obviously, what we want isn't even considered.

Didn't you know that disagreement with King George is treason?

Off with their heads!
