An Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the Imperium Americanum

Hey, I put my shoes out for St. Nicholas–and they NEVER RETURNED!

Two Shoes that Shook the World

Why does democracy mean that people hate me?

Size 10, Bush cracked…how soon has he forgotten that when Saddam’s statue was toppled, the Iraqis came up and beat on it with their shoes? This is the way of democracy, he said. If so, why have the Iraqis turned al-Zeidi over to the military police for interrogation? Would it hurt Bush to say to al-Maliki–hey, don’t torture him, it’ll look bad for me and worse for you? Well, yes, it would, because Bush is a sick man. It took an Iraqi to do what many Americans felt like doing, what Nancy Pelosi ought to have done by initiating impeachment, telling Bush to his face just how low a scumbag he really is. It’s the best Christmas present the world has gotten in years. Too bad the man who did it is going to suffer for the actions no one else had the balls to do.

(WashPost) Rove Will Not Be Charged In CIA Leak Case, Lawyer Says

(WashPost/AP) AP Blog: Bush Visit Shocks Iraq Reporters

(WashPost/Reuters) Clashes, car bomb as Iraq launches Baghdad sweep

Well, there you have it…another Karl Rove engineered leak. This article: (Truthout) Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators was the talk of the blogosphere a month ago. Everyone kept waiting and waiting for Rove to finally get a comuppance, but as more and more time went by, the less likely it looked that it would happen. Now it’s official. Whenever there’s a leak regarding Karl Rove, the safest assumption is that the source of the leak is Karl himself and the question always is, what strategem is he playing? This time, I think he was trying to force the issue of indictment or non-indictment. If indictment, then he could operate without the THREAT of indictment over his head. If non-indictment, he could spin it so he would appear truthful. In fact, that’s exactly how Pete Yost (AP Analysis: Telling FBI the Truth Saved Rove) is reporting it. We here at HAIL DUBYUS! were dubious about the indictment story to start with. In the meantime, El Presidente zipped into Baghdad, told the puppet al-Maliki we were standing behind him, took a few photos and zipped out again. If you blinked, you missed it.
