Exonerated? Does Sarah Palin even know what that means? Or maybe she thinks that people are talking about that white-wash “report” the RNC put out? (AP) Palin pre-empts state report, clears self in probe Clearing yourself of wrongdoing is like forgiving yourself for hurting someone…it doesn’t really mean a helluva lot. (Reuters) Palin says report says she acted lawfully. In other words, she had the power to fire someone, but “The investigator wrote in the report that, `I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating” a statute of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act, which bars any official action to benefit a personal interest. Violation of the ethics act could result in sanctions, including up to $5,000 in civil fines by a state ethics board, according to the law.” I guess unless you’re found guilty of a CRIME, Sarah Palin would say you were exonerated completely, since it was only a civil, not a criminal offense. I’m beginning to think that some of these politicians really do need a good whuppin’ from their parents. They obviously didn’t get one while they were brats…

It was obviously politically motivated — hoo boy!

Well, the State of the Union speech couldn’t have contained ALL lies, now could it? (Cynics!) With apologies to Robert Palmer, here are the verses I didn’t have room for on the cartoon:

You see the signs that you won’t read
You’re driving at a racecar speed
Your engine runs on premium
Another buck for the Saud sheikdom
Your mind is numb, you can’t be saved
Another gallon is all you crave
If there’s some left for you to burn
Here’s a match now take your turn

Your lights are on but you’re not at home
Your will is not your own
Your heart is chilled, your teeth a chatter
Another well and it won’t matter
Whoa! you wonder how you got embroiled, oh yeah
for its embrace you’ll forever toil
You know you’re gonna have to face it

Of course, “One day after President Bush vowed to reduce America’s dependence on Middle East oil by cutting imports from there 75 percent by 2025, his energy secretary and national economic adviser said Wednesday that the president didn’t mean it literally.” (KnightRidder) Administration Backs Off Bush’s Vow to Reduce Mideast Oil Imports. Paul Krugman in (NYTimes) State of Delusion suggests: “Why announce impressive sounding goals when you have no plan to achieve them? The best guess is that the energy “plan” was hastily thrown together to give Mr. Bush something positive to say.” So while His Mendacity WASN’T lying about our addiction, He WAS lying about any desire to do something about it…
