Barbarism begins her reign by banishing the Muses - Earl of Chesterfield
The White House (READ: Karl Rove) and the Justice Department just came up with a new way to keep Monica Goodling from testifying before Congress. They have decided to make her into a criminal and thus negate any benefits of an immunity deal Ms. Goodling might have benefited from.
We have seen this tactic before when they threw Scooter Libby to the wolves to protect Karl Rove. Everyone except Karl, Dick, and Alberto is expendable in this fight to keep politics as the number one deciding factor for every single decision the Bush Administration makes. It does not matter if the careers of good hard-working people are trashed, just let us keep every unqualified crony that remains loyal to the war, torture chambers and all. Loyal Bushies are to be protected even if it means outing a CIA agent or the deaths of thousands of soldiers and hundreds of thousands of people in the Middle East.
Heckuva Job, Georgie!
There is no justice left in the Justice Department, just as there is no constitution left in U.S. Constitution. No trial by jury or habeas corpus; cruel, unusual punishment and secret concentration camps are what America now stands for. Everybody in the world can see the corrupt new America plain as day, everyone expect the deluded U.S. President and his shameful cohorts in crime.
