Monica Goodling in Her Own Words

Okay, a few of my words, too. While I have not yet seen the testimony, I have seen snippets and have read the press reports. Ms Goodling was dressed appropriately for her testimony in front of the House Judiciary committee. She wanted the country to see her as she sees herself:
Here are a few selected tidbits from her testimony:

The person that I read about on the Internet and in the newspaper is not me. At heart, I’m a fairly quiet person. I try to do the right thing, and I try to treat people kindly along the way.

I do acknowledge that I may have gone too far in asking political questions of applicants for career positions, and I may have taken inappropriate political considerations into account on some occasions, and I regret those mistakes.

I don’t believe I intended to commit a crime.

I know I crossed the line of civil service rules. I didn’t mean to.

I believe I crossed the line, but I didn’t mean to.

I don’t know if this is a route that I would have decided to go down if it were up to me.

I can’t give you the whole White House story.

Okay, that’s it. I completely forgive her. She didn’t intend to commit a crime, so why should she be punished? Paris Hilton didn’t intend to commit a crime either, but she has to go to Barbie jail. I am starting a petition to get all brainless bimbos out of jail for committing crimes by accident.
I leave you with more words from poor, sweet Monica. They are from her college webpage:

Hi. My name is Monica Goodling,
and I’m a student at Regent University,
in Virginia Beach.
If I only had two seconds to tell you why I’m here,
I’d have to say this: I want to leave the world a better place than I found it. Tough assignment, but, worth a try.

    “I don’t know if this is a route that I would have decided to go down if it were up to me.”

    so who decided this route for her?could it have been … oh, I don’t…maybe…KARL ROVE?

    in this photo doesn’t our harpy in training look like a younger, healthier Ann Coulter?

    hiya foxy!!
    now that you mention it, there is a resemblance to she who will not be named.
    i am so thrilled to have new pictures of monica to use. i just posted a new movie poster. i can’t wait to see what happens next in gonzogate. i am hoping that whatever it is, it will include arrest warrants and orange jumpsuits.

    Shackles compliment an orange jumpsuit quite nicely.

    Are you as frustrated as I am with our toothless, spineless jellyfish Dems in the congress? Presidential veto power, slim majority or not… just make a stand!!! Impeach the Gonz, pull immunity out from under Monica “Valley Girl” Goodling…ugh!!!

    if halliburton was in the business of manufacturing shackles, there would be a lot of them in jail already.
    frustrated does not cover how i am feeling. make chimpy veto the bill and others just like it a thousand times! let people see him as the obstructionist. i am trying hard to only bash rethugs here, but the dems are making it very hard for me to stick to that mindset.

    I guess you were so concerned with trying to add your own clever $.02 that you missed these last two statements. What I’m wondering is, what WAS the White House story???

  6. what’s your point, greg? this post is from may of 2007. an awful lot has come out since then. exactly what is your clever 2¢ now that monica has admitted that she broke the rules of the federal government and the inspector general has declared that she broke federal rules and civil law?
