It’s Official! We Have a Wiener!!

July 9 (Bloomberg) — President George W. Bush ordered two former aides not to answer questions from Congress about the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.
The White House conveyed the directive in letters to lawyers for former Counsel Harriet Miers and Sara Taylor, the ex-White House political director. Taylor is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in two days. White House Counsel Fred Fielding, Miers’s successor, also wrote to House and Senate lawmakers leading the congressional inquiry.

“The president feels compelled to assert executive privilege with respect to the testimony sought,” said Fielding’s letter to the lawmakers. He said he was informing attorneys for the two former aides “of his direction to Ms. Taylor and Mrs. Miers not to provide this testimony.”

The article continues….

In a July 7 letter to Leahy and Fielding, Taylor’s lawyer, W. Neil Eggleston, said his client was caught in an “unseemly tug of war” between Congress and the president.

“Absent direction from the White House,” Taylor, 32, would testify “without hesitation” about the firings, her lawyer wrote.

She faces “two untenable choices,” Eggleston wrote. “She can follow the president’s direction and face the possibility of a contempt sanction by the Senate” or put herself “at odds with the president” by cooperating with the congressional inquiry, her lawyer wrote.

Yep, the big bad macho brush-clearing Chimpy administration are afraid to allow their womenfolk to testify, leaving them open to contempt sanctions. Chimpy, Cheney, Rove, Al Fredo, and the rest of them sure know how to talk tough, but when push comes to shove, they hide behind a couple of skirts. Harriet is up to her eyeballs in corruption, but I almost feel sorry for Sara Taylor. Almost, but not quite.

    I don’t feel sorry for her. I’d like to see every one of the Bushies in a similar pickle — “Damned if you do and damned if you don’t! Just so long as they are damned!

    Great work again, nonnie. I especially like the “womenfolk” reference in regard to the movie you chose!

    i will feel sorry for her only when she shows up at the senate to testify, and then the white house shills start to denigrate her. is anyone purporting to be the preznit allowed to order someone not to testify in court or before the congress? don’t you still have the right to free speech when you work for the white house? she is not supposed to testify about anything that is important to national security. it’s not like she outed a spy or anything! i get the feeling that sara is still digesting her big glass of kool-aid, and her attorney figured out a way to make her seem more sympathetic. it’s probably just posturing. that’s all there seems to be in dc anymore. they talk the talk but never walk the walk.
    p.s. there just might be another installment of ‘sister sara’ tomorrow! there is a movie i have been saving that is perfect, and i might not be able to fight the temptation.

    Take a page from Mae West’s book, nonnie. “I always resist temptation, unless I can’t.”

    This administration does seem to tie a lot of ‘gals’ to the rail road tracks. Think the Chimp fancies himself a Dudley Doright kind of guy?

    didn’t dudley doright rescue the fair maidens? maybe chimpy is more like dud dowrong.

    Yeah, you’re right. Cheney is like Snydely Whiplash and the Chimp is just a dud.
