Loose Lips Sink Chimps

From The Associated Press:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former White House press secretary Scott McClellan blames President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for efforts to mislead the public about the role of White House aides in leaking the identity of a CIA operative.

Uh-oh! This can mean only one thing. Scotty’s got himself a new nickname!!!

Frances the Talking Tool

Or maybe the walking tool.
From Fran Townsend’s resignation note:

In 1937, the playwright Maxwell Anderson wrote of President George Washington: There are some men who lift the age they inhabit, til all men walk on higher ground in their lifetime.

When Push Polling Comes to Shove

From the Chicago Tribune:

CONCORD, N.H. – The GOP presidential campaigns of Mitt Romney and John McCain — rocked in different ways by a highly negative “push poll” targeting Romney’s Mormon faith — demanded Friday that the New Hampshire attorney general investigate who is behind the tactic.

The attorney general’s office said it was investigating the phone calls.

From the Washington Post:

Before deciding to run for president, Rudy Giuliani might have consulted the late William Faulkner, who studiously said, “The past is not dead. In fact, it’s not even past.” If America’s mayor didn’t know that before, he certainly knows it now.

They keep coming, don’t they? Those hauntings from the past. First, his friend and former police commissioner Bernard Kerik was hit with a 16-count indictment last week on various charges of corruption and mail and tax fraud. Then, this week comes Judith Regan, once a Kerik mistress and former publisher of ReganBooks, claiming in a lawsuit that two executives at her imprint’s parent company, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., told her to lie when investigators questioned her about Kerik. The lies, she says, were meant to protect Giuliani’s presidential bid.

Fussbudget

From The Examiner:

WASHINGTON (Map, News) – Since January, President Bush has been publicly condemning Congress for what he describes as wasteful spending on “earmarks,” money for projects back home that lawmakers insert into spending bills.

But presidents, including Bush, play the earmark game, too. Bush stuffs his budget with billions for pet projects very much like the ones he attacks when they originate on Capitol Hill, according to taxpayer groups and members of Congress.

An Excellent Question

From The New York Times:

When presidential candidates appear at public forums, passions about the field are often on vivid display. Monday, Senator John McCain received a question from a woman in Hilton Head Island, S.C., that was blunt and harsh.

“How do we beat the bitch?” the woman asked.

The Watering ***hole

From Time Online:

Faced with the worst drought in 100 years, a US governor called on the ultimate authority for help yesterday: he held a public prayer vigil and asked God for rain.

Sonny Perdue, the Governor of Georgia, where the capital city, Atlanta, is less than four months from running dry, gathered on the steps of the state capitol with other politicians and called on the Lord to open up the heavens.

Yeah, that oughta do it…
