If it Looks Like a Duck, Walks Like A Duck, Sounds Like a Duck….

….it’s probably an idiot quacking along with his idiot friends!

From the Alaska Report:

Washington, DC – New Mexico GOP Senator Pete Domenici has joined a chorus of Republicans and Democrats calling for a change of President Bush’s failed policy in Iraq, making him the third veteran Republican to break ranks with President Bush over the issue in the last two weeks.
…snip…
Republican Sens. Dick Lugar of Indiana and George Voinovich of Ohio have also recently called for a change of policy in Iraq.

So Many Scandals, So Little Time….

Move over Irving-Scooter-Libby-Commutationgate. Time to turn our attention back to Gonzogate once again!! You didn’t think we forgot ya, did ya, Al Fredo? Never!

Washington, D.C. (AHN) – U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy is poised to bring contempt charges against the White House, the Vice President’s office and the U.S. Department of Justice if they flout the subpoena that the Senate Judiciary Committee issued last week.

Leahy, a Vermont Democrat and chairman of the powerful committee, is leading the Senate investigation into the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, which critics say were politically motivated.

Speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Leahy said, “They have taken the attitude at the, at the White House that somehow they’re above the law….That’s a Nixonian attitude, and it’s wrong.”

To the tune of She’s a Lady written by Paul Anka (Who knew?):

Well, we won’t be nonchalant,
These are not the guys we want, this bunch of losers,
So let’s put them in their place,
They’re a national disgrace, liars, abusers.

Patrick Leahy, whoa, whoa, whoa, Patrick Leahy,
All my hopes lie with Patrick Leahy, Patrick Leahy’s so fine.

I Don’t Know what “Arkansan is for Chutzpah”…..

…but I can smell bullshit a mile away!
Read the transcript of today’s Tony Snow presser. It’s at TPM Muckraker.

REPORTER: Tony, why do you … in your op-ed today you brought up the Clinton pardons, as well. Do two wrongs make a right? Is that the idea, like if Clinton did wrong …

SNOW: Well, this is … no, this is not a wrong, but I think what is interesting is perhaps it was just because he was on his way out, but while there was a small flurry, there was not much investigation of it. Now you’ve got President Clinton and Senator Clinton out complaining about this, which, I got to tell you, I don’t know what our Arkansan is for chutzpah, but this is a gigantic case of it.

Complicit, Convicted, and Commuted (the Musical!)

To the tune of Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered Lyrics by Lorenz Hart, music by Richard Rodgers
If you would like to sing along with the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald, you can hear her version of the song here. (Don’t ask me what the video is about. I have no clue.)

It takes one whole quart of liquor,
For me to get any sleep,
Before I get even sicker,
Get rid of this creep.

Nothing but an impolite louse,
Let’s rid DC of his stink,
Since he’s living in the White House,
I haven’t slept a wink.

Vladimir and the Three Bushes

(CBS/AP) Russian President Vladimir Putin is in Maine, a houseguest at the Bush family home in Kennebunkport, Maine, enjoying the local seafood and blueberries and a speedboat ride with President Bush and Mr. Bush’s father, former President Bush.

Papa Bush told Georgie Bush that he has been such a good boy, listening to Uncle Dick Cheney, and making lots and lots of money for Papa Bush and his friends in the Carlyle Group, that he can have a sleepover!!! Georgie Bush was very excited, and he invited his friend Vlady. Papa Bush took Vlady for a helicopter ride. Georgie Bush had to stay home with Mama Bush. I bet he was disappointed he didn’t get to go in the helicopter, but Papa Bush made up for it by taking both boys for a speedboat ride.
After a big day of rides and of Georgie staring into Vlady’s eyes to see his soul, Georgie Bush and his friend Vlady were exhausted. I bet they didn’t even put up a fight when Mama Bush and Papa Bush tucked them into bed!
