Sssshhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dan Froomkin at the Washington Post:

An apparent lie by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales could be easily cleared up, White House spokesman Tony Snow says — but doing so would require discussing matters that must remain classified in order to protect national security.

Tony Snow in His Own Turds…I Mean Words

Faux News White House Press Secretary Tony Snow did quite a tap dance today while trying to defend Attorney General Alberto Gonazles. He said that Al Fredo did not lie about his visit to the ailing then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, but he can’t tell us how he didn’t lie because what was spoken about was classified. Huh? If it was classified, then didn’t Al Fredo and then-White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card break the law when they spoke about classified stuff in an unsecured hospital room? I’m confused, Tony!!

Lather, Rinse, Repeat….

From the Washington Post:

President Bush is a competitive guy. But this is one contest he would rather lose. With 18 months left in office, he is in the running for most unpopular president in the history of modern polling.

The latest Washington Post-ABC News survey shows that 65 percent of Americans disapprove of Bush’s job performance, matching his all-time low.

Oh, the stink of scandal in the morning!

Gangs are Roaming the Halls of Congress!!!!!!

Just when you think that things are bad in D.C., we find out it’s worse than we thought!! Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Well, I use the word testified loosely, as he mostly obfuscated and tried to dodge the questions. One area that the senators delved into was the Gonzales/Andrew Card visit to former Attorney General John “Make-the-Eagle-Sore” Ashcroft when he was post-operative and sedated in intensive care. Al Fredo finally cleared up any confusion by explaining that he, then Chimpy’s George W. Bush’s White House counsel, and Card had cooked up a big pot of chicken soup for Ashcroft and wanted to deliver it to him before it got cold. Oh, that and to have the loopy-on-meds Ashcroft sign off on an illegal warrantless wiretapping program. I’ll let The Arizona Republic tell you about it:

In May, former Deputy Attorney General James Comey testified that Gonzales and then-White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card had pressured Ashcroft in March 2004 to reauthorize the program as Ashcroft lay gravely ill in a hospital bed.
Comey said the Bush administration ran the program without the Justice Department’s approval for up to three weeks in 2004, nearly triggering a mass resignation of the nation’s top law enforcement officials.
Gonzales said the hospital visit had taken place only after the so-called “Gang of Eight” top congressional and intelligence committee leaders from both parties had told him to proceed with the program despite Comey’s opposition.

(emphasis mine)
See what I mean!! Gangs in Congress!!!! Poor Gonzy! I would have been scared, too, faced with this bunch of hooligans:

Gonzogate, Part CLXVIII

Al Fredo is going back to Capitol Hill today!! Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Patrick Leahy (D-VT), sent Gonzo a list of questions so he would be able to refresh his Swiss cheese memory before coming to testify. The title will give you an idea of what it covered:
Leahy Sends Attorney General Questions In Advance Of Judiciary Panel’s Oversight Hearing

Weasel Joe in His Natural Habitat

Did’ja see the mutual masturbation session interview that Helmet-Head Sean Hannity had with ass-wipe Joe Lieberman (I-CT) last week right before the Senate pajama party? Me neither. I don’t watch Faux News. Never have, never will. However, while googling, I happened upon the transcript. Get out your barf bags, kids; here are a few snippets:

HANNITY:…Congress’ approval rating now that Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi have been in power is now at an all-time low in the history of poll taking at 16 percent. We have been through non-binding resolutions, we have been through the idea that Petraeus was appointed unanimously. Harry Reid at the time said trust the generals. The surge was approved. We’re not supposed to get the full report until September.

Why did they decide do this now, considering they were supposed to give General Petraeus that time?

LIEBERMAN: There is no good reason to have this vote and this series of votes now. I know the war is unpopular. I know that there is pressure within different constituencies to do something. But Sean, what you said is basically right. We adopted a law in May that set a series of benchmarks. First the interim report last week.
….snip….
The only reason to have the vote now would be, apart from politics, would be if you thought there was evidence that the surge counteroffensive was failing. In fact, as you know, all of the evidence is that it was succeeding. So this is wrong.
