Club Mud

So exciting!! Ex-employees of the Justice Department are so fucking pissed off enamored of their ex-boss, Alberto Gonzales, that they wanted to do something special for him!! They thought that their former bossman needed some time away after all he has been through with all those hearings and bad press. They all chipped in and bought him a vacation!! They kept the destination secret, so you can just imagine Al Fredo’s surprise when he got off the plane!! I guess it is their way of saying Heckuva job, Gonzo!!

Snowe Drifted, Why Can’t She?

From the Portland Press Herald:

Sen. Olympia Snowe, who split from the Senate Republican caucus and President Bush last month to support a withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, couldn’t take more than a few steps before being stopped Thursday on a walking tour of Portland. In small groups, people approached Maine’s senior senator to clutch her hand and congratulate her.
…snip…
By contrast, several people on Thursday who thanked Snowe for her war stand quickly added that they want Maine’s other senator, Republican Susan Collins, to either join Snowe in calling for a withdrawal of troops or lose her seat next year. Collins is being challenged for re-election in 2008 by Democratic Rep. Tom Allen, who opposes the war.

What’s up, Senator Collins? Is Dick Cheney Karl Rove someone threatening you? Blackmailing you? Or are you just…..

Got To Be There

Ummm, in Iowa, not in Iraq!

Mitt Romney:

The good news is that we have a volunteer Army and that’s the way we’re going to keep it. My sons are all adults and they’ve made decisions about their careers and they’ve chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard.
One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I’d be a great president.

When I get a song and dance, I want music!!! And funny outfits!!!

To the tune of Got to Be There (Written by Elliot Willensky, performed by the Jackson 5):

Got to be here (got to be here),
Be here in the heartland,
We’re too chickenshit for Iraq.

Got to be here (got to be here),
Be here in the RV,
With a non-caffeine drink and a snack

Thank You For Your Service!

From USA Today:

At an “Ask Mitt Anything” forum this morning in Bettendorf, Iowa, GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney was quizzed about whether any of his five sons are serving in the U.S. military.
USA TODAY’s Susan Page, who was there, reports that this was his response:

“The good news is, we have a volunteer Army and that’s the way we’re going to keep it. My sons are adults. They’ve chosen not to serve in the military in active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. … And one of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I’d be a great president.”

It Was Just a Clerical Error!

Gee, I know I feel better!

I Wish They Would Disappear Instead

From the Washington Post:

The Pentagon has lost track of about 190,000 AK-47 assault rifles and pistols given to Iraqi security forces in 2004 and 2005, according to a new government report, raising fears that some of those weapons have fallen into the hands of insurgents fighting U.S. forces in Iraq.
