It Was Inevitable….

WASHINGTON (AFP) — A fire broke out Wednesday near US Vice President Dick Cheney’s ceremonial office, in a building overlooking the White House, and left significant smoke and water damage, US officials said.

Hmmmm, Chimpy & Company under scrutiny for getting rid of evidence in so many cases, and now a fire? I am sure that one thing has nothing to do with the other. Instead, it was a matter of inevitablitly. Like the old saying goes,

Huckabee Family Values

From Newsweek:

As Mike Huckabee gains in the polls, the former Arkansas governor is finding that his record in office is getting more scrutiny. One issue likely to get attention is his handling of a sensitive family matter: allegations that one of his sons was involved in the hanging of a stray dog at a Boy Scout camp in 1998. The incident led to the dismissal of David Huckabee, then 17, from his job as a counselor at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Ark. It also prompted the local prosecuting attorney— bombarded with complaints generated by a national animal-rights group—to write a letter to the Arkansas state police seeking help investigating whether David and another teenager had violated state animal-cruelty laws. The state police never granted the request, and no charges were ever filed. But John Bailey, then the director of Arkansas’s state police, tells NEWSWEEK that Governor Huckabee’s chief of staff and personal lawyer both leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor’s request.

Maybe the Devil Made Him Do It

From the Houston Chronicle (12.14.2007):

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans blocked a bill today that would restrict the interrogation methods the CIA can use against terrorism suspects.

The legislation, part of a measure authorizing the government’s intelligence activities for 2008, had been approved a day earlier by the House and sent to the Senate for what was supposed to be final action. The bill would require the CIA to adhere to the Army’s field manual on interrogation, which bans waterboarding, mock executions and other harsh interrogation methods.
