Jane Faulkner, from the film “Mr. Deeds Goes To Town”
Pixilated or not, I hope on this 4th of July, someone at the National Archives had the nagging thought that they better go in and check the U.S. Constitution, just to be sure that our Court-Appointed President didn’t add a Signing Statement to it
It’s likely Bush hasn’t done that (yet) – He’s been too busy the past few days, maintaining his faux and manufactured outrage at The
Perhaps, inspired by the incendiary pap, of what will undoubtedly be very Patriotic-themed fireworks tonight, the Bush team, or the Stepford GOP Congress will have a new, urgent amendment they will attempt to ram through – Leaker Burning.
They’re for it. Publicly, at the stake, if possible.
Except, of course, when it is the President himself directing and ordering the leak, as reported yesterday by the ever-digging journalist
Which now presents a “father” problem for the Leaker-In-Chief Bush, since Father #2 (the biological one) said, back in 1999, that “I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors
Would love to be a fly on the potato salad up in
Since the CIA has closed down the office hunting Osama bin Laden, maybe they’ll be reincarnated to handle the leaks – which, as we have seen, could mean, both dishing them out, and chasing after them.
Or does this mean Bush morphs again, from cowboy, to defender-warrior, to now becoming Roger O. Thornhill, to bin Laden’s George Kaplan, developing Madison Ave slogans, rather then strategy, and hunting him from cave-to-cave, always one step behind, and setting up the big finale atop of Mount Rushmore
Likely the four presidents carved into the mountain won’t be pixilated. They’ll cast a wary glance at Bush 43 and then shudder at what has become of the democracy they helped build and defend.
Take a break from the grill, or before you trudge out to see the fireworks, read two very fine posts that should help and add to the celebration of this 4th of July.
