Well ... It Is True ...

Let's get this out of the way, right up front;

"Way to go, Marcy Wheeler!"

With the avalanche of new news, and reports, detailing the lawbreaking, and illegal activities, of The Bush Grindhouse, the PartyofNoicans, and Flying Monkeys of the Right Wing Freak Show are frantically stroking their tiny violins, that any investigation, let alone prosecution, of the dwarfs, finks, phonies and frauds, would be damaging to the country, that it is just partisan politics by the liberal Democrats, and just avoid all realism whatsoever.

So yesterday, on MSNBC, they had a segment that included Marcy Wheeler, aka Emptywheel, from Firedoglake.com, pitted against Townhall Flying Monkey Matt Lewis, discussing this this weekends' CIA news, of how, at the direction of Shadow President Dick Cheney, Congress was left in the dark as to certain programs the spooks were undertaking.

And, right near the end of the segment, in a calm, factual tone, Marcy spoke what just about the entire world knows, the hypocracy of the PartyofNocians, and Right Wing Freak Show, pointing out how Bill Clinton was hounded, and, impeached (by the Newt Gingrich-led House) for a blow job.

“Your idea is that after investigating Bill Clinton for a blow job for like five years, we shouldn’t investigate the huge, grossly illegal things that were done under the past administration, only because Alberto Gonzales was too much in the back pocket of Dick Cheney to do it while he was still in office.”

Marcy's boss on Firedoglake, Jane Hamsher, pithily posted the video, offering only "And oh yeah Dick Cheney was ordering a whole bunch of illegal shit ... Howard Kurtz takes to the fainting couch."

Over on her The Impolitic, Libby Spencer had the right angle on it;
As Jane Hamsher later pointed out, it's pretty effin' comical that after weeks of making tea bagger jokes, the hosts felt compelled to apologize for Marcy's "outburst." Screw that. Blowjob is a word in the dictionary. It made perfect sense in context. And it's not on the fabled 7 dirty words list.
Oh don't worry, this doesn't even count for a warm-up.

The cacophony is building up, and it will be deafening, especially as more, and more, shit comes out (on top of what's already been shaken loose) on the whole gang of them - Bush, Cheney, Libby, Addington, Yoo, Gonzales, et. all.

If Obama wants to start making this world good again, he better, if not turning around and looking backwards, start glancing in the rear view mirror.

The objects in that mirror are closer than they appear.
