Sigh. I wish.

E J Dionne takes all my sputterings this week and coalesces them into one on the mark column today.

So many principles that Republicans held dear when they were trying to take Clinton down are no longer operative.

This certainly applies to a 1998 column now whizzing around the Internet that ran under the headline "Executive Privilege Is a Dodge." It was written by Tony Snow, who is now President Bush's press secretary.
(ed. note- Tony on "sick leave" for a while right now? How convenient.)

To investigate Clinton -- even his Christmas card list -- was God's work.
To investigate Bush is "to head down the partisan road of issuing subpoenas and demanding show trials," as the president put it this week.

This is what needs to be pummeled into the ground. And while we're at it, throw one of their favorite sayings back at them, "If you have nothing to hide, why would you object to being under oath?" Things look like they are starting to heat up, with more and more evidence coming out that Abu Gonzales may have "fibbed" about his involvement in the situation.

I'm hoping for a fun week.

Now, now, Paddy. Let's not speak ill of Tony Blow. It could be serious.

I'm not speaking ill, just speaking suspicious. In his own words, the procedure is being done in an "overbundance of caution".

Sounds like his words are coming back to haunt him, and he needs to go hide until the heat is off to me.

Quite frankly I've found this Dept. of Justice firings business very complicated, and a bit boring. Thankfully, Jon Stewart keeps us up to date in this video:

You have to admit, Tony Snow fits perfectly with this bunch.

He lies with ease, he is arrogant, self-serving and always on the lookout for another opponent to trounce.

A perfect Bushy.
