The Wheels have come completely off of the current band of thugs running this country (charitably known by some as the Bush Administration).
In Recent News:
First, all of the President's men swear up and down that they had nothing to do with exposing CIA officer Valerie Plame... then Lewis "Scooter" Libby is indicted and convicted for having lied to the FBI in it's investigation.
Next, The Attorney General, Alberto Gonzales, swears up and down that the Justice Department didn't base it's termination of a U.S. Attorneys on political grounds... then internal email shows that this is exactly what happened. This really shouldn't be surprising though... if you remember, Mr. Gonzales is the same guy that trashed the U.S. Constitution in this country with The so-called "Patriot" Act, and the same guy that gave Bush the green light to torture prisoners of war "Hey, if we call them "detainees", instead of POWs the Geneva Conventions don't count!" Many Republican lawmakers are now quietly calling for Gonzales to resign.
Now, Lurita Doan, The Administrator of the General Services Administration (GSA) is accused of steering "no-bid" contracts to a local crony, and is being investigated for using GSA facilities, time, and employees to make campaign plans for Republican candidates.
In war news, the administration is now coming under fire from within it's own party. Senator Chuck Hagel, Republican of Nebraska, has actually used the word impeachment. Mr Hagel recently commented on ABC's "This Week", that "Any President who says... "I will not respond to what the people of this country are saying about Iraq or anything else" or "I don't care what the Congress does, I am going to proceed".... there are ways to deal with that"
Bush's Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice (an accomplished Soviet Specialist... um... what Soviets?) continues to make a mess of our middle-east policies, particularly concerning the increasingly alarming situation in Egypt.
Even Robert Novak, a more than slightly partisan editorialist, has declared that in his fifty years of experience, he has never seen a President so "alone" and isolated.
The 2008 elections are nearly two years away, The President's own party (except for those who REALLY like purple Kool-Aid) wants nothing to do with him.
What a mess.
