When the Crazies Run the Asylum

"In that direction," the Cat said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Hatter: and in that direction," waving the other paw, "lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad." "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked. "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad." "How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice. "You must be, said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here." The Moony rag (The Washington Times) says the Prez is drinking, won’t talk to anyone but Big Momma and the Little Mommies (Condi, Karen and Laura). The WashTimes also says the Prez is ticked off at Big Daddy and won’t talk to him anymore. In addition, the WashTimes says the Prez is testy, belligerent, argumentative and feels betrayed. Hunter over at Daily Kos is hinting that the President’s nutsoid condition could lead to a dangerous breach of national security. So, could it? Can the President, all on his own, have an attack of rodent rage and start World War III? No. I absolutely believe that dick Cheney could cause some serious mischief on his own hook. But George-the-Dupe Bush? Nah! And the reason is that when GWB was elected the first time, his minders knew there was a fifty-fifty chance he would have a psychotic break, start abusing booze and/or cocaine again and slide into a narcissistic episode. And with that prospect on the horizon, the president has never had any discretionary power. As with everything else in the Republican Party, the worst of it is that the president’s mental decline is bad for the country. It’s not that the USA can’t pull itself out of the morass the GOP has landed us in, it can. But it will take a quarter of a century for both parties to undo the effects of five years of Republican fascism. Not only has the Bush administration been bad for the nation, it’s been bad for the entire planet. And now we find out, integrity icon Bob Woodward has shot his credibility to hell by letting his Republican politics dictate his reporting. After reading the statement Woodward released re his testimony yesterday in front of Fitzgerald’s grand jury, you have to wonder: What was all that nonsense Woodward was spouting before the Libby indictment about Valerie Plame’s outing being a simple case of gossip? Woodward was one of the people the White House was giving information to. Woodward knew if anyone knew that the GOP’s concerted effort to discredit Wilson and his wife was serious business. It very much looks like Woodward was not just protecting his sources but was protecting the Republican Party. Well that’s that. Bob Woodward’s goodwill capital has been spent and in the aid of the most corrupt and power-mad administration in the history of the United States. What a waste!

I think that actually that disgusting man was deposed in lieu of appearing before a grand jury.

i wonder, do you actually believe your own bullshit? scary.

That's true. Thanks for the correction. Woodward gave a two-hour deposition to Fitzgerald under oath. He was not in front of a grand jury.
