Scooter & The Scumbags

Filed under: News & Politics — Bill @ 4:11 pm

Famous radio personality and right-winger (not a hockey reference) Paul Harvey did not report a single word about the fact that the former Vice President’s Chief of Staff I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for lying to investigators and obstructing justice in the case involving the unmasking of former CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity.

What is ironic about Paul Harvey’s broadcast is that he claimed that “within 5 years stem cell research may allow blind people to see.”  He, of course, was referring to the research that is going on in an effort to cure Macular Degeneration, an eye disease that affects millions of Americans.  This very research was until recently the only bill our President Bush ever vetoed during his years in office, in large part due to his religious beliefs (and his lack of knowledge about stem cell research).

[Despite whatever they may have told you in church, the majority of stem cells used in research have ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with abortion.  In fact most come from the donors in a process known as In Vitro Fertilization.  It is only because of a widespread misconception (no pun intended), and some well-timed , yet ill-advised right wing propaganda that many people believe that most stem cells come from aborted fetuses.  NOT TRUE AT ALL!]

Meanwhile back to the Scooter who was just convicted of felony charges.  The President George Bush said, “I feel terrible for this fine man and his family.”

Vice President Dick (no pun intended) Cheney said, “We hope that our system will return a final result consistent with what we know of this fine man.”

The system did Dick, and it convicted your buddy, your Chief of Staff, your so called friend of lying to a Grand Jury.  That’s a fine quality American you choose to surround yourself with Mr. Vice President.  We all know he took the fall for your actions.  The real reason Cheney thinks Scooter is such a “fine man” is because he didn’t rat him out for what would likely be charges for treason.  They used to hang people for such an offense to the government of the U.S..

You can’t help but wonder what sort of circles these men run in that they would consider a guy convicted of felony charges of obstructing justice related to treason as “a fine man.”

Would they say the same for a New Orleans Katrina victim father who might be convicted of looting for trying to feed her children?  Would he have the same opportunity or representation in court?  You know what the answer is….

Imagine if you, Joe Lunchbox was put up on charges related to treason in today’s political environment.

It doesn’t take psychic Jeanne Dixon to figure out what is going to happen next.  Scooter will appeal, and just about the time when the hammer is due to come down, George W. will declare him pardoned.  End of story, and they all get off scott free.

I wonder if Paul Harvey will even bring it up?

  1. If parents would stop raising their children to become soldiers, no one would show up for these nonsensical, illegal crusades. With that in mind, regards to Louis T. Our Tommy Boy, a proud military father. Poor Jimmy.

  4. Ralph, get real are you saying that we should have no military? or that having the military is the problem?
    The problem is a president who lied to deceive us into a war for profit.
    And the weenies in Congress who refuse to play hardball with him.

  5. … and the idiots that voted for him or against him and weren’t appalled when said votes weren’t counted [the first time] and the voting machines messed with [a coup] the second time. Socrates said it best: Our leaders are a reflection of what we are as a society.
    Aside, at this point I’m more afraid of Nancy Pelosi than George Bush. She’s a better liar.
    Yes, we need a military. But one that isn’t underfunded, undertrained, underprotected, and run by idiots.
