Proving He Is A Man of Integrity, Bush Fires Self

Washington, f-A-ke. P. -

After today's disclosure that he had, in fact, authorized Scooter Libby to leak the name of Valerie Plame to the press, President Bush took the extraordinary step of firing Vice President Dick Cheney and then firing himself. When asked what prompted this unprecedented step, the President replied, "Well you know I said that if someone committed a crime, they would no longer work in my administration. I'm just following through on that promise. The American people expect it."

Speaker of the House and next in line for the Presidency, Dennis Hastert, when informed of the President's actions said "The f*ck you say?!"

Oh, if only.

After reading Glenda's post, little would surprise me today.

Have a great weekend.
The douchebag of liberty was right... Bush did know.

Nothing to see here, move along now...
He did but the question is, what will happen? Nothing?

Kvatch that picture of me looks like I am in a tornado.
If Hastert becomes prez, he will be the ugliest looking one ever and he's so politically vile that he will melt down the Republican party in one foul breath.

Peacechick, I Know what you mean. Normally I'd say that Hastert is too ugly even to become the Prez, and he's a sloppy dresser as well. But hey...these are special circumstances. :-)
Here's what I am chewing on about this. The intent of Bush authorizing this leak was not to protect the country, but to exact revenge. What law would allow abuse of power for the purpose of harming this family and why is this disclosure not an act of a traitor in the eyes of the law?

There's something you're all not getting. This is just a dream. This can't possibly be happening in America. Do you think any president could actually get away with what this president has done?

Hey, what are you all doing in my dream?
Not get away with it? Of course he will. The Republicans will pass a law that okays what he did and we'll go on to the next Bush atrocity.
Bush not only needs to fire himself, as president and chief law enforcement officer, he needs to indict himself for War Crimes and charge himself with mass murder for his invasion of Iraq. Then he needs to prosecute himself in a fair trial and give himself a life sentence in Leavenworth. And he needs to name Cheney as an accomplice, equally culpable, and indict and charge him as well.
in a perfect world
Glenda, knowingly exposing a cover operative is a federal felony carrying a door prize of up to 15 years in prison.

Abi...hey this is my blog, so I think that's my dream. Thank you very much.

Lew, Just like they're trying to do with wiretapping?

Newsguy, so true. Can I get all that in writing?
if only...
I've met Wilson's son, and he's a nice guy.

People sometimes forget he and Plame have children. Disclosing her identity didn't just put her at risk, it put their children at risk, too.

An indictment isn't enough...
