According to Buzzflash the Gannon/Guckert scandal is finding its way into the mainstream media. Apparently not wanting to be outdone by the bloggers they are having to confront the story. And what a story it is! If they truly pursue it rather than trying to bury it as usual it should mean really bad news for the White House. How do you explain how a right wing homosexual fake journalist was repeatedly given press passes to the White House and was also routinely called on for questions, questions that were extremely sympathetic to the Bush/Cheney administration? When questioned by Anderson Cooper on CNN (can you believe it?) Gannon gave absolutely no satisfactory answers and just seemed to dig himself in deeper and deeper. In fact, I see no point in his appearing on Anderson Cooper. But now that he has been "outed," so to speak, he should be fair game for not only bloggers but also the major news outlets. Let us hope.
Hillary, on a recent quick trip to Iraq, has announced that the recent suicide bombers, who only managed to kill about 50 people, proves that the resistance is slowing down. Huh? Somewhere I saw mentioned that Joe Lieberman might be considered a replacement for Rumsfeld (if he should leave) Huh? I hope this was just a joke, not that I think it is overdue for Rummy to leave. It appears there is a chance that Chalabi might still end up as the big honcho in Iraq. Huh?
I finally found time to start reading Imperial Hubris. Terrific. Too bad Bush can't read, or at least doesn't. I guess non of the neocons do, unless perhaps the comics. Too bad things aren't funny anymore.
