Bush lied to Fitzgerald
The most interesting thing about the DeFrank piece [here] is that it is a fairly simple admission on the White House's part that Bush lied for more than two years about knowing who leaked Plame's name. And the thing that made him mad was not that it was illegal or immoral act -- it was that they got caught.
This certainly helps explain why Bush and Cheney didn't want to be interviewed under oath by Fitzgerald, doesn't it? They'd both be up for perjury -- and I mean real perjury not "did Monica suck your dick on Tuesday or Wednesday?" perjury.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, explain to me just why the hell anyone from this point onward should trust a single damned word that comes out of this lying president's mouth?
I would declare that he's pretty much done now folks. He's going to be irrelevant to the process of anything in Washington now. He's been caught in an astonishing lie about something that really mattered, not Monica-level sexual peccadillo bullshit.
I do think that approvals in the 20s are coming. I've been predicting 20s for quite some time now.
What do I get from Atrios if W's approval rating drops to the 20s? A really big pony? My seven-year-old daughter would love that.
