More 5th, More Immunity

Now just how swell does this look, Monica Goodling - Albie's aide takes the 5th and gets immunity, now former Rove aide Suan Ralston has taken the 5th before Waxman's House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform concerning contacts between BushCo and Abramoff. Raw Story quotes her attorney Bradford Berenson, "She has material, useful information about both of those subjects."

What could be so incriminating for a Rove aide? Berenson gives a list, "The subjects this morning that she will be unable to testify to...are the subjects of the relationship between Jack Abramoff and his associates and White House officials, including Ms. Ralston, and the subject of the use by White House officials of political e-mail accounts at the RNC," oddly political sounding subjects for taking the 5th. Politics is an art, the making possible of policy ideals, a concreting of the abstract, it really needn't be criminal - except possibly under the BushCo regime. You don't suppose Ms. Ralston is a Liberty grad? Nah, Loyolla and Keller Universities, but she is also a grad of...Preston Gates - gasp - Abramoff.

It just gets a bit more unsavory as time goes on at BushCo. Maybe after '09 we'll get to see some orange jumpsuits and handcuffs - maybe GeorgeII will trade his flightsuit in for one...

It ain't gonna happen, get over it. The Dimmo's are as corrupt as the repugs. K street changed hands in the middle of the night and we have a new boss in town, from a brown suit to a blue suit. George and Co. will skate out their years is fine style and we who believe in politics will be kicked in the gonads again and again and again...

Just maybe a third party will gain some strength here in Oregon. Spend and tax is one party and tax and give to me is the other party.
As the man says "We have the best government ,money can buy"> Hey, what happened to good old Jeff Merkley and his puff and huff Ethics Plan? Another lyin' SOB.
