Y'know, watching the all new improved Scotty Show has been quite a treat so far - but most of the really good performances have been coming from Fox News, Dana (Tina Dancer of Fascism) Perino and of course, Comedian Rush Limbaugh.
On today's episode Mr Limpbaugh responds to this mornings interview with Scott McClennan on the Today show, just remember that this is the man that in 2006 admitted that he'd been "carrying water for the Republicans" for years and he wasn't doing it anymore. I guess he got his second wind. Limbaugh, being the singular dipwad that he is, goes far beyond the already standard talking points that Scott is just "Disgrunted", "Chasing a Buck" and that his behavior is "Puzzling".
No, it's much worse than that.
Funny Point Number One after McClennan describes how he thought Bush really meant it when he said he was going to be a "uniter not a divider" Yucks a minute on the one.
Limbaugh: This just Frosts Me. You are using the language of the LEFT! Don't you realize - You DOLT - that your job was to help your President Prevail!
And here most of us thought that the job of people in public service was to serve the needs of THE NATION and to protect and honor THE CONSTITUTION. Silly us.
Then Rush goes on an on and on about how President Bush did so much to reach across the isle by writing legislation with Ted Kennedy.
He went out of his way to bring Democrats into the White House for policy purposes.
That was ONE BILL Rush. One. Uno. Way back in 2001. What's he done for the country, and in concert with Democrats lately? Veto the Childrens Health Care Bill? Threaten to Veto the new G.I. Bill?
How many times did he meet with the Congressional Black Caucus? Was it even once?
This is a President who would never attack Democrats
Except for calling them "Appeasers", "Traitors", "Quitters" and "Defeato-crats".
Funny HA HA Number two: The Plame-gate deal, where Scott laments that both Libby and Rove lied to his face about being involved in the leak.
(Long Sigh) Uh, Scott. National Intelligence Estimate. The President does not leak it after he declassifies it. Do you not remember you idiot, that the drive-by media and the Democrats where clamoring for this?
Also this business about Rove and Libby involved, hey Scott have you heard thename "Richard Armitage"? They were not involved in the leak. Scott if you had an gonads you know that what happened to Scooter Libby was one of the major travesties of justice that has occurred in our lifetimes.
Ok, here's the interesting thing. Yes, it's true that the President can declassify anything he wants to - anytime he wants to. But contrary to what was discussed on Countdown with McClennan tonight - Valerie Plame's ID was not including in the NIE, according to transcripts of the Libby Trial Her status as an employee at CIA was included in a State Dept INR memo which was generated, in part, by Scooter Libby asking Armitage's deputy Marc Grossman about Joe Wilson's trip. If Scooter hadn't made an issue of it, there wouldn't have been a memo - which was STILL classified - for him to later leak to Armitage, Rove and others.
Second point, the NIE information that Libby was authorized to give to reporters, something that Richard Cheney's actual press secretary Cathie Martin refused to do, was all bullshit. Libby told Judith Miller that the NIE made an "unequivocal case against Saddam and his weapons program" That was a lie. Even the executive summary of NIE didn't make that case, and in the actual classified section was an extensive State and Energy Dept debunking of the aluminum tubes theory. It even posits that the Niger documents that Joe Wilson went to investigate were forgeries! Libby also told Miller that "Wilson's wife works at CIA, and that's why he was sent...", except that he told her that she worked in Non-proliferation when Grossman had told him that she worked for CPD, and that info was confirmed to Libby by Robert Grenier the CIA's top man on Iraq. The difference is crucial - CPD is where the COVERT SPIES WORKED!!
If LIbby had told her Wilson's Wife works for CPD even Thick-as-Rocks-Miller could have figured out that she was probably a covert operative and she was now a participant in Treason.
Libby's meeting with Miller on June 23rd was the FIRST case where classified info on Plame and Wilson went to an unauthorized person. It was the first time her ID was revealed. But it wasn't the last. The only reason Miller didn't reveal the information long before Robert Novak was because the New York Times refused to print the story. And if Karl Rove hadn't confirmed to Novak what Armitage had told him about Plame, he wouldn't have printed it either.
Yes, they were bloody well involved you nipple.
Libby's guilty sentence was perfectly appropriate considering he lied both the FBI and the Grand Jury that he first heard about Plame from Tim Russert, instead of the truth, Dick Cheney told him.
Then there's the Iraq War:
Limbaugh: His book is fiction. President Bush delivered 24 major speeches on Iraq over two years. Congress sited no fewer than 23 reasons when it overwhelming gave Bush the right to removed Saddam Hussein
Congress didn't give those reasons, the Iraq Force Resolution was written by the White House and it required the President to verify that there was no chance that "Diplomacy could still work" with Saddam. Bush to this very DAY is still claiming that Saddam wouldn't let the inspectors back in, but he started the War while the inspectors where in the middle of finding and destroying al-Samoud missles that they found - IN IRAQ! They said that Saddam wouldn't come clean because he didn't explain What he Did with Yellowcake Uranium that Joe Wilson couldn't Find - BECAUSE IT WASN'T THERE
Hey Rush, McClennan's not the "DOLT" or the "idiot" here - you are.
