Challenge: Explain to me how refusing to testify under oath and on record is anything different than admitting guilt and wanting the ability to lie your ass off.
Apologies for getting political today. Not my thing normally, but sometimes I just can’t keep myself from getting vocal about Pinch-Eyes the Monkey Prez and his band of Armani-clad goons.
For those not into following the myriad of methods by which the American government is currently skull-raping the peoples’ civil rights, I’ll just get you up to speed on the latest scandal.
Attorney General (and unapologetic Bush shill) Alberto Gonzalez fired eight federal prosecutors allegedly because they were not loyal to the President. Because of the fact that US judges are supposed to be nonpartisan, this has, not surprisingly, created something of a stir. As a result, Gonzalez and that man-swine Carl Rove are being asked to speak to many interesting points of the affair.
But here’s the kicker: they don’t want to testify under oath and on the record. Bush has tried to disguise this blatant attempt to protect his administration’s boundless corruption by claiming that under-oath testimony would conflict with the separation of powers. Har! How deliciously ironic, considering this entire case is about a flagrant disregard for the separation of powers!
To be clear, it doesn’t surprise me that this is the angle Dubya is playing. After all, he has some experience in the whole lying under oath thing. For that matter, so does Gonzalez. Oh, and so does Rove.
So… I challenge anyone who thinks this administration is anything less than a murder of villainous politi-crows to leave a comment explaining to me exactly how refusing to testify under oath is any different than saying you want to have the freedom to bear false testimony. Do your best to put a positive spin on it. But be careful in your response, because unless you say something outwardly hateful, your comment will remain for all to see. And don’t insult yourself by informing me Clinton also lied under oath; that’s a textbook example of ad hominem tu quoque and will only serve to make you look ignorant and plebeian.
There’s no discrimination here, by the way. Those who just want to go on the record as totally agreeing with me that the Bush Administration is made up of liars and larcenists may also feel free to comment.
