That position, coupled with Nancy Pelosi's apparent lack of motivation to seek accountability from the current regime, frustrated me to the point that I had to create this video:
Yesterday, after hearing from former Bush mouthpiece Scotty McClellan about how he was intentionally misled in his statements to the public by the President and his henchmen, Sen. Dodd may have finally seen the light.
From the article in Editor & Publisher:
(McClellan said) "I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration "were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice President, the President's chief of staff, and the president himself."So now, Chris Dodd apparently has come to the conclusion that Bush may have lied to us after all! I'm sure the Senator needed to clutch at the curtains to prevent himself from keeling over from the sheer enormity of the realization!
In response to this revelation, Chris Dodd is now calling for an investigation of the President. I know that nothing good ever happens quickly in Washington, but this took even longer than any of us expected.
Of course, Dodd is starting with a polite request to the brand new Attorney General (and Bush appointee), the Most Honorable Michael Mukasey (or as I like to refer to him, "The Abu Gonzales Mark II"), whom I'm totally convinced will respond by immediately launching an exhaustive and thorough investigation that will require all the principals involved to answer all the tough questions honestly.
Just look at adorable li'l Judge Mukasey, shown here with the man Sen. Dodd wants him to investigate. Look at how Mukasey's eyes glow with the burning ambition to see that the letter of the law is upheld! See how his American flag pin is displayed at a jaunty angle on his lapel! That tells me in no uncertain terms that THIS is the man we can all count on to get to the bottom of this inquiry, no matter WHAT the president tells him to do!
If THAT doesn't make you feel better, you're probably a COMMIE or something!
