Scott McClellan is still a tool

I mean, good for him for finally coming clean and letting his hair down, and I'm looking forward to reading his book. I hope it does some good in helping Americans understand the reprehensible evil the Bush administration has wrought on this country and the world. I hope it explodes like a bomb in the media, taking out everybody who had anything to do with making this illegal war happen.

But Gods' teeth, he sure took his time about it. Shame he couldn't have blown that whistle before the 2004 election. Or maybe when he finally quit in 2006. Or really anytime before now.

In any event, Robert Wexler wants to haul him up in front of the House Judiciary Committee for a thorough grilling, and wouldn't that be a joy to watch. Damn it, I'm still hoping for impeachment. As I've said before and often, I won't be satisfied until I see Bush and Cheney tarred, feathered, and ridden on a rail across the Memorial Bridge. But I'll settle for Congress growing a pair and doing their duty.

Oh, and 111 nations have agreed to a ban on cluster bombs, and guess what, the United States isn't among them. Because, you know, we need them to further the spread of democracy and stuff. Isn't it depressing how unsurprising this is? Remember when we used to be the good guys?

i remember. we make them, too, so have an economic reason to not support a ban on cluster bombs. though i think we've stopped exporting them; maybe a year ago. if i recall correctly, our close ally israel, which used i think the most cluster bombs of any country, got them from us.

oh, and i think made by lockheed martin, one of the partners that i just gleefully watched land a spacecraft on mars. and lm is probably working right now on ways to make cluster bombs "safer".

this world is twisted, and i'm twisting right along with it...

Tarring, feathering and being ridden out on a rail is too good a fate for Cheney. Waterboard him.
