He Loved That Man So Much



How it must have pained him to conduct those dozens and dozens of "Watergate-style" hearings into why his hug-buddy slept through the run-up to the worst terrorist attack in American history, and why his hug-buddy responded to the worst terrorist attack in American history by 1) lying us into a war with the wrong country and, 2) botching the fuck out of that war.

Oh, wait...

Judging from the press conference....this President wont be hugging "the world's angriest leprechaun" any time soon.
He and Lindsey "Pat" Graham will have to comfort each other through kangaroo court time.
I smell me some "at long last have you no decency moments" coming to a cspan near you....

I was gonna hope that whatever stupid-ass hearings the Repigs finally hold, on whatever ginned-up charges of mis/mal/non feasance they settle on, up to and including impeachment, blow up in their faces as bad as Newty's Clenispeachment Folly did. Except the U.S. is more insane now than it was in 1998. So hey, it just might work THIS time!

No shite. All the righties' demands for accountability from the Obama administration regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi would ring a whole lot less hollow if they had made the same demands for accountability from the Bush administration regarding the terrorist attack of 9/11/2001 -- an attack which was surely a much bigger deal, seeing as how it happened right here in America instead of halfway around the world, and took the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans instead of 4.

But then, that was back when criticizing the president while the country was at war was unpatriotic at best and an act of treason at worst. Simpler times, eh?

He's going to make up for it all now, because he's such a standup guy.

An indication of the level of corruption in this country is NO ONE has gone to jail, been charged, nothing, and the torture continues...God Bless America

I see that Republicans still have their priorities straight. Witness McCain conducting his three ring circus/clown show with Lindsey Graham and Kelley Ayotte when they could've been attending a super duper double Cosmic Top Secret classified briefing on Benghazi. It almost brought to mind Mark Foley chatting on YIM with his page boy toy when the House was voting on something related to some terrorism thingie or another.

Btw, I decided to get with the times and do what any self-respecting novelist does in the innertubz age: Set up a dedicated blog to my novels and try to drive up a reader base. This is better than inflicting my literary musings as a readership that comes to Pottersville looking for political content. So far, I have four posts up and plan on publishing excerpts, reviews, articles about writing and the publishing game and perhaps even interviews.

Let's see if he steps out of one of this Sunday morning TeeVee clown cars

About the most hilarious thing I ever saw on TV was a "TV Funhouse" (Rt. Smigel) cartoon on SNL of McCain trying to endorse Bush (after Bush and Rove's filthy "black baby" primary smears).

He was unable to bring up the words, and finally retreated to the campaign trailer, where he underwent an _Apocalypse Now_-like hallucinatory flashback, complete with overhead fan, underwear karate chop to the mirror, etc.

Did you ever see it? I have searched exhaustively on YouTube but it doesn't seem to be there. I may have to digitize my VHS copy and upload it someday myself....

Daver, you might not be able to find it because Saturday Night Live seems to have been uber-effective at using "violations of fair use" legal provisions to keep clips of their show off YouTube. I shouldn't blame the show, though, but NBC and whatever corporate overlord owns them this year. Teh Internets tubez have almost every irrelevant piece of crap ever filmed in the history of video, so can I watch snippets of John Belushi? But noooooooo!

(And just to prove my point, I went Oogling for a clip of one of the skits where he uttered that catch-phrase, and there ARE none. You bastards!)
