Lois, the mother on Malcolm in the Middle, typifies sheer outrage when she yells, “What in the world is wrong with you people?” Exactly my reaction when I saw Idaho approval for Bush up to 55% again in March.
Even the mainstream media are forced to mention Bushco scandals what with new ones unveiled almost every day. Don’t those glued to Fox News at least wonder why nationwide approval of the president is down to 32%?
Ask yourself why Dubya immediately orders investigations of ”leaks” that alert Americans to the extent of wrongdoing by this administration, but evidence of lies by Dubya and his gang are never investigated other than by their own appointees, and official inquiries are never answered.
Tyler Drumheller, CIA head of covert operations in Europe, appeared on 60 minutes on May 23 and revealed his knowledge of widespread administration cherry-picking of evidence for WMD and the push for war. But despite three interviews with the Robb-Silbermann Commission and two with the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (this one only after they released their report), Drumheller and his colleagues were stunned at how little of this information ended up in the reports.
If this rotten-from-the-core-out administration fails to completely destroy our civil rights in the next two years, (and they’re well on their way), eventually we will learn the whole truth hidden by their self-investigations, every last one of them, to include 911.
