Now Playing: "Happy" by the Rolling Stones
Last week, before the Libby indictments were issued, professional shitstirrer David Gergen made a strange observation (emphases mine):
"It's not that the abuse of power here is anything like Watergate or Iran-Contra even," says Gergen, now the director of Harvard's Center For Public Leadership. "Rather it is, if indictments come, they may be of the people closest to the president and vice president of the United States. And they will re-open the wounds of Iraq, and people will ask the question, if indictments come, were we led into Iraq by criminal means?"Gergen is making the same stupid connection between the (supposed) outing of Valerie Plame and the War for Iraq that other dumbasses, like Joe Wilson and Chris Matthews, keep making as well.
That is to say, we went to war before poor little Valerie was "outed." Are we clear on that yet? Gergen is clearly linking the indictments to some bullshit notion of "criminal means" that supposedly led us to war months before Bob Novak finally put two and two together ---which, not incidentally, was Number One on Joe Wilson's wish list. After all, you can't be a martyr if no one nails you.
You just know there's some dishonest shit going on when Democrats are [fretting] about national security and the integrity of the intelligence community. This from the party of Frank Church and Ted Kennedy and John Kerry? Get the hell out of here!
