A lot of Bush's haters are wondering why he and Vice President Cheney are going to appear together before the Kean Commission when they grant that august body an interview. Why, they ask, don't the two men testify separately?
Well, it's a great question, but it's one that's built on the premise that criminal suspects are always questioned independently of one another so that they can't collude on their answers. In other words, the default setting for the craphounds in the Leftist press is that Bush and Cheney are guilty of something. Why else question what is simply a matter of convenience for two men who, it turns out, are extremely busy these days?
Do the President's accusers think that Cheney is going to use hand signals to keep the President from indiscreetly blurting out of some state secret? Do they think Cheney will cut the President off and answer for him?
I think the next time the President is asked such a stupid fucking question, he should turn it around and ask the questioner why it matters to him or to anyone whether that testimony is given jointly. Seriously. The only way some snot-nose reporter could conceivably crawl out of such a hole would be to admit on the spot that he believes the President is a criminal with something to hide. Because there is no other reason to ask that question.
Remember: those media outlets with access to the President are overwhelmingly for-profit enterprises. They have a product to sell and its name is Scandal. These sorry gristleheads don't care to be pro-Administration or to ask questions that might possibly evince an appreciation for what it is that our culture does right; they simply understand the role of the media they whore for to be the manufacture of dissent (how do you Chomskyite abortion survivors like that phrase?). If they can insinuate or mislead the viewer-consumer into the mere sense that something is rotten in the state of Denmark, then they are that much closer to creating a scandalous atmosphere where everything is amenable to their manipulations.
Anyhow, the Leftist broadsheeters needn't worry that Bush will get away with something: ben Veniste will see to it that everyone gets a full run-down on what the Chimp from Crawford manages to say in his pitiful defense.
