And The Fun Just Keeps On Leaving…

For BushCo, that is. For about a single day I think the Bush Camp were feeling pretty good about themselves. Sure they got busted in yet another intrusion of our privacy, but as my last post pointed out, America didn’t seem to care, so all was good. But then hopes for a brighter future for El Presidente and his cohorts were dashed just one day after that when Newsweek ran an ACTUAL poll (as opposed to a half poll that WaPo ran, sampling only 500 as opposed to the normal 1000) that actually let the story sink in for a few days. America, it would seem, had gone back to wanting their privacy to stay, um, private.

It doesn’t get better from there for the folks in the White House either. As Fester astutely pointed out in a chat I had earlier with him today, the polls aren’t likely to improve for the administration as the ramifications of that story begin to sink in to the public consciousness.

But wait, it gets better (unless you’re a member of BushCo, in which case I suggest you stop reading now).

It seems as though Dick Cheney is once again a focus point in the Fitzgerald investigation. Four questions written by The Vampire in the margins of the edition of the NY Times that carried the Joe Wilson’s piece that started this whole mess have become an integral piece of Fitz’s case.


Here are the four questions I speak of:

“Have they done this sort of thing before? Send an Amb. to answer a question? Do we ordinarily send people out pro bono to work for us? Or did his wife send him on a junket?”

Innocent enough right? Except, not really, not when you think that A) the article in quesiton was highly critical of the administration, and B) Valerie Plame was outted just a few short days after.

Man the Sunday morning talk shows are gonna be a hoot!
