Just a round up of somethings people in Washington attempted to bury in the Friday afternoon news dump:
A Leak? From the CIA? I'm Shocked!!
Chalk up one in the V column for Porter Goss. While the MSM will no doubt howl at the moon about this, its about damn time some heads rolled at Langley in regards to the incessant leaking of classified information.
Today, an unidentified CIA officer was fired for evidently leaking information which contributed to last year's Pulitzer prize winning story in the Washington Post alleging the existence of secret US prisons in Eastern Europe.
Perhaps the secrecy oath means something after all.
Glass House Jackasses
The adage about throwing stones when you live in a glass house has just come back to bite the Congressional Jackass caucus in the hind quarters. Congressman Alan Mollohan (D-WV), ranking Jackass on the House Ethics committee is resigning his position on said committee because of...
accusations of ethical misconduct.
So much for that election year gimmick of an issue. What now, Nancy?
The Junior Senator from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, John F. "Lurch" Kerry is "thinking hard" about a 2008 run for the White House. Still stuck on stupid, he's pining for the 60,000 Ohio voters who would have given him the 2004 nod. Evidently he has no curiosity as to the 3,012,497 who also found him to be made of less than presidential material.
Stay tuned for the next Lurch plan.
