Kyle Sampson's Damning Testimony: No Improper Motive For Any Of The Firings Of The Sacred 8
— Ace

He really flipped on Gonzales.

It's like Fitzmas came twice in one year!

Goldstein note he did say something that cast Gonzales in, as the New York Times says, "an unflattering light." To wit, that a Gonzales statement that he had never read memos about the Sacred 8 was "not entirely accurate" in the sense that he was aware of the basics of the plan to fire them. (Sampson himself noted that Gonzales had already clarified this statement; Schumer, of course, insisted on reading to him an already retracted-and-corrected statement.)

Please.

Meanwhile, Val Plame is yet to be investigated for her mistatements about her not being "involved" in "discussions" regarding sending her unqualified, hyperpartisan husband to Niger.

1 Remember, no lib ever commits a crime, and no Republican is ever innocent.

2 Who's to blame for the double standard but republicans? They never demand that these issues be fully and publically vetted. In fact, I'm sick of hearing about them knowing full well ain't shit going to happen.

3 Partial transcript of today's hearing:

Democratic Senator: Are you a Republican?

Sampson:                 Uh, yes.

Democratic Senator: That's very troubling. We're going to have to try and send you                                  to jail.

Republican Senator:   My I have some pudding Mr. Democrat?

Democratic Senator:  No. Now get me a juicebox!

Republican Senator:   Yes, sir.

They've got us now, since apparently a Republican making a misleading statement in a television interview is a crime worthy of a Congressional investigation.


Of course it's "truth to power" when the Dems do it.


Next investigation:  Cheney claimed having an 18" cock, when in fact it's only 17.9"

5 Don't get too excited with this, the truth didn't matter a bit in the Plame case. They caught Scooter being inconsistent in testimony and that proves that Cheney is evil, don't you konw?

6 To wit, that a Gonzales statement that he had never read memos about the Sacred 8 was "not entirely accurate" in the sense that he was aware of the basics of the plan to fire them.

IIRC it was actually another person who said this in behalf on Gonzo.

Anyways, Josh Marshall bashes his head against a wall in disappointment.

Will Republicans show up at these hearings? How did they ever win anything without Newt? 


Dems in the minority would show up and ask questions that make news. 


I heard some reporter saying that Specter was gunning for Rove. 


Jeebus.  Where's my burqa?

Yes, well Republicans are probably there asking questions but you know, why should they get into the news?

Look, we all know that it is in fact very easy for a Republican to get into the news.  All he has to do is to attack or criticize another Republican and the MSM will be all up his crack like a cheap suit.

13 With all he crap going on in Congress I wonder if we might be better off in the long run to fire the lot of them, both sides of the house, send the Senate home, and pick a King, they are fighting like a bunch of little bitches at a Paris Hilton sleep over while our troops bleed, the great unwashed at home look on as if this was a pay for view event, and the Islamic terrorist sit back and laff there ass of at the slow death of the American way of life. In the end we will be so week Mexico will start walking north and we wont have to worry about anything, our kids will allready know spanish and they can tell us what they want us to do. Thanks to all the great leaders in DC, who live the good life, we can sit in front of the TV and watch a cat fight as our nation falls apart in front of our eyes.
