B'bye Scooter

As this news broke...

Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff resigned Friday after he was indicted on charges of obstructing a grand jury investigation and lying about his actions that blew the CIA cover of an Iraq war critic's wife.

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby became the first high-ranking White House official in decades to be criminally charged while still in office. jaw dropped. I was flabbergasted. When I finally managed to speak, this is what I said:

"Oh my God!" This got the attention of everyone in the immediate area. "There was someone named 'Scooter' working in the Whitehouse?"

Why I found this shocking, I do not know. It figures, I suppose. I'm not surprised that there was corruption at the highest levels of our government. That's a given, but "Scooter"? How did Bubba and Jethro avoid indictment?

This new development, coupled with Harriet scampering away, marks the beginning of the end for the Bush regime, mark my words. It won't be long now.

You know, for a long time now I have wanted to comment on the inappropriateness of the white house hiring someone named Scooter, but I have never found the chutzpah to do it quite so publicly as you have done.... thank you, Saviour Onassis, for voicing those thoughts I lacked the courage to voice myself.
