How Convenient (Alberto Gonzales, et al.)
How convenient that Alberto Gonzales told the "truth" (supposedly) at the congressional hearing AFTER he was put under oath.
It's pretty funny that "protesters" sang Steam's "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" at the end.
And 50+ "I do not recall"'s.
It doesn't get any better than this. (except Wolfowitz's B.S. — and all of the others, and the future events to come that haven't come out yet)
"Democracy Now" with Amy Goodman covered this very well. (as usual)
When my paranoia kicks in, I can't help but wonder if the Virginia Tech shooting incident was an attempt to pull the media away from this. But it didn't last long enough. Perhaps someone miscalculated. Or perhaps it truly has no relationship.
It is unfortunate that the anti-gun nuts and kooks have come out of the woodwork again, and are trying to use the unfortunate Virginia Tech incident as a political tool to further their "Gun Control" agenda. If anyone else did something like that, they would be pounced on and called terrible people and such. Irrational thought and behavior (by the Gun Controllers) like that (for the most part not backed up by any valid data, research or information) is unfortunate in its own right. My current response to them when I meet them is to say, "Booga, booga!" with accompanying facial expression and body language. For some reason that seems to irritate them.
I do wonder if Jon Stewart, from The Daily Show, will get in trouble for his comments the other night, where he "compared" the loss of life at Virginia Tech (~30) with 150 people dead in Iraq that day. (and so many others basically every day) That's almost as bad as what got Bill Maher fired from his show, although it's not right after 9/11, so that may make it less "egregious". (I haven't heard anyone mention it, either)
