Extra Crispy Bucket of Lies

"I will admit it, [there was], we screwed up and we're trying to fix it..."
Substitute Spokesliar, Dana Perino

"We are trying to understand to the best of our ability, the universe of the e-mails that were potentially lost, and we are taking steps to make sure that we use the forensics that are available to retrieve any of those that were lost."
More BS from White House Spokesliar, Dana Perino

If there's anything that this administration can lie about, you can be sure that they will. Never in the history of this country has there been a group so predisposed to lying. They have consistently told lies rather than the truth, even when it seemed that the truth would have been the simpler path. They lied about the elections that put them in office, they lied about the 9/11 cover-up, they lied to get the country to back an invasion of Iraq, they lied about the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame, they lied about the death of Pat Tillman, they lied about the Hurricane Katrina debacle, they are lying about the firing of eight US Prosecutors and they are compounding this lie, by further lying about the e-mails that might shed some light on the scandal. It's about time the American people call Bush, Cheney & Co. to task for their incessant love of falsehoods over the truth. And by that, I mean it's time to seriously consider impeachment. It's long overdue and god knows we've certainly got enough evidence to demonstrate "high crimes and misdemeanors." I do not think that this country can nor should it have to suffer through two more years of this horrible incompetence and mismanagement, never mind the outright criminal activity that has cost us billions of dollars in Iraq and thousands upon thousands of American and Iraqi lives. It seems it all gets back to Iraq - one way or the other. This e-mail/prosecutor scandal is just another symptom of the disease that has infected the Bush/Cheney administration. The disease is one of continual lies, deceit, paranoia and distrust that have been the hallmark of this administration - all engaged in to perpetuate the power and authority that the Neo-Cons that run this show have so cravenly sought for years. It's long past time to throw these bums out!

I'll be tuning in on April 25 on PBS to watch Bill Moyers ("Buying the War") document what many of us have known for quite awhile - the long list of lies that got us into Iraq and continue to keep us there.

Check out Moyers' Blog for follow-up on last night's show.
