Clean out the cabinet

The attacks on Nancy Pelosi by the Republicans trying to make an issue of statements she made saying that the CIA did not inform her of details of water boarding and other methods of so-called enhanced interrogation being used to illicit information from detainees is nothing but a diversionary tactic to shift attention away from the everyday unfolding events of the crimes of the Bush administration.

To this point it looks like Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Condoleezza Rice, Alberto Gonzales and maybe even Colin Powell, were all complicit in secret and un-American and illegal activities.

Some Republicans are demanding Pelosi resign, accusing her of lying to the CIA which cannot be proved. One thing we do know is that the CIA has lied to Congress in the past regarding WMDs, Yellow cake, etc. In the face of this, I will accept what Pelosi says and not the CIA unless they can document it.

I might also note that Republicans have a history of playing the game of diversionary tactics when the water gets hot for them, but the difference now is that the electorate has had eight years of nothing but lies and criminal activity from them and are not quite as gullible as they used to be.

It seems that the more that is divulged, the more it looks that the whole Bush cabinet were liars and criminals and should be prosecuted.

Panda,

"Are you guys into geneology ?"

Care to do that for the Kennedy's too?

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 10:59

Blanket,

Seems to me it's the screaming left who are screaming all day about the Bushs but not about the Kennedys.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:07

Yes Blanket. How could you make that mistake.

The right has become a bunch of whiners.

Got Cheese Anyone?

Oh, just great, another jar head called "Gomer" weighs in.
Bush, Cheney, Rice all spoke of "mushroom clouds" and an imminent threat" with regards to Hussein. Bush said explicitly in his "State of the Union", "yellow cake, Nigerian plutonium, centrifuges"...are you that senile you cannot remember 7 years ago?
Guy's, really, we've been over this sh**t for 7 years now.
Read back the transcripts today, and see the futile morass of dog crap these posters care to talk about.
One- liners...gives Abbott & Costello a run for their money with "Who's on First".
I'll just write my LTE's and they'll get published. You fools will respond with 5 or so relevant retorts, then sink into the usual 200 posts or so jibberish that I guess makes your pathetic life worth a grain of salt.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:15

Nemo,

Well, it's about time the right caught up with the left on whining, don't you think?

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:16

I don't know who is on first?

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:18

Focus chief. I said, "The right has become a bunch of whiners."

daKine,

U.S. Secretly Takes Yellowcake From Iraq
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/07/05/world/main4235028.shtml

They found yellow cake there. It wasn't weapons grade...but then, no one could explain WHY it was there in the first place. Did you find something?

By: house_of_pain on 6/2/09 at 11:21

Fine d7, I'll go stand in the corner.
BTW Blanket, have you met Gomer?

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:21

No, Nemo, we need you to ride a skateboard designer in a graphic manner.
Your check is in the mail."

...she really means your mail is being checked...

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:22

We went to war over bad Yellowcake mix.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:27

Nemo,

Stranger things have happened.

Panda,

I got no problem with that chief. I'm not republican and I'm not
democrat. All I know about the K's is their dad was a bootlegger
and that's where their money came from. I'm sure there's a lot
more 'shadiness' but I'm just not interested.

Prescott funding Hitler is hard to top I think,
but go for it. It's only a forum.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:31

Nemo,

Why not? I've been your target for some time and I'm still kicking around.

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:31

You mean blanketgirl is a "he" ?

By: house_of_pain on 6/2/09 at 11:33

Sorry, I thought you were referring to me.

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:33

chief:
How 'bout this:

Ted K's car insurance doesn't cover water damage.

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:34

house:
No, you're in enough pain...

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:34

Panda,

I'm not either one either...got disillusioned with both.

Anyway, their grandfather was apparently in with the mob, or so I've heard:

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/716/what-is-the-true-source-of-the-kennedy-familys-wealth

"In 1973 mob boss Frank Costello said he and Kennedy had been bootlegging partners. Other underworld figures have also claimed Joe was in pretty deep. At least one writer (Davis, 1984) thinks bootlegging enabled Joe to earn his initial financial stake, but that's hard to believe; he had plenty of chances to make money more or less legally. "

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:35

Good for you chief.

It makes me feel good to see that you are raising your status in life to that of a target.

By: slacker on 6/2/09 at 11:37

Besides partying with Hitler, Prescott Bush stole Geronimo's bones, and gave Eisenhower a wedgie.

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:38

chief:
I don't know. K's long dead, Frank's a mobster, (read: professional lier, etc)
and it really is pretty mild compared to being a traitor.

Let's see "Joe Kennedy was in with the mob".

"Prescott Bush funded Hitler during WWII".

I think Prescott's the clear winner here.

By: pandabear on 6/2/09 at 11:40

slacker:
I wasn't going to reveal the "wedgie" thing,
but now that it's out of the bag...

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:41

Good one slacker. Maybe that is why Eisenhower walked funny. lol

Just checked. I'm still a chick.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 11:45

house, who is Gomer?

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:45

Nemo,

Those who have opinions and convictions usually ARE targets. But that doesn't mean the target can't fire back. LOL

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:46

Blanket,

You're still a girl???

Thank GOD! :-)

By: slacker on 6/2/09 at 11:46

nemo, Eisenhower walked funny, because his left leg was only 1 1/2 ft. long. True story.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 11:46

yeah, i was relieved.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 11:47

Panda,

Mob and Hitler. Far as I'm concerning all are well dead and buried. Well...I HOPE the mob is done. Then again, probably not.

By: slacker on 6/2/09 at 11:52

New season of Trueblood starts june 14 th.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 11:56

chief:

Opinions you have not. Programmed to think that you have conviction...you are.

By: Captain Nemo on 6/2/09 at 12:02

Speaking of robots. I think I will see The Terminator today and The Wrestler tonight.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 12:06

I want to see The Wrestler too. I've always liked Mickey Roarke.

By: house_of_pain on 6/2/09 at 12:06

Blanket, didn't you read the earlier posts...
...or were you too busy going from the bedroom to the kitchen? : o

By: idgaf on 6/2/09 at 12:07

The left can't see the danger on the horizon because they are always looking back.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 12:08

house - that's one of my favorite jokes!

do you know why the dead baby crossed the road? it was stapled to the chicken.

By: slacker on 6/2/09 at 12:10

Hate to say it as I'm a Mickey Roarke fan, but ''The Wrestler'' is disappointing.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 12:10

house, i can't read the earlier posts. i need to have a man explain them to me.

By: house_of_pain on 6/2/09 at 12:10

Same reason the punk rocker did it.

By: house_of_pain on 6/2/09 at 12:12

Touche.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 12:12

Nemo,

"Opinions you have not. Programmed to think that you have conviction...you are"

Thank you for the opinioni Yoda...but I'm quite able to think for myself, thank you. And my opinions are indeed my own...and have been for decades.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 12:14

House

"Blanket, didn't you read the earlier posts......or were you too busy going from the bedroom to the kitchen"

I would assume Blanket was in the dining room...waiting to be served.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 6/2/09 at 12:21

well, chief, until my dogs learn to wait on me i'm on my own - lol! the useless mutts still haven't learned how to open my beer bottles for me.

By: chiefpayne568 on 6/2/09 at 12:22

Blanket,

You need a dog like that one in the Bud commercial...the one that goes and gets the beer! LOL

By: dooley on 6/2/09 at 12:25

Nemo , I can't understand how you and dargent tolerate the stupidity of this same bunch of Bush lovers day in and day out . I don't comment much here anymore because it's useless these are the most uninformed people in the world or either they are nothing but a pack of liars. I think the latter probably applys You , loner , dargent ,Panda and blanket are about the sanest voices to be heard here. These fringe nuts have cackling the same rhetoric for the last ten years uninterrupted.
