This bitch was one sip into a rather fantabulous cup of extra bold coffee (2 cubes sugar and a dash of cream…yum) when a certain Billy Martin (where have I seen him before…oh, yes…oh my!) flashed onto my television screen representing none other that Senator Larry Craig of the three foot taps away from paradise Craigs!
Senator Craig is filing papers to have his guilty plea thrown out. Apparently, Craig was bewitched, bothered and bewildered when he agreed to enter a guilty plea in the Minneapolis airport bathroom sex sting case.
He didn’t know that he was going to be held responsible when he agreed that he was responsible…he had no idea that he was waiving his right to have his case heard before a judge when he waived his right to have his case heard before a judge...he was unaware that “guilty” meant guilty…and he’s prepared to fight till the fight is fought!
But it’s not what Craig wants that fascinates me…it’s what he thinks he deserves.
Senator Craig’s defiance shines a harsh light on the nature of the political aristocracy and how they resist accountability and thus prolong all manner of drama.
Members of both political parties who are now gathered to listen to General Petraeus report about the progress or lack of progress in Iraq.
Both plan to hear a report that will validate their interpretation of the new way forward...no matter what General Petraeus or Ambassador Crocker submit.
Neither wants to be held accountable for what they have done, failed to do or plan to do regarding this war.
And so they will posture and spin...waste some time pontificating about some newspaper ad…and avoid any real discussion of where we are and where we need to be.
Policy has a thousand parents while accountability remains an orphan.
Is the whole world watching?
Or does fubar only grow in the dark...
