A bitch can’t wait to get my Caucus viewage on but even I was distracted by this wee bit of CIA tape scandal news.
Scooter B. (President Bush, just in case you’re newish) strongly…mmmhmmm, strongly…supports the CIA tapes probe.
Don't get excited. In the past he held strong convictions about America not getting into the bitness of nation building…funding education reform…actually initiating energy reform…you get the point.
Now Scooter B. is going on record that his rancid ass is all for a serious criminal probe into the destruction of CIA interrogation tapes.
Right, just like he welcomed the investigation into whom within his administration leaked the name of a CIA operative to the press.
Come to think of it, Scooter B.’s bring it on response is rather telling.
He either knows, kind of like Nixon knew those 18 minutes where gone baby gone from that Watergate-based tape, that the CIA tapes have been vanished without a trace into a rumor. Or he’s betting that the investigation wraps up quickly and he can just get his pardon on and make it go away.
But it won't go away, will it?
Much like those now infamous 18 minutes tainted all politicians, the missing CIA interrogation tapes will forever taint the Bush Administration as the practitioners of torture because everyone believes that those tapes contained proof of horrible acts.
The way I see it is kind of like walking into a room, seeing a dawg and smelling a foul shit-based stink but not being able to find the pile of shit.
Stank don’t just happen all on its own and you know that shit was in the room at some point.
The only thing left to do is prove true what you already know to be true and the only question left to ask how to get rid of the smell.
