Cute as button is she in her naval aviator’s helmet. Well, what the hell do you want? She can’t stuff her codpiece like her husband ‘The Decider’…well she could I guess but that would most likely drive the transgendered folk wild. And, perhaps not in a good way.
OK, OK, enough with teh snark!
Emptywheel over af FDL has put together a dyno-mite timeline of what’s comin’ in Congress. It ain’t quite ‘subpoena time’ yet but the table is being set.
Here ya are:
March 23 Deadline for Condi to turn over (Condi apparently ignored this deadline–see her upcoming date with Waxman below)
March 30 (today!) House and Senate [correction–DOJ wanted joint interviews, but it appears only the House Judiciary is involved at this point] Judiciary Committees begin to interview [in private interviews –so don’t look for it on CSPAN] 7 current and former DOJ employees on the USA purge; interviewees include:
- Paul McNulty

That’s a whole lot of stuff fer President Pissypants to deal with. But….
I am not too sympathetic to this Fascist Fool who thought he could institute his own Reich here in the land of the free. ‘Some’ may not be as brave as they usta be but….
Waxman, Conyers and Pelosi with Feingold, Webb and Tester waiting in the wings? Against, Condi-lies-a-lot, Abu Gonzo, Dick ‘The Toad’ Cheney and ‘The Decider’.
I will take that matchup any day and give you odds.
Pass dat popcorn tekstone!
