The most telling piece of information in the AP article "Democrats Urge Inquiry on Bush, Iraq" is this sentence:
The Democratic congressmen were relegated to a tiny room in the bottom of the Capitol and the Republicans who run the House scheduled 11 major votes to coincide with the afternoon event.Eleven major votes? Wouldn't that actually indicate the importance of the event? Of course Scott McClellan played down the event by saying that Conyers "is simply trying to rehash old debates." But something as potentially administration-shaking as this is brushed away as nothing more than "old debates"?
This just smells like Karl Rove.
But it's all just going to blow over, isn't it? Not because it's insignificant, not because no crime was committed, but because the machinery in place is so organized and motivated that everyone involved is well protected.
It makes me want to love Big Brother. Is it thirteen o'clock yet? Red is the new blue.
