Happy Happy Holidayz...

To those who have been naughty - I am coming to get you.

To those who have been nice - Merry Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza, & New Year.

FYI, to all those wishing for a "Merry Fitzmas" - I would never ever sully the holiday experience, cheer and memories by linking them to the evil doers I am investigating/prosecuting. Sorry :(

Would President Hastert Pardon...

An exercise in the hypothetical...

Who Loves Ya, Baby...?

I loved Kojak as a kid, still do.

Maybe I need a signature gadget/companion/tag line like a lollipop, parrot, Ferrari , or pimp informer?

Lawmakers Hasten to Return Abramoff Gifts

Dec 20, 2005

No Comment...

Let's just say that I smiled when the NY Times called me for a quote about a story they are running tomorrow.
Jack Abramoff is discussing a plea deal that would grant him a reduced sentence in exchange for testimony against former political and business associates - mainly Republican lawmakers and aides suspected of accepting favors in exchange for legislative work.
It is funny how white (and they are almost always caucasian) collar criminals are so afraid of doing time. After they come to the realization that their deep pockets and high priced lawyers aren't enough they sing the most beautiful music you ever heard.

DeLay's Job Description...

48 visits to golf clubs and resorts with lush fairways; 100 flights aboard company planes; 200 stays at hotels, many world-class; and 500 meals at restaurants, some averaging nearly $200 for a dinner for two.
This should be an inspiration to crooks, cheats and liars everywhere.

Trouble, oh we got trouble,
Right here in Capital City!
With a capital "T"
That rhymes with "B"
And that stands for Bush,

We've surely got trouble!
Right here in Capital City,

Gotta figger out a way

Trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble, trouble...

Mothers of Capital City!
Heed the warning before it's too late!
Watch for the tell-tale sign of corruption!
The moment your son leaves the house,
Does he rebuckle his knickerbockers below the knee?
Is there a nicotine stain on his index finger?
A dime novel hidden in the corn crib?
Is he starting to memorize jokes from Jon Daily?
Are certain words creeping into his conversation?
Words like 'stay the course?"
And 'so's your old man Cheney?"
Well, if so my friends,
Ya got trouble,
Right here in Capital City!
With a capital "T"
And that rhymes with "B"
And that stands for Bush.
We've surely got trouble!
Right here in Capital City!
Remember the Maine, Plymouth Rock,the Golden Rule and Jimmy Carter!
Oh, we've got trouble.
We're in terrible, terrible trouble.
That game with the 535 numbered seats is a devil's tool!
Oh yes we got trouble, trouble, trouble!
With a "T"! Gotta rhyme it with "B"!
And that stands for Bush!!!

Jet Blue...

If you are flying anytime soon or over the holidays, show some respect and say a prayer because there may be U.S. military personnel killed in Iraq in the cargo hold of your domestic commercial flight.

Please set a timetable for withdrawal and bring them home with respect, dignity and hopefully alive, Mr. President. I would heed Rep. Jack Murtha's advice, while letting Dick Cheney serve out what little time he has left attending the funerals of these brave sons and daughters.

In my line of work I am judged by my actions and results, not words. Demonstrate that you both know the meaning of the word "heroes" and not behave like it is just another word scrolling by on your teleprompters to manipulate the hearts and minds of America.

This Is The End...

of a long and productive day and work week. Sometimes you just have to say "darn it" and take a night off from the office to keep your sanity and celebrate with a few pitchers of beer and your buds from the office.
Last night was one of those nights. A few co-workers and I decided to go to the new Lucky Strike bowling alley here in DC - the ONLY bowling alley within the city limits...messed up huh, Brooklyn?
Anyway, it was going to be the DOJ vs. some of the FBI agents we work with...yes, the same agents Libby and Rove lied to on several occasions (we are still busting their chops over that). As you may know, bowling is part skill, part luck and part psyching out your opponents with trash talk and mental intimidation. Having left my ball and lucky shoes in Chicago I was a little nervous about being rusty, but was determined to do my best so I wore:
  • my lucky sweats from Amherst College (torn knee, a few sentimental grass stains from rugby),
  • my lucky sleeveless (altered in 1983 by an ex-girlfriend after we saw Flashdance) New York Rangers Jersey (#2 - Brad Park), and
  • a jewel encrusted skull cap and gold chain (with wall clock) personally given to me by Flavor Flav for unofficially helping him and Public Enemy out of a free speech jam once.

The DOJ Ballbusters as we call ourselves were all ready to open a can of whoop ass on the G-men until we got there and I saw this! --->

Needless to say, after going home, changing and then going all the way back to Gallery Place my confidence had waned and I didn't do as well as I had hoped - bowling a 169, 198, and 220.

Today I sent for my shoes and ball and am looking for a real bowling alley in the suburbs that allows players and young brothers!

And talk about one tough gag...I mean gig - I bet President Bush will get a chuckle from some of these humorous Baby Bush Toys.

Political Persuasion...


Maria sent me this link and it was fun to take. And to answer the obvious question, let's just say that I fell somewhere in the middle. ;)

Hot Diggity Dog...

I am so hungry that I could eat a horse, figuratively speaking of course. Although there was this one time in France that I had a really big steak and it was a little tough....

I just finished deposing a very cooperative Viveca Novak. My cases are all coming together now, but I have to finish wolfing down my pastrami on rye and chug this Yoohoo courtesy of her lawyer Hank Schuelke before grabbing a cab back to my office and the mission at hand - fighting for truth, justice and the American way.

Finally, feeling a bit sheepish here, but can anyone recommend how best to remove a mustard stain from wool slacks?

Work With Me Here...

Normally I am a Brooks Brother's off-the-rack kind of dresser, but last week I picked up a few Gianluca Isaia Napoli three-button side vent suits and I was in love. Who knew that suits had real working buttons on the sleeves?

With tomorrow being a big day and all, I think I will take one for a spin, yes? Coupled with a gorgeous Brioni herringbone shirt with French/Freedom cuffs, understated silk tie, and clean underwear I am ready to Rock n Roll!
PS: Don't worry, I don't use "product" on my face and still prefer my Old Spice speedstick and cologne, but I did retire the brylcreem a few years back. ;)

Fashion don't?

Chances of Snow...

tomorrow night in D.C. around 80%.

Chances of incriminating testimony from Viveca Novak tomorrow - 100%.

I love snow, origami, and testimony under oath. And I don't care what
Larry O'Donnell or Bob Luskin say because to me it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Heat In The Kitchen...

too much for Rove aide.

I deposed Ms. Ralston in early November and now she has "moved" over to Commerce because of "too much pressure."

Susan, come work for me at the DOJ, I promise great coffee, doughnuts and no pressure, just gentle encouragement. :D

UPDATE: OOPS - Apparently the Philippine press is about as believable as Judy Miller and the NY Times.

In Case You Are Interested....

I appeared this morning to present information to a new grand jury in the CIA leak investigation. This was my first court appearance since the Oct. 28 indictment of Vice President Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

I am your tax dollars hard at work. Think ducks in a barrel. :)

Karl Rove Drives A Jaguar...

a manly man's car, now more than ever.

Americablog is doing great work by shining the spotlight on Ford Motor Company crumbling to pressure from America's Taliban.

"Ford Motor Co.'s decision to cease advertising in gay publications for its Jaguar and Land Rover luxury brands is part of a truce between the auto maker and the American Family Assn. (AFA) to avert a threatened boycott by the right-wing Christian conservative group.
As part of the latest agreement hammered out Nov. 29, sources confirm Volvo Cars will continue to advertise in the publications but will use generic ads not tailored to the gay community. In addition, Ford has agreed not to sponsor any future gay and lesbian events but will continue to maintain its employee policies, such as same-sex partner benefits."
Personally, I won't be buying any Ford products in the near future let alone their stock. Think about it - Ford just destroyed any goodwill it had with a group whose spending power will hit $610 billion this year. That figure is not far behind African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans in buying power. Maybe Ford should consider selling those groups cars designed to only drive in reverse to send them back to Africa and Mexico?
This reminds me of how Henry Ford, Sr. was uber anti-semetic and a Nazi sympathizer personally decorated for his support by Adolph Hitler in 1938. Perhaps you missed his bestseller?
I think I am going to look into this action by Ford and AFA as both a hate crime and a conspiracy.

Quote Of The Month...

“Money is an important part of free speech."
Rep. Tom Feeney (R-Fla.), the new chairman of the House Conservatives Fund, which is holding a fundraiser on Dec. 8, said he and his group are unapologetic about asking for money from lobbyists or any like-minded individuals.

Tom, didn't you go golfing in Scotland with Jack Abramhoff and Tom DeLay?

Guilty Congressman Duke Cunningham's "Co-Conspirator" Also Ran A DC "Hospitality Suite, With Several Bedrooms"
National Journal
Sometimes we read too many political clips and overlook some amazing things staring us in the face. Among those in Monday's edition, this little factoid, culled from Sunday's San Diego Union-Tribune blockbuster digging deeper into the Duke Cunningham's relationship with "co-conspirator No. 1," a.k.a. lobbyist Brent Wilkes.
According to the U-T, Wilkes also "ran a hospitality suite, with several bedrooms, in" DC -- "first in the Watergate Hotel and then" in a Capitol Hill hotel. Come again? [more]
These cases are starting to make me blush. To be thorough I will now have to review Judy Miller's tax returns and check the contents in her safety deposit box!

TIME's Man of the Year..!

From the email bag Jodee sends me this message:
You DA MAN! Time magazine has an article asking former Men of the Year who they think should be this year's Man of the Year. ("Patrick! Patrick! He's our man! If he can't do it ...!")
JAMES LOVELL 1968 One of three Apollo 8 astronauts, pioneers on the epic quest for the moon - "I suggest special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. In this age of cover-ups, political intrigue, corporate greed and not knowing whom to believe, it is refreshing to see a person who searches for and uncovers misdeeds, unencumbered by any partisanship."
Many thanks Jimbo, but I didn't make the list for voting, darn!
Who Should Be Person of the Year? TIME's Person of the Year is the person or persons who most affected the news and our lives, for good or for ill, and embodied what was important about the year. Who do you think fits the bill this year?
Steve Jobs
Pope Benedict XVI
Bill and Melinda Gates
The Google Guys
J.K. Rowling
Rick Warren
Condoleezza Rice
Valerie Plame
Mother Nature
George W. Bush
Lance Armstrong
It is hard to compete with an iPod pusher, Condi "Ferragamo" Rice and two bicyclists from Texas.

70% Chance For Snow...

100% chance for indictments. The snow is expected here in DC around noon. More indictments might not be that soon, but are on the horizon!

Have a great week!

If you have any, use them, Denny! Never fear, the House leadership can't stop the DOJ's wheels of justice from churning. We are already investigating Cunningham's ties with the defense contractors, Mitchell Wade of MZM Inc. and Brent Wilkes of ADCS Inc. -- I assure you no stone will go unturned, no misdeeds will go unpunished.
