I Like "Sticking It To The Man..."

and that Sprint "Fair & Flexible Plan" ad that continues something like this..."But sir, you ARE the Man. So you're sticking it to yourself?"

"Maybe" is his reply whereas mine is "No, I am a public servant letting the grand jury stick it to the Man!"

In case you were wondering about the grand jury:

"Will Fitzgerald issue indictments? Washington and cable news care about nothing else these days. The answer is: No, he won’t. The most Fitzgerald will do is ask his grand jury to issue indictments. It’s really all up to them. Which raises the question: who are they? A federal grand jury has 23 members."

"A typical Washington, D.C. grand jury is about 75% African American. Fitzgerald’s is slightly more than that. This is not the kind of group Karl Rove feels at home with. He has no professional experience trying to appeal to a group like this. He has been so unsuccessful at it that his boss’s job approval rating with African Americans is now 2%, which, factoring in the margin of error, could actually be zero. To make matters statistically and demographically much worse for Rove and Scooter Libby, only 12 of the 23 grand jurors have to agree to indict them."

Oh well for Rove! That is interesting. The world would really see Rove for he is with a interesting jury pool full of African-American jurors. Pay back is a bitch! And interesting Rove would squim at the site of an African-American when the Gerbil Administration has Condi. Oh, I'm sorry, she an oreo cookie and a member of the Gerbil family. She doesn't count! Also, what is interesting is that the Gerbil was criticized for not attending any of the NAACP events. Yet, a majority of African-Americans dissapprove Bush's performance. Racism and prejudice is all over this country. That is why the movie" Crash" won the Oscars. The movie was a valuable lesson to the definition of "racism"!

Very interesting jury selection. An fortunately the jurors regardless of race get to see and know my little angel. Racism is not in Patrick Fitzgerald's vocabulary. Never has been. Never will be. It is unfortunate thatthe jury gets to see a small number of racists in the defense. I still believe that like most people on this blog we are all colorblind. But, I must agree with spb that now Mr. Bush and his Administration has brought racism to the forefront. Fitz will succeed because people of all color will can see the truth that he is presenting. Race is not a factor.

There is a GOD! I was always brought up to believe that the wheels of justice grind slow but sure! and never step on the little guy on your way up, as you will surely meet him again on the way down.

Even an alien from Mars, or a person with green skin can see these guys for what they are. Race will not count a whisker in this debate. Now if you want to talk about Katrina...

I don't think race has much to do about it as Larry O. was implying. The thing that excites me most is that only 12 of 23 have to vote yes for indictments. BTW, I bet Karl is a smug Texass racist and he want to be "a man."

And you are righ,t anon. Race has nothing to do with it. It doesn't matter what nationality is on the jury panel as long as they are fair and partial. But, "racism" will play in to the downfall of Rove because the Gerbil Administration has had their noses up in the air for so long for certain classes of people and not simply African-Americans. And from reading Rove's rise to power, Rove only surrounded himself with the elite of friends in the GOP politics. And the Gerbil Administration showed their meaning of "racism and prejudice" in Hurricane Katrina and simply blacks but lower classes of people. And Condi, being black and shopping for shoes on that day in which people were begging for help in the Hurricane, didn't help matters in the true meaning of "democracy" from the Gerbil group. But, again, racism needs to be talked about and not be hidden under the rug. As Jackie said that we are color blinded on this blog as well as Fitz. But, it will be interested how he acts under a pool of jurors that are African-Americans or any minority group. It doesn't matter. All that matters is the 12 jurors of any race finds this man beyond the reasonable doubt: guilty. I think this culture shock of pool of jurors will certainly knock Rove down a peg!

"Karl has always said he loves chitlins and ham hocks." Oh gosh, I had to belly over laughing on that! Ha Ha! I don't think so. I want to see that. I would like to see the Gerbil say that he chows down on ham hocks!!! Yeah, the 2% went down to zero for the Gerbil. I want to be the fly on the wall if the judge make his mandatory sentence that he has to eat for the remainder of his prison term: chitlins, ham hocks, cornbread, blackeye peas.. Am I missing something else? My southern buddies would get a kick out of that!

SPB---Glad you enjoyed that.In the course of business we deal with a lot of middle income to poorer people and all of them never say much bad about BUSH.

If you ask them if they approve whats going on they just roll their eyes and some will say "what has he done for the Little People?"

Rove has a hard road to hoe as DC has many blighted areas and you only need 12.

With the 400mil oil G P and gas up high..he might as well plea bargin.

Well. until it affects them personally, poor or middle class, then you will see a change in people's mind. Now, my buddies on the West coast, on the other hand, are pretty pissed at Bush. But, you know, it has to take a majority of people to lock and demand the removal of the Gerbil. But, I think that gas price really have people pretty mad. In some areas in other states, they are charging 4.50 for gas. And thank goodness that I pay between 20.00-23.00 for gas. Some of my buddies are bellyaching over the gas price sbecause they are paying 60.00-100.00 for gas a week! We are still in a society of "me" attitude. "What has he done for the Little People?" as you said. Until they get fed up and something or someone is affected by the Gerbil company, then they won't have the "well, there's nothing we can do" attitude." That is why there are few people in this world who stand out from the crowd, separate themselves from the mass, and become greater leaders in life. While a majority of the people act like drones. A friend used to tell me that there are three people in this world: people who make things happen, people who watch things happen, and the people who want to know what happened.

I thought it was fried chicken but porkrinds would do.Seriously there quite a few people who could afford that place to eat or be seen---and i had heard he had a few "soulfood" for want of a better term entre's..........


And Chef Fitz-please no powdered soap in the mashed potatoes or grits(RE Tom Sellick in prison in that Movie-cant recall the name) or there will really be TurdBlossoms all over the place!

Its little known that ROVE worked for Ashcroft way back in the 80"s when he was Gov of MO--

PLUS A FLASHBACK--

In a mini-biography of K.Rove. They fail to mention that in 1992, Rove was FIRED from then-President George H.W. Bush's re-election campaign for LEAKING a negative story to the press concerning Bush fundraiser Robert Mosbacher.

Not only was Rove fired for leaking a story to the press, the "press" just so happened to be reporter BOB Novak, whom we all know is the reporter that wrote the story in which Rove has been implicated, outing CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Oh how interesting the past catches up with Rove. I didn't know that piece of info of Rove being fired from Daddy Bush. I did say on the blog that Novak has been around for a hundred years. Interesting that Rove crossed paths with Novak. And Rove worked with Ashcroft. Well, that explains the circle in Rove climbed to the stop. But, like everything, there is price for success. I think that his road of success will come to end. Fitz has the rope to hang him!

Final comment. Since Anon mention "soul food" as Rove's favorite meal, I wonder if the 'Signature' menu would pass on to the Gropinator of Kalifornia. From Thinkprogress.org:

Arnold Lectures on Importance of Fuel Efficient Vehicles, Owns Five Gas-Guzzling Humvees

"Appearing this morning on ABC’s This Week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) lectured the nation on the importance of driving fuel efficient vehicles:
STEPHANOPOULOS: And I was struck by the San Francisco Chronicle that said, Get used to $3 a gallon a gas, say the experts. Is that your message, too, that people just have to get used to this?
SCHWARZENEGGER: Well, not really. I think that we have to fight that. And I have encouraged people here in this state that we should fight back…
STEPHANOPOULOS: How do you fight back?
SCHWARZENEGGER: Well, we have to buy vehicles that are fuel-efficient…We want to inspire people to buy cars that are fuel-efficient, and also drive less, do more carpooling and so on. Because remember, the oil price is all based on supply and demand."

"GM has loaned Arnold a sixth Humvee that runs on hydrogen but he is “still ushered around in a state fleet of armor-plated, gas-burning Chevy Suburbans“

And Arnold is next on the chalk list to be booted by the California as governor again. All this talk about soul food has made me hungry. I need to eat. Have a good evening! Signing off!

SPB--this is how i found the ROVE-ASHCROFT CONNECTION--and thus SP FITZ ended up with it----follow this--
Attorney General John Ashcroft is refusing to appoint an independent prosecutor to investigate who in the administration leaked the name of a CIA operative to journalists. This despite the fact that Ashcroft has LONG-standing ties to one of the main suspects: President Bush's top political advisor Karl Rove.

Rove is best known as the driving force behind Bush's taking of the presidency, but he also worked for Ashcroft over the course of two decades.

"It goes all the way back to the mid 1980's when John Ashcroft first ran for governor.

Ashcroft's controversial appointment to the job he currently holds, attorney general. Rove lobbied intensely for his former employer's nomination after Ashcroft lost his senate seat(to a dead man).

Just as George W. Bush profited handsomely from the building of a stadium for his Texas Rangers baseball team, Karl Rove cashed in from the successful campaign in St. Louis to get a stadium built. The governor who signed the legislation?

John Ashcroft.

Now attorney general, Ashcroft is refusing to hand over the reigns of the criminal investigation of his political ally, former employee and longtime advisor, Karl Rove.

KIND OF EXPLAINS ASHCROFT'S STONEWALLING.....

SPB....I knew that the KR machination machine was considered
guility of this. It's been floating around for awhile. So,now
this guru of extremely bad acts(aka "dirty deeds") is in charge of
getting the duped Christian Wrong out to the polls in November to keep the Rs in control so that there won't be any investigations
into the voluminous criminal activities of the administration.

Well, I know that Fitz and his fabulous staff, are working at their own pace to put this thug in
the spotlight of "criminal activity". I know that justice has
a slow, painful process of conclusion....but, the sooner this
mafia-style pol is put into the limelight for his consistent misdeeds, the better for this country!

While I was at church you guys have been busy. All the food menu and info on the Rove/Ashcrof connection makes for good reading. Grandmanuk we have to start cleaning again at lease we know what we have to clean this time. Times have changed so much these kids don't know unless their taught about racism thank goodness most are clueless. Kids today make me laugh you really don't know who's who because their all the same. I really don't think they will allow this Administration to turn back the clock. I remember asking Peaches about Deep Throat/Watergate she told me all she knew about it was the movie Forrest Gump she was clueless that it really happen.

jackie.....I was too sick to go to church today, physically, not mentally. The kids don't get it!
They weren't of age to understand.
I heard this crazy thing on NPR about stories for 4-8 year-olds on
programming your kids to follow your liberal/conservative leanings.

I wouldn't have given one thought
to asking my kids to believe in anything other than what was right
1)everyone was created equal
2)there is no such thing as "inferior"
3)you must live with the choices you make

I may have been a little "out there", but I always encouraged my kids to make their own decisions (with support). I always felt that
if you allow a little person to make a decision in a small way, it gave him/her (I have both) permission and practice to make larger decisions in later life.

I have yet to be disappointed.

Miss Jackie, I think you are very right about Bush bringing the ugly racism to the forefront. It is hard to explain the ugly side of the human race that has been brought out by BushCo., maybe that is not fair....but that 'bring it on' or 'hang 'em from the highest tree' thinking and torture is 'quaint' has to have something to do with it.

Bush and Co. are very clever in how they hide their racism and their bulliness. Personally, I think you can see it in the administration to the military to the courts to the police forces to the prisons to the small jails to people on the street and finally it overtakes our children....now that is frightening.

Anon at 8:16 pm,

I finally got back on the blog. Interesting information about Ashcroft-Rove connection. Of course, those two stick together. Rove's company was paid 300,000 in consulting fees by Ashcroft's campaign for U.S. Senator in 1994. Then paid 700,000 over the courase of 3 campaigns. In addition, regarding Rove's being fired by Daddy bush in 1992:

"Sources close to the former president George H.W. Bush say Rove was fired from the 1992 Bush presidential campaign after he planted a negative story with columnist Robert Novak about dissatisfaction with campaign fundraising chief and Bush loyalist Robert Mosbacher Jr. It was smoked out, and he was summarily ousted" (Esquire Magazine, January 2003). Robert Novak provided some evidence of motive in his column describing the firing of Mosbacher by former Senator Phil Gramm: "Also attending the session was political consultant Karl Rove, who had been shoved aside by Mosbacher." Novak and Rove deny that Rove was the leaker, but Mosbacher maintains that "Rove is the only one with a motive to leak this. We let him go. I still believe he did it."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Rove
We know Rove leaked that information. He was groomed in graft in that elite world of politics. Speaking of Phil Gramm, Gramm is rumored to replace John Snow. And Gramm's wife Wendy was a member of Enron's board of directors for eight years. Interesting the circle of friends are all directly or indirectly involved in current scandal cases and graft!

That is the point.These folks probably not the country club set that Mr Rove is used to associating with.
