Gee, that angel/devil character looks very familiar. Where have I seen that face before????

I like the subtle finger pointing, too.

Was this in one of today's papers?

I prefer an Indictment Template to an Etch-a-Sketch, but comic relief has served us well of late.

An addendum, if I may...
Hasn't it been too long between "Dreaming of an Indict Christmas" and Cinco de Fitzo?

Yup, art imitates life. That devil/angel character of the Gerbil can depict the evil doers in the world especially the corrupted politicans of the decisions that they make when choosing "Graft." We all have that angel/devil character carried within ourselves everyday. And that we have to decide each and everyday to do good or do bad. And that decision that we make will shape our lives for the good or for the bad.

Great depiction, Stephen!

Folks,

Here is more news: (besides FItz's lunch falling on the keyboard. We must alert the media on that. The journalists would surely have field day with that story and run like gerbils and use that story as front page news!)

1. ABC News makes up memo from White House press secretary

"Earlier today, RAW STORY linked to a story by ABC News which purported to be a memo from the new White House press secretary Tony Snow. ABC News has confirmed the memo was intended as satire, though no indication was made on the story."

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/print?id=156238&cacheKill=318544
Snow job just got in as press secretary and this is journalism???

2. In Gerbilnews, words from the Getbil has come back and bite him:
From Thinkprogress:

"Bush Was For The Ninety-Four Billion Before He Was Against It
On the campaign trail President Bush blasted Sen. John Kerry for voting against $87 billion in funding for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Kerry was concerned that there wasn’t sufficient Congressional oversight over the disbursement of funds."

"Now, President Bush is threatening to veto $94 billion in emergency spending that he proposed for troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. (Bush is concerned that Congress has added too much additional spending for unrelated projects.) Here’s an excerpt from today’s White House press briefing:
QUESTION: And if that number that comes back in is over $94.5 billion, no question it will be vetoed?
MCCLELLAN: The president has made it very clear. He would veto legislation that goes above and beyond what he called for.
Bush’s veto threat may be appropriate. There are some shameful pork barrel projects tacked onto the Senate bill, including a $700 million “railroad to nowhere.”

3. In Gerbilnews, Stepford wife, Laura's chip needs to be repaired.

From Thinkprogress:

"Yesterday in an interview with CNN’s John King, First Lady Laura Bush said “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with singing [the national anthem] in Spanish.” King then reminded the First Lady that her husband said the national anthem should only be sung in English. She quickly reversed her position, telling King “I think it should be sung in English, of course.”

Bush Not Above the Law; Will Run in '08
5/4/2006 - Rick Sabian
Print This Page
Washington - President Bush calmed fears that the Executive Branch was becoming too powerful by announcing that he will win re-election in 2008. At his afternoon press-conference he said, "My fellow and former Americans-our country is now named Bushistan or the United States of Subservia-- I have come here today to announce that I will not run for re-election-I have already won it."

Aides then passed out to members of the press detailed reports of the amazing campaign battles to take place in 2008 based on computerized statistical models. Kathleen Harris showed the State by State tally of votes. Karl Rove explained why Bush could run for yet another Term.

Mr. Bush continued, "So I ask you, why should we spend 1.2 trillion dollars on an election campaign whose outcome is already known? This is the ultimate conservative fiscal policy. Forget the election and all that spending on TV ads and private jets.

We can take that money and fund research into how to dismantle the other two branches of government. I'm replacing the three-part system with the Holy Trinity. The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost shall be me, my father, and someone in a spooky Clansman cloak.

The Whitehouse Press Corps liked that the news was all prepackaged for them to unquestioningly disseminate to the public without thought.

The average man on the street has taken his new domination quite well. Most figure that Bush isn't smart enough to do any harm, so they freely give up civil liberties in exchange for being able to sleep well at night. Average man Bill Slider said, "Yes, the President says that he will not follow 750 laws passed by Congress. Is he acting above the law? Sure, but he's breaking the law, so you don't have to. I can't wait not to have to vote for him in 2008!"

I think adding treason to the list of offenses, high crimes and misdemeanors, indictments to the infamous 23 is well,

justice.

Justice well served? Oh, well that would be all of those behind bars and no pardons by the erstwhile Devil-Decider-Corruptor-chose-which-laws-to-abolish-for-selfish-reasons-by-whim-King-George

Oh and King George? well, behind bars as well, perhaps Sing Sing or Leavenworth...

Folks,

Here is an update of the Enron Trial. As we say in basketball terminology: IT'S GARBAGE TIME!

From WSJ:

Limping Toward the Finish Line at the Enron Trial
Posted by Peter Lattman

"The Houston Chronicle lays out the trial schedule. Remaining witnesses include an encore from former broadband chief Ken Rice; Marge Nadarsky, a former Enron employee who handled Photofete, the now infamous dot-com that Lay and Skilling invested in; and a few more expert and character witnesses. Sadly, the defense reportedly said it was not going to call Skilling wife Rebecca Carter, which we suspected could’ve provided some sorely needed courtroom fireworks. According to the Chron, Judge Lake says he plans to charge the jury on May 15 and hold closing arguments shortly thereafter. He wants to start the separate bank fraud trial against Lay on Thursday, May 18. That trial, which is before Judge Lake instead of a jury, is expected to last a week."

"Just down the hall from the Lay and Skilling trial on the ninth floor of the eyesore that is the Houston federal courthouse building, jury selection began yesterday in the first of three retrials of five former Enron broadband executives. Their first trial ended in a hung jury. Judge Vanessa Gilmore said the trial of the broadband unit’s former CFO Kevin Howard and its in-house accountant Michael Krautz is expected to last three weeks. Howard and Krautz are accused of accounting fraud; the other broadband retrials involve defendants accused of insider trading and making misleading statements to investors."

In a nutshell, the Enron case may be wrapped up the week of May 15.. So, far Lay's testimony was very weak and Skilling made matters worst when he fell apart on the stand being crossexamined by prosecutor, Sean Berkowitz. So, stay tuned!!!

Laura Bush is probably an enabler but make no mistake she enjoys the power, wealth, and she wants to punish those who don't agree with her hubby.

She is much too willing to trot herself out when needed, all fakeness on display. Laura Bush might be even sicker or devious than her husband but make no mistake, she knows what is going on in the executive branch.

Life imitating art too. Mr. Pitt you pin reality. You'll be doing another cartoon after the GJ comes back so get ready.
You do good Fitz by not spilling anything on your tie yes I proud.
Did you wipe your face and hands? Just put a napkin on your lap next time.
Laura Bush was so funny she can't get her stories right. GW wanted the spanish vote so he spoke and sang spanish twice. Now he doesn't need them he doesn't care about them. Thats the act of the new religious thinking. Use any/everybody then forget about them. Katrina victims were shown how this Administration feels about the poor and all minorities.
I know if California had an earthquake Bush wouldn't lift a finger to help me or any minorites here.

Ever put together the little fibs that Laura likes to tell in the women's magazines? All designed to make her look like a wonderful wife, mom and woman of the year and her husband and the Bush family the best since sliced bread.

She should be Karl's "mini me".

If they removed the chip from the "Stepford wife" Laura's head, then she certainly wouldn't be the "mimi me" of Porkrind!

Please understand I had to do a "cartoon lite" for Fitz's head-against my natural instincts. Lets face it, there is little distortion of features to begin with.

It has made me very happy to hear from you all! I recall seeing a lawyer calm a client before, and his expression never changed and there was no perceptable body language. The legal equivalent of a no-look basketball pass, I guess.

All the best
