Every Now And Then We Lose A Few...

of the best and the brightest people on staff here at Justice who go on to bigger and better things. Most burn out over time due to the long hours and low pay, some leave over matters of principle (e.g. Ashcroft and Gonzalez), while others are seduced by the sex appeal and allure of the blogging lifestyle.
Case in point, David Lat, the editor at WONKETTE was previously part of Team DOJ and is sorely missed. Get to know him from this article in the New Yorker that outed him last year as a serial blogger, a man, and an assistant U.S. Attorney.
“The blog really reflects two aspects of my personality,” he said over lunch recently. “I am very interested in serious legal issues as well as in fun and frivolous and gossipy issues. I can go from the Harvard Law Review to Us Weekly very quickly.”
"Lat, who has a boyish face, lives in Manhattan and commutes to New Jersey, and he writes his blog entries in his spare time. Like A3G, he graduated from Harvard College and Yale Law School, and he worked briefly at a big New York law firm. Although his current job as a prosecutor has required him to pare back his life style, he says, “I still hoard toiletries from luxury hotels all over the world.” Lat interviewed for a Supreme Court clerkship, with Justice Antonin Scalia, but he didn’t get it.

A lot of people want your time, and blogging would be "normal" if you work so much you don't have a life.

My Dearest Patrick,

We Love You.

Is it true that if Karl Rove is further than two miles from Bush that Bush can't utter an intelligible (forget about articulate) phrase and forgets his wife's name?

Momma Babs Bush is Number One.
Daddy is Poppy, and my Uncle Johnnies live in KILLINGWORTH, and they're the one's who give me the money, so that makes it easier for me to remember that I am the war president."- W.

"NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- A state official who helped send former Gov. John G. Rowland to prison in a corruption case told a federal grand jury that she received many of the same expensive hotel getaways, lavish dinners and limousine rides that were used to bribe the governor's office..."

Newsflash. This is the former Kommissioner of Kidnapping.

We must have faith that the Light will win over the dark and evil forces. However, I would not make jokes about the cabal and celebrate before victory because of the seriousness of the situation.

Kathleen,

Here's aggreement on W's strange family relationship. Extreme competiveness drives the man and is Babs fault mostly.

cjt-

You should read Tarpley's Unofficial Biography of Poppy. It's free online.

You should also read, "A man called Intrepid," by William Stephenson. (I read it three times.)

And you should read, "The Assault on Truth, Freud's suppression of the seduction theory," by Jeffrey Masson.

It puts together a naahh-sa pik-ch of the various frauds Yale is involved in, including being liaisons to HMOs (Kaiser, in particular), the fact that the CIA got it's start with the OSS, which recruited from Yale, (Look into "Unit 731"),... And note that the Bush uncles and cousins still "perform" at Yale, ie., are involved in the Yale law school, and on the Yale hospital board, and are involved in the management of "The Yale Corporation" - their "endowment fund" - you know, the guys who invest in prisons and Sudanese oil. You know. The Riggs Bank, and now JBush & Co. Wolfie and Libby hung out there, don't forget.

Want to see FRAUD? Dig around where we know...

It's no joke. These people are dastardly. Makes ya wannt look back to, of course, the solid facts.


It's always good to be a chemist, because we know about things like thermodynamics and the finer quantum matters, and our BS-Detectors are on a log scale (super sensitive). It becomes easy to predict what the crooks may want. Energy is Power, in a very literal sense.

Fitz your always letting us know the good people in the DOJ that would other wise go unnoticed. Life has a place for all of us and this might be a new direction and bring better things ahead. Talent stands even when the job is gone. You make anyone who has the luck of meeting you a better person.

Babs and Poppy = the recipe for the 'decider'. The whole family is nuts. And I bet you a dollar that Laura is not the innocent, little enabler she appears to be either.

It is great to hear more positive and professional people that have gone unnoticed in this world. It is too bad that media sensationalize celebrities and put them on the podium as though they are the real heroes in the world. I am sorry but the real heroes are the average Americans and moms and dads that go the extra mile to shaped America and the future generations to come.

Amen Biloxi, amen. Get Porkrind fitted for his jumpsuit and slap down the criminals immediately.

Anon,

I am on it!! In fact, I'll make sure that Rambo Cheney is fitted for his orange jumpsuit too! I know that Porkrind is going to miss his favorite Hamhock dinner with rolls and gravy. Maybe, Fitz can ask the prison to prepare his favorite meal on his first day! We just want to make sure that Porkrind's belly is full of his favorites!!!

Karl Rove is too fat already. If he gets any fatter he won't be attractive to all the other guys in the prison shower!

But, hey, you never know with the prison fellows.. They may be turned on by Porkrind's fat physique. That may be "brokeback" uptime for the prison mates!!!
