Cigars & Hotel Bars...

An Imperfect Hero - Joseph Wilson's War

"Novak was a friend of Karl Rove, and Judith Miller had breakfasted with Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis Libby, so many times that they were rumored to be having an affair. And when Woodward appeared on TV talk shows, he behaved almost as if he were a member of the Bush cabinet. All had interesting stories. Wilson began getting fewer messages from journalists. Today it's relatively easy to obtain an interview with him.

Wilson is waiting for things to come together as he watches the cumbersome American judicial system at work. He pays close attention to the respective fates of Dick Cheney, Karl Rove and Lewis Libby. Even during interviews, he maintains the same, consistent approach. He sits in alternating hotel bars in alternating cities, places his mobile phone on a table, gazes at the flat screen TVs behind the bars, keeps answering the same questions and waits for something to happen in the world outside." <more>

An interesting read. I like Spiegel - often ordering shirts and ties from their catalog.

LOL at your endnote!

Will save the read as a reward for getting my expense report to my tax preparer this glorious autumn day in southern Vermont.

While I'm here, just a note to say that Jordan would have made some of you proud yesterday - in the "goals" section on his "Who Am I?" poster for language arts, he included "Impeach Bush" graphics. He also is proving to be a fearless leader and superb team player on the soccer field this season! Once he gets settled into the 7th grade routine, he might start blogging again. Or not. But in any case, please know that your encouragement of his efforts has had a lasting very positive impact. IMHO of course. ;-)

Have a great day/night, everybody!

D.C. and the MSM are a cesspoll of corruption causing the death of this country. There are very few in Congress that one can bother to trust anymore.

Joe Wilson was right.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Authorities found the mutilated bodies of 60 men in Baghdad in the 24-hours ending Tuesday morning, and at least 18 people died in violence around the country, including 11 in a midday bombing in the capital.

The bomb, planted under a car in the primarily Sunni neighborhood of Dora in south Baghdad, exploded just before noon, police Lt. Muhammed al-Baghdadi said.

Those killed, and the four others injured, were waiting in line outside a bakery, witnesses told Associated Press Television News. The blast flattened the building.

"Even the bakeries aren't safe from the terrorists," yelled a distraught young man at the scene, saying even more victims were buried under the rubble. "These were innocent people."

This Congress is a joke against humanity like the 95th Congress was the greatest crime against children. Everyone knows who the real terrorists are anyway.

Well, thank you for letting the donut bloggers know where you shop, Fitz! LOL! I'm not telling you where I shop!

I know that everyone fells that Wilson is a hero. But, I have to agree to what Mr. Wilson said: he is just a U.S. citizen that is doing his civic duty and that is hold his elected officials. I don't Wilson should be put on that podium as the only representative of a "hero." I feel that everyone on this blog, everyday folks, parents, and young people are hoeroes in this country. They are heroes because they are the few people who will separate themselves from the masses and do something for this country and for others. That is what I took away from that article.. The MSM glamorizes the celebrities and pick and choose who is a hero in this country. It is the every folks that make a difference like Joe and Valerie Wilson..

I'm sure that the Wilsons will be vindicated soon.
And I hope that they continue to be strong, and best of luck on their lawsuit against the Corrupt Evildoers!

Good Morning Justice Bloggers & Fitzie...

I was just checking in for a fast post and I couldn't help but read the Wilson article (thanks Fitzie)

I got really choked up because I hate to see people who really care about truth and deomocracy be treated so horrendously by this evil regime (White House, Congress and MSM) I absolutely hate the media for being so complicit in the White House vandetta!!! It also makes me very angry.

I really believe in the Wilson's cause and of course Fitzie's fight too! I also think that the Wilsons and Fitzie will be vidicated in time...but it is hard to watch the damage done to good honest people...I am sure the monetary damage to the Wilsons has been great...I hope they recover in time.

But then so many of the American people have lost monetarily to this corrupt White House regime!

Ok as Jackie always says...Be sure to smile today..I am putting on my smile because I know the fight has just begun and WE are going to win, Justice Bloggers!!! Please pass me the Krispy Kremes...

SPB -- I got your email..will get back to you later...busy day.

Nan -- good to hear the update on Jordan.

Now this is scary for the corrupted GOP:
From Talkleft.com:

Another poll, this one conducted by The NY Times and CBS News, brings more bad news for Republicans. Perhaps the most telling finding:

Americans - including women and suburbanites - are more likely to say that Democrats, and not Republicans, share their moral values.


GOP is in a pickle!

CC:

Thanks for the message. No big rush getting back to me.

Cheers!
