Will Fitzgerald go After Cheney???

Chief Libby trial blogger says she believes prosecutor ‘wants Cheney,’ ‘won’t rest on laurels’
Raw Story

This weekend, RAW STORY interviewed Marcy Wheeler, one of the blogosphere’s most tireless observers and analysts of the CIA leak investigation and the I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby Trial.

In the interview, she revealed that she believes that Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald will press forward with his investigation, and that his ultimate target is Vice President Dick Cheney: “I’m not entirely convinced that Fitzgerald’s done. I used to be conservative on that, believing that he was done. But there are little snippets of hints that he’s not.”

I used to be conservative on that, believing that he was done. But there are little snippets of hints that he’s not….”

“We figured out that Armitage was the Novak/Woodward source in March,” Wheeler said in an implicit critique of mainstream coverage of the Plame story, “and we were able to do that because we were able to do things that journalists wouldn’t do.”…

Wheeler believes that Fitzgerald will bring that indefatigable nature to this trial: “I think Fitzgerald clearly wants Cheney and he’s not the kind of person who rests on his laurels after getting one conviction.

HL’s Take
Does Fitzgerald really have the Cojones to go after the Evil Dick? I doubt it. Even if he does, by the time they get to a trial and conviction Cheney will be out of office. Bush will surely pardon him before that happens. Come on Pat. Lets start speeding up the process here.

Major Swift Boat Donor To Kerry: “You’re A Hero”

Major Swift Boat Donor To Kerry: “You’re A Hero”

Bob Geiger.com
Excerpt:
There are some things that you just don’t want to read about or watch on a full stomach — this is one of those.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on Tuesday to consider the nomination of Sam Fox, a wealthy St. Louis businessman, to be the new U.S. Ambassador to Belgium. While it is not unusual for big political donors to be rewarded with ambassadorships — and Fox is a huge donor to all things Republican — what made everyone take note of this guy is that Fox gave a whopping $50,000 to help fund the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth smear campaign against John Kerry in 2004.

And in being questioned by the Senate panel yesterday, Fox had to face one of the senior members of that committee in… Senator John Kerry.

What followed was riveting theater, with Kerry coldly staring down a clearly-nervous Fox and Bush’s nominee withstanding a barrage of questions from Kerry that the Massachusetts Senator nicely referred to as questions of Fox’s “judgment” while many of us would have just flat-out called him a scumbag.

Kerry: …notwithstanding the comments you made, you did see fit to contribute a very significant amount of money in October to a group called Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, correct?

Fox: Correct.

Kerry: Why would you do that given what you just said about how bad they are?

Fox: Well, Senator, I have to put it in the proper context and bear with me. Marilyn and I have lived the American dream — there’s no question about it. My father came here with the clothes on his back and the Fox family and the Woodman family have truly lived the American dream that’s been very, very good to us….

Kerry: So, well, who asked you to give to the SBVT?

Fox: I can’t tell you specifically who did because, you know, I don’t remember. As a matter of fact, if I…

Kerry: You have no recollection of why you gave away $50,000?

Fox: I gave away $50,000 because I was asked to.

Kerry: But you have no recollection of who asked you to give away $50,000?

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL), who was chairing the meeting, told Fox that he found his answers to Kerry “somewhat unsatisfying” and said that “The swift boat ads were of a different degree, even in the ugly arena of politics. They were extraordinarily well publicized, that there was essentially a fraud being perpetrated on the American people. It had a profound impact on the election.”

And Obama tied a nice bow around the whole afternoon by basically calling Fox, who spent the entire time disavowing any knowledge of the Swift Boaters’ mission or methods, a liar.

HL’s Take
And that is precisely why Barack Obama can become President and Kerry can’t. Honesty. Obama calls him a liar, Kerry doesn’t bother to fight back and just accepts the loss that didn’t even really happen. Of course this Fox guy will probably get his post anyway. Hell Kerry will probably even vote Yes for him. At least we know Obama won’t. Thats lots more, check out the whole article.

send em inFrom Kevin O’Keefe

Vin Scelsa continues to play Kakistocracy cuts on WFUV, the largest college radio station in NYC area. He seems to respond to requests to play it, but I have not got a response to a request for on air interview. I would guess he is also continuing to play it on his Sirius show.

Kevin glad to see the band is getting some play in NYC. Vin Scelsa is the best. I was listening to him back in the 80’s on WNEW-FM in NYC. Check out the best new protest band on the scene Spicewood 7, and their album Kakistrocracy.
