I didn’t find out about Bush commuting Libby’s sentence until I got home last night at about 8 P.M.
It was such a beautiful Summer day here in Hollywood Yesterday that I decided it was time to put all else aside and try out my new surfboard that I had bought a couple of months ago. The wave report said that it would be OK out there, nothing special, but I could wait no longer. I packed up the car and headed to Ventura County Line which is about an hour drive. Well it was hot, sunny, and the waves were happening. It was a great day. I gotta get out to the beach more often.
Of course you had to expect at least a commutation, if not a full pardon of Libby by Bush. Bush Sr. pardoned all the Iraq contra conspirators. That’s just they way the Bush’s do business. Go ahead break the law, the law we swore to uphold, if you get caught, we will get you off the hook. They have rubbed The American People’s noses in it once again. They have told us in no uncertain terms that they are above the law. We stole our way in here so we can break any law, start any war, and there is nothing you can do about it. So be a good American, shut the hell up, and pay your taxes so we can steal even more from you. No good job, tough luck. No health insurance, f**k off and die. We can do whatever we want, but if a democrat lies about getting a BJ, well then we will have to impeach him, even though you will never impeach us. As Yakov Smirnoff used to say, What a Country.

House member Duncan Hunter, is one of the most vile members of the US Congress, even for a Republican This is the guy who said that the prisoners in Guantanamo were living in a country club, and eating gourmet meals. This guy is a heartless scumbag you may remember him from a comic we did on June 15, 2005 called Duncan Hunter and Lunch at Guantanamo
Hunter went on Hardball, which was being hosted by Al Sharpton, yesterday. Sharpton asked Hunter about Ann Coulter who has endorsed Hunter for President. As you remember from a story we did last week, Coulter was left looking foolish and bellowing out a bunch of garbage after Elizabeth Edwards called her on another talk show and told her to stop spewing all the hate speech which Coulter is famous for. This bitch is so nasty and disgusting we even did a remake of The Exorcist to try to help her out with her little evil problem called The Exorcist Part 3 Of course it didn’t help.
Coulter who has called for the murder of many Democrats and Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is more nauseating then ever. Duncan Hunter in the Sharpton interview called Coulter a Great American. In the republican view great Americans kill anyone who disagrees with them, and lock up suspected prisoners forever without ever filing charges against them. Both of these psycho’s belong in a mental institution but in Bush’s America they are members of Government, and Television talking heads. Here is the video of the Sharpton Hunter exchange.

The US Army, in a ever more desperate attempt to land recruits for Bush’s debacle in Iraq, Afghanistan, and possibly Iraq, has decided to stage a video game contest to try to lure young iimpressionable kids who they hope are too stupid to know the difference between killing on a video screen, and killing in real life. I’m sure they won’t mention that in the real Army the enemy shoots back, and wants to kill you even more they you want to kill them. Starting tomorrow on the 4th of July, The army will be handing out thousands of dollars to the kid who can kill, maim, blow up, and dismember the most “enemy’s.” in order to get into the tournament the kids (who have to be at least 17) agree to be visited by an Army recruiter, who will tell every lie in the book in order to get the kid to sign up for the hell that is the U.S. Military. Here is an excerpt form the article in Raw Story
Gears of War is one of a dozen titles in which players can compete for a $200,000 prize pool in the inaugural Army Gaming Championships, set to begin July 4. The venture provides the Army another avenue to reach tech-savvy recruits — though participants must be willing to be contacted by an Army recruiter — as it struggles to maintain its ranks in the fifth year of the Iraq war.
“That is where the kids are. It’s a venue where we can tell the Army’s story,” Louise Eaton, a media and Web specialist with the Army, tells RAW STORY. Video Games, especially the Pentagon-produced America’s Army, provide “an experience in the simulation world of what the Army’s like.”
Yeah except, as I said, the part about you getting killed. Heres more.
Gears of War is rated M, meaning it is inappropriate for children under age 17, and Web site Double Viking rated it the fourth-most-violent video game ever made, calling the game’s gore “as graphic as it comes.”
“Enemies limbs are often perforated and torn off by a barrage of machine gun fire and close encounters usually result in a chainsaw to the neck, leaving SOMEBODY headless,” Double Viking says. “Otherwise enemies simply explode into bits of blood and bone, with much of the end product splattering all over the camera - and everywhere else.”
Sounds like a fun time hey, Gotta love the Army, always coming up with new ways to bring in the cannon fodder.

Here is what some of the democrats are saying about Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s prison sentence for perjury and obstruction of justice.
Senator John Edwards
“Only a president clinically incapable of understanding that mistakes have consequences could take the action he did today. President Bush has just sent exactly the wrong signal to the country and the world. In George Bush’s America, it is apparently okay to misuse intelligence for political gain, mislead prosecutors and lie to the FBI. George Bush and his cronies think they are above the law and the rest of us live with the consequences. The cause of equal justice in America took a serious blow today.”
You can read what other Democrats had to say about the pardon
Ok Democrats, what are you going to do about it? Nothing. I suppose, the way they have done nothing about every illegal act Bush has committed over the past 6 years. A majority of the American people now favor impeachment. It’s being talked about all over the internet. But of course the democrats (with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, must be good lackeys and never go against King George. Dems will probably fumble away a 3rd straight Presidential election, and one that would be the easiest win ever. Good work guys
