First of all don't forget to order The Cham Stones from Publish America. It will make a great Christmas present for all of your literate friends. And it will also help me put food in my mouth and such things.
Rumors are now flying all over the place. Cheney is rumored to be going to resign. Rumors say that Bush will replace Cheney with Condi Rice. Rumors say there are lots of people in the administration very upset about this who will not want Condi Rice. Of course there have already been rumors that Condi might run for president, opposing Hilary. Rumors. I love them. There are rumors that we have been visited by visitors from outer space. Rumors that bigfoot has been sighted once again. Rumors that the Loch Ness Monster is about to be found. Rumors this and rumors that. One rumor that might possibly have something behind it is that Fitzgerald may be trying to negotiate some deals with people who may be indicted, offering them easier terms than they might get after they are indicted if they agree to cooperate and testify against others. That is a rumor I might actually accept as having some credence. I suspect Cheney is far too egomaniacal and arrogant to resign - but what do I know?
What I do know is that these are exciting times and we are all waiting to see what is about to unfold. It seems pretty clear that Fitzgerald is going to seek some indictments although we don't really know how high up he is likely to go. It does seem that Cheney's office has been the center of a conspiracy to "get Wilson." As Cheney is probably the single most evil person on earth it is difficult to think otherwise. And you can be certain that Libby would not have acted without the approval of Cheney.
It was great that the Iraqis managed to get to the polls and vote in apparently large numbers in spite of their ongoing civil war. Was it not entirely predictable that the election would be challenged? But perhaps there is nothing unusual about one precinct (or whatever they are called in Iraq) voting 99% for something. After all, they voted 100% for Sadam. I fear this election is not going to solve anything and will just encourage the civil war that is already in place. Bush, of course, will no doubt claim a great success with democracy about to take over the entire Middle East.
Stand by and watch the Bush/Cheney administration implode. It couldn't happen to a better bunch of war criminals.
National injustice is the surest road to national downfall.
