Politics - AttorneyGate: Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch

Now, why d'you suppose Georgy-Porgy, the ever-willing foot-in-mouth Blabberer-in-Chief, is holding his - hmph! - peace in the matter of the Democratic Congress' newly issued subpoenas of Harriet Miers and Sara Taylor? Could it be nerves, as the NYT suggests?
Bush had said, "I will oppose any attempts to subpoena White House officials," and added that he was "absolutely" willing to fight over subpoenas in court.

"But when the subpoenas actually arrived on Wednesday, for Harriet E. Miers, the former White House counsel, and Sara Taylor, the former White House political director, Bush said nothing," Stolberg observes. "The current White House counsel, Fred F. Fielding -- who recently beefed up his staff by hiring additional lawyers to handle the growing demands for documents and testimony -- has yet to offer a response."

Stolberg continues, "Those sounds of silence suggest that the White House is grappling with a dilemma. If Bush reaches an accommodation with lawmakers on testimony from Miers and Taylor, Democrats will inevitably demand similar terms for Karl Rove, Bush's chief political adviser. The last thing Bush wants is Rove going up to Capitol Hill to submit to questions from Democrats."
Fear that Karlie will sing like a canary to save his own skin? Or is he losing it as everything around him turns to shit, like everything within him, and the fetid stench of his own inner darkness reduces his world to a meaningless hell?

What am I thinking? Commander Codpiece would never admit to being wrong. “I must tell you, I'm sleeping a lot better than people would assume,” he famously said recently. Of course he is. He's a psychopath. He doesn't give a fuck about the wounded, maimed, and killed, civilian or military, American or Iraqi. Punk.
