Prying THE SCOOT OFF THE HOOK

I almost have tears in my eyes from listening to MSNBC’s Keith Obermann spitting words at the TV screen about the way Prince Bumpkin – er… President Bush – “pardoned” his friend Mr. Scooter Libby.

You may not be familiar with the story of Mr. Scoot, but it’s a tale worth hearing, ‘cause it’s really about you and the fair land we live in. The land that just might come back and bite you in the tush (yes, even you, fair reader), if we don’t all pay attention to who’s trying to ruin – er, run us.

Ya see, it’s pretty obvious that Princy Bushhead – er… President Bush – said to ol’ Scoot, “Scoot,” he said, “If’n you go and lie to the law about the crime Dick the Chain and I committed, well, we’ll see you don’t ever go to prison for it.”

And that’s exactly what Primpo Bushman did – he took the sacred U.S. Presidential Pardon and scraped it thru the mud and pardoned ol’ Scoot for lying his head off in front of a big ol’ grand jury.

And here’s what Keith O. said that almost made me cry:

Mr. Bush, you have “ceased to be the president of the U.S.”

We have a winner in the worst-president-in-history contest.”

If Mr. Bush and Cheney were true patriots, they’d resign.”

Even Richard Nixon knew when to resign.”

Bush and Cheney are two men who are now perilous to our democracy.”

"It's July 4," said Keith. "We already decided in this nation we would not abide leaders who made up their own rules."

Finally someone on the TV screen (the mainstream srcreen no less) seeing what I’ve been seeing for the past seven years!

For small favors, Great Mother, thank you, thank you!

Keith Olberman definitely knows how to tell the truth.

Honest politician is an oxymoron.
