You were driving home in the dark on one glass-slippered heel, window sliced open and bathing in the snowliquor of the night air. We heard you singing, and couldn't bear to wake you.

Eyes the color of candy, lies to cover the handicap.

"I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors."
— George H. W. Bush, 1999

"I think if the allegation is true, to reveal the identity of an undercover CIA operative — it's abhorrent, and it should be a crime, and it is a crime."
— Former Republican National Committee Chair Ed Gillespie, 2003

And if the only way to nail Capone is for tax evasion, then go for it. I'm sorry for what happened to Valerie Plame, and the indictment is well-deserved, but treason pales in comparison to the real crime here.

It's a rhetorical question for anyone who's been paying attention, of course. The ends justify the means for this administration, even when the means are tens of thousands of corpses (if you bother to count all those civilians, that is).

One of my dads recently expressed the opinion that what with Scooter Libby, Harriet Miers and Hurricane Katrina, "the pendulum is starting to swing in the other direction". I'd like to believe that. But Christ on a crooked crutch, folks -- if the malignancy of the Bush administration wasn't obvious enough a year ago, why should these new developments make a difference?
