Senator Larry Has His Own Private Idaho? His Own Private Idaho Ho'? Ho ho ho.

First it was poopy-filled diaper Republican fetishist Senator Vitter.

Now it's anti-gay marriage activist, fake-married, closet homosexual homophobe Republican Senator Larry Craig of Idaho getting caught with his pants down, too.

Yes, no doubt, Senator Larry Craig, like Abu Gonzo Gonzalez, is just a good man whose name is been smeared by . . . .smeared with. . . unwarranted . . . . (long pause from beleaguered Preznit?) . . . mud?

Or whatever.

Senator "Larry" Craig's name is joining the long long list of Republican adulterers, pedophiles, wife-beaters, public adulterers, cancer-stricken wife-abandoners, fake heterosexuals who are loudly anti-gay and seek public sex, lying "family values" guys who indulge themselves in pay as you go sex with male prostitutes and female prostitutes, sometimes paying to be made to be forced to be sexual in poop-filled diapers (my personal GOPervert party favorite).

I think they're all "biblical" Christians, too.

O my God.

Matt Cooper: Karl Rove DID Leak Plame's Identity

Excellent coverage over at Crooks & Liars, here.
Below is a C & L transcript of David Gregory interviewing Matt Cooper earlier today.

David Gregory: Matt Cooper, let’s pick up on an aspect of the interview with, with Karl Rove having to do with the leak case, the CIA leak case, that you were part of as well.

And something’s that’s very interesting, he, he went out of his way to say, “I would not have been a confirming source on this kind of information” and taking issue with, with Novak’s testimony in his column that he knew who Valerie Plame was.

He said he would never confirm that information. That’s different from your experience with him.

Matt Cooper: Yeah, I, I think he was dissembling, to put it charitably.

Look, Karl Rove told me about Valerie Plame’s identity on July 11th, 2003. I called him because Ambassador Wilson was in the news that week.

I didn’t know Ambassador Wilson even had a wife until I talked to Karl Rove and he said that she worked at the agency and she worked on WMD.

I mean, to imply that he didn’t know about it or that this was all the leak…

David Gregory: Or that he had heard it from somebody else . . .

Matt Cooper: . . . . by someone else, or he heard it as some rumor out in the hallway is, is nonsense.

David Gregory: But he makes no apologies to Valerie Plame.

Matt Cooper: Karl Rove never apologizes. That’s not what he does.

A little consciousness of guilt there from closet cupcake Rove.

Hm. Interesting.

Here's emptywheel via firedoglake pointing out another of Rove's blatant, self-serving lies on TV today, enabled (as ever) by our useless masochistic media whore media.

On a brighter not, here's a story at WaPo about Rove's use of government funds for partisan political purposes. Bet someone will be spending some time on the Naughty Seat.

But I wonder about that careful dance Rove did about Plame, and the outright lie he told. Does this mean that Bubble Boy actually was made to fire Miss Piggy?

Fall of Turd Reich As Karl Rove Cuts & Runs

Turdblossom Karl Rove says he's leaving the White House because he wants to spend more time with his family, coming home from work early every day and playing gentle games lying on the floor with his 18-year-old adult son. And his second wife.

So sweet, really.

He wants to spend more time playing with his son, who won't be at even be at home to play with -- because the 18-year-old adult son's going away to college. (Perhaps changing his last name?) Not the second wife, though.


No time to think up a less feeble excuse? Ouch.

One wonders why, having weathered many a storm, Turdblossom's finally thrown in the towel.

Whatever could have dislodged him?

Will it be a big shiny new fresh steaming turd that someone just plopped into the Bush WH punchbowl?

A turd that really makes waves.

Big ones. Bad stinky ones.

A turd so big, it says:

Sadists for Christ

"Suffer the little children to come unto me?"


Let's let the little children who come unto me suffer.

Yes, let's tie children to our motor vehicles with ropes and drag them in the dirt on their stomachs in Jesus' name to show our little children the wonder of His love.

You think I'm joking? Sadly, no.

These are the godly (sic) works of "Love Demonstrated Ministries."

I kid you not.

Mr. No Blood for Hubris and I have been vacationing happily on sunny global-warmingly humid Cape Cod.

One spent a particularly lovely evening in cyber-reality dancing at Jesus' General's party at Cafe Wellstone last night. (One was the one in a lent lavender gown with non-matching but satisfyingly sparkly stilettos).

Returning to cold reality this morning, one read the front page of the Cape Cod Times, that odd very Republican paper, Dow-owned, and now, of course, Murdoch-owned.

That front-page article is called "Peeks and Valleys."

It features three blue Barbie-doll-boobed pictures (an eye-catching 12-column-inches), and manages to mention the name HILLARY CLINTON, and the word CLEAVAGE in its entire two inches of text.

Raise your hands if you think the appearance of a FRONT PAGE, illustrated, 14-column-inch article mentioning HILLARY CLINTON, and CLEAVAGE is the work of just some little local copy editor gone berserk.

(Here's a link, but the online version doesn't do justice to the story's actual presentation, lacking the striking Barbie-doll boob blueprints showing various degrees of cleavage styles, the middle one being marked as "potential U.S. prez" and the rightmost one being marked "va-va-voom." )

Sex objects, anyone?

It's more Hillary-bashing. (And remember, one is well to the left of the Senator).

And it's unabashedly misogynist to boot.

And it's Rupert at work.

One is almost ready to start writing about Rupert's own bag of nuts.

In fact, one just did. (Ee-ew.)
