Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

02/12/2005: More Gonzales Plame Out

In this US news wire release a bit ago (been saving it…but, better late than neveragain…), it reports about the whistle blowers event held last January 26th, 2005 where:

"An unprecedented group of national security whistleblowers and family members of 9/11 victims will gather on Wednesday, Jan. 26, to demand that the government halt its detrimental practice of silencing employees who expose national security blunders.
The event (included) several 9/11 family member advocacy groups and public interest organizations file a friend-of-the-court brief in support of Sibel Edmonds' case against the government.
Edmonds, a former Middle Eastern language specialist hired by the FBI shortly after 9/11, was fired in 2002 after repeatedly reporting serious security breaches and misconduct in the agency's translation program. She challenged her retaliatory dismissal by filing suit in federal court. Last July, the district court dismissed her case when Attorney General John Ashcroft invoked the so-called state secrets privilege. The ACLU is representing Edmonds in the appeal."

Michael Froomkin (Law Professor & blogger) had this item on his web-blog about Gonzales' hand in obstruction in the Plame investigation. Froomkin wrote:
Do not forget that Gonzales — nominated to be the nation’s top cop — is the guy who when the Plame investigation was bearing down on the White House ensured that the guilty parties had all the time they could want to shred everything incriminating.""

Despite the hoopla over his being the first Hispanic nominee for this "exalted" position...and all the "ethnic pride" on the part of Hispanics nationally...are the serious LEGAL and MORAL issues about this Presidential choice.

I am still *Gasping* at the audacity to produce such a nominee as if no other qualified candidate existed...but now is their evil cabal completed, that circle of Bushie insiders closing, the forces of Darkness arrayed against us...and the noose is tightening...on us poor Americans. Bleh!

And when, Oh, when are they going to get to the weezle, Robert Novak, for his despicable part in all of this??? I still say Safire (now formerly of the NY Times) should have co-opted Bob into a double retirement ceremony...then could we all have breathed a *SIGH* of relief.
