Josh Marshall reminds me of what was one of the featured stories on Rachel Maddow's Air America show this morning, namely, that "Revoltin'" John Bolton "forgot" that he'd been interviewed by the State Department Inspector General in connection with their inquiry as to how the Iraq-Niger yellowcake story managed to find its way into the State of the Union address. This is by way of explanation of why Bolton told the Senate, in connection with his confirmation hearings on his now dead appointment as U.N. Ambassador (well, dead in the Senate, though I'm hearing rumors that Bush will be giving him the expected recess appointment, possibly as early as next week), that he'd never given testimony or statements in connection with any investigations during his tenure at the State Department.
I don't know about any of the rest of you, but this is reminding me of a classic Steve Martin schtick from one of his albums. In that monologue, Martin states that he'd decided that he was never going to file an income tax return again, but that he had no fear of going to jail for it, because he'd thought of a perfect, iron-clad excuse that would get him off if the IRS ever caught up with him and inquired as to why he hadn't filed tax returns.
Iiiiiiiiii..... forgot!Yep. Works for me.....
