All Ways Are My Way

Remember that little visit the Texas Tyrant had last month with the President of Nigeria? Well, in addition to everything else we noted about President Olusegun Obasanjo, it appears he has the same idea of justice as prevails at places like Gitmo, Bagram, and Abu Ghraib. No wonder those two got along so well.

Meanwhile, we find that Plamegate is not, after all, about the destruction of a woman's career and the jeopardization of national security. It's merely a matter of reclassification: as Lewis Carroll would remind us, the Queen can move those croquet hoops about as she deems fit, and no one has a right to question or criticize.

After all, George Washington never admitted to any wrongdoing when he cut down that cherry tree. The Scott McLellan history book recounts the incident as follows: George's words then were, "yep, I cut down that damned tree—it was useless! It's dead, I killed it, and if you want to politicize that, why you just go ahead and make a donkey's ass out of yourself, Dad."
