Liar Liar

It's hard to keep track of all the Republican wrongdoing, but it seems two of them have just been caught lying.

First, Frist. According to the Associated Press, documents show that despite his claims to have placed all of his HCA stock in a blind trust, Frist has made tens of thousands of dollars on other HCA stock held outside the trust. This is looking worse and worse for him.

Second, Scooter. As reported in the National Journal, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff, failed to disclose a crucial 2003 meeting with reporter Judith Miller, in which they discussed Valerie Plame, in either of the investigations led by the FBI and Patrick FitzGerald. Since that's exactly what both investigations were looking for, this looks like obstruction of justice and it seems really likely that our boy Scooter's about to get indicted.

I'm so glad the Republicans have restored honor and integrity to our government. At this point, the only question is: Who's next?

It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't run as being the ones who were trustworthy and morally upstanding, and that wouldn't be so bad if people would look at the shit they do and stop believing them.
