The daily scandal report

Let's face it, folks. Government has always had undertones of corruption but never before has it become so painfully obvious that so many laws have been broken by the politicians someone elected. Never before has the Constitution been used as a document to wipe the president's ass with.

First off, the Bush administration is now facing charges that they ran a campaign to downplay and discredit research by scientists on global warming. Not just one scientist or ten but literally dozens of expert scientists with no political or monetary motivation to alter their own data. The alterations were done by the president's underlings.

Secondly, the scandal surrounding the dismissal of 8 U.S. attorneys. Even with e-mails proving that the dismissals were premeditated, the powers that be claim ignorance. I won't claim to know everything about this injustice by our government but Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still being supported by Bush is most likely on his way out the door. There is even a reported list being circulated with potential Attorney General replacement candidates who would likely bow before the president's all-knowing power.

Finally, the president still claims that a "victory" in Iraq is possible. This comes on the heals of an in-depth Rolling Stone report on how much worse the Iraq war can (and maybe will) get. Of course many will discredit the story as being from a pinko commie liberal rag but the panel of experts they assembled includes big hitters such as former counterrorism czar Richard Clarke and retired General Tony McPeak who served as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Persian Gulf conflict in the early 90s. Their overall opinion is grim at best and downright depressing at times but necessary to read.

And that's your daily scandal report for Tuesday, March 20, 2007.

This is what I am talking about. Too many people in politics feel that they can do as they please. Just to get thier point, view, or agenda. Shameful
