Only Libby? UPDATED

The New York Times is reporting that Karl Rove will not be indicted, but Lewis Libby will be indicted for making false statements to the Grand Jury. I guess we will all find out if this is true today when Fitzgerald holds a press conference. Assuming this report is true, is Libby a big enough fish to appease the rabid left? I mean, they were practically foaming at the mouth at the prospect of getting Rove.

Update: Well it looks like the initial reports were true. Mom, I know that I said I was going to watch my language on this website, but I don't know of any other way to put this.

Once again, the left and the media have made asses of themselves. Bob Burkett, Cindy Sheehan, Joe Wilson. Throw these people a bone and they swarm like a bunch of wolves. I am embarrassed for them . I can't imagine how they feel right now. They had put all of their hopes and dreams into the possibility of bringing down Karl Rove and all they get are some indictments on Lewis Libby for covering up a crime that was never even committed. It's like looking in your Halloween sack and finding that yukky taffy candy that comes in that orange and black wrapping. No Hersheys, no Kit Kat, no Reeses, no Milky Way, none of the good stuff, just cheap crap.

Surprise! Russians and French Bribed By Saddam

An independent investigation of the United Nations' $64 billion oil-for-food program reported Thursday that Russia and France received favored treatment from the government of Saddam Hussein as part of a system that ultimately led to the emergence of an elite circle of political beneficiaries and fixers who made company connections and reaped the benefits.

No kidding. That's two members of the UN Security council accepting bribes from the enemy. So these are the "allies" that John Kerry kept saying we should honor. Last fall during the debates, I sat there and screamed at the TV, begging George Bush to tell the whole country the truth about these so-called allies that Kerry kept blabbering about. Of course he didn't and Kerry knew that he wouldn't.

I really cannot put into words how much I despise the United Nations. If it were up to me, we would pull out of the UN and make them relocate to Paris. Of course, if you took American money out of the UN, it probably wouldn't last a year. I love the United States of America and I love our sovereignty. I can not believe that anybody in this country cares what some guy from Ghana thinks about our foreign policy. The UN serves no purpose but to weaken the power of the United States, to make their bureaucrats rich, and to rape little girls. That's it.

Volcker Report Due

On the subject of corruption, the UN Oil For Food Report is due. Hopefully, at least someone still remembers Oil For Food and how corrupt the UN was revealed to be. It is a shame that nobody in the media seems to care about an international organization that steals money intended for food and medicine and uses that money to line the pockets of lifetime bureaucrats. It is a shame that the world isn't anymore outraged over the fact that those employed by this same organization routinely have raped little girls in places like the Congo.

No Indictments Today

Another day will pass with no announcements in the CIA leak case. The Grand Jury's term ends tomorrow. Could it be that there will be no announcements then either? What if there are no indictments at all? What would the Democrats do then? Would they actually have to formulate some ideas?

Miers Does The Right Thing,

Helps The "Coolest and Bestest" President Ever Save Face
Phew! That was close.

Thankfully, Harriet Miers did her President a favor today and withdrew her nomination. She did the admirable thing, in my opinion. By all accounts, this is a victory for the conservative movement.
