Always a Party, Schadenfreude City!

a little bit of good news for you liberals/progressives/not-monkeyfuck-insane types out there: President Bush may have lied to Federal Investigators in the Valerie Plame Leak investigation. You see, the NY Daily News reported today that someone in the administration let it slip that in 2003, Bush was pissed off at Karl Rove when he admitted having participated in the leak. He wasn't pissed off that someone would leak the identity of a No Official Cover agent, endangering both the lives of American spies and the viability of US intelligence-gathering operations. He was pissed off that they had "done an amateur job," as in, that they got caught.

here's where it gets interesting: it has already been reported that Bush told federal investigators that Rove told him he hadn't been involved in the leak.

I know what you're thinking. "But...but...the President wouldn't...LIE under oath, would he?" Of course not, dear child. of course not. The President refused to testify under oath. he was just answering questions. But regardless, telling investigators one thing when the opposite is true sounds, to this country lawyer, like Obstruction of Justice. Then again, this administration has been consistently, openly contemptible of all three things Superman swore to protect: Truth, Justice, and the American Way.

hat tip to the Talent Show.
