CBS-News on a Friggin' Roll

Was it a mirage, the lead story we witnessed tonight on the CBS Evening News? That El Presidente has retained an outside lawyer to represent him in the case of the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame. It was RIGHT THERE on my TV, but there's not a peep about it so far on the CBS website.

Though there is plenty of other stuff ... like the now-notorious Enron tapes the network broke last night, of company traders talking about the way they were f***king California (their term, not mine) by manipulating energy prices.

Or the new FBI investigation inside the Pentagon. Which "drunk" fool told alleged Iranian double-agent Ahmad Chalabi that the U.S. had cracked the Iranian code and was intercepting and reading all their secret communications, which Chalabi allegedly then told an Iranian agent in Baghdad, who then promptly wired the news to Tehran, using the same code that had just been cracked by the U.S. That cat got completely out of the bag. And some neo-con's butt has GOT to be in a tight crack over that!

Sometimes it's too much to take in at once, the crashing waves of news about this mendacious administration and all its deeds. Meanwhile, Michael Moore's award-winning "Fahrenheit 911," a documentary on that very subject, has gotten an American distributor and will hit theaters on June 25th.
