I want to welcome everyone to S-Q blog, since it seems to be chosen as the natural successor to “From the Desk of Patrick J. Fitzgerald.” While we all will miss it, it’s understandable that he would need a break from the daily maintenance. So hopefully the PJF owner will join us, on a more flexible time schedule.
I especially want to thank S-Q for stepping into that breach. I remember when she was new to blogging, asking questions, and now has put up a terrific site, taken charge and we will barely miss a beat. After all, Libby’s indictment is not an end to the travesty and mockery this Administration has made of democracy and moral values.
Since the indictment we’ve had the Walter Reed scandal, the firing of Justice Dept lawyers ostensibly for not chasing down Democrats and thereby muddying the waters for Republicans to continue their shenanigans. Then a report that the FBI misused their powers. Alberto Gonzales is on the hot seat. If ever someone looked and sounded stupid, he’s it. Almost a deer in headlight expression. Bush’s lap dog wondering what went wrong.
You forgot to read the Constitution, that’s what went wrong.
And now Halliburton, after stealing the taxpayers blind, is moving to Dubai. So much easier to skim off the top from a more sympatico country. With their oil profits building their kingdom, are they poised for global takeover?
Just when I thought it was getting better. I want to be optimistic and say it is. Because while it was going on before, now it’s headline news and people are paying attention. With 24/7 news sources when will people learn that whatever you do in secret today will be blasted into sunshine tomorrow.
This administration needs to learn a basic lessen our mothers taught us: Don’t do anything you don’t want to see on the front page of the New York Times. (And how ironic, that’s exactly where their undoing is happening.)
And a heaping thanks to all the bloggers that keep the light shining in all those dirty dark corners. Here’s a challenge: Every day, every one of us should do something positive for our country. Write a letter, volunteer, read an article, stay informed. We are our own best hope.
I want to work toward a really positive 2008 election, electing someone we can be proud of.
