Drip, Drip, Drip.

Something's leaking.

And it appears to be Bush's lying mouth.

To Bush and his gang, the powers of the federal government are just something to be used to further their political agenda.

Here's what Bush said in 2003. "And if this helps stop leaks, this investigation in finding the truth, it'll not only hold someone to account who should not have leaked -- and this is a serious charge, by the way. We're talking about a criminal action. But also hopefully we'll help send a clear signal we expect other leaks to stop as well."

Probably knowing while he was making this statement that he authorized the leak. I say probably because, I mean, he's not exactly the brightest color in the crayon box.

For instance, Mr. Fitzgerald cites the express permission by the president to
disclose certain elements of a highly classified report about Iraq to a New York
Times reporter. While the president has broad latitude to declassify
information, the government's filing quotes Mr. Libby's grand-jury testimony as
saying such an authorization was "unique in his recollection."

On Friday, the
White House didn't challenge the assertion that Mr. Bush declassified
intelligence information to counter war critics. White House spokesman Scott
McClellan spent nearly an hour drawing a distinction between the leaking of
information judged to be "in the public interest" and the willful disclosure of
information that could endanger national security.

I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.
