Porter Goss, the plot thickens.

Just when the right thought they had another Kennedy to sink their teeth into, one more Bush appointee self destructs.

It was all sweetness and light at the resignation, with Bush saying nice things about Goss and acting like his stepping down was his own decision.

But it seems that Goss was given the old bum's rush and that Bush was glad to see the back of him.

You know there's trouble a'brewing when archconservative, former congressman Bob Barr's adding to the speculation.

"I think there's going to be more coming out," Barr said on CNN. "We don't know
the whole story." Invoking the bribery scandal involving former GOP congressman
Duke Cunningham, Barr continued: "It's starting to reach into the CIA. And that
could very well be something that is going to -- you know, like a sore that's
been festering. That could bust out sometime now. And maybe that could reach
into the top levels of the agency."

And could that sore be WatergateGate? Stay tuned, this is going to be a hoot and a half.

The president of a limousine company questioned in a congressional bribery
investigation has denied accusations that he or his company provided prostitutes
to convicted former congressman Randy "Duke" Cunningham or anyone else. The
company has turned over records to federal investigators and is cooperating with
the probe, its lawyers said.

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.
