Scandals Overview

Time After Time...! These scandals are just about getting laughable.   I found this quote below to be very telling about the Republicans as to their attitude and their standard operating procedure.   Even tho this comes at the end of a piece about the latest Katrina findings, DarkSyde's playbook framework fits just about all their scandals.

I had changed the description of my blog quite a while before Katrina (somewhere post Chiavo - PlameGate).   After Katrina I was forced to add Incompetence to it for it to really be accurate.

Republicans Blister White House
By DarkSyde
Wed Feb 15, 2006

Feel safer yet? There are so many instances of what can only be interpreted as paranoid behavior, incompetence, misinformation, scandals in various states of legal and journalistic illumination, or blatant lying, now plaguing this White House, that just trying to keep up with them all is bewildering. But from Loose-lips Libby to Heckuva-job Brownie to Dead-eye Dick, perhaps a useful unifying framework to keep it all sorted out is the apparent Bush and Company gub'mint playbook:
•   Step 1: Screw-up
•   Step 2: Evade, spin, and Cover-up
•   Step 3: When it's too late Show-up
•   Step 4: Quietly Lawyer-up

•   Step 5: Finally, promise to cooperate and then Clam-up
Maybe the powers that be lost the next page out of the playbook, or they would know Step 5 is traditionally followed by Step 6 in which voters demonstrate at the polls that they're fed-up. Or Step 6a; after which the guilty and the complicit are locked-up.

30,000 weblogs. One Day. One Voice.
When the list reaches 30,000, a date and a word will be listed on the page. On that date, every weblog on the list agrees to make a single post with the word as the title. The content of the post should be about what you want for the world, whatever that may be. The purpose is not to make a particular political statement, but simply to make a noise. If 30,000 weblogs all post the same unusual word, it WILL be heard.
