Laura Bush

Hurricane Ka…Uh…Whatever

Laura Bush misplaces a “t” in this clip that makes you wonder if she gets her news from bubble gum wrappers. Not to beat up on the first lady, but seriously, if you forget what one of the most talked-about events of the last two years is called, don’t just make something up.

Leahy Snaps at White House Stonewaller

Bush lackey Scott Jennings gives Sen. Pat Leahy the broken-record treatment, which has become so familiar. Witness Leahy’s frustration break as Jennings refuses even to describe his duties: “Let’s not be too contemptuous of this committee. ... You work at the White House. You’re paid for by taxpayers.

North Dakota Congressman Calls Bush a ‘Clown’

Here’s a snippet that shows what it must be like for your average congressperson heading for work these days:  Watch as North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy is descended upon by two women vigorously demanding that President Bush be impeached, which spurs a clearly irked Pomeroy to fume that, “I can’t stand this president ...

Cheney’s Memory Issues

Taking a page from the Ronald Reagan Guide to Dodging Sticky Political Issues, Vice President Dick Cheney told Larry King that he didn’t recall if he was the one who asked Alberto Gonzales to pressure John Ashcroft to sign off on a wiretapping program as Ashcroft lay in a hospital bed in 2004.

Gonzales’ Stone Wall

Although Attorney General Alberto Gonzales was characteristically dodgy during last week’s questioning by the Senate Judiciary Committee about just who had dispatched him in March 2004 to persuade an ailing John Ashcroft to approve an illegal wiretapping program, The New York Times leaves little mystery that it was Vice President Dick Cheney.
