8 years is a long time (to go without justice)

'Fixing a hole in the ocean..'
- The Beatles, 'Glass Onion'

A few days ago, super-genius Republican strategist Karly Rove refused to testify before congress after being subpoenaed (and not for the first time, I'm guessing). However, ever generous, Mr. Rove did offer to testify privately, as long as he wasn't under oath and no transcript of his fictional testimony was kept. In other words, he was willing to lie, just so long as there was no one there to record his lies and use those lies against him someday in a court of law.

I've been thinking about this a lot and Congress should just agree to Mr. Rove's terms. He is A Genius, after all, and...I know! Congress and Mr. Rove could make a little game out of it. Everyone could wear paper hats and imaginary tea could be served -- oh, and they could invite the Queen! I remember from childhood how the Queen likes to come to these things.

That would be keen.

Song for the day: Glass Onion, the Beatles song in which John Lennon tweaked the Beatles fans and Beatles mythology, and crafted some new mythology while he was at it. I also like how the drums on this song sound crisp and muffled at once. There's something kind of cool about that.

NOTE: We've reached song #250 on my list of 500 songs that don't suck. Can you say milestone?

Congrats on 250!

You are half-way there, so it's tome to start tinking... 'then what?'

As for Mr. Rove and lying... he's a politician, isn't he? I thought blatant lying was part of the job description.

Yes, the way he wants to 'testify' is all have-cake-and-eat-it-too, but I think the American people should just use this as a reason to overhaul their entire democratic system. Then we Canadians could use your overhaul as a areason/justification to overhaul our own government.

I don't know how many lives they thik they get in this game, but I'm sure thier overdue for a GAME OVER.

Thanks, BC. And, yes, they are long overdue for a game over.

The world has more than earned a break from that unsavory bunch.
