If Berg was a BFEE setup, this is why
Forget the torture scandal. This is worse.

Yesterday, the Senate (story at http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/671157.... ) approved a $170 billion (over 10 years) business tax cut bill.

Included in the legislation were some of Bush's highest priorities: elimination of overtime pay and billions in tax breaks for the oil and gas industries.

We have gone from a nation that sings about patriotically paying your taxes to fund a necessary war, to a nation that launches illegal wars then cuts the taxes to pay for them.

Bush is so gone in November.

1. No - I think the torture scandal was sufficient
Like they needed another distraction...

2. They need constant distractions
Their scandals wear out fairly quickly. Abu Ghraif would burn out in a month or so--look at Valerie Plame's scandal. None of us are talking about that now, right?

So what they need to do is to launch a new scandal about once every two weeks or so to keep us off-guard; by doing so they can avoid our looking at the essential evil that undergirds the Bush Crime Cartel.
