4. First Foley blamed alcohol for his child predation...
and now Reynolds blames the flu for unwillingness to answer tough questions. What next the President blames his insanity for Iraq? (Well that might actually make sense.)

13. Chicken Hawk flu... Most likely a sexually transmitted disease.
It's been going around in D.C. I think Foley was a carrier...

Could've used a condom.

12. I didn't realize that covering up pedophiles and being a slimeball
gave flu like symptoms. I guess Reynolds would know though.

14. What happend Uncle Dick decided to silence him with some ANTHRAX?
What's the Difference Between Flu and Anthrax Symptoms?
Many illnesses begin with symptoms commonly referred to as "flu-like" symptoms. These include fever, lack of energy, and muscle aches. If you feel that you may have anthrax, see your doctor right away.


Why did the mysterious anthrax attacks come and go like a wraith?

For those in immediate proximity to the events, the September 11attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were frightening in the extreme, but they had not the slow accumulation of dread that the anthrax scare of October 2001 presented. Far more than any anomaly concerning 9/11 itself, the anthrax mystery is the undecoded Rosetta Stone of recent years.

The anthrax attacks were the most anomalous terrorist attacks in history: clever, successful, unpunished, causing five deaths and a billion dollars' damage. Yet never repeated. This alone makes them remarkable in the annals of criminal activity, but there is more--the intended victims (at least those with an official position) were warned in writing of their peril in sufficient detail that they could take steps to administer an antidote. Is this characteristic of terrorist attacks by "al Qaeda," or by any known Middle Eastern terrorist group?

Except for the ambiguous first attack (which killed a National Enquirer photo editor), all the deaths resulting from the anthrax plot were incidental--mail handlers and innocent recipients of mail which had been contaminated by proximity to the threat letters. Evidently the West Jefferson anthrax strain was more powerful and had greater accidental effects than the plotters had intended.

But what did the plotters intend, if they did not will the deaths of the addressees of their anthrax letters? It was pure coincidence, perhaps, that the anthrax scare was at its height, producing psychosomatic illness symptoms among members of Congress and staffers, just as the USA PATRIOT Act was wending its way through the legislative process. This measure, which originated among the same Justice Department lawyers who legally opined that torture was wholesome, was rammed through the Congress after enactment of the authorization of the use of force in Afghanistan. Why is this sequence significant?

The then-majority leader of the U.S. Senate, Tom Daschle, wrote a curious op-ed in the Washington Post four years after the events just described. <8>. In attempting to refute the administration's allegation that it had been granted plenary wiretap powers in the Afghanistan authorization, he stated that he and his Senatorial confreres explicitly rejected an administration proposal to authorize an effective state of war within the borders of the United States itself.

Given the administration's repeatedly demonstrated refusal to accept any limitation on its powers, it is logical that the rebuff on the war powers authorization was followed by the prompt submittal of the Justice Department's draft of the PATRIOT Act, containing many of the domestic authorities the Bush White House had sought in the use of force legislation. How doubly coincidental that two of the limited number of addressees of the threat letters should have been the offices of Daschle himself, and Sen. Patrick Leahy, then-chairman of the committee of jurisdiction over the PATRIOT Act.

Needless to say, the measure was passed by an even more comfortable margin than that enjoyed by the 1933 Enabling Law in the Reichstag. <9> Notwithstanding buyer's remorse exhibited by many members of Congress, and current efforts to amend its more onerous provisions, it appears we are saddled with the main burdens of its edicts in perpetuity.

How the government placed this perpetual burden on its citizens is bound up with the mysterious anthrax scare of October 2001, an outrage that, unlike 9/11, does not even merit an official explanation. No one has been charged.

15. Bet his lawyer told him he was sick today.
You know they're lawyered up behind the scenes. They've got to be concerned about criminal and/or civil charges.

He looked sick with fear.

20. The big GOPer Clam-Up is starting...
The more they spin, the more lies get out and the harder it's going to get to cover it all up. The pubs talking under oath will eat them alive and the more they talk now the more they hurt their case. Will they all tak the 5th?

They can't even defend themselves now...they have painted themselves into a tiny corner! This is soooo God Damned Funny, seeing them REALLY sweat at long last! And they all know what low lifed, self centered, rats the others in their party are!

And all the Hype on TV about how the GOPers won because of "MORALITY" in 2004, just makes it all soooo much more fun to watch!
