15. And even they like the sound of their own voices.
This was predictable when the Republicans agreed to immunity.

Its insane.

51. She hasn't said much.....Pence up so that's a pass.
I'm hoping that those who question later will get something out of her. If not,the dems will have capitulated....again. Yep, Pence danced all around the question of hiring and firing of attornies but did not ask if it was illegal to fire based on political grounds.....did I understand correctly?

12. Oooooh....I've had it all to HERE.....EVERYBODY SING!
Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand
'Cause I'm just a girl, little 'ol me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights

Oh...I've had it up to here!

to do with the DOJ or USA firings. They cannot allow the TRUTH to come out or their party is finished. Little do they know it's finished already. They always try to make things appear better than they are. They're a bunch of CORRUPT assholes covering up CRIMES.

26. I'm afraid we are going to lose this one in totality. This is like a court case where we have a
poor case because of lack of evidence. The evidence has been withheld, the time clock is running out and the Repubs are taking advantage of both. They are looking better than we are. Rove will win this one.

34. Yeah, I was reading her biography too, and this part said it all
"For her part, Goodling's conservative ideals were such "that she once refused to go to a Justice Department baby shower because the mother was unwed."

That sums up these kind of people perfectly. Oh, and she's probably rabidly anti-abortion too (as if that needs to be said)

36. COVER-UP: Carol Lam took on the Tenet/Alvarado suit herself.
No mention of the timeline with Tenet Healthcare Fraud $$billions$$

Carol Lam took on the Tenet/Alvarado suit herself. Glossed, yet admitted that there was discussion of Lam working cases herself.

Cunningham 'the cover-up question' to avoid the Medicare fraud prosecutions ??
What about the "lobbyists, bribes, campaign contributions" matrix?

The Republican questioners are up to their ears in this.

90. That was one of her best parse-lies so far. She answered honestly by using
Edited on Wed May-23-07 12:05 PM by L. Coyote
the qualifier "particular faith system" which means just what? That they were not looking for Baptists from a certain parish, no doubt.

This is the beauty of a parse-lie.

The difference between a lie and a parse-lie. DEFINING Parse-lies.

If you just analyze clever attorney-speak, it simply and often says, "I'm working around an obvious lie I cannot tell under penalty of perjury, so I'll parse a string of bull crap together for you that will make you think I answered your question the way I would if I told the direct lie that would sound a lot like what this seems to say."

Definition: A parse-lie is a political plant that blooms all year long. It is not a lie, just a florid string of crap that makes one believe something not said. It's a clever construction that makes one believe the lie it displaces. At the same time, it end runs the actual lie by parsing truth to sound like the lie it averts. Parse-lie blossoms have a slight scent of bull crap.

109. I think she needs to be specifically reminded that if she lies, she loses her immunity!
So that she's CLEAR on what she's saying HAS to be the truth for her to not be subject to prosecution. Evidently at the start with her trying to invoke the 5th ammendment again, it would seem evident that she isn't always clear on the details, or wants to have them spelled out! Therfore she SHOULD have it spelled out, and go through her testimony and point out the conflicts today in her testimony (like her claiming not to have input on recommendations of attorneys and later acknowledging that she did).

Say to her that they won't accept Al Franken "weasel" answers to question and that she needs to be clear on what the truth is!

110. There were important differences she testified to today... especially AG and his testimony
She puts AG Gonzales 'in the room' and engaged fully in discussions about who to fire.

She contradicted Kyle Sampson's testimony and attempted to lessen the impact with self-serving statements like 'maybe he forgot'.

She definitely 'threw McNulty under the bus' to save her sorry behind.

She admitted she 'crossed the line' in using politics in making hiring decisions.

She admitted communication with Karl Rove's office, Scott Jennings and Harriett Miers.

There is quite a bit more, but now we have testimony under oath by various officials involved here, and somebody has lied under oath.

In the end, it is a battle for the documents which the White House is withholding.

Unless one of them comes back and changes their testimony, we have different stories regarding the facts of this situation.
