DoJ is D.O.A.

Shoephone of Evergreen Politics is the speed reader extraordinaire who after poring over 1000 pages from the Department of Just-us docu-dump, gleans the really good stuff in a way I can actually read. I tried to read some of the emails out of the DoJ's junk mail but could trudge through very little. As has been reported in the MSM, much of the material submitted are repeats of the same email, over and over, 3 and 4 times. What they didn't repeat, they just redacted. As Shoephone says, "Distract, junk up, obfuscate, confuse. Rinse, repeat." Get over to E.P. and read, "The DOJ 'Document Dump' -- Fear and Loathing in D.C."

Bush will let Rove, Miers, et al, talk to Congress, but only under the Cone of Silence.

"The cone of silence" wasn't that a plot device in the movie Twister? They're going down.

LOL! Echoes in the Cone of Silence.

"...In 'Dear Diary,' Max demands that they light the Magna Lamp to read small details in a document. The Chief hesitates, Max hold his ground. The light goes on , so bright that no one can see anything, and so hot, it incinerates the paper. The Chief could have left the Magna lamp off; Max gave him the choice -- it, or the Cone of Silence. The Chief will agree to any number of horrors to avoid the Cone of Silence. Max can't understand the Chief's resistance. Max has a short memory. He never remebers that the Cone never works."
