And to add to your day's political 'what the fuck????', I offer:

this link to a CNN article, about a corpse discovered in England, which may have been the body of one Dr. David Kelly, who the government claims was the source of the original report on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. He wrote report A, then, sayeth the UK's government, the BBC 'sexed up' the report into Proof of Weapons of Mass Destruction B. Interesting: we're not even ADMITTING we were insisting this was REALLY TRUE just YESTERDAY, are we, Mr. Blair?

...So let's get this straight. No WMD as yet, despite the efforts of huge numbers of people. No attempted uranium purchase, despite the insistence of Tony Blair's government. No Saddam Hussein, despite the efforts of THOUSANDS. No Osama bin Laden, despite bombing Afghanistan into the stone age. There are over 3000 dead Americans whose murder remains unavenged, despite that being the claimed aim of US military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. And the person who supposedly wrote the report that the BBC then 'sexed up' to justify war (to quote CNN) is now apparently deceased. I bet that all wrongdoing will turn out to have been authored by him, now. Just watch.

So... what really is going on here?

I'm thinking one instance of adultery is a lot less scandalous or criminal than thousands of instances of murder, myself. Mr. Bush? Read your fucking bible, you supposedly follow the damn thing. And please continue to not pay attention to McCarthy: he eventually fell from power because his allegations of associations and links between communists were demonstrated to be naught but a lot of rhetoric. Please keep not paying attention to that.

Goddamn, I hope our elections next year actually elect someone this time.
