Hastert and Frist Concerned about Drippy Faucet While Toilet Overflows

Let's say that your toilet has been overflowing for three years. All kinds of remarkably smelly things are regularly strewn across your bathroom floor. It keeps happening. You won't stop it. It's causing permanent damage to your bathroom fixtures. And not only is it pissing off your family, but the stench is begining to waft over to the neighbors' homes, and they are pissed too.

One evening, after an especially challenging toilet overflow clean-up job, you realize that the sink is dripping. You shout at your wife to call a plumber for the drippy faucet, but insist that the plumber do nothing about the commode that's been overflowing. For three years now.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert
are circulating a letter calling for a congressional leak investigation
into the disclosure of secret U.S. interrogation centers abroad.


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Republican leaders should
also investigate possible manipulation of prewar intelligence on
Iraq and the disclosure of covert CIA officer Valerie Plame's

"If Speaker Hastert and Majority Leader Frist are finally ready to
join Democrats' demands for an investigation of possible abuses of
classified information, they must direct the House and Senate
Intelligence Committees to investigate all aspects of that issue,"
said Pelosi.

Yes, it seems that our government is run by a bevy of rotten angry dysfunctional incompetent halfwits.

    or perhaps after a little break, you find the blog more refreshing than tedious. I know I do.

    And Frist finds out it was a fellow Repug who leaked the CIA prison story. He must be puking on the Senate floor. Great post. Love the angle you took.
