Giant Mansions: Edwards America - 1 The other America - 0

John Edwards recently moved into the largest home in Orange County North Carolina. It's 28,200 sq feet and sits on a 102 acre lot.

The Parrot was on hand for the house warming party and had a chance to speak with Mr. Edwards about his new abode.

P: This is a beautiful home as was your last one what prompted the move?
E: As you know I'll be running for president in 08 and there's nothing to make one look more presidential than chopping wood at a ranch. In fact, Parrot, please refer to this as my ranch from now on.
P: Ok sir, the four story tower is a unique touch.
E: Yeah, Cheney's secret shadow government will still be running the country after we win so he requested we build a shooting tower for when he comes to visit. He plans on using it to shoot insurgents, enemy combatants and lawyers. I have to admit the last one scares me a bit, but as Bush said he's a half glass full kind of guy so I don't anticipate any problems. Oh yeah, we're also considering putting an oil well in back for Cheney to play in.
P: That's wonderful and all, but can you show me where you keep the scotch?
E: Sure, I'll have one of my servants from the other America fix a couple.
P: Superb, I love living in this America, it's so much more fun than the other one.
E: Yeah I know, people caught up in the poor America are fucken suckers. The beauty is since they're so screwed all I have to do is act like I'll provide impossible stuff to get their vote. For instance, affordable health care by subsidizing purchases with government funds. All the while making them more and more dependant on my government. (evil laugh insues)

It went on from there with the Parrot and Mr. Edwards getting hammered on scotch while they were waited on by the other America.

No Evidence of Libby as a Scapgoat

U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton doesn't see evidence of Libby being used a scapegoat for the Bush/Cheney administration. In a 2003 press conference then White House spokesman Scott McClellan stated the White House believed Libby had nothing to do with the leak. The judge's reasoning is that if they wanted to use him as a scapegoat they wouldn't have exonerated him in 2003.

Wow, Cheney has a lot of stuff happen around him that he apparently has nothing to do with.

Exhibit A: shoots a guy in the face - not his fault
Exhibit B: secret energy meetings - Exxon sets record profits
Exhibit C: Abu Graib - a couple of low level solderies acted alone
Exhibit D: CIA agent outted by his office - Libby did it alone
Exhibit E: War profits go to his ex-company - coincidence

Does this guy do anything on purpose? Things just seem to work out for him without his interference.

The Parrot cut to the chase when he caught up to the judge.

P: Judge Walton do you feel Libby acted alone?
J: Yes, I believe it's much more likely that Libby decided on his own when and how revenge would be taken on Ambassador Wilson for calling out Bush's statements on Niger and uranium. Libby was out of orders from Cheney so he decided to make some work for himself. Cheney isn't really a hands on type of leader, just ask President Bush, he generally lets his employees enjoy incredible freedom. You see unlike our enemies Cheney loves freedom so he spreads it to places like Iraq and his office. It just makes sense.

The Parrot was stunned by this response and quickly grabbed a scotch to help digest the bullshit.
