I NEED A TRANSCRIPT

Of the Goodling testimony yesterday, and I can not find one anywhere.

HELLLLP!

Nevermind, I finally found one here, and I am ecstatic because I can finally bring to you my ABSOLUTELY favorite portion of the testimony yesterday:

SANCHEZ:OK.Thank you.

Before you joined the Executive Office for the U.S. Attorneys in the spring of 2005, did you have any experience in making personnel decisions involving the hiring or the firing of employees?

GOODLING:Yes.In — putting aside — putting aside college, where I was student body president, we actually did hire people to work on various organizations…

SANCHEZ:In a professional capacity, outside of college.

GOODLING:At the Republican National Committee, I was the deputy director there of research and strategic planning and we had…

SANCHEZ:You did hiring and firing there?

GOODLING:I did some in the research department that I….

There you have it. Her experiences that qualified her for that position were being student body president (Nixon and Rove afficionados might love the college tie in, reminiscent of the College Republican shenanigans from the 70’s), working as a party hack for the RNC, and loving the baby Jesus.

These guys put the Bush in bush league.

Sanchez goes on to ask:

SANCHEZ:OK.How did you get your position at the EOUSA?

How, indeed?

    Well, at least she never had sex with a jackalope, like Clinton did!

    Heh, indeed. I saw a clip of that on Countdown last night, it was great. Explain to me again why an RNC hack who did oppo research was in charge of hiring and firing people at the Justice Department?

    Oh, right… it’s the Bush administration, where Republican party politics is the only consideration ever taken into account… Nevermind.

    Well, look at the bright side. They put the cream of their crop, their most talented in the DOJ.

    Now if her biggest accomplishment before being hired was policing the widespread practice of plastic surgery on horse’s asses by evildoers, now that would be worth a FEMA directorship at least.

    And these are the people that some of you think are winning the contest in the Iraq funding legislative struggle?

    They couldn’t navigate their way out of a paper bag if you cut the bottom off the bag and put food at both ends.

    I totally agree. A minor quibble, though:

    These guys put the Bush in Busch league.

    that’s pretty sad. but at least they chose qualified people, and not College Republican footsoldiers, for important stuff… like the Iraq reconstruction !

    right?

    Thing is, I don’t think that last question will ever really get answered. You can bring in a Kyle Sampson who’ll say “it wasn’t me…musta been McNulty”, bring in McNulty the next week who’ll say “it wasn’t me…musta been Gonzales” (or if Bunk was with him, it’d be “Fuck, fuck. Fuck? Fuckin’ fuck! Motherfucker! Fuck fuck fuck.”), bring in Gonzales, who’ll say “wasn’t me, musta been McNulty”.
    Wash, rinse, repeat. I’d rather see the 4 of them sitting at a table together taking these questions, so they can’t pull the runaround.

    Goodling is a hottie. I’m betting that with all that lying she’s been doing lately, she’s got some pretty strong mouth muscles.

    or some long strings coming out her ass, tied to AbuGonzo’s greasy little fingers.

    And every once in a while, John, it’s worthwhile to remind you that you helped put them in office.

    Just so you never do it again.

    HOW TO BE A DESPOT IN THREE EASY STEPS
    by Karl Rove

    Rule #1:
    Surround yourself with young, unqualified, inexperienced little foot soldiers who will do anything you ask without question or hesitation

    Rule #2:
    Fire all those who won’t.

    Rule #3:
    Convince everyone you’re an idiot, so they won’t be as suspicious or try to stop you.

    This is what’s called a big FU to the people of this country.

    yes. it’s a well-know truth that if your heart’s in the right place, all else will follow. the sad part is that some people actually believe that.

    bring in a Kyle Sampson who’ll say “it wasn’t me…musta been McNulty”, bring in McNulty the next week who’ll say “it wasn’t me…musta been Gonzales” (or if Bunk was with him, it’d be “Fuck, fuck. Fuck? Fuckin’ fuck! Motherfucker! Fuck fuck fuck.”)

    nice Wire reference…to one of my season 1 favorite episodes.

    That’s pretty frightening stuff…it’s amazing just how easy it was for that unhinged asshole to finnagle his way into the #2 position…right in line behind clueless George…one moment Dick is “vetting” Vice-Presidential aspirants…but, geez…he just couldn’t find a SINGLE ONE that was good enough…and I’m sure he dutifully reported this to Dubyah and then flashes his best boyish smile at Dubyah…

    “You can give me a nick-name, if’n you wanna, George (wink-wink)”…

    “Hey, Dick…I just had this great idea…what if YOU took the VP spot…?? You know all about that ‘Foreign Policy’ stuff that I just can’t get interested in. With you around I won’t ever have to bother with any of that crap…I mean, what’s the difference between a ‘She-rite’ and a ‘Sue-me’, or whatever they’re called…and who gives a ‘Shi-ite’, anyway, ya know?”

    “Well…I don’t know, sir…but…OK, if you think it’s the right thing to do. You know, it so happens I do have some ideas about what to do over there in the Middle-East…”
