Setting the low bar for ethics
“My husband wants the very highest ethics in the White House. So, I suspect whenever this washes out, we’ll see who did it, if anyone did.”
— First Lady Laura Bush, Wednesday, December 31, 2003, on the revelation of the classified identity of a CIA operative (Valerie Plame)
Well, what else is there to say other than our President and his various windbags are lying sacks of sh*t.
McClellan: “If anyone in this administration was involved in it [the improper disclosure of an undercover CIA operative’s identity], they would no longer be in this administration.”
Bush: “If somebody did leak classified information, I’d like to know it, and we’ll take the appropriate action.”
Bush: “If someone committed a crime, they will no longer work in my administration.”
