In a Jam?


Hypocrisy has a way of catching up to you at the most inopportune time, doesn’t it?  You know, like when you are down to 36% in the polls, before the story of your sneaky, half-truth maneuver ever hit the news wires?  I bet George Bush is a peach of a guy to be around the weekend.  Here’s a sampling of this morning’s headlines on the Leaker In Chief:

For President, First a Leak; Now a Jam (NYTimes)

The Leaker In Chief (The Louisville Courier-Journal)

Bush’s Leak (The Boston Globe)

Spin Cycle Springs a Leak (LATimes)

Critics Label Bush Hypocrite for Authorizing Leak (Houston Chronicle)

Another White House Is Buying Silence (Boston Globe)

White House Defends Leak as "In the Public Interest" (NYDaily News via San Jose Mercury News)

Leak-Hating President as Leaker (ABCNews)

Oh yeah. Lovely weekend with the Bush’s, I’m sure. Just swell.
