Spot the Loony

Remember the Monty Python game show "Spot the Loony" where the player saw clips of ordinary people doing ordinary things but one person was doing something totally whacko?? Well, let's play "Spot the Loony" here!

Who is the Loony one here??:

1) Keeping Roberto Gonzales as attorney general will be "harmful to the Justice Department because he has lost his credibility. When he said that he wasn't involved in discussions or deliberations, and then is contradicted by his three top aides and also by documentary evidence, ... his credibility has been substantially undermined and I think it does hurt the administration, and inevitably it hurts the (Republican) party." ~ Senator Arlen Spector R-PA

2)"All of America saw why so many of us had felt for so long that he shouldn't be attorney general. He was not in command of the facts. He contradicted himself, and he doesn't really appreciate the role of attorney general." ~ Senator Charles Schumer, D-N.Y

3)To Atty General Gonzales: "I don't believe that you're involved in a conspiracy to fire somebody because they wouldn't prosecute a particular enemy of a politician or a friend of a politician, but at the end of the day, you said something that struck me: that sometimes it just came down to these were not the right people at the right time. If I applied that standard to you, what would you say?" ~ Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC

4)"Be alert and direct and honest with this committee. Give it your best shot." ~ Senator Jeff Sessions, R-AL

5)"The attorney general went up and gave a very candid assessment, and answered every question he could possibly answer, honestly answer, in a way that increased my confidence in his ability to do the job. And as the investigation, the hearings, went forward, it was clear that the attorney general broke no law, did no wrongdoing. And some senators didn’t like his explanation, but he answered as honestly as he could. This is an honest, honorable man, in whom I have confidence." ~ G. W Bush, Emperor

That is easy, in GW's world people # 1-4 are the loonies!!

We loose.

All these bush loyalists all talk alike and adhere to one philosophy (which the media bought into from day one): If you attack me, you're attacking ____ (the troops, the American people, the brave men and women..., the career professionals). Such crybabies. Here's the jawdropping video segment as source:

Do we really want a whiny little child running the Justice Department? Ditto the country, I suppose.
