Cheney: Mutiny In Bounty
So, another Cheney lackey has alledgedly turned coat and is spilling the beans on his tarnished boss. This time David Wurmser - Cheney's Middle East Advisor - is taking the stool and spotlight and cooperating with Fitzgerald. (source: Raw Story)
In all of this, I can't help but let myself laugh at the religious underpinnings of these 'traitors' of the Bush/Cheney regime.
Of course I'm speaking of Judas of Iscariot. Only this time, the motive isn't pieces of gold. It's saving pieces of your ass. Probably considered a lateral move in terms of ethics, but hey - who can blame Wurmser or Libby? They have to have known this whole time that they were swimming with sharks. Once Fitzgerald drew blood on them, they weren't about to stay in the water.
