I look forward to my TomPaine.com newsletter every morning. Lots of good stuff to read, lots of views from people that are intelligent and well-versed in the bullshit flying around Washington. Todays view on Scooter's current predicament is from Dennis Kelleher. A short resume on him: Dennis Kelleher is a legislative director for a Democratic senator. He was the deputy staff director and general counsel for the senior Democrat on the Senate Committee on Help, Education, Labor and Pensions and he was a litigation partner at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom.
To me, its does seem like a no-brainer that an intelligent person would not attempt to lie his way through a Grand Jury & TWO visits from the FBI. Unless he had others that could cover his tracks or back up his lie it makes you wonder why Scooter had a brain fart of this magnitude. Kelleher suggests that if you follow the timeline, Scooter lied to cover-up Cheney's involvement and prevent a pre-election scandal from derailing the Bush/Cheney re-election.
Its a good read..check it out here.
