Well, Cheney's chief of staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby got indicted on perjury and obstruction-of-justice charges today. Yeah, yeah, he's innocent until proven guilty, but let's just say the nickname "Scooter" is not going to inspire a lot of deference or intimidation in the prison shower. I'll save the full-fledged four-alarm raging kegger for if/when Karl Rove gets nailed for something, but at the very least this latest news is worth a celebratory G&T or something. I will not, however, be participating in the drinking game whereby I do a shot every time a Republican tries to claim that what Scooter is accused of doing is tooootally different from what Clinton was accused of doing, because a) I'd like to be sober enough to have some tolerance left over for the game tomorrow, and b) I'm not sure I have that much alcohol in my house.
By the way, has anyone seen Ann Coulter lately? God, she looks terrible, by which I mean more terrible than usual, but more than that, she's just got this defeated tone in her voice. Like between the dismal approval ratings, the rampant spending, the Harriet Miers hoo-ha and now the Libby indictments, she's pulled back the curtain and discovered that the Great and Powerful Oz is just some room-temperature-IQ Texan with nice suits and a big-ass microphone. Oh, how the skanky have fallen.
I'm going to cut the schadenfreude now before God decides to take some karmic vengence on yet another Georgia quarterback, and just roll right into the Ten:

3. Pet Shop Boys, "Flamboyant" (Scissor Sisters mix)

Now it's off to say a Rosary for Joe T . . .
