Well no wonder they call the Rethugs the "Family Values Party". They are forever taking time off from work because they want to spend more time with their families and more time to walk the family dog.
Have you ever seen such devotion to "FAMILY" ????
These Fascists belong in front of a firing squad - for the damage they have brought our DEMOCRACY !!!!!

If it is Friday a neoCon is heading back to the hills ... the '00 '04 viral infection ("the bushie virus") is dying out.

I never understood why Friday helps when it comes to dumping bad news. The Sunday morning programs can pick up whatever is dumped as fairly recent news.

It is time for a memorial.
Remember the first of the bushie loyalist empire to take a fall for not being a good enough bushie? Taguba:
On the afternoon of May 6, 2004, Army Major General Antonio M. Taguba was summoned to meet, for the first time, with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in his Pentagon conference room ... At best, Taguba said, “Rumsfeld was in denial.”
(The New Yorker, Hersh, emphasis added).
That essence of the wannabe bushie neoCon empire continues to this very day, and will continue for years into the future because it is a disease that is going untreated within bushie land.
The first of the species has been isolated in a book which, among other things, focuses this out of the closet statement by a topper in the bushie clan:
One of the things that can happen in Washington when you work in an agency is that you forget who sent you there. And it’s important to remind people that you’re George Bush people. … If there’s one empire I want built, it’s the George Bush empire.
(One Party Country, p. 102, quoting RNC's Ken Mehlman, emphasis added).
Bushies, we call on you to give up the coy bu$hit dudes and dudettes. Millions of people are on to you big time. You are see thru bushies, so get over it.
And going back into the bushie tree of devolution and perversion of every american government agency, which preznit blush now calls "my government", we see what has been predicted by bloggers here for years:
Eighteen agencies have been asked by the Office of Special Counsel to preserve electronic information dating back to January 2001 as part of its governmentwide investigation into alleged violations of the law that limits political activity in federal agencies.
The OSC task force investigating the claims has asked agencies, including the General Services Administration, to preserve all e-mail records, calendar information, phone logs and hard drives going back to the beginning of the Bush administration. The task force is headed by deputy OSC special counsel James Byrne.
(T. Insider, emphasis added).
They say widespread and we have said all along "tip of the iceberg". The law has been disregarded wholesale:
Politicization of the federal government has been illegal for decades. The 1939 Hatch Act specifically prohibits partisan campaign or electoral activities on federal government property, including federal agencies.
(Think Progress, emphasis added).
And so far there is a finding of serious underlying wrongdoing:
The Office of Special Counsel, which has already recommended that GSA chief Lurita Doan be suspended or fired for participating in partisan activities while on the job
