The Manchurian Candidate in a G-string
.....What separates Jim/Jeff from the rest of the pack of media whores is that HE REALLY IS A WHORE. Yes, as in male prostitute. As in, he has sex with men for pay, while also being a valued Republican press, ahem, orifice. Daily for the past two years, Jeff/Jim has attended press conferences in the White House and is one of the "journalists" favored by George W. Bush.
Don't look away from this, America. Don't shrug your shoulders and call it, as Ari Fleischer used to say about every breaking scandal, a "partisan fishing expedition." This is not partisan. This is The Manchurian Candidate in a G-string. This is a veritable golden shower of high crimes and misdemeanors. Why?
You might recall the name Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA agent whose expertise was weapons of mass destruction.
As I put it in my Jan. 8, 2004 column ("Watergate Redux"), the leak of her identity "served as nasty political revenge against Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson, who would not take the fall for the claim that Saddam had received uranium from Niger. Nonetheless, those claims became the pretext for an invasion of a nation that posed no imminent threat to our nation, in violation of every international treaty or code of conduct to which we have ever subscribed ... There's a criminal loose in the White House, a person (or persons) so dangerous that they would jeopardize national security for short-term political gain."
"Jeff Gannon" might be one of those people. Or, then again, he might just be one of those people's, ahem, handmaidens. Either way, he's one of the "journalists" to whom Plame's name was leaked and who, in turn, attacked Wilson. "Jeff Gannon" also knew about Bush's plans to invade Iraq four hours before Bush announced them in March 2003. .....
