*Freday, with Fred the Cat

Cats do not tell lies. People do tell lies. I’m proud, once again, to be a cat.

Have you humans ever had a boss that you were so devoted to that you would lie and go to prison for him, even if there was a pardon promised to you? Neither has her highness or Mr. Pop. I heard them say so. So is that really the case with this guy Libby or is there more to it? You have to wonder.

He is willing to forever be a convicted felon just to cover for his boss? I just don't see it and neither do the Pops.


Have a great weekend everyone and for those of you living where it’s really cold, crawl back in your snuggly warm cat bed and have a snooze on me.

*Yes Donnie, I changed the title just for you. So where’s the extra Cosmic catnip you promised?

I just don't get how they can ignore the trail of breadcrumbs leading to Cheney's doorstep. But with the looming health issues, let's hope we see an "exit/stage right" soon. We should be lucky enough to have them replace him with a cat.

It might hit 50 here in Michigan. Time to open the pool! Btw, Waxman is holding a hearing next week and wants Fitz to testify.

I think Scoots must feel lucky that he only got a slap on the wrist. Lying sack of doo doo.

We've had spring all week here in Bama, but this might be called summer in some places. High 70's, keeps the cats nice and comfy in the sunny spots. Got to enjoy it now, before the dog days begin, and I just lay around all day, becuase its too hot to do anything else. I like it when I lay around all day enjoying the nice and cool weather.

Sorry, I'd rather talk about weather than politics.

Freday? Officially renamed day of the week, I like it.

Law degree aside, one can't take someone with the nickname "Scooter" too seriously.

Hey AA, especially when his boss's nicknamed "Shooter".


Good call, Fred. Happy, er, Freday. {-;

I wonder if he still thinks that Bigdick Cheney will come riding to his rescue, or do they have something even bigger to hold over Scootcher's head, so that he gratefully accepts his role of blame in all this? Hang down your head, Tom Dooley!

I was looking forward to a public flogging myself! Guess we can't have everything we want. Hey Fred, you finally got the respect you deserve! WooHoo!

A cat named "Scooter" might be named so because of "scooting" across the floor trying to remove a dingleberry (dingleberry = "kind word for Karl Rove or, in this case, Dick Cheney").

cool of you to notice things so clearly again fred. now, us barn cats can be sneaky, but that's a technique of hunting that requires skill and patience. it isn't a lie to be still and quiet by the mouse run or the gopher hole.

most of the people i know lie so much they have to hire other people to call the dogs.

have a great weekend. we're going to be in the high 80's out here in arizona. that will bring out a whole new raft of new critters trying to sneak into my barn. a barn monster's work is never done.

peace yo.

Just think, if Scooter hadn't lied, we would have ended up with a VP charged with treason. From the Rethug standpoint, they won by losing. From the standpoint of justice - all was lost. So we know the rethugs are group thinkers, not one honest, straightforward person among them. Happy Freday - I like that. Let's keep it.

I guess he is looking at Negroponte and seeing that being convicted and pardoned is not too bad. We also don't know what kind of cash and other incentives there were under the table.

Fred? Sorry to bust in on you, but I have to break this to jm.

jm? I'm really sorry to have to let ya know this, but I've had DVT. It's painful and it's a pain in the... leg, but unless you get a pulmonary embolism - or a coronary embolism, you will probably be o.k. in a few weeks.

Even if you get the pulmonary embolism (had that too!), it's possible to melt it away with heparin injections and mass quantities of (ugh) Coumadin (ugh).

So much to my dismay, Shooter will probably be O.K.

I guess that since Haldeman and Ollie North and the rest of the republic party felons from Watergate and Iran-Contra are having no problem finding jobs and fame and fortune in today's political landscape. Libby probably sees any time he has to serve as a badge of honor. sick.

Further, since Judith Miller already served like 6 months, (and she's a girl) Libby could hardly whine to his masters about going to Club Fed, he'd look like a real girly-girl.

Well...Ole Scoots will go to where all convicted felons of the GOP go...straight to his Fellowship Chair at Prestigious Conservative Think(not) Tank for Tons of $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

So never fear for Ole Scoots...them GOPers take the best care of their very own convicts!

Hi PoP

Care to help us send Blogs for Bush founder Mark Noonan to Iraq?

He used to lament the fact that he could not serve. But the army recently raised its enlistment age to 42.

He's qualified and we think he needs to go.

I hope you're not upset that Fred the Cat guest-cat-blogged on my own blog this week. Both The Mighty Fang and Mencken went on strike. I think they didn't like it when I took them to the vet to get them poked with needles, and have been punishing me ever since :-(.

Badtux, you need to give your pooties some perspective. Tell them they're lucky you didn't take them to Walter Reed. Then, give them some catnip to make them feel better.

Fred...I see the POP's take really good care of your nails. I guess that's in case a nasty ol' neocon wanders into your perimeter you can give them a sound thrashing with your claws. You're so clean and fluffy and all...but I bet you pack a pretty good slash when the need arises.

Didn't you guys hear??? Jack Bauer has Scooter's family as per Dick's orders... he talks, and JB gets to "go to work"...

"For King and country" is not burried yet even after of countless revolutions all over the world. There seem to be a need for us to be leashed, muzzled and handled by those of whom we deem to be above us. What the hell is matter with us? Yes, Fred, I know we are just dogs.

Hiya Fred the cat. You're looking mighty soft and beautiful. I noticed you guest-catted at another blog. That's pretty darned cool! My cats started asking me when they could do guest photos.

"Freday with Fred the cat" is really a cute concept. I hope you get your catnip.

Cats may not lie, Fred. But they do lie down - a lot, as I've noticed you doing in the pics PoP posts of you.

I'm watching my cats lying down in sunny spots on the carpet right now.

Great life you cats have...
