The Truth takes a hit ....again,roland-burris-perjury-investigation-021409.article

Soon to be Ex-Senator Burris' attorney claims that the "fluid nature" of the questioning prevented him from telling the truth under oath.

Burris' lawyer, Timothy Wright III, said that the "fluid nature" of the questioning and a review of the transcript showed Burris that he "was unable to fully respond to several matters."

UPDATE 2/16/09: New Affidavit Forthcoming

As reported in the Chicago Tribune today, soon to be ex-senator Burris has now acknowledged that he did offer to raise some money in exchange for the Senate seat. Guess that menas that last week's affidavit should be considered as a Work in Progress.

Mice Relocation Act of 2009

In an effort to relocate the mice population prior to the 2010 census and ensure her re-election, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made sure that $30 million dollars has been set aside to restore their habitat in the San Francisco area.

No word on whether ACORN has plans to open a satellite office to ensure complete voter registration.

I was for my appointment before I was against it

Thus says Commerce Secretary Designate Judd Gregg in announcing his decision to withdraw from consideration to be part of the Cabinet of President Obama (PO).

It appears that the decision to wrest control of the Census away from the Commerce Department was the final straw for Gregg. Any claims that Gregg did not agree with the fiscal policy of PO and the stimulus/porkulus/spendulus Bill are unfounded as the socialization of the economy and plans to expand government were the hallmark of PO's campaign.

When asked for his reaction after the Gregg withdrawal, former Presidential candidate John Kerry said "I was against the appointment before I was for the appointment but now I'm against the appointment"

Speaker Pelosi refused comment saying "I have to worry about the mice in my District"
