I was hoping I’d be able to discuss the White House indictments of Scooter Libby and Karl Rove, but I had to write this before Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald held his press conference on Friday.

Speculation by the media before the release of the Grand Jury’s decisions, however, indicate that Libby faces federal charges and Rove is left swinging in the breeze for the time being.

This just the day after Bush’s choice for the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers, bowed out of the nomination citing the need to protect the Executive Branch of the federal government.

Don’t you believe that one. There are two possibilities as to why Miers withdrew from consideration for a job she was clearly not qualified for.

The first possibility is that President Bush needed to shore up his ultra-conservative base because he’s now as unpopular as Nixon was when he resigned as president. The right wing ideologues have been grooming judges since the mid-1970s and Bush’s ignoring them in favor of Miers, someone they didn’t know, seemed an awful lot like a slap in the face.

If Bush picks one of their boys, they’ll be happy once again and will give the president the unwavering, unquestioned support he needs as his poll numbers continue to tank n threatening his ability to protect his buddies in the oil industry, his ability to keep troops in Iraq, and his desire to drive the national debt up so high that social programs like Social Security will have to be eliminated just to pay China back all the money we’ll owe them.

The other possibility as to why Miers quit is a bit more complex and a lot more paranoid. The first possibility is attractive to Democrats because some have been convinced that Bush was incompetent since stealing the 2000 election. (Other Democrats also think Bush himself is incompetent, but that his administration n V.P. Dick Cheney, Rove, et al n is very evilly competent in its destruction of true democracy.)

The second possibility is that Miers was nominated precisely because the evil cabal in charge of the White House wanted a means to deflect attention away from the looming indictments in the Plame investigation.

On Tuesday, press rumors were that Fitzgerald would be announcing his indictments on Thursday. Sure enough, before the sun got up good and the Grand Jury convened on Thursday, Miers’ resignation was announced. When the indictments were to be announced later in the day, the press would be talking about two huge political stories out of Washington instead of being able to concentrate on just one.

But Fitzgerald fooled ‘em and said he wouldn’t go public with his findings until Friday. A very slight miscalculation by the Cabal that allowed the press to spend all day Thursday talking about Miers.

In addition to nominating Miers to deflect attention away from Rove and Libby, the Cabal put her name up to stir up the conservatives. They were getting a little lazy, what with the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government firmly in their pockets. Nominating someone they didn’t know would fire them up and get them mobilized for the start of the 2006 congressional election.

It would also get them to love Bush even more than they already did because he would accede to the pressure they put on and appear to be doing exactly what they wanted n make it seem to them that they could make decisions for the rest of the country. Now feeling omnipotent, they would forgive Bush and the Cabal all sins and agree to everything, even things that would not normally fit into their very narrow worldview.

This, of course, is important because the Cabal is totally Machiavellian n unconcerned with conservative ideals socially, economically or politically. They want power and they plan to keep it no matter who they have to lie to, which constitutional rights they have to burn, or how many American soldiers and marines they have to “sacrifice” for the greater good of their desires.

By the time you read this, the indictments will be released and, I’ll betcha, the right wing of this nation once again holding a love fest for their Commander in Chief. It’s “intelligent design” in action.
