Like the Mafia

Remember Tom Hagen, the character played by Robert Duvall in The Godfather? He was the Corleone Family consiglieri, whose job it was to clean up the untidy loose ends left lying around after the family did its business. Remember the horse's head in the bed? That was the work of Tom Hagen.

Fast forward to Texas a few years ago, when Baby Doc was governor and thinking about a run for higher office, and that's exactly the role that Bushevik consiglieri and Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers played in the Bush Crime Family.

Turns out, big surprise, that little Harriet was a major player in the coverup engineered by The Family to eliminate those annoying little factoids that could have a negative effect on Baby Doc's Prezdintin' aspirations. Like that small fact that he deserted from his National Guard unit, even after his influential father, Don Georgio, pulled any number of strings to get him into it.

This is historical fact. No reasonable person has been able to refute it, even though there has been upwards of $10,000 reward waiting for a couple of years for anyone who can prove that Baby Doc was in that guard unit when he says he was there.

So Harriet, the dutiful soldier, scrubbed the records, Baby Doc is now Prezdint, and she reaps her reward.

It boggles the mind. And what boggles it more than anything is that they aren't even trying to hide this shit. They don't care.

Why should they hide it? Look at the coverage for Katrina vs your own links for VFP110. The media is 99% in bed and doing what ever bidding is needed by the oil war mongers.
