Liar Liar Liar Liar Liar

Kyle Sampson pretty much torpedoed his boss, Alberto "Torquemada" Gonzales, in his "voluntary" testimony before a senate committee this morning.

Calling Torquemada's earlier testimony "not entirely accurate", and IDing Gonzo and Harriet Miers as the "deciders", Sampson essentially pulled the rug from under the elaborate house of cards erected by the BFEE over the US Attorney firings.

If Gonzo's testimony was not "accurate", did that mean that it was, in actuality, a LIE?

Yep, that pretty much nails it.

Perjury. It is a nasty word, but that's the charge when you lie under oath (see Clinton, Bill cross-referenced with Lewinsky, Monica, with a subnote at Job, Blow).

Now if someone would only grow a set sufficient to bring charges against Gonzo I would be a very happy man.

But I kind of feel sorry for Sampson. Loyalty is prized far above anything else in the Bush Crime Family, so how long before poor Kyle ends up on the wrong end of an "accident"
