Who's Minding the Store?

Another great question raised by Helen Thomas at today's whitehouse press briefing. I can't honestly figure our why more republicans are not outraged by the complete waste and fraudulent use of taxpayer dollars by the W, Rove and Co:
Q But this administration also has a history of having some questions made about paying columnists and having packaged news made available.

MR. McCLELLAN: I think the President made very clear what his views were on those issues, and some of the practices that had occurred were stopped, and steps were taken to prevent that from happening again.

Q Well, would his views be similar on this particular issue?

MR. McCLELLAN: I've expressed our views on this issue at this point.

Go ahead.

Q Who's watching the store, really? How can we spend millions of dollars to plant positive stories in Iraq and nobody around here knows --

MR. McCLELLAN: Again, this is --

Q -- anything about it? How is that possible?

MR. McCLELLAN: This is based off some media reports. We want to find out what those facts are.

Q How did they get their hands on the money to begin with?

MR. McCLELLAN: You might want to direct your questions to the Department of Defense to find out more information, Helen, because they're looking into it.

Q But it isn't a separate world. It's your world.

MR. McCLELLAN: That's why we're trying to find out the facts.

Seems glaringly obvious, doesn't it, to us? However, people who still support this venal crew actually admire them I think, windspike. Or they declare that they think it's important to respect our elected oficials, NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO. People in a book group I've been in for a few years made that actual statement, yesterday; not shitting you here. One of them works for the Navy; one of them is an intelligent IT person, but I suspect, a "Christian"; the third is some raving idiot, and they're all women. Shameful.
