The House Judiciary Committee voted today to issue contempt of Congress citations against Josh Bolton and Harriet Miers. Showing his utter lack of knowledge on the subject, the Snowman became unhinged in his response:
"Now we have a situation where there is an attempt to do something that's never been done in American history, which is to assail the concept of executive privilege which hails back to the administration of George Washington and in particular to use criminal contempt charges against the White House chief of staff and the White House legal counsel," said White House Spokesman Tony Snow.
Of course, the limits of executive privilege have indeed been challenged and checked, dating all the way back to George Washington's administration.
Still though, you can't help but feel a little sorry for the guy. I'll forgive him a flub or two given the enormous amount of lipstick he has to apply and re-apply to the pig that is George W. Bush's policies.
