All those who are facilitating the Bush Administration by excusing their deceptions are aiding and abetting. All those people who are splitting hairs and rewriting events are hypocrites. The people who are helping to perpetrate some of the biggest lies in American history are accessories to the fact.

Kay Bailey Hutchinson's defense of the Bush Administration is a slap in the face. Either she thinks we're all stupid or she can no longer recognize the border between right and wrong.

Ann Coulter's demand that we swallow her spewed excuses for Bush and the Neo-cons borders on treason.

So, as the pious right-wingers go about peddling their whitewash and sliming their detractors they are, in fact, involved in amoral behavior. They are in fact just as guilty as the Bush Administration and their Neo-con minions.

Remember the old saying, " Clinton lied and nobody died. Bush lied and people died. " Well ... the truth of the matter is that people are still dying as a result of their despicable, unethical behavior.

Libby and Rove told reporters with malice aforethought about Joseph Wilson and his wife. No amount of ifs, ands or buts changes that fact. And if you want to believe that George Bush and Dick Cheney didn't condone that behavior I've got a bridge to an Alaskan island to sell you.

The fact that we are even allowing a debate over this kind of behavior as being acceptable demonstrates just how morally bankrupt the far right has become. The slippery slope has turned into a vertical sheet of glass ending in pragmatic ends justifying means. These are excuses we're hearing, we are witnessing first hand obstruction of justice.

Sweetie pies. This isn't a dad gum whine. This is a sure enough roar of righteous indignation. We must rip the guise of acceptability from this abhorrent behavior and show it for what it is. We must yank out the evil by its roots and reject the concept that it's OK for politics to be a profession of ill repute. IT IS NOT OK.

Defeating Roe v. Wade does not mean selling your soul to the devil. Hoping that affirmative action is thrown out does not justify closing your eyes to the amoral behavior going on in front of you. Demanding an end to Medicaid does not mean erecting a fascist state with lies. Wanting a strong America doesn't mean starting unilateral wars and justifying them with falsehoods, half-truths and omissions.

The only thing that should be coming out of the mouths of supporters of the George Bush Administration should be "I'm sorry! "
