My fantastic dream

Sometimes I wonder if I am living in a dreamworld... too bizarre to even be called a nightmare. How else can you explain how it could happen that the chief prosecutor in the Abramoff case, Noel L. Hillman, could be stepping down? Why is the prosecutor stepping down? Now this is really funny. You're going to love this. Because he has been offered a federal judgeship by... yup...George W. Bush.

But wait... Guess what title the prosecutor holds at his job? Chief of the department's public integrity division. I'm not making this up.

Prosecutor Will Step Down from Lobbyist Case
By Philip Shenon and Elisabeth Bumiller
The New York Times
Friday 27 January 2006

I almost have to admire Bush for how blatantly honest he is about being willing to be so publicly corrupt.

How confident... in front of an entire nation.... confident that no matter what he does he will be able to get away with it. Such hubris is beyond anything I've ever seen before.

And then there's the prosecutor who would actually accept such an offer and then expect to actually serve as a judge. Well, if this all happens as Bush envisions it, I really have to hand it to him. This is a dream right?

Who is writing this screenplay being played out as I
sleep? What an imagination I must have to create a
dream as fantastic as this. I can't wait to see what I come up with next. I almost don't want to wake up.
I wrote these words yesterday and then watched the 6 O'Clock news to see if this would be mentioned on the News Hour with Jim Lehrer. It didn't come up. Why isn't this front page news? Maybe it is me that's dreaming... maybe that's why I can't seem to wake anybody else up.
