Mouth-Full-Of-Ashes Wednesday

I'm swamped with work and my IP has been hiccuping, so I haven't been able to do much on the net this week. But I want to remind all those folks freaking over the hard-heartedness of the Bushco Veg-O-Budget that you heard it here first: And here, and here, and here, too.

And while they're over in Big Medialand getting the vapors over the discovery that Bush's paper-pushers have cooked the books on the Medicare numbers (again), I would remind them that this is an administration that has so distorted the process of estimating the costs of its obssessions that to give any credence to anything that comes out of their mouths or off their printers would be the height of stupidity. And why, given the current buzz on the part of both media and Congress, weren't they this concerned back when Richard Foster was revealing how he'd been threatened with termination last year if he dared tell the truth about the actual costs of the proposed Medicare bill? I didn't see them falling all over themselves to investigate any White House wrongdoing back then. It was all buzz, buzz, outrage, blogpile, and then dead silence.

Ah, nuts.
