R.I.C.O.; Suavé? Val P. -n- Rove 4EVR

I officially suck; going for the cheap gag on a blog entry heading is *so* November 2004...

But seriously folks, the Washington Post [a.k.a. "WaPo"] is reporting that CIA leak probe investigator Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald [a.k.a "P-Fitz"... okay, maybe not.. how about "Fitz"] "has interviewed a wider range of administration officials than was previously known." Like, oh, "former CIA director George J. Tenet and deputy director John E. McLaughlin, former CIA spokesman Bill Harlow, State Department officials..." Not exactly bit-players.

This may lead one to believe that, rather than simply relying on a stringent Federal 'anti-leaker' statute, Fitz might be shooting for something quite a bit more devastating than even the 18 USC 641 (which has come up quite often, lately): Fitz could be going for the ol' 18 USC 1961-1968... the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act - R.I.C.O.

By establishing fact patterns that may demonstrate that administrative branch employees (yeah - they're supposed to fucking work for We the People... must be a positive nuisance when you're an ethically-retarded theocrat trying to establish a worldwide imperialist corporatocracy) acted in concert in order to achieve any of the many illegal activities as listed in 18 USC 1961, Fitz may have himself quite the convoluted - but traceable, given the sheer number of key administrative witnesses that've been interviewed - tale of Federal Administrative Branch malfeasance... with the presumable goal of having mass indictments handed out amongst the corrupt organization.

Hell; Patrick Fitzgerald could just walk into a cabinet meeting and get 2/3 of the paperwork handed out.

This is starting to look more like a freakin' Mafia sting op than, well, whatever the misfits at Fox News are calling it. Sick shit, my friends. Sick shit.

Oh. For the record: I honestly take no REAL joy in seeing my country go down the shitter -- making snarky commentary is the only way I can keep myself from going berserk.

Humor is emotional chaos remembered in tranquility.
