Gonzo Coverage

When I first woke up one of the first things I did was try to flip on the Gonzales hearings. Nothing on the local station. CNN was shwoing some VT press conference. So was MSNBC. *FOX* of all channels actually had Gonzo's opening statement live, but then they broke away for the VT press conference. But C-Span still had it... but then the House started their day, and they flipped off. At that point there was no channel (at least that we get) that was covering it live. Presumably they will come back it it, but that just annoys me. Yes, the VT stuff is sensational, but basically nothing is changine now and the evaluations they are doing now are not likely to have much long lasting impact. (Unless of course the hysteria gets the better of people and the VT shootings prompt a huge wave of overreaction that end up causing more harm than good...) The stuff that is actual imporant breaking news right now are the hearings, not the 4th straight day of handwringing over the events at VT.

In any case, I'm now watching online on C-SPAN3. We're only a few minutes in, but it is obvious already that this is going to be fun. Senator Specter (a REPUBLICAN) right now is Grilling Gonzo and grilling him hard. He is obviously pissed off and impatient. Gonzo looks like he is going to cry.

Kennedy is starting his questioning now. He is much calmer than Specter. He is being much nicer to Alberto. This might be a good time to get showered and ready for work before more angry Senators come on. :-)

By the way, it is the oldest lesson in Washington, proved time and time again, when will these people *ever* learn (both parties)... it is the coverup that gets you, not the crime. If they had fired exactly the people they fired, at exactly the times they fired them, for exactly the reasons they fired them... but had been honest about it... then none of this would ever have become an issue. This is all blowing up because the whole raft of them have been lying and making things up and destroying documents and hiding emails... etc, etc, etc. Over something that was probably perfectly fine for them to do in the first place.

Idiots.

Anyway, TPM Muckraker is doing up to the minute coverage of the important aspects of the testimony. Good place to watch if you can't actually watch or listen to the whole hearing. Since I will have to be at work and in meetings and such long before the hearings are over, I'll probably just be checking in there periodically through the day.

I love this stuff.
