CEO of Peanut Company refuses to testify – Are we surprised?

mr-peanutStewart Parnell, CEO of the Peanut Corp of America, is pleading the 5th Amendment and refusing to talk before a House Subcommittee. His plant manager, Sammy Lightsey is also pleading the 5th.

WASHINGTON – The owner of a peanut company refused to testify to Congress on Wednesday amid the disclosure that he urged his workers to ship bacteria-tainted products, pleading with federal health officials that he should be able “turn the raw peanuts on the floor into money.”

Stewart Parnell, owner of Peanut Corp. of America, repeatedly invoked his right not to incriminate himself before the House subcommittee holding a hearing on a national salmonella outbreak blamed on his company. The outbreak has sickened some 600 people, may be linked to nine deaths — the latest reported in Ohio on Wednesday — and has resulted in one of the largest product recalls of more 1,800 items.

These guys knowingly shipped out a tainted product and consequently killing people…to save money?! But, since Karl Rove assumes a free pass on testifying before Congress, along with Harriett Meyers and Josh Bolton, one can see how tempting it would be to follow suit.

FruitFlyIt’s time Congress simply round up all of these criminals, lock ’em up and drop the keys in Davy Jones’ locker.

Rahm Emanuel: He’s a Chief of Whatzitz?!?!

The Republican Party, gosh I gotta tell ya…These guys are so full of total and utter bullshit that I could swear, their breath even smells like it.

Spotted with my sodomizing and yet, sharp eye, this video clip on dKos of K-K-Karl Rove on Faux Snooze trying to explain to Neal Cavuto what exactly are the duties of the President of the United States ‘ “Chief of Staff”.

Well, the Chief of Staff, there is no corporate role, but in the Chief of Staff in the White House is an honest broker. When the leader of the opposition Party in the House or Senate calls up the Chief of Staff of the President of the United States, he expects and has a right to expect that whatever he says to him will be properly conveyed to the President in an honest and forthright way. And it’s really troubling that, I mean, Rahm is smart, but he doesn’t have the trust and confidence of a lot of his Republican colleagues.

Yeah Karl – Unlike Rahm Emmanuel, who doesn’t have the trust of his Republican colleagues, you were Deputy Chief of Staff and you had all of the trust of your Democratic colleagues. In fact Karl; you were issued a subpoena six months ago by your fun-loving and trusting Democratic colleagues, which you still have refused to participate.

In fact, Karl; on the day you were expected to appear before the full House Committee, you sent your weasel of an attorney who noted that you left the United States rathern than appear before it.

In fact; it is by the good graces of the Democratic Party than the Congressional Sargeant at Arms hasn’t arrested you and frog-marched you in handcuffs before Congress right now!

Karl Rove has become the laughing stock of the country, and the court jester for the GOP. How long before the newest clown-gag will include four hundred Karl Roves climbing out of the VW Beetle while little children point and laugh, elephants beg for peanuts and the pretty girl in the sequined dress trips and sprains an ankle?

Karl Rove has become the stuffed-shirt of the GOP. Hark! I can hear the kilt-clad bagpipers playing “Amazing Grace” over the Republican grave-site!! Oh wait… No! No… It was just a little gas… Nevermind.

K-K-Karl Rove is the punk with a bad comb-over… The great-aunt with the mustache forcing you to kiss her on those mustached-wrinkled lips. …The herpes blister that’s been re-appearing on your foreskin since the days when your folks hired that baby-sitter when you were fourteen years old.

Oh… Sorry. Was that TMI?!!

Karl Rove, on the lamb; with his US Passport of course

Think Progress is featuring a small YouTube piece that notes that Karl Rove has apparently skipped the country and he’s AFK (computer-talk: “Away From Keyboard”). T-Progress credits Rove’s attempt to act like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid all wrapped into one because of the newest Congressional subpoena for him to appear and answer questions about the case involving the imprisonment of Alabama’s governor Siegelman. An investigation, if I might add, isn’t expected to be completed until the end of January ’09 – even though US Attorney General Micheal Mukasey says there’s no intentional “slow-down” on the case.

Lars!! The video if you would please…!


“Thank you, Lars!!”

Now let’s speculate:

But, I digress…Wishful thinking. Knowing that he’s no longer in this country gives me small comfort for the weekend that his toilet water won’t end up in US water supply…

Congress has given Karl Rove a 5-day pass, something Karl will also ignore – of course. One has to wonder if the Democrats have any brains by demanding his immediate arrest once he’s decided to return to our shores and resume his duties for the John McCain for President campaign.

Secret Young Republicans training compound located!!

First photos are emerging from behind the enemy lines, where their nefarious indoctrination techniques corrupt the innocent minds of America’s youth and prepare them for a life committed to espousing Republican ideology that runs counter to their own self interests!

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the Democratic operatives that have risked their lives to bring us this first haunting photo:

Elephant Slide

Here we can obviously see a seemingly innocent piece of playground equipment that has been twisted by the right-wing propaganda masters into some sort of sick political metaphor…

Undercover operatives for the Democratic Party have told us that Republican parents force their unwilling children up the molded plastic stairs into the GOP’s “Indoctrination Machine.” These children remain inside for up to 48 hours until they are fully processed. The children, once they are completely transformed into a smelly mass of waste material, will eventually tumble down the chute behind the Indoctrination Machine fully prepared to carry-on the Neocon Agenda.

Said one Republican mother after her child was expelled from the Indoctrination Machine: “Oh, he’s still the little stinker he always was….” where she snickered and waddled away.FruitFly

UNICEF, Save the Children and Sally Struthers have begun nationwide media campaigns to save these poor little children before they’ve become indoctrinated into the little GOP shit’s that’s expected of each and every one of them. So please: If you can give anything, please give to Sally Struther’s Christian Children’s Fund. Because Jesus, and only Jesus could love these little Turds.

I found it on Bartcop Nation… So it must be true!

Letters to the Editor: Gulf News (UAE)…One person’s thoughts on GWB

Bush LegacyAhh…. Those fabulous days when they laughed about Bill Clinton’s “foreign policies” when he became President. They laughed at our (DNC) stupidity with some dumb hick from Arkansas off to visit the foreign heads of state. The laughter! How they joked and riddled each of us…Clinton was our guy and we elected some dumb hick. …How well I remember those days…<sigh>

Well, the sunset hours of our current Texas-sized trailer-park trash and the fruits of his own “foreign policies” have begun to ripen. Ever wonder how people from foreign lands feel about our current “foreign relations genius? Of course we’ll overlook that that disaster of a trip Bush and his wife took to Argentina in Nov. 2005 . The one when Hugo Chavez made Bush looked like an idiot and the local press was reporting that the country had never seen such a mass-riots. The same Argentinian Summit where Bush retured home stumbling drunk and showed up to endorse Jerry Kilgore for Governor who ended up loosing in landslide…but I digress.

Today, Bush is visiting the Middle East. He’s hoping to cinch up the final days of his “legacy” over there. Rachel Maddow lead me to a Letter to the Editor in the United Arab Emirate’s Gulf News and I thought it was worth blogging.

You can read the entire letter for yourself, while I’ll just plagiarize the first sixty-five sentences. Now when you read it.. Read it allowed. …That way you’ll get the full effect of what the author is trying to say.

Ready? Okay..! Ehem..! “A Letter to the Editor! …One person’s viewpoint on our President of the United States: George W. Bush” …read out loud:

Problem is; nobody’s laughing.

Dear Diary

August 23, 2007

Yesterday was the most thrilling day of my life. I had such a wonderful time, I don’t know where to even begin.

While Congress was in recess, the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed and killed thirteen non-believers. But that wasn’t the best part. All of us from the Minnesota delegation got word that God’s Blessedly Appointed President of the United States was flying in on His Angel’s Wings to view the wreckage.

It so amazing to comprehend the reality that President Bush actually cares about these dead unbelievers! But was even more fantastic was when I realized he might be coming to Minnesota just to see me!kissies

I mean, President Bush is so… Oh I don’t know how to describe him…. He’s so handsome! The last time I had been with him here in Minnesota, we let Karl Rove tag along while the two of us got intimate over custard ice-cream at Glaciers Custard and Coffee Café in Wayzata. Now that I think of it, it was almost exactly a year ago! That means, if I would have let George have his way with me back then, God would have blessed us with a child that would be three months old! I wish we could have gotten rid of Rove.

So while we’re at the wreckage of the I-35W bridge, Laura Bush kept giving me dirty looks. Scowling at me and I think she mouthed the word “b-i-t-c-h” once while she was hiding behind the Presidential limousine trying to light a cigarette. She’s such a doll! What a sweetie. But if that nasty little cupcake can’t make God’s Anointed sexually happy, it would be a blessing for me to step in her place.

kissiesThere he was, standing on the 10th Avenue bridge looking at the wreckage next to the Governor and I couldn’t help myself by checking him out. There was this little breeze and the rear flap of the President’s suit coat flipped up and I have to say; the President has the best looking rump I’ve seen on any man in my life. It looks firm, and so round…and manly! He has those wide manly shoulders and those thick fingers. Marcus has that ugly flat-iron type of rump and his fingers are smooth, like a womans. And Marcus’ lips are full and icky while George’s lips are thin…and manly.

Everybody stood around and chatted. Laura returned smelling like a pack of Pall-Malls and she glared at me again, I think. Senator Amy Klobuchar was shaking her head chatting with some non-believers and Senator Norm Coleman kept looking staring at some woman’s breasts, I think it was his wife.

All of a sudden, George spotted me and that’s when I leaked akissies little pee in my panties. He pushed Governor Pawlenty out of the way (who almost fell over the railing) and came running after me! He grabbed me in those tree-trunks he calls arms and dipped me really low and kissed me long and deeply. His tongue, wrapped around my tongue, his hands holding me ever so strong. I could feel his bulge pulsing against my thigh. Every muscle in my body simply released, I think I might have even let out one of those silent farts. My entire body simply went limp; I was his and his forever.

I mean, I was being kissed by someone God Almighty had selected to be the President of the Free World! The fire of God when through me! I mean, this is what God meant for me when he called me to go Washington: To be put together with George just then, high above the mighty Mississippi, kissing me, loving my body. I was once again, that Fool for Christ.

He lifted me up and we stood there nose-to-nose and for one second, we were of one mind, of one intimate though. I was at the brink of loosing it. He smiled at me with those tiny little yellow teeth and I knew then that he really missed me.

kissiesHe was about to hug me and kiss me again when Laura broke my gaze. She was glaring at me like a hot Texas fire-brand. George pulled me in for another hug and kiss but I put both hands firmly on his chest and pushed back. He looked shocked, and hurt.

He said: “What? You don’t want to embrace?”

But I realized that if Laura could find the keys, she’d run me over with any of the parked cars in the area. Quickly, I said;

The people of Minnesota love you Mr. President, but I think one kiss was enough.”

He suddenly realized we were surrounded by lots and lots of people! He grinned wisely and his hand slid down by back and stopped on my own cute little bottom and I grinned back at him. He smirked as if he understood the same thought, that we could be giving off signals that would make tongues wag. And I think he also understood that one day soon (I hope), the two of us would share the same bed and we would make a passionate love that would make angels cry.

The President’s detail interrupted us and he waskissies whisked away. I was singing Jesus’ praises in my heart, and I went back to our limousine. I found Marcus in the front seat next to our driver re-applying his strawberry flavored Chap-stick using the rear-view mirror. I got into the back and Marcus joined me and we took off and that’s when Marcus and I go into a little bit of a fight.

I was so flushed with love, I had to tell him that President Bush gave me a little kiss. (I didn’t dare tell my husband the lust I have for the President!!) We were in the back of the limousine and and I’m starting to tell him about meeting President Bush. And when I got to the part where the President kissed me, Marcus interrupted me and said; “He did?! What was it like? Was it like a hard kiss or one of those quick soft kisses?”

I said; “Marcus! Don’t interrupted me!” and then I remembered my slightly damp panties and asked him for a tissue out of his purse.

And I’m continuing with my story by saying; “…George was about to hug me and I said…” Marcus interrupted me again and said; “Was it a strong hug? Because whenever he hugs me, it’s that wonderful manly-kind of hugs, you know?!”

I said; “Marcus! You’ve interrupted me again!”

He said; “Just tell me! Was it like a manly, firm, tight…manly kind of hugs?”!

That’s when I had heard enough. I said: “If you’re going to keep interrupting me, then I’m not going to tell you.”

Well, I hear Marcus downstairs talking to Senator Larry Craig again. I guess I should close here. Marcus’ X-Gay program at his psychiatry firm is going veryFruitFly 6 well! Ever since he converted Pastor Ted Haggard to be one hundred percent heterosexual, he’s been getting lots of calls from Republicans from all over the country! State representative Bob Allen will be staying with us while he’s being treated by Marcus next month and Glenn Murphy will be visiting us in October!

Until next time…

Mrs. Michele Bush…

Rove has “left’ the building (in two weeks)

Good Bye Turdblossom

Lord Voldemort Karl Rove announced his departure from the Ministry of Magic. Now all of the little Muggle children have been released from their prisons in Azkhaban. And Hogwarts will soon be ringing with the sounds off Ravenclaw, Griffendor, Hufflepuff and even Slytherin students running through its halls once again.

So far, there have been no Death Eaters running for Minister of Magic have said anything about the departing He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Update:

This just in: Death Eater, Dennis Hastert has announced resignation from the Ministry of Magic’s Department of Bratwurst, Knockwurst and Pastries. He will not seek re-assignment to the position that he’s held far too long. Many will applaud the decision but most are hesitant to surmise which Death Eater will take his place within the Ministry.
