A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Wonkette reports that a high-ranking Republican staffer has been arrested for attempting to steal a plasma screen TV from a federal building and is suspected of having stolen the old plasma screen TV which this one replaced.

Now, I don't know whether this is true because I have not seen it reported anywhere else. If it is true, it raises some serious issues. For instance:

How did the staffer get the old TV out of the building without being observed. Geez, I can't buy a lottery ticket at the AM/PM without having my picture taken. Is there no surveillance in these buildings?

How lax is security at this building. If someone can sneak out with something the size of a plasma TV, what's to stop someone from sneaking something in which is far more sinister?

If it's true, will it be pushed down the memory hole like all the other reports of (R) misconduct. For example, Katrina Leung, the Plame Exposer, Ken Lay, Rudy, AWOL, Jack Ryan, the Gropinator, and the (R) staffers who accessed (D) confidential communications.
