The White House has Lost Emails?????

I know regular readers of this blog will be surprised to know that I'm SHOCKED over the fact that the White House has apparently lost a whole batch of emails, directly related to L'affair Plame. Evidently, Libby's lawyers asked for a bunch of discovery, and then complained that Fitzgerald wasn't turning things over to them. Then Fitz replied - "the White House has [inexplicably] lost them." Alright, the whole quote is mine, and he may actually believe that.

But does anyone else really believe that these were just lost inadvertantly? The law states that any communications of this nature are not the property of the president in power, but of the national archives, who concede that this may have been lost due to inadvertance, but it doesn't seem so.

Is there a person alive who, honestly speaking, really thinks that these were lost just through "inadvertance," or that the Bush administration has the slightest degree of respect for a law which declares that their correspondence is not their own?

It's a good thing he hasn't received a blow job in the Oval Office yet, otherwise the Republicans in Congress may have to impeach him. Until then, he's safe.

Query, though, why this only made it onto the back pages of the LA Times?

I wonder if the IRS would accept that explanation come audit time?

Or the FBI in the case of Child Porn downloaded from the internet? If only my clients could be as successful in "losing" their emails.

It's good to be the king...

If a BJ is all it will take to get that Moron out of Office, I'll do my patriotic duty and volunteer!

Maybe, you're wondering how come I landed on your blog. If so, you might want to apportion some of the blame to Evan Schaeffer's http://www.legalunderground.com, which by the bye has a rather neat blogroll.

Anyway, upon visiting your little nook in the vast galaxy of the Internet, I surmised you'd welcome some insight concerning President William Jefferson Clinton.

I, for one, can be easily persuaded that President Clinton introduced ... ah, maybe not in so many words ... "evolutionary economics". Acting within the constraints, imposed by this new economic discipline, the man made possible the hope that the nation's national debt could be discharged.

darn ol'paranoid me ... before depositing a comment here on your blog, I sent an e.mail to some 63 law school professors about the article, found at the other end of the above hyperlink.

I actually watched a republican strategist debate (with a straight face) that getting that blowjob was far worse than anything Bush has done.

Oh Lord, there's no talking sense into those ones.
