Holy Nixon Hating!

     Don't like Richard Mellon Scaife?  Can't say I blame you.  Steve Kangas died in one of Scaife's buildings.  Kangas also wrote a really weird peice, called The Origins of the Overclass.  Starting in the paragraph with the word "oust", Kangas starts explaining a theory that the CIA, using Bob Woodward (just out of Naval Intelligence himself), ousted Nixon.  That the Washington Post was acting for the CIA.  I really don't know what to make of this theory.  It is told in a compelling way, and I don't know any factual errors in the paper.  I'd be interested to hear if anyone else noticed something obviously false about any of this.

     Since then, Bob Woodward has written some odd work, including Secret Wars of the CIA, mostly about CIA director Casey of Iran-Contra fame.  It includes the death bed confession, which Mrs. Casey says never could have happened.  Woodward also wrote something called "Plan of Attack" which generally depicted Bu$hCo's front man (Bushwah himself) in the warm glow of historic certainty.  I bet lots of liberals were wondering what that was all about.  How could anyone write a whole book kissing the dainty posterior of one George Walker Smurf?  Bob Woodward was the man. 

     Now, apparently, Bob Woodward's post-investigation confession clears Libby!  Talk about utter bullshit.  By the way, Carl Bernstein did not become a sell out anti-American retard like his Watergate co-star. 

     Was Woodward ever decent?  Kangas thinks not.
