Scandalicious



ass-raping America is hard work


In light of my last post, this is probably courting trouble. But I'd mentioned to someone else that I wanted to do it, and I still want to do it, so I'm going to try to do it.

I want to assemble an as-thorough-as-possible list of all of the Bush administration scandals. The problem is, there are so fucking many I can't even begin to remember them all. This isn't for any particular political point, just for the sake of long-term perspective.

Here are a few off the top of my head (in no particular order):

Hookergate
Illegal Wiretapping
The Valerie Plame affair
(corollary: The Niger forgeries)
The Abramoff Scandal
The Ney Scandal
Dick Cheney shoots an old dude in the face-gate
Dieboldgate
(corllary: Florida '00 and Ohio '04)
The Jeff Gannon incident
The WMD Deception
Everybody Hates Rumsfeld
(corollary: Unequipped and Unarmored Troops)
Pre-Katrina
Post-Katrina
Post-Post-Katrina
(corollary: Heckuva Job Brownie-gate)
Halliburton/KBR/War Profiteering
The Pentagon-Israel Spy Case
Medicare Plan D
Tom DeLay Is So Fucked-gate
Torture-gate
The Armstrong Williams incident
Anton Scalia's Recusal Refusals
The Downing Street Memos
Eastern European Black Detention Centers
Guantanamo Bay
... and lest we forget, that whole Iraq War thing.

That feels like a good start, but I'm sure I'm missing a lot. If any of you know of something I've forgotten, post it comments and I'll add it to the list. I'll also be trying to go through and source everything I've listed so far.

Update:

My Pet Goat-gate
Fuck the Constitution, I'm a Wartime Preznit
Bigger Deficit than the Previous 42 Presidents Combined
