Countdown: Bushed! The Secret Gitmo, Shooting Ducks And Crazy Dick

Another day, another set of outrages from the Bush Adminstration. First up is the news that the Pentagon has confirmed the existence of Camp 7, the secret, secret prison within Guantanamo--given the violations we know about, what horrors lie inside a place they wouldn't even admit to? Then there is the story of President Bush's inappropriate sense of humor. When hosting the 2007 Stanley Cup Winners, the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim, at the White House, he joked the reason for so much security was that the Veep heard their was some Ducks around, an allusion to his duck hunting exploits, which include shooting a friend in the face. I bet that Sammy Pahlsson found that a knee-slapper. And speaking of the shoot-first, have-them-apologize-later Vice President, he spoke at the CPAC conference yesterday and offered this defiant endorsement of the Bush years:

"The President has made the right decisions for the right reasons and he always reflected the values of the American people," Cheney declared, "Would I support those same decisions today? You're damn right I would."

Which, of course, necessitates the only response one can give, by Keith Olbermann:

Yeah, but you’re crazy.
