Once again Bush is hoping to "catapult the propaganda":

Raw Story:

At the urging of top conservative bloggers, the White House set up a Friday morning conference call to promote its message on the subject of executive privilege, RAW STORY has found.

"The White House hosted a blogger conference call to discuss the issues surrounding the Bush administration's use of executive privilege in the probe of the firings of eight federal prosecutors," wrote Ed Morrissey, who produces the blog Captains Quarters. "The White House arranged the call based on a recommendation by this blog, in order to familiarize the blogosphere with the legal and political arguments on which the administration will rely to prevail in the upcoming fight regarding the contempt citations Congress seems likely to approve."

I'm very curious to know who else was in on this conference call. I'm equally as curious to know if the hate-site-sponsoring Michelle Malkin was on the line. Or if the al-Qaeda-plot-supporting Charles Johnson was there, too. Perhaps in attendance were those who helped leak onto the internets blueprints for nuclear weapons (in Arabic, no less.)

Maybe BillO -- otherwise known as the Non-Partisan "Aribter of Upstanding Political Discourse" -- will launch a full-scale outrage campaign and demand answers & accountability. Stay tuned...
