As long as the Bush administration scandals keep going the Bushed! segments on Countdown will keep rolling on. On Wednesday Keith Olbermann looked at Blackface-Gate, a scandal which involves the scrubbing of pictures from a government website of a DHS staffer who came to a department party in blackface.

Next up is the always hacktacular wingnut chickenhawk, Rep. Patrick McHenry, who is in hot water over trashing a U.S. security guard in Iraq, and now is being admonished by the Pentagon for posting a video on his website which disclosed specific details about his location within the Green Zone, making it easier for Iraqi militias to target the area.

Finally, the GAO released a report which revealed that federal employees had wasted millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars using government credit cards to fund lavish meals, parties, online dating subscriptions and...lingerie.
