Update from inside the bubble

Bush is angry that his good friend Gonzo was forced to step down:

After months of standing by his top prosecutor and "close friend," Bush spoke briefly in Texas to praise Gonzales, saying the attorney general endured "unfair treatment that has created harmful distraction at the Justice Department."

Bush said it's "sad that we live in a time when a talented and honorable person" is impeded "from doing important work."

Unless the important work he's referring to is shielding Rove and Bush from the law, lying to Congress, and politicizing prosecutions, none of this has anything to do with reality. But inside the bubble, the problem isn't the rampant lawbreaking, it's the news coverage of that rampant lawbreaking; that's causing the "distraction" that's so harmful to our country.

Blech. The sooner the whole crop is out, the better.
