Wait, I've Heard This One Before...
I was reading about the Bush Administration Scandal du jour (Wolfowitz) and thinking about how much sillier Attorney General Alberto Gonazales and the rest of the administration sound every day as they come up with more and more excuses, each one lamer than the last-- missing emails is the latest (Holy Rosemary Woods, Batman!).
It occurred to me I've heard this sad litany before. Unfortunately I couldn't find the appropriate clip among the Blues Brothers snippets on Youtube, so this'll have to do.
"I ran out of gas. I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! It wasn't my fault, I swear to god!"
