Imploding In Slow Motion: Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rove, Bush -- And A Tumbling House Of Cards

It hasn't been a very good day for blood-soaked warmongers.

Paul Wolfowitz is leaving his post as President of the World Bank -- but he's getting a $400,000 severance package.

Dick Cheney and Karl Rove are claiming immunity from prosecution over the Plame-Wilson leak, saying that whatever they said amongst themselves and to reporters was part of a "policy dispute".

And George Bush has refused to answer questions about whether he sent his Chief of Staff and his future Attorney General to the bedside of former Attorney General John Ashcroft when Ashcroft was hospitalized, in order to try to persuade him to authorize the warrantless wiretapping program which Ashcroft had previously declared illegal.

So ... it finally looks as though the blood-soaked warmongers are imploding.

It's not free-fall speed ... but I'll take it.

And kudos to my Australian friend Gandhi, without whom I could never keep up with this stuff!
