Best Buds Forever

Some former Best Buds.
Two Democratic Senators continue to find their actions under scrutiny for receiving special low interest loans from their former best buds at the Countrywide Financial Corp.

Sen. Chris Dodd (D. - Hell)and Sen. Kent Conrad (D. - Oblivion) both denied knowing that they were getting preferential treatment at special VIP loan rates, but a former bank official had something else to say about that.

Robert Feinberg, who worked in the VIP section of Countrywide Financial Corp., testified about the loan terms before the Senate Ethics Committee, and provided the same information in an interview with Republican investigators of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. He could be prosecuted for making false statements.

Both senators have said that at the time the mortgages were being written they didn't know they were getting unique deals from Countrywide, a company that lost billions of dollars on bad loans and since has been purchased by Bank of America.

Dodd and Conrad participated in a program known as "Friends of Angelo", named after Angelo Mozilo, the former CEO of Countrywide. Friends of Angelo got special treatment because they were, ahhhh, special.

I would like them to become familar with another program called "Friends of Bubba." Bubba is currently doing 12 to 17 at Joliet for male rape. Bubba very much wants to be their new Best Buddy. Especially during Happy Happy Good Fun Shower Time. Bubba wll bring the soap.

New Best Buds Forever.
Sgt. Crowley, Skippy Gates and Obongo the Circus President are soon to be BBF. This Thursday they will all get together and sit around the White House picnic table to share manly talk over brewskis.

Gibbs: "I wouldn't call it the beer fest. . . I know I'm usually the one who makes the jokes in here. I think it's a fairly serious picture."

It's hard to know what's the standard for serious though. Minutes earlier Gibbs had made the scheduled 6 p.m. gathering sound like mostly a photo-op.

It's to be held at "the picnic table out back" of the White House, weather permitting. "There's no formal agenda other than cold beer," he's quipped. Gibbs also said the idea was for the men (Gates and Obama already are friends) to "get to know each other and step back from the circumstances that brought everybody together."

How in the world any intelligent, self-respecting cop can sit down with these two posers is beyond me. Sgt. Crowley must realize that this is not an opportunity for him to share the richness of his law enforcement experiences. Obongo and his long time BBF Skippy will use this any way they can to their own advantage. Obongo is still looking for pay back after being forced to pay all those Cambridge PD parking tickets. He'll probably have the Capitol Police bag Crowley for DWI as he drives away.

This is nothing but a cover-your-ass-we-screwed-up-big-time-and-pissed-off-a-whole-buncha-honkys Chicago Fest. Don't look for Ooompah bands. Whatever comes out of this exercise in futility will do nothing to further the interests of public safety or German drinking music.



Current events make me want to stay in my garden and grow a perfect _________ (fill in the blank).
