YOU OUGHTA BE IN PICTURES
The impeached Clinton will never change. That portrait reminds me of this infamous trashy stunt.
OFFICIAL PORTRAIT UNVEILED: A former Clinton aide, who saw the painting last night but did not want to be identified, said, "I don't get the whole hands-on-the-hip thing. I don't know what it's supposed to convey."
Is this guy dense? Slick is flaunting his wares, he's advertising his goods, he's looking for bimbos. As in: Have blue pills, will yadda yadda yadda. Duh!
Whereas Slick's pix will be everywhere, I'm still looking for a recent one of Mary McCarthy. However, Wonkette found one ... HA HA HA !!!
I continue to ask, where are the shots of Mary McCarthy taken by photogs hounding her 24/7? Where is the footage showing reporters crowding her car, waiting outside her windows, setting up camp in front of her house? The most recent picture we have the self-admitted CIA leaker, Mary McCarthy, dates back to 2003, and that was grabbed from video.
Better minds than mine are keeping track of this story. So, to keep you up to speed ...
8 Spook86 on The McCarthy File: As we noted previously, the career of fired CIA agent Mary McCarthy apparently suffered a major setback with the end of the Clinton Administration. Until that time, Ms. McCarthy had been on the intelligence equivalent of the career fast-track; in barely a decade, she climbed from obscure analyst at CIA Headquarters to the National Intelligence Officer for Warning (NIO), a feat of bureaucratic advancement that it simply stunning.
The former NIO's planned retirement might also have been intended to provide legal cover for the disclosure effort. The leaker (or perhaps, leakers) apparently reasoned that the agency would be reluctant to prosecute her after she left Langley, to avoid the possible compromise of other intel programs and sources.
Did Mary McCarthy have any help? That's an intriguging question. Here are some thoughts that suggest she might not be the only leaker. [emphasis mine]
8 Rick Moran, at Right Wing Nut House, notes that TY COBB AIN’T NO BENCHWARMER: What is significant about Mr. Cobb is that he defended some of the highest profile criminals in the Clinton Administration including cabinet officers, a White House staffer, and a former Senator. … How has a woman who may not be in any danger at all from prosecution been able to procure the services of a $750 per hour attorney like Ty Cobb whose client list reads like the attendees at a Bill Clinton private Sybaris party?
8 MacRanger discusses Damage Control 101: The first thing a defense attorney tries to do when they begin defense of their client is to attempt to get the confession thrown out. … Mary Loose Lips now denies having confessed. Which is a lie - she did, and signed the appropriate statement to the effect. You don't fire career government employees without a written confession of their wrong doing.
When you rob a bank it doesn't matter if you took one-dollar or two=hundred thousand - you broke the law, you go to jail. Whether you wispered in Dana's ear, wrote it on a cocktail napkin, it's still treason.
8 AJ Strata discusses McCarthy Lawyers Up: McCarthy’s lawyer could be playing a dangerous game. If she is talking to investigators, he better not be out there playing PR games right now. Laying low and cooperating is the best plan if she admitted to exposing classified material. A public push back could paint a target on her she will forever regret.
[N]owhere in the CIA statement was McCarthy exonerated - just the opposite. And the sources to this story seem to be in the CYA mode - which is bad for McCarthy. If she is even once tries to cover for someone else her leniancy deals are off.
The PR effort is a full court press, likely to backfire on poor McCarthy, unless this is part of the sting - get her cohorts to expose themselves through public demonstrations of support.
In the meantime, Where's Mary?
