Now I understand why the corporate media is so reluctant to cover the Egyptian demonstrations!

And politically, the Republicans are left holding their dicks in their hands. As to what it means to the rest of us, I haven’t a clue. People are too busy crowing over what a brilliant strategy it is!

UPDATE: Some perspective here.

The bag man

The fact that they’ve picked Louie Freeh proves they don’t want a real investigation. In this case, he will find whatever BP wants him to find:

(Reuters) – Former FBI Director Louis Freeh will investigate possible misconduct by a lawyer involved in making payments to settle claims by people and businesses affected by the BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, the judge in the spill damages case said on Tuesday.

Freeh, who recently stepped down as trustee for collapsed brokerage MF Global Holdings Ltd and previously led an internal investigation into the Penn State University sex abuse scandal, was named a “special master” by Judge Carl Barbier, who is hearing the civil case over the spill in New Orleans federal court.

BP had called for an independent inquiry into an allegation that a lawyer working for the administrator of the payments had referred claims to a New Orleans law firm in exchange for a share of subsequent settlement payments.
