White Plains - (Rotters): "I lied to save Bush and Cheney's filthy ass," former 9/11 NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik told a Washington federal court today.
"Like, what else is new?" prosecution counsel was heard retorting sotto voce as George W Bush's 2004 pic for Homeland Insecurity Chief stood in the dock.
Lifting reporting restrictions Judge Stephen Robinson commented that the ex-NYC police chief was a 'toxic cocktail of self-righteousness and arrogance'.
"Sure, your honor," Kerik replied, "qualities absolutely necessary to run law enforcement during the Bush years."
Kerik faces up to 33 months in the slammer for tax dodging, perverting the course of justice and associated GOP arse-licking.
Dick Cheney and George W Bush are still sitting pretty and riding high, luxuriating in the sure-bet that Barack Obama cannot touch their badass chicanery without bombing himself.
