It's The Vogue...

So Strike A Pose:
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' liaison with the White House will refuse to answer questions at upcoming Senate hearings about the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, citing her Fifth Amendment protection against self-incrimination, her lawyer says.

"I have decided to follow by lawyer's advice and respectfully invoke my constitutional right," Monica Goodling, Gonzales' counsel and White House liaison, said in a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
...
John Dowd, the lawyer for Gonzales counsel Monica Goodling, who plans to take the Fifth, suggested in a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (news, bio, voting record), D-Vt., that the Democrat-led panel has laid what amounts to a perjury trap for his client.

But GOSH, what in the world IS a 'perjury trap'??? I mean, let us assume that one were merely following orders, then IF Congress asks any hard questions, then one merely asserts the Divine Right Of The High Priesthood...

ah yes... and to think those Liberals were going to Clean Up The White House...

But you got to respect the Post-Surrealist World where 'say a truthful, and get arrested for committing one's Special Little Crime....'

Hey kids, is it time to get out the Old Group W Bench, where they put you if....
