6 Degrees of Casey Serin™ - Casey to Scooter Libby


Hey Kids,
Yes, I know you’ve been waiting on the edge of your seats for this week’s 6 Degrees of Casey Serin™ challenge and, yes, this is a rather easy one, but I just had to do it. Maybe I’ll try to think about considering another more difficult one later this weekend.
This Friday’s sweet™ challenge is Casey Serin to Scooter Libby.

WooHoo!!!
For those late to the party the 6 Degrees of Casey Serin to Paris Hilton, another prominent looser of the week, polls are still open.

First baby...

Ok the only vehicle Casey can afford to buy now, much less run, is a "scooter" - preferably the push along kind with solid rubber tyres...

ONE Degree Baby! Wooo hooo!

I'm going to have to capitulate on this one...I have no idea who Scooter Libby is.

Schnapps said...

Ok, ok I lied.

The first hit on Google for "Scooter Libby" was from the Salt Lake Tribune.

Nigel lives in Salt Lake City.

Nigel is one of Casey's supporterz.

Boo-ya!

Schnapps said...

Or how about this:

Scooter Libby lies to the government.

Casey lies to the government. And everyone else.

Schnapps said...

And in retrospect, I apologize for my Canadian-ness that left me bereft of the knowledge of Mr. Libby.

I do not apologize for the working two jobs for the past 5 week (3 more to go!) that also made me bereft of that knowledge.

::sigh::

Schnapps,
You live in Canada, right? Once the evil W. Bush admin came into power via broken chads and shit, the "government" has become a very, very vague concept around here. IMHO Scooter Libby had a complicit higher-up puppeteer - and while I think Scooter is an asshole and can't stand looking at his face much longer, I also tend to believe he was following orders from the dickheads above (another past 6 Degrees of Casey Serin game comes to mind)....

Schnapps,
I didn't refresh and see your last comment when posted. Not to get too annoyingly political on a Friday night, but the sad fact is that you probably know a hell of a lot more about Scooter Libby than the vast majority of Americans. Paris Hilton is far more interesting this week.
BTW, whenever I travel, people always seem to assume I’m either Canadian or German, but rarely American. While I’m proud not to seem like an American, I’ve never been able figure out how they came of with Canadian or German since I don’t have relatives in either country.

Yeah - read your email... understand... i'll write back!

Scooter Libby has committed numerous violations of Federal laws.

Casey Serin has committed numerous violations of Federal laws.

AUGH! I just lost a really long comment! Damn blogger.

In point form: yes, I am Canadian; we have our own issues; election here possibly this year due to a minority government (they usually only last a maximum of 18 months or so).

Etc. I had to google Scooter Libby to find out who he was; I remember the leaking of the CIA agent's name from the news. I didn't know it was he that leaked it.

I guarantee that dingleberry will get pardoned right before Dubya leaves office. It pisses me off just thinking about it. These assholes daily shove the "if you don't support the war, you don't support the troops" bullshit down our throats, meanwhile they're jeopardizing our own intelligence agents. I have never in my entire life been so disgusted with our government. Has this administration done anything right?

Akubi said...

Flailing,
Maybe that could be another trivia game. Each week there could be a different issue presented, i.e. Global Warming (sorry Karl, I refuse to use the term "Global Change" thanks anyway), the shrinking middle class, etc. and the winner has to come up with one positive change the Bush Administration has made.

Mort said...

Scooter outed a Plame mate. KC is a Flame bait.

Ogg the Caveman said...

This one will be easier if they end up in the same prison. Nevertheless...

Scooter's last name is Libby.
Casey gets a bit fibby.

Anyone who takes 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon seriously is no doubt reeling in horror.

Time Travel Guy( was lurker) said...

Bubba knows them both (biblical sense)

Oh wait has that happened yet?

Schnapps said...

Y'all aren't even TRYING.

::sigh::

I spend hours scraping wallpaper and end up smelling like fabric softener and I find this?

Gah.

1. In 1996 Libby published a novel entitled The Apprentice. It concerns a group of travelers stranded in northern Japan in the winter of 1903 during a smallpox epidemic. After Libby's grand jury indictment, his publisher (St. Martin's Press [Griffin]) reprinted the novel, described as "an everyday tale of bestiality and paedophilia in 1903 Japan...[and] packed with sexual perversion, dwelling on prepubescent girls and their training as prostitutes": "One passage describes a girl being thrown into a cage 'with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons....They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest. Groups of men paid to watch.'" (from wikipedia)
2. Casey Serin also has a publishing deal for a book that no one will ever want to read.

Schnapps,
I rather like the limerick-like element of this week's entries even if as Ogg writes "Anyone who takes 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon seriously is no doubt reeling in horror." This is 6 Degrees of Casey Serin where we keep it organic and write the rules as we're going.
Flailing, I don't know how I managed to miss The Apprentice, but I had to check Wikipedia to make sure you weren't making it up. Now that is worthy of further golden nuggest research...

Akubi said...

After the bear with a stick scene per New Yorker:

He asked if they should fuck the deer.

The answer, reader, is yes.

flailing forward said...

The quotes from the other Republican pundits' in that article are interesting. How funny would it be to read O'Reilly's erotic fiction? Anyway, I couldn't find anything on it, but I did find this stuff from a sexual harassment suit from 2004. There are four excerpts at the very bottom of this page (all link to The Smoking Gun). Holy cow, at least read the first one, what a freaking ignoramus! "The falafel thing"??? WTF?

Akubi said...

ROFL! Where the hell did the falafel come from? Was he confusing it with the loofah?
