Think Progress has the video:
HOST:Iâ€™m curious, have you ever googled anybody? Do you use Google?
BUSH: Occasionally. One of the things Iâ€™ve used on the Google is to pull up maps. Itâ€™s very interesting to see â€” Iâ€™ve forgot the name of the program â€” but you get the satellite, and you can â€” like, I kinda like to look at the ranch. It remind me of where I wanna be sometimes.

Tony Snow said this morning on CNN’s American Morning that “I hate to tell you, but itâ€™s not always pretty up there on Capitol Hill. And there have been other scandals, as you know, that have been more than simply naughty e-mails.â€ – That is the White House response? Naughty e-mails? We’re talking about a sexual predator in the U.S. Congress, not just some ‘naughty e-mails.” Think Progress has the video.

I can’t wait to see this interview when it airs tomorrow morning on Fox News Sunday. It’s obvious from reading the transcript that it’s going to be President Clinton at his best and possibly angriest.
I guess that’s what happens when you take the risk and go on Faux News.

From Think Progress:
Bush’s term is winding down and he is now officially a lame duck. We know this because right-wingers are already talking about a pardon for Scooter Libby, the VP’s chief of staff who was indicted for lying under oath to a federal grand jury. A pardon could come sooner rather than later.
One attorney familiar with the Plame case said Bush might find that it is in his interest to pardon Libby sooner rather than later.
A pardon before the trial could could cut off the disclosures and spare Vice President Dick Cheney from testifying as Fitzgerald’s witness about Libby, his former chief of staff.
But the timing of a pardon, the attorney suggested, likely would depend on the outcome of the midterm elections.
If Republicans retain control of Congress, Bush could act swiftly. But if Democrats win control of the House or Senate, Bush might wait, and use Libby’s trial as an excuse not to cooperate with any congressional investigations into the leak.
The counterargument to a pardon this year or next, however, is that it would be a political bombshell and distract from Bush’s agenda.
DiGenova predicted that Bush, like other presidents, would issue controversial pardons on his last day in office.
