Stranger Than Fiction

I think it's great that our short-bus media experts use the ludicrous narratives and crude revenge fantasies of 24 to circumscribe their positions on foreign policy in general, and torture in particular. Why not? After all, the country overall has been run like a particularly tragic episode of Silver Spoons the entire time.

Maybe it's just an especially ham-fisted attempt at network product cross-promotion, something to natter on about between American Idolt updates.

They're also as cowardly as only teenage dolts can be. Did you hear about that guy who likes his coffee black and bitter, just like civil rights activists? When caught with their pants down, they don't even have the courage of their convictions -- but rush to write contrite letters of apology, like mewling adolescents caught smoking pot behind the high-school's gym. So much for their fucking machismo. If only a Democrat would get really serious about investigating and prosecuting this misadministrations's abuses, you'd see them all shitting their pants in abjects fear. Well, everybody except maybe Vice-president Palpatine. That fucker has a lot of balls.

Oh yeah, that Schlozman cobag. It'll be interesting to see if Holder really goes after him, or if he's being leveraged as some sort of backroom bargaining chip, in which case, why?

I keep wondering, does it take a 90-seat majority in the Senate for the Dems to grow even one ball, much less a matching pair? I cannot understand why they are not in full salt-the-earth, Republitards-delenda-est mode.

Just kidding. Of course we get why they just go through the motions, yet manage to never accomplish anything substantial.
