George Bush: Hypocrite

I adore Glenn Greenwald. Read this. You’ll understand why.

Then send it to your representatives in Congress. And make them read it.

It sucks when your own past comes back to haunt you. In writing. Like, oh say, when your own Justice Department has argued that your current illegal FISA end-run was…erm…unnecessary because the Patriot Act had made things much easier to obtain warrants and such and to start pre-warrant surveillance, and that this was a reason to trash legislation that would have made the illegal conduct you’ve been doing all along (and continue to brazenly do after being caught, I might add)…erm…legal.

What a bunch of maroons. Don’t know about you guys, but I’m thinking Gen. Hayden won’t be doing any more pressers.

George Bush: lawbreaking asshat worst preznit ever hypocrite.

(Graphics love to Sooner Thought.)

NOTE: I’ll be a guest on The Majority Report on Air America Radio this evening at around 7:45 pm ET. If you don’t have an Air America station in your area, you can listen to the internet feed here. We’ll be discussing Alito.

UPDATE: Crooks and Liars has video up of Sen. Reid’s speech today. Blistering, and just what I needed today. Give ’em hell, Harry.
