Chimpy Sez: I Want Some More
Preznit McFlightsuit couldn’t possibly be happy with the Democratic Congress’s capitulation — after all, why be happy when you get your way after only one week of terror blackmail? Another sad lesson for our Congress: bullies always come back with another sucker punch when you’re not looking. Blackmailers always ask for more when their demands are met. In this case, right away.
When Congress returns in September the Intelligence committees and leaders in both parties will need to complete work on the comprehensive reforms requested by Director McConnell, including the important issue of providing meaningful liability protection to those who are alleged to have assisted our Nation following the attacks of September 11, 2001.
Jack Balkin points out that the Preznit can’t actually say the telecoms “helped us stay safe:” that would be admitting they did something illegal. Which they desperately need immunizing for. If they did it. Which they are alleged to have done.
Won’t Dianne Feinstein simply print up a bunch of laminated, photo-ID Get Out of Jail Free cards to distribute to the entire Bush Administration and their corporate crony enablers? I’m sure she’s not busy this August.
