You know that Flamin’-Hot-Cheetos-drive-me-crazy story from NPR? The one that was an awesome internet meme a while ago? Well, a similar burst of temporary insanity appears to have afflicted Sen. Arlen Specter, who recently called the FISA telecom-immunity provisions that he voted for twice a “festering wound.”
Absent an explanation, the ACLU is noticing the bright-red Cheeto dust of hypocrisy on Specter’s fingers. Here’s Amanda Simon writing an open letter to Specter on the ACLU’s blog:
We are perplexed but also gladdened at your recent change of heart. And may we share this exciting news with you? It is within your very power to reverse this provision which so offends you. You, sir, can begin to heal this festering wound!
Seriously, Senator. Put the Cheeto bag down. You’re a little hyper at the moment. We can solve this.
