...Bush puts his face right up to the fan and gets shitfaced.
And a lot of insane, shameless bullshitters have come up with all kinds of crazy garbage explaining why, now that Bill Clinton is no longer Preznit, the Preznit is above the law.
Sure, sure, it's horseshit! The Preznit could easily get a FISA warrant for nearly anything he wanted, but he couldn't be bothered, or didn't like the idea of having to ask a co-equal branch of the gubment for permission to do something.
Or, maybe he just didn't like the idea of a co-equal branch of gubment.
Sure, sure, if FISA needed to be amended, the Preznit could have easily done that, too, since on September 12th, the Congress--the totally Republican Congress--was willing to give Bush anything he wanted, including the creepy Patriot Act, War Powers without oversight, and a world record group hand job.
It's a grotesque lie, a criminal conspiracy by our War Preznit, and undoubtably an impeachable offense. I mean, don't even waste your time thinking about it. It's a no brainer. Take it for granted and then grind your teeth smooth over the horrendous, unethical, immoral louses the Red Staters have sent to Congress who are all going to look the other way, like they were a bunch of fawning aristocrats who just heard the Queen fart at the dinner table.
But I think everyone is missing the real significance of this story:
In Crawford, Texas, where Bush is spending the holidays, his spokesman, Trent Duffy, defended what he called a "limited program."
"This is not about monitoring phone calls designed to arrange Little League practice or what to bring to a potluck dinner," he told reporters. "These are designed to monitor calls from very bad people to very bad people who have a history of blowing up commuter trains, weddings, and churches."
And, sure, if Bush and his insane clown posse are so sure these people he's wiretapping without warrants have a history of blowing up trains, weddings, and churches, yes, the obvious question comes to mind:
"Why, Monkey Brain, are you putzing around with wiretaps at all, then? Why are you not getting warrants and about a bazillion federal agents and arresting these people??? You fucking retard."
If you know they have a history of blowing up people and trains and weddings and churches, why the fuck are you monitoring their phone calls? Who cares? What do you expect to find out? Something worse than blowing up a wedding? Do you think you can get them on a federal rap for ordering pizzas delivered to Cheney's house? What???
Well, of course, it's all bullshit. Bush has authorized thousands of illegal wiretaps. And, no, not all of those people--and I'd be surprised with this insanely, unbelievably incompetent crew that any of those people--have blown up weddings.
But whatever. That's not really what I want to post about.
What I want to post about is: once again, when things get ugly, where's Bush? Crawford. Sometimes he flees to Camp David. Sometimes he flees the country. Shit, once he went to Africa for like four days.
Africa. And it was like the fastest tour of Africa since the first white man set foot on the continent. He hit like seven countries in four days, and only twice got out of the limo.
But, as always, Bush gets out of town. When things get rough.
And, sure, sure, I know it's Christmas--or as the secular, Christmas hating Bush's like to say: the Holidays. Course, on the other hand, this story didn't break--for over a year--until the holidays, at the request of the White House.
I don't have the time or the resources--also, I don't care--but if someone did, they should go back through our "recovered" alcoholic's preznancy and match up Bush's trips out of town--where a man, with a drinking problem, might be able to get howling drunk out of the spotlight of Washington--with Bush's political problems.
I think they'll match up pretty evenly.
