Quid pro quo

Since BushCo now has unprecedented expanded powers to spy on citizens of the United States of America, I hereby propose that the citizens of the United States of American demand the same powers to oversee the activities of BushCo. In particular, I would like to monitor communications between the White House and the administration of Pakistan’s President, Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Because I suspect that American lives might be at stake.

Musharraf has been playing both sides against the middle for quite some time now, telling the US that he is doing everything he can to roust terrorists (including a certain someone responsible for the deaths of 3000 Americans), while at the same time assuring anti-American militants in his country that he is actually not helping the US at all. Unfortunately, the truth is much closer to the latter than the former. And Resident Bush, The Decider, has decided to not only let him get away with it, but to actually support the two-faced, coup-lovin’ slyboots.

Why would BushCo so unfailingly support Musharraf? Good question, and one on which I hope the White House wiretaps will shed some light. Meanwhile, Musharraf continues to ass-kiss his benefactor by 1) canceling a trip to Afghanistan to attend a meeting on curbing cross-border terrorist movements, and 2) threatening to declare a state of emergency in Pakistan based on some remarks by a Democratic presidential candidate.

Yes, in a move that is clearly a big, gooey valentine to BushCo, Musharraf is pretending to be so alarmed by Sen. Barack Obama’s hypothetical remarks regarding Americans entering Pakistan to deal with terrorist targets, that he is asking us to believe that he not only doesn’t understand the difference between the president, and a presidential candidate, but that he also can’t comprehend that Obama is about as far, politically, from his buddy Bush as two mainstream politicians can get.

Now BushCo gets to release statements in which they will cast themselves as a moderate force and the voice of reason, and talk about how ignorant the Democrats are on issues of terrorism & foreign policy. And the talking heads will swallow it hook, line, and sinker, never-minding Republican presidential candidate Tancredo’s recent remarks about bombing Islamic holy sites, which are at least an order of magnitude more idiotic than Obama’s could ever be construed to be.

And Hilary will move up in the polls.

If you would like to support my call for warrantless wiretaps of the White House, I suggest you contact one or more of the following Senate Democrats who voted for that piece-of-shit bill:

Bayh (D-IN)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Conrad (D-ND)
Feinstein (D-CA) – the bitch strikes again!
Inouye (D-HI)
Klobuchar (D-MN)
Landrieu (D-LA)
Lincoln (D-AR)
McCaskill (D-MO)
Mikulski (D-MD)
Nelson (D-FL)
Nelson (D-NE)
Pryor (D-AR)
Salazar (D-CO)
Webb (D-VA)

Oh, and let’s not forget Lieberman (ID-CT).

Also, you could contact one of the 41 Democratic members of the House who bent over their desks and took it up the ass on this one.

It's those 41 that piss me off. They are true fuckfaces.

Grant, I think the whole "fuckfaces" thing is really working out for you. I should have put more fuckfaces in this post, clearly.

I actually called both my senators and emailed my rep earlier this week before I read this. I wanted them to know that even though they didn't vote for it, the Democrats allowed it and so they are in it together as seen by peons such as myself. On top of that the impression is they did it because... you know... so they could not have their vacation interrupted by the awesome powers that the president wields to determine who can take time off and when.
