The President lied and massaged the truth to get us into a counterproductive damn fool war. Your reaction? USA! USA!
Your government may be spying on you without warrant in violation of the Constitution. Your reaction? Meh.
The Attorney General, the man who is supposed to uphold the law of this land, breaks the law and then lies and conveniently forgets things he knew yesterday. Your reaction? Same old, same old.
Possibility of voter fraud? Your reaction? Aw, that’s all in the past.
But let some Senator tap the foot of a police officer in a public bathroom and all of a sudden it’s 24/7 CNN coverage and outrage and OMG what a gay hypocrite! String him up! String him up!
That is not to say that Sen Craig isn’t a gay hypocrite but, damn, if this is what it takes to get the populace riled (along with Foley’s e-mail gayness) then you deserve the government you have.
