And Chairman Ann Has Her Take On The Matter As Was To Be Expected...

"...Which brings me to this week's scandal about No Such Agency spying on "Americans." I have difficulty ginning up much interest in this story inasmuch as I think the government should be spying on all Arabs, engaging in torture as a televised spectator sport, dropping daisy cutters wantonly throughout the Middle East, and sending liberals to Guantanamo.

But if we must engage in a national debate on half-measures: After 9/11, any president who was not spying on people calling phone numbers associated with terrorists should be impeached for being an inept commander in chief. With a huge gaping hole in lower Manhattan, I'm not sure why we have to keep reminding people, but we are at war. (Perhaps it's because of the media blackout on images of the 9/11 attack. We're not allowed to see those because seeing planes plowing into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon might make us feel angry and jingoistic.)

Among the things that war entails are: killing people (sometimes innocent), destroying buildings (sometimes innocent) and spying on people (sometimes innocent). That is why war is a bad thing.

But once a war starts, it is going to be finished one way or another, and I have a preference for it coming out one way rather than the other."

Ah, but silly, silly Ann; we didn't beg the UN for help in NEGOTIATING with the terrorists, as Willy or Mr. Peanut would have done. Wait a second. Isn't that what McCain is doing? Pushing through a treaty with terrorists the world over? Kill us and we'll still be nice to you? Free cotton candy if you promise not to do it no more and even if you do we'll remain all giggles and grins?

Give Ann's rant a look see if you'd be so kind, but wanna know the bottom line here?

They haven't hit us again. George W. Bush did what was necessary to protect us, and so far it's worked just fine thank you. When Willy was in charge the bad guys let the dust settle then hit us even harder.
