Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

The usual republican hypocrite

“If laws were broken, he must be held to account for what he did.”

– Scott McClellan, the presidential press secretary
Unfortunately, speaking about Jack Abramoff

I guess others need to obey the law, at least when they get caught.

Maybe someone should point him at Article 1, Section 9 of the United States Constitution (re habeus corpus), Article VI of the US Constitution, the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution , or the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Here’s hoping to make 2006 a year of indictments and impeachments:

  • Tom DeLay
  • Bill Frist
  • Dennis Hastert
  • Bob Ney
  • Karl Rove
  • Rick Santorum (my own senator, to use the word loosely)
  • Bob Taft
  • Ernie Fletcher
  • Tom Noe
  • John Bolton
  • Dick Cheney
  • And a host of others I’ve forgotten

You can’t indict a sitting president. The only option is impeachment, but in the classic example of “It’s not what you’ve done, it’s who your friends are.” I’m sure the scoundrels who control the house of representatives will never consider that, no matter how egregious his acts. (Unless, of course, one thing happens).
