Speaking Too Soon on Spector

Just moments after my last post, Senate Judiciary Committee Arlen Spector and his Republican colleagues on the panel declared that they would not for the time being subpoena any telephone company executives over the sharing of private phone-call records with the government. Apparently, Commitee Republicans agreed to hold off on the subpoenas in exchange for a White House promise to keep an open mind about pending legislation involving the National Security Agency and its domestic surveillance programs. The "deal," such that it is, promptly caused Committee Democrats to howl in anger and frustration.

There is only one word for the antics of the GOP Judiciary Committee sell-outs and the privacy-invading White House dealmakers.... shameless.

Monumentally, criminally, ruthlessly shameless.

That's the Snarlin' Arlen I've come to know. When I was growing up my family had a dog like Arlen - he'd bark and snarl and run right at strangers he didn't like. The ones who ran away he chased. The ones who took a step in his direction got to watch him running back toward the house.

to watch a bunch of frat boyz shuck a country and have the

intelligentsia think that's the way things should be...

I have some thoughts that maybe the president, isn't a nice person, and doesn't really care about the United States people.

hoor george?

well, it seems to me that such

a shameless political ploy to use stupid people...

the gay marriage thing...

that it
would be addressed as that on national television and by the media....

does the president really have homophobia or is he just

a user?

saying that a few times publically or when anyone brings the issue up would be the same thing as

addressing the truth of the situation...

he could care less,

just like he could care less about America,

it's about what he can get, he's the Used Car Salesman of the Elite....

it's all about his needs....f-uck yours.


I love people that lie as a way of life

it's so much fun to help them feel their own pain...

that's what I want, the president and his people to feel the pain of their lies directly, physically, viscerally and in direct accordance with the deaths, injuries, and familial unhappiness that they cause...

thanks .

and did the President fire who was responsible for the Valerie Plame leak? or is he just a shameless

want to play spanky? I got a few minutes.

the essential question is,

does the president really have homophobia or is he just

a user?

or is he a J. Edgar Hoover,

a man who likes to have his small, boy-like manparts sniffed by powerfull men...in high places...on a regular basis?

a man who uses his public appearances of being strongly against gay people, as a way of hiding his private fetish to have his fetishes kept private, about liking to have his small, boyish manparts sniffed?

gotta be one of the two right?
