Description

Meanwhile, though, I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind us governing the way you did these last eight years. I’m sure you won’t complain if we employ the same tactics and analogous policies, since you not only didn’t complain when Little Boots did these things, you worshiped him for it. Fair enough? How’s that shoe fitting on the other foot? Here’s how it’s gonna be from now on: First of all, that Cheney dude is goin’ to Gitmo. Let’s get that straight right from the top. No lawyers, no habeas, no prissy Bill of Rights niceties, no Geneva. Lots of waterboarding, though. Second, Lil’ Bushiekins is going along for the ride too. He’s gonna (continue to) be Cheney’s boy, if you get my drift. And we’re not just talkin’ about eight years here, either. I know y’all won’t mind if we start polarizing the country from now on, too. You’re either with us or you’re with the evildoing really bad people (however we choose to histrionically label them – terrorists, communists, churchgoers, whatever). Limbaugh and O’Reilly and Hannity and them cats – if they criticize the president, they’re not loyal Americans. They’re not patriots. They’re supporting America’s enemies. They’re traitors. Same with Republican politicans. You trash-talk the president, we’ll make sure it is understood that you’re undermining our soldiers. During wartime. And that’s just the beginning. We’re gonna politicize everything, including national security. We’re gonna turn every national issue into a way to benefit our politics, and to humiliate and destroy Republicans. We’ll make you vote for stupid wars based on phony pretexts if we feel like it, and tell voters that you can’t be trusted with American national security if you don’t.
