Has anyone else noticed ....

.... that all you have to do is say "Al Qaeda" and you can do pretty much whatever you want? Well, at least if you're someone official, that is.
"Let us not become the evil we deplore."
Please don't take my lack of commentary to mean that I don't have any. Quite the contrary, I have to many thoughts on this to even attempt. Suffice it to say that most of them are based in frustration, aggravation, and, in many cases, pure disgust at the disconnects. And, ultimately, all thoughts end up in the general ballpark of "No wonder the world hates us."

Bingo.
What does it take to get impeached in this town? (I live in Washington, DC suburbs.) Apparently "a date" with an intern.
Favorite bumper sticker:

A friend pointed that expression out to me once, yes, in reference to the current administration. You become what you fear. You fear being overtaken (in power, popularity, manpower or firepower) by an enemy, which then becomes bigger in your own myopic vision, and to 'fight back' you play dirty just as you imagine THEM doing.

But I think this has infected society at large. For example, yesterday a man was SURE I was going to report him for kidnapping a girl who may or may not have been his (I still wonder...) and instead of slinking away he harassed me - so I DID call the police. Then he called the cops on ME, to drive the point home further. Who looks worse now?

Frightening all around.

Although .... depending on how long you've lived in/near the District .... getting busted for doing crack when you thought you were only there to hook up with a prostitute only sends you to jail. Then, you're free to campaign from your cell and get yourself elected to City Council by booting one of your biggest supporters.

Let's see, what do we have here then ....

Convicted for crack with a prostitute: conviction and 6 months time

Oral Sex with an intern: impeachment, butt of jokes

Wiretapping, torture, illegal detention, and who knows what else: Priceless.
