WOW! Let’s celebrate! We’ve won! Left wing bloggers control Congress!
On second thought, what the hell does Dana Perino, White House Press Secretary, know about our left-wing fantasies? We’re left-wing bloggers. Perino has NO idea of what our real fantasies are … certainly we oppose torture, waterboarding, but then we also support impeachment, an end to the occupation of Iraq, maybe arrests and imprisonment of certain administration officials, and also universal health care, an end to the debt and mortgage crisis, an end to corporate control of America, and … much, much more. Remember John Lennon’s “Imagine”? – well, that’s a start.
Upon the Senate’s passage of the anti-waterboarding measure, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino accused the Democrats’ “left wing” of attempting to take control of the intelligence community:
They’ll have to ask themselves, ‘Do you trust the intelligence community more than you trust Democrats who are beholden to their left-wing?’ And that’s the debate that this country is going to have.
The White House Press Secretary then attacked Congress for holding the contempt of Congress vote instead of expanding Bush’s surveillance powers; she said:
The American people will find it baffling that on a day that House leaders are trying to put off passing critical legislation to keep us safer from the threat of foreign terrorists overseas, they are spending scarce time to become the first congress in history to bring contempt charges against a president’s chief of staff and lawyer. … The ‘people’s House’ should reflect the priorities of the American people, not the fantasies of left-wing bloggers.
