Quote of the Day
"You know, on the Internet there's an acronym that's used to apply to situations like this. It's called 'STFU.' I don't think I can say that on the air, but I think you know what that means."
-- Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida on Hardball last night, responding to Dick Cheney's accusation that President Obama gave "aid and comfort to the enemy" by taking time to analyze the situation before committing more troops to Afghanistan
I realize it's not even worth pointing out anymore because by now any amount of shameless, bald-faced hypocrisy from the assholes on the right is as predictable as the sun coming up in the morning, but isn't Cheney the exact same guy who spent almost eight years sternly warning that criticizing the president during a time of war was -- wait for it -- "giving aid and comfort to the enemy" (the definition of treason, incidentally)? And more than that, who gives a fuck what Cheney's opinion is on anything? I've said it before but it bears repeating: A) he's a private citizen now, one stripped of all political authority, and B) he belongs up against a wall out behind the Hague wearing a blindfold and being asked if he'd like a cigarette.
