Glenn Greenwald hits it out of the park
Glenn Greenwald, over at Salon, is always a good read. Today's post on the abuses of the Dubya maladministration is just astounding (in all senses of the word). Just go read it (if you haven't already). Here's the depressing last paragraph:
At some point -- many, many years from now -- there will be some report issued by an executive agency or a Congressional Committee finally describing the nature of the illegal spying programs implemented by the Bush administration and detailing all of the abuses. And the same members of Congress who looked the other way and then voted to legalize these programs will express all kinds of outrage and surprise. If we vest unchecked powers in government officials to spy on Americans, they'll abuse those powers, all while falsely denying that they're doing so? Who could have known?I hope he's wrong; I hope the Democrats gain the presidency and an iron grip on Congress, and that the responsible people in the Democratic party (such as Russ Feingold) ignore any plaintive pleas by Republicans -- seeking to cover up the abuses of their party and their presnit -- for "bipartisanship", "civility", "letting sleeping dogs lie", and "can't we just move on?...". I hope they immediately plumb the depths of the Republican lawbreaking, string up any criminals they find (that haven't already been pardoned by Dubya), and show the Dubya maladministration for the authoritarian, lawless bunch it is, so that no one with more than two neurones to their name will ever trust these people near the yokes of power again.
