Fantasies? Hardly

Friday, February 15, 2008

Ouch. Looks like the Democratic Congress jabbed at the cage alittle too hard, because there was lots of squawking and poo-flinging coming from the direction of the White House podium.

After the Senate banned waterboarding yesterday, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino claimed the “left wing” was trying to overtake 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.

Perino also attacked Congress for holding a contempt of Congress vote on White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers instead of expanding Bush’s surveillance powers:

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.

Dana Perino must be a conservative, because her imagination could use a healthy dose of performance-enhancing steroids. If she thinks that stopping illegal (and impeachable) spying by the Bushistas is a "fantasy of left-wing bloggers" - hooooo lawdy, as my friends in the South like to say. I could think of much more exciting things I'd like to see them spend their precious time on in Washington. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act, for example.

Where's Dana's outrage on that one, HUH? Doesn't she know that terrorist marmots lurk in the shadows, awaiting the coordinated moment when they storm the world en masse?
