Arrivederci! Abu Gonzo. Be seein' you in 'court' for Contempt of Congress, little man.
Auf Weidersehen! Ol' Smelly Turdblossum. Weidersehen? NICHTS!!! Mögen wir dich nie überhaupt wieder sehen!
Au Revoir! Tony Snowjob. I think you were the nicest of the lot, but your job did not change much from your previous employment, did it. No wonder the paycut hurt.
I hear the kegger party's in Crawford.
He has just only achieved the level of clinical 'homosexual' lost in the deep closet of his own making.
Pathetic, yet deserving of all the scorn heaped upon him by those compassionate conservative Republican "friends" of his.
Then there is this Craigian quote on Meet the Press in 1999 during those troubled yet oh so innocent times of yore:
SEN. CRAIG: It’s a, “Bad boy, Bill Clinton. You’re a naughty boy.” The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad boy, a naughty boy. I’m going to speak out for the citizens of my state, who in the majority think that Bill Clinton is probably even a nasty, bad, naughty boy.

Rich, talented, good-looking . . . just not the sharpest knife in the drawer, hey Mikey? And . . . oh yeah . . . he's a sadistic, dog-abusing bastard, too. Vick, you prick, I hope you enjoy your new "cage." And I hear the "cuisine" at The Big House is worse than dog meat . . . more like dog shit. Bon appetit!!!

The candidate who seems to be adopting (Karl Rove's) his style and methods the most so far? Hillary Rodham Clinton.
At least that's what Nicolle Wallace thinks. The former Bush White House communications director, who worked closely with Rove, said that Clinton "has almost operationalized the whole idea of turning your weakness into strength, message discipline that is almost pathological -- she does not get off message for any reason -- and never skipping an opportunity to exploit her opponent's weaknesses.
She pops up everywhere, doesn't she. Where Nicole goes, really bad things tend to happen.

Got two more "In Spike" which means in bud. One of which is its second bloom since I bought it. That means I'm doing something right.

The key provision of S.1927 is new section 105A of FISA (see page 2), which categorically excludes from FISA's requirements any and all "surveillance directed at a person reasonably believed to be located outside of the United States.
"For surveillance to come within this exemption, there is no requirement that it be conducted outside the U.S.; no requirement that the person at whom it is "directed" be an agent of a foreign power or in any way connected to terrorism or other wrongdoing; and no requirement that the surveillance does not also encompass communications of U.S. persons. Indeed, if read literally, it would exclude from FISA any surveillance that is in some sense "directed" both at persons overseas and at persons in the U.S.
"CRASH!!!" goes the constitution.
Does anyone remember this:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
Can you hear me now?
And we all know we can trust him and Gonzo and his politicized Justice goons to use discretion and limit his extra-constitutional FISA activities to terrorism investigations.
and "they hate us for our freedoms".
What's left of them anyway.
