Excuse me

while I laugh myself stupid over this:

"America is deeply concerned about the plight of political prisoners in this region, as well as democratic activists who are intimidated or repressed, newspapers and civil society organizations that are shut down and dissidents whose voices are stifled," Bush said.

"I call on all nations in this region to release their prisoners of conscience, open up their political debate and trust their people to chart their future," Bush said. (ital. mine)

{read the rest here}

Where is President Dubya and what did you do with him????? (and would you mind keeping him? Thanks).

That sound you hear is the world choking with laughter.

Bush lecturing Arab leaders on human rights, civil rights, political debate? Oh, please, This is the Decider who has decided the Constitution does not apply to him, his office or his minions. This is the party leader whose party is insinuating a Democratic candidate might not be a god enough patriot (Obama) and yet has approved a Patriot Act that would strip citizens of their citizenship if the White House sees fit.

This is the person lecturing the leadership of the Arab world.

This is the American president who:
- would suspend habeus corpus
- allows war crimes and crime against humanity to be committed in our name
- permits extraordinary rendition
- has allowed 1,000's of people- citizens, permanent residents, etc. to disappear into the black sites set up after 9/11
- invaded and destroyed one country with no provocation
- is working tirelessly to create a pretext to do the same to another

Excuse me while I laugh myself stupid.

It's the only alternative I can think of to crawling off in shame, burning my passport, and weeping for what a pathetic mess we have become.
