Now THERE'S irony.
With respect to the whole U.S. port management outsourcing dust-up, it's more than a little amusing to note that the same GOPers who are turning on the White House and demanding that their concerns be heard are, for the most part, the same hypocritical wanks who were adamant -- adamant, I tell you -- that Congress had absolutely no authority to second-guess the administration on the matter of domestic spying and that presidential power gave Bush all the authority he needed to do whatever he wanted, Congress or no Congress.
So I ask you -- are these people stupid, or do they just have embarrassingly short memories? No, wait ... I don't really want to know after all. Sorry I asked.
NOT SURPRISINGLY, Glenn Greenwald makes much the same point here, albeit far more eloquently.
