From this morning's Chimpy McChimpster press conference and media stroke session:
Normally, no wiretapping is permitted in the United States without a court warrant. But Bush said he approved the action without such orders "because it enables us to move faster and quicker."
"We've got to be fast on our feet," he said.
Hmmmm ... using this logic, I think that all Republican politicians in the United States should be arrested and executed. I mean, it's possible they're not criminally corrupt but we have to nip this whole corruption thing in the bud, know what I mean? Gotta be fast on our feet, see what I'm saying? Getting actual evidence just slows down the process, and we can't have that, can we?
President George W. Bush brushed aside criticism over his decision to conduct domestic surveillance without court warrants Monday and said he will keep it up "for so long as the nation faces the continuing threat of an enemy that wants to kill American citizens."
You don't need an enemy for that, George -- you're doing just fine all on your own. 2,100 and counting, last time I looked.
