LOLcons: i spy wif my lil eye

i spy wif my lil eye (AFP/File/Jim Watson) FINISH THE SAYING CONTEST: What does Mike McConnell spy with his little eye? Is it the continued erosion of the personal freedoms of Americans? The desperate clutching at a program that has yet to produce reliable intelligence? A toupée that will look good with a misplaced sense of relevance and a self-satisfied grin? You retort, we decide!

Justice? My ass.

José, can u c...? please allow me to turn your attention to a very worthy read by Scarecrow. there’s no way in hell i’d ever try to paint Padilla as a hero, so don’t misinterpret this image. on the other hand, as Scarecrow so eloquently points out, there’s no way in hell you can objectively interpret what our government did in this case as “justice”.

and that’s really all i’m saying.

although of course the pun and the alliteration to an old joke are entirely intentional.

Even Divine Intervention…

(an otherwhirled original) …couldn’t get Hillary not to sound like the moderate that nobody wants.
 
‘I am squishing your head, Hillary,’ spake the Divinity.
 
‘Good luck, Lord,’ replied Bill. ‘Trust me, it’s like a rock! Hey, now that woulda been a better theme song for her campaign!’
