Yeesh. I go away for awhile and come back just in time to read « the most hypocritical, outrageous lies ever spoken by the Boy Emperor »
‘Referring to Putin’s recent steps to consolidate power, roll back democratic reforms and curb press and political freedoms, Bush said: “We must always remind Russia that our alliance stands for a free press, a vital opposition, the sharing of power and the rule of law. The United States should place democratic reform at the heart of their dialogue with Russia,” he said in his speech.’
— SF Chronicle
Actually, Amurrica’s ‘free press’ consists of bribed propagandists and closeted fascist homosexuals who would have made Ernst Roehm blush; the opposition’s vitals are hanging out all over the place; power is hoarded not shared; the rule of law means nothing in the face of Konzentrationslagers Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib and the ascension of torture-apologists and enablers Alberto Gonzalez and John Negroponte; and democratic reform will not begin until the moment in 2009 when the Emperor shuffles off to Crawford for a permanent brush-clearing gig (or at least we can still hope).
Note to the Emperor: Christ (you know the one … Jesus, the hero who changed your heart) said not to try to take a speck out of your neighbor’s eye when you’ve got a board in your own. Let’s tend to the veritable forest in our own baby blues and leave Pooty-Poot alone, shall we? There’s a good lad.
