Huh. Imagine that.
The administration is starting to unravel under the weight of scandal after scandal finally being dragged out into the light of day. The Democrats have said that they plan on issuing a subpoena to Karl Rove, to get him testifying under oath….
And now the media is full of stories about how Khalid Sheik Mohammad has confessed to masterminding the 9/11 attacks.
HOLY CRAP! BIG NEWS!!! Stop the presses! Remember — they hate us for our Freedom, and the Bush administration is all that stands between you and the Islamofascist Horde!!!!11!!OMGWTF!!
Um….except that…..didn’t we already KNOW he was behind it? Wasn’t that why we went after his ass in Pakistan in the FIRST fucking place????
Jesus Christ. They think we’re idiots.
Democrats with subpoena power. That’s what it’s taken to get this crap out into the open.

Verra nifty, especially in light of my immersion in things Martian as I come down the home stretch for release of our MARS RPG.
