Welcome to Obamaland. Please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle, it makes sharp right turns

CIA ‘amnesty’ dismays campaigners – um, sure. Dismayed. Right. You know, I kind of hope this costs Obama the next election (actually no, I don’t. I think it will take longer than four years for the Republican party to be reconstituted into something worthwhile….or replaced) – besides, I know that the American people are fickle. As long as they’ve got their cable, their shitty fast food, and their porn streaming in along the ‘tubes, they won’t care.
At this point, I think it’s pretty much a given that Obama’s going to pardon anyone that looks like they might actually see some prosecution. Well, unless the American people exercise Vox Populi (witness AiG) but in this case, it doesn’t actually affect their quality of life, so the outrage will blow over.
I think Salon about called it and did so back in August. Specifically that Obama is only interested in the criminal occurances of the last eight years insofar as he wants to appear to be involved – likely in the time honored tradition of a ‘blue ribbon fact finding team’ which, as all such teams are, given the answers on hiring.
I mean, to go after BushCo he’d have to appear partisan now wouldn’t he? You know, if I believed in any tinfoil hat nonsense about the whole world being run by six people in a locked room, it’d be shit like that that I would cite as evidence.
Of course, I’m waiting for Dick Cheney to speak up. I mean, Mr. Credibility won’t be able to resist rubbing his robotic face in it. Hell, he probably really does think that “this has helped the American people”

“…and we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.”
Dick Cheney NBC’s “Meet the Press”, March 16, 2003

“I have not suggested there’s a connection between Iraq and 9/11.”
Dick Cheney, 2nd Presidential Debate, October 5, 2004

“I think there’s overwhelming evidence that there was a connection between al-Qaeda and the Iraqi government.”
Dick Cheney National Public Radio’s, “Morning Edition,” January 22, 2004

“I’m up in the Senate most Tuesdays when they’re in session.”
Dick Cheney, 2nd Presidential Debate, October 5, 2004 (Per Senate records, Cheney had only presided over the Senate twice in four years as Vice President prior to this statement)

“Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.”
Dick Cheney, August 26, 2002

Yes, that Dick Cheney. I mean, the way is now clear for Dick to tell the world that he viagra’d himself to videotaped “confessions” – the worst that could happen is that Obama will wait an extra day to Gerald Ford the whole thing.
