I think the news that the House is readying to cave to the telecommunication corporations and grant retroactive immunity requires the blogosphere to commit a really futile and stupid gesture.
D-Day: War’s over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.
Bluto: Over? Did you say “over”? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
Boon: Forget it, he’s rolling.
Bluto: And it ain’t over now. ‘Cause when the goin’ gets tough…
Bluto: the tough get goin’! Who’s with me? Let’s go!
[runs out, alone; then returns]
Bluto: What the fuck happened to the Delta I used to know? Where’s the spirit? Where’s the guts, huh? “Ooh, we’re afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble.” Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I’m not gonna take this. Wormer, he’s a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer…
Otter: Dead! Bluto’s right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part.
Bluto: We’re just the guys to do it.
D-Day: Let’s do it.
Bluto: LET’S DO IT!
It’s obvious at this point that Jay Rockefeller is guilty of knowingly going along with serial violations of our Fourth Amendment rights. He doesn’t want lawsuits that will expose that he is Dick Cheney’s accomplice. There is probably no way that Jay Rockefeller can be defeated in a primary or the general election. But, who cares? We need to send a message. I’ll give money to any buffoon that runs against him. And if no one runs against him, I’ll give money to the Republican. Jello Jay Rockefeller is now at the very top of my shit list. He’s a criminal as far as I am concerned, and he is strong-arming other Democrats into covering up his crimes. Not me. He should be frog-marched into a federal penitentiary.
