Sometimes politics is just too funny. Like, remember when Dick Cheney countered Barack Obama’s assertion that enhanced interrogation techniques made us less safe by accusing him of “phony moralizing?” Ha! Or when the Senate passed legislation that would rein in credit card rate increases and excessive fees, a move which arguably ushers us into a new era of credit card reform? A gas!
But for real, once in a while, the soulless shells of human beings that walk our halls of power make funny.
I vote that we hire this hero, Douglas Wilder, to engage in a to-the-death speak-off with another hero, John Moschitta. Doug, you may have displayed your patriotism through enhanced congressional testimony, but John is actually carrying an aircraft carrier. Who’s the patriot now?
