No steps forward, two steps back

Rice wins easy confirmation for top State post
Senate panel OKs Gonzales on 10-8 vote

Well, here we go. Fasten your seat belts, people, because the wild ride begins. One of dubya's chief warmongers (and not even a very good one) is now our highest diplomat, and our highest ranking advocate of torture is well on his way to becoming our nation's Top Cop.

Look out world. We don't need your stinking badges. We'll spread "freedom" wherever we want no matter what you think about it. Of course, we'll start with countries that have vast natural resources, 'cause otherwise, what's the point. How can you have spoils of war without spoils.

And here at home, thanks to the threat of terrorism, our government can have access to any information about its citizens that it can think of, regardless of civil rights. After all, we're fighting terrorism here. What are a few trampled rights when the greater good is at stake, right? And why do you need privacy if you have nothing to hide?

Please keep your hands and arms inside the ride at all times. And you might watch your head also. Especially if you're traveling abroad.
