The Only Cat Out of the Bag Is Bush's Dictatorial Designs

Does the President truly expect anyone to believe that the revelation that he authorized domestic spying surprised any but the dullest of terrorists? I’ve got a (non-terrorist, U.S. citizen) friend who, when he talks on the phone, calls weed “Roquefort” because he’s so sure Big Brother Bush is listening in. I mean, what kind of brain-addled terrorist gabs on the phone to his uncle in Yemen about his plans to detonate Disneyland? Do you really think they said, before the revelation of this latest scandal, “Relax Fouad, America is the land of the free. The Great Satan would not dare listen in to our conversation. And besides, I have MCI friends and family so it is only costing me eight cents a minute!”
