Licorice: "Even us hamsters know that this is treason.
America's rodents and people would be much safer if you stupid dhimmis would hang
some of these seditious traitors who repeatedly violate 18 U.S.C. §798 over and over,
beginning with Bill Keller and my Mistress' competition for my savior, hottie Emma Gilbey, now Ms. Keller."

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
Great post Dio!
Cute but meaningless. 18 U.S.C. §798 is what you can charge those who leaked the information under. The Supreme Court ruled in New Your Times Co. v U.S. (aka Pentagon Papers case) that the First Amendment outweighed the Executive Branch's claim of secrecy, so the Times can print what information they get regardless.
A big glob of Gorila Glue in the coin slot renders the New York Times harmless.
Bless you for this very moving post!!
This should be THE campaign ad for 2008, but I don't think the current Repub party has the stones to use it !!
