Vercotti: Doug (takes a drink) I was terrified of him. Everyone was terrified of Doug. I've seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug. Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug.

Interviewer: What did he do?

Vercotti: He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, pathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

The article says that actual terrorism, like the Boston Marathon bombing, ain’t something this committee is interested in. Which means, of course, they’re once again going after their political enemies, people who for some unknown reason think the Obama Administration are all depraved scumbags. /sarc

Did I miss something or is Bush still in office? Has Obama read about this in the newpaper yet?

Does the Secret Service' software detect any prisoner trades from Gitmo that Congress would never approve of if they knew about it in time?
