Yes, she's strange and different...but not THAT different.

Keeping us safe

I heard DICK Vader Cheney saying the other day that all the shit that the Bush administration did to remove and suppress our rights kept the country safe. Because of all that administration's repressions, we weren't attacked ... after 9/11, that is. His little speech sounded familiar to me, though, and then I placed it.

There's an old joke about a guy walking down the sidewalk in Manhattan and every few steps, he stops and screams, "GO AWAY! DON'T COME ANY CLOSER!" After a little while, a cop stops him and asks him if he's OK, to which the man answers that he's fine. So the cop then asks him why he's screaming and the man calmly explains that his screaming keeps the wild elephants away. When the cop tells him that there aren't any wild elephants in all of Manhattan, the man just smiles and says, "See? It works."

See? The Patriot Act and Gitmo and WMD and Global War on Terror worked.
