I don't wish to detract from HH's extremely interesting dialogue concerning the the NYT, the NSA , or Bush (stay with me here....) and I mean that sincerely because I think the exchange here has been fabulous, and I will do my part to make sure it continues. But....
Butt [sic] as a guest blogger, and one who had a hand in crafting the questions to Sunday's poll, I am mindful of its results--as well as Pile On's needs--so I thought it would be benefecial to offer up results while I gather my thoughts, and craft my arguments in response to spd' s and Don's stinging "Truth and Consequences" retorts below.
Lest HH's current Management rap my knuckles (again) because it thinks I am pandering to its readership, or worse, its claim that Portia is delaying her "yet to be framed constitutional arguments," I say you're right. She is. I am. We are.
Heh. Therein lies the beauty of Amerika, folks, and all its, um, cheekiness. [Rim shot] Thankfully, we live in a country where Portia doesn't have to hesitate to publish four-color secrets about which the world should know, and which a handful may claim rise to the level of classified information, or worse, reveal National Pastime secrets (after baseball, of course.)
Is anybody listening to a freakin' word I'm saying????
Just as I expected:)
Note to Management: I promise to connect the dots between asses, freedom of speech, and iPods. Well...I promise to connect at least two our of the three. Stay tuned.
Now, where were we?
