"Ex-prez Carter: 'America has no functioning democracy' with PRISM
Former President Peanut Farmer rebukes Shrub"
Yep. Who's in the White House of this malfunctioned democracy of a republic right now, and why ain't Jimmy's words rebuking him?
Remember, kids, when democracy breaks and somebody notices, it's George Bush's fault even if he's retired and painting pictures of doggies at the time.
Meanwhile (and as the graphic at L. Neil Smith At Random indicates), we've had a Presidential term-plus and some 2447 days of Dems having enough votes in Congress to close Gitmo, repeal the Patriot Act and stifle the Department Of Homeland Security, and generally fix some of the worst excesses of the Bush years and so far they've...done nothing. Bupkis; and I remember it being real, red-hot stuff done (single-handedly!) by a Very Bad Man they were fixin' to fix, first thing, you just fill that ballot out and drop it right here, NEXT! And they got in and didn't roll back any of it, not one iota.
That must be Bush's fault, too.
