Level Red! Oh, Wait...

The Tea Party joined forces with Democrats yesterday and gave Republican leadership and the White House a major snub by rejecting an extension of the Patriot Act in the House. First time I’ve actually liked the Tea Party, when they come out and say that civil liberties are more important than catering to fear mongering. Those are some “American values” that I can get behind.

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Stupidity, responded with a blast about how the “threat of terrorism is at it’s highest point since 9/11 right now.” Of course she did. If the American people are becoming less afraid and actually beginning to assert their damned rights, then it’s certainly time to put some fear back into them again.

She had a little problem, though, since her boss is asserting, in an interview on Fox News no less, that “we are defeating al Qaeda.” So she went on to say that in addition to that bogey man, “the country faces new threats from those inspired by the group and those already inside the United States.”

Omigod, they’re already here. Who did they follow home? Check that cab driver; does he have a gun? A bomb? What’s that in your pants?
