George Bush Threatens to Let the Patriot Act Expire

Regardless of where your sympathies lie in the measure to renew the Patriot Act, I'm sure you can't help but giggle when you hear the Preznit threatening to veto a three month extension. Can you even imagine George Bush vetoing this and letting the Patriot Act expire? He wouldn't dream of it.

If that's what the Senate decided on, and he had to choose between vetoing it and letting it expire or extending it by three months, what do you think he'd do? Given those circumstances, there's no freakin' way would he veto it. He is so bluffing and everyone knows it!

Time is gittin' short, Senators are gittin' cranky and they still can't agree on a few things. Why not extend the Patriot Act as is, for three months, and continue haggling over it next month? Wouldn't that satisfy everyone and make everyone's holiday a little brighter?

Even for little Alberto Gonzales, who might get the shakes when he wakes up on January 1st, if the Patriot Act is not renewed.

    Yes, we must renew the Idiot Act so those guys have something to do. If they don't have all this useless spying to keep them busy they might turn their attention to...oh, I don't know...making perverted dollhouses or something.

    yes, six more months of fascism. The Democrats wanted three months, the GOP wanted a year and then they compromised. So now they have six months to duke it out on the details.

    It would appear that Bush is a, how do you Americans say, lame-duck. Mr. I-don't-need-no-Dept.-of-Homeland-Security-no-way-no-how, over-my-dead-body-will-we-withdraw-any-troops-from-Iraq.

    What a dink.
