It's Time for Another Round of Awards

Yes, it's time to wash the kids, tie up the animals, put on your dancing shoes and take an extra dose of Xanax!

In honor of their special parts in the fall the empire, we have Porter Goss and Dick Cheney receiving Congressional Distinguished Service Awards.

"The Congressional Distinguished Service Award was established to
honor former Members of the House who have performed their duties on
behalf of their constituents and the American people with such
extraordinary distinction and selfless dedication as to merit special
recognition," reads an invitation to the ceremony...

Now if by "extraordinary distinction and selfless dedication," they mean leading us into a ridiculously expensive and unnecessary war based on lies or helping cover up various and sundry intelligence failures before being very careful not to let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, all the while getting richy-rich-rich-rich from your Halliburton stock options or chillin' at poker parties with hookers and corrupt lobbyists, then by golly, these guys do deserve medals.
