December 16, 2005

That's it. I'm outta here.

The Confidence Man reads with rising gorge the NYT report on Bush's authorization of the NSA to conduct heretofore-illegal wiretaps on American citizens.

But what really renders us bilious is the revelation, buried deep in the story, that the Times SAT ON THE STORY FOR A YEAR.

1. The NYT is DONE. Finis. Kaput.

2. Hmmm ... what major American political event transpired approximately 1 year ago ... hmmm, our memory seems faulty ... hmmm ... let's see, it's now December 2005, so a year ago would have been ... uh, carry the 10s column, uh ... 200- ... 4? Yes, that's it: 2004. Now, what month immediately precedes December? Nnnn- ... Nnnnov- ... Nnnnnnnovem- ... November? Let's see -- 1 + 1 = ... t- ... tw- ... two!

Alright, we'll say it: the Bush Administration convinced the NYT to not publish this story prior to the 2004 election.

Impeach these pigfuckers. Impeach 'em NOW.

And cancel your NYT sub.
