Dumb-ass statement of the week: 05 - 11 Feb '06
Alberto "yes it's okay to torture as long as nobody loses an eye" Gonzales sure came up with beaut of a stupid line. This one is so classic I'm surprised they didn't save it for King George the Pathetic himself. According to an entry posted by Joshua Holland at the Alternet web log, on 06 Feb, at a hearing, Gonzo Gonzales opined:
President Washington, President Lincoln, President Wilson, President Roosevelt have all authorized electronic surveillance on a far broader scale.
No wonder the Amurcan gubmint can't learn the lessons of history . . . it's totally unclear on the entire concept of history to begin with.
