Somebody get John Dean an interview with Olbermann

It’s obvious that the dirty tricksters in the Justice Department are at it again, even after Gonzales’s departure.

It what can only be described as a purely partisan witch-hunt intended to harass a Democrat office seeker, the US Attorney in the SDNY has filed a criminal complaint against Norman Hsu.

The timing of this is too transparent to be merely coincidental.

On Monday Michael Mukasey was nominated to be Attorney General. Mukasey was a federal prosecutor at the same time as Rudy Giuliani in the SDNY, and Mukasey and Giuliani were both partners in Patterson Belknap in New York after departing the Justice Department in the late 1970s.

Mukasey has contributed money to Giuliani’s Presidential campaign, and was then picked from obscurity to become AG.

It’s possible that Clinton might now have to surrender large sums of campaign contributions on the basis unfounded, tinfoil-hat allegation that they are the proceeds of specified unlawful activity under both the Money Laundering and RICO statutes. She may have no choice but to accept public funding of her campaign.

It’s clear that the GOP is positioning itself to steal another election in 2008.

This is going to be my writing sample for a staff position at MoveOn.Org.

What do you think????

  1. Hmm. If you change the word “basis” to “unfounded, tinfoil-hat allegation”, I think you might just make it.

  2. The moment it finally dawned on me that you were joking, I laughed so hard I think I peed a little…

  3. Scott — that’s ok. As long as it was just a little. Otherwise I’d have a doctor take a look.

  4. Somewhere in your writing you have to extoll the virtues of:
    • Progressives
    • Al Gore and his crusade against anthropogenic global warming
    • same-sex marriage
    • Single-payer health insurance

    You must also demonize:
    • Fox News
    • the US military
    • GWB

  5. Hmmm, WLS, it needs more frothy droll and emotive rhetoric, sounds too reasonable for MoveOn.org.

  6. You surely convinced me!

    You forgot the paragraph blaming Bush so they will probably only offer you an internship.

  9. So now you’re reduced to inventing articles to knock down? This takes the concept of a straw man to a whole new level.
    Congratulations someone should nominate you for an Emmy.

  10. As they used to say in ‘Vegas:
    You’re trying to make your point the hard way!

    or…

    “…Its clear that the GOP is positioning itself to steal another election in 2008.”

    And, your point is???

  11. Balh, uh no. Maybe you should read it again. Or get someone to explain it to you.

  12. If blah does not understand satire now, I doubt we could explain it to him.

  13. This reminds me of the David Allen Coe song, “You never even call me by my name” in which he attempts to write the perfect country and western song. He was told that his song had some missing elements in it – mama, prison, pickup trucks and getting drunk. So he added the following verse, thereby creating the perfect country and western song:

    I was drunk the night my mama got out of prison
    I went to pick her up in the pouring rain
    But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
    She got run over by a damn freight train

    So, you will need to add a verse like this:

    This is just another example of the Bushitlerites trying to steal an election for Haliburton and launch another illegal war for oil designed to fatten corporate coffers. When we take back the country and our progressive principles are again the law of the land, we are going to end those tax cuts for the rich and launch an investigation into all of Chimpy’s business and round up him and the rest of his bible thumpin’ cohorts and frog march them right into prison. Yeeeaaaaahhhhh!

    Hope it didn’t take too long…
