My Homage To Feigned Outrage

Republicans (and Joe Lieberman) have been staging yet another temper tantrum. What’s their grievance du jour? Speaker Nancy Pelosi said CIA leaders misled Congress about interrogation techniques.

My Homage To Feigned Outrage
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The CIA’s under attack
By the Speaker who gave it a smack.
She accused it of lying.
The GOP’s crying:
She’s mean and must take it all back.

    Okay, given that we are all shocked, shocked, by insinuations of duplicity on the part of Our Brave Men and Women of the CIA, who serve and protect us by torturing taxi drivers, deposing democracies for dictators, and tutoring terrorists of many stripes…and leaving aside that the senior Republican on the Senate Intel Committee also complained about “misleading” information (“lies”) from CIA spokesgoons…I think we can all agree that this Pelosi business is just appalling, ain’t it?

    But do not trouble yourself, grasshopper, for all is unfolding according to plan. Consider: Why was Pelosi even invited to that long-ago briefing…

    Hook, line, and clearance, she went
    To The Briefing in Cheney’s big tent;
    Now she knows way too much,
    So the crime hounds can’t touch
    Cheney’s crooks, for they might catch her scent.

    Nice post, Mad! Our tough-guy drama queens in Congress are just an endless fount of material, no?

    Thanks for the kind words and your thoughtful and entertaining post.

    As for material, you’re absolutely right. I’m still amused by all the people who worried that if Obama was elected there’d be nothing left to mock.
