Arlen Specter Successfully Pretends He Accomplished Something
Arlen Specter announced today that the administration has tentatively agreed to let the secret FISA court do a "one-time review" of the illegal NSA domestic spying program that has been in operation for years and will continue to be in operation indefinitely. President Bush reserves the right to change any bit of the deal he feels like changing. Mr. Specter said the agreement reflected the fact that "the president does not have a blank check."
Specter then began striking his open palm against his cheek while White House spokesperson Dana Parino asked reporters, "why is Senator Specter hitting himself? Why is Senator Specter hitting himself?"
