(Reuters) Bush denies spying infringes on privacy

(AP) Ex-Qwest CEO Balked at NSA Records Sweep

Hey, Our President says ordinary Americans have nothing to worry about. Of course, a few months ago, he said, tapping into phone conversations required a court order, and that was a lie, and then he said that it was limited to international calls and well, that seems to be fudging it just a little, but let’s give him the benefit of the doubt…he’s got to tell the truth SOMETIME! As we all know, terrorism isn’t limited to al-Qaida either…druggies, protestors, all sorts of people “support terrorism.” And don’t you feel safer knowing that those cell phone calls you made from the No-Tell Motel when you were supposed to be at a meeting in Albuquerque are now part of the government database?

I’d prefer my skeletons remain in the closet, thank you … can you hear me now?

(TheNation) Hastert Trashes Hayden

(HuffingtonPost) Gen. Michael Hayden: Unreasonable Nominee for Probable Cause

OK, we know the drill…the answer is that Hayden is NOT Bush’s real choice for CIA Director. Like Harriet Myers, he’s the decoy. Everyone gets to jump up and down, saying what a stupid choice Hayden is, Bush stomps around saying he’s the best, most qualified man for the job (Kudos to Jon Stewart and the Daily Show team by catching Bush using the exact same words to describe Hayden that he used to describe Porter Goss less than 2 years ago) and eventually Hayden removes himself from the nomination. Bush names someone only slightly less controversial, everyone breathes a sigh of relief and confirms him (you don’t think it’ll be a HER, do you?) without a second thought…
