dear the congress of the united states,

Bush's brash admission to spying on Americans is so egregious it deserves two posts. The more serious post by Lindsay [HERE] and tony pierce's cheeky approach (not for fans of "tasteful discourse"):

dear the congress of the united states,
if you cant figure out to impeach this sonofabitch after this bullshit then you have absolutely no right to even run for anything above dogcatcher because he is saying that spying is cool and you have to tell the president that its not cool.
he went around you, he went around the court and unless you want to prove to the world that even you acknowledge that youre a rubber stamp for the administration, a pajamas media jeff guckert insta footballs... you're going to continue letting him go around the constitution
