Not So Long Ago

Remember the good ol' days when you wrote letters to your elected representatives, sent them in the mail and they replied in kind?

Remember not so long ago when our President promised the most transparent administration, evah?

“When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, ‘You’re not even to acknowledge the drone program. You’re not even to discuss that it exists,” said Gibbs.

Even now, after the administration leaked the white paper, intentionally leading to the release of a carefully chosen memo, we're still not supposed to talk about the targeting of a 16 year old, the other memos, or the use of drones on US soil. Senators are supposed to shut their mouths and vote for Brennan.

The President used to send me emails, though never letters, inviting me to buy a lottery ticket to have dinner with him and his family. Can you imagine?

"Please pass the salt, Mr. President, and explain the legal reasoning behind your decision to murder a teenage US citizen."

"This foie gras is excellent, Mrs. First Lady, did you know that your husband cut a secret deal with big Pharma that has cost Americans mandated millions?"
