If you have "no place to go," come here!

"Hello, may I speak to the Village?"

"Hello? Hello, hello? Oh, hi. You suck."

"Thanks for listening. That is all."

NOTE Why don't they just fucking kill FISA instead of fucking postponing it? More kabuki.

...I was glued to my (temporary) TV yesterday, watching the John Yoo hearing on CSPAN. It was a surreal trainwreck. The man claimed he didn't know how to interpret the word "interpret."

Massive suckitude. Readers, more good examples?

NOTE Yoo's statement is just uber-meta, isn't it?

The best parts were when Subcommittee Chairman Nadler repeatedly explained to Yoo that he had to assert his OWN privelege in refusing to answer questions, not SOMEONE ELSE'S privilege, and Yoo looked like an innocent deer in headlights as Gollum behind him whispered sweet nothings in his ear (not kidding) and Yoo said, "But...but the justice department told me to assert attorney-client privilege..."

Nadler: *bang head on desk*

Now lather, rince, repeat.

Addington was there, grinning the whole time like a Cheshire Cat. He had no Gollum behind him, and openly mocked his interrogators when they repeated attempted to figure out how much he knew about interrogation...

ETA: Even the Republican who bothered to attend didn't really try to defend their behaviour. He yielded his own questioning time and made only a couple of tepid procedural objections as stand-in for the Ranking Member.
