2. Okay, that totally went over my head if Gonzales really said that!
Did Colbert doctor a clip for comic effect or was that authentic?

5. No Gonzales actually said this
and his point is that electricity was not in use during George Washingtons time.

7. Now I know why Ben Franklin was out with that kite and key combo!
He was sending an encrypted electronic kite message with a PGP key!

Of course!

8. I get it. But I guess when I first saw the clip, last week...
I wasn't paying attention and my mind replaced "electronic surveillance" with "spying." So I knew people were making hay of the clip but I thought it was just because it was silly to invoke George Washington's activities in comparison to modern espionage techniques.

Jesus, Gonzales really does have the same mentality as his overlord.

6. I watched Gonzo's testimony live and yes he really did say that.
The whole hearing was a trip to listen to.
