Evil overlords to flaccid clowns in the blink of Jesus' eye. Adorable!
http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/g/a/2009/0...

By Mark Morford, SF Gate Columnist

Friday, May 1, 2009

This much we know: Hand evil a big, sticky gob of power, and it quickly becomes a feral monster, dangerous and cruel and willing to sell its own shriveled heart and the heart of its very remorseful mother for a shot at everlasting infamy, even more power and maybe some fresh, raw kitten blood, intravenously, just for the hell of it.

Oh, but take that same vile leviathan and suddenly strip away all its power and influence and capacity for wickedness, and watch it deflate like a wheezing circus tent, quickly turning into a trembling caricature of its former self, a tiny, elfin thing small enough to fit into a shoebox of panic and pathos and residual Godspit.

4. Thanks for that. I have passed it on.
We're having a debate in our Family about how New President Obama actually is. I understand and agree with to some extent all of the arguments that say he is owned as much as we are, but on the point that Morford makes about Obama's intelligence, I continue to wonder if it is not possible, through sheer intellect, to elicit something new out of the old slavery.

We will see.

7. Don't be too overconfident that their various enablers throughout many disciplines/orgs are gone
I'm sure there are still plenty of em within the alphabet orgs, intel orgs, and of course, the sociopathic Pentagon types
