You know what cracks me up...and I mean all the way the fuck up? [View all]

If Edward Snowden had pulled his caper anywhere between January 2001 and January 2009, you people calling him a criminal would be building statues of him in your front yards. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes, you would...so, basically, I am calling you suckers for the Team Sports aspect of American politics.

To wit: if Snowden's revelations hurt Bush, you'd throw him a fucking bunting-beveled parade...but ermahgerd, it hurts Obama...he's a criminal.

With all respect: find a fucking mirror.
