Paul Craig Roberts Has Lost It
Former Reagan official Paul Craig Roberts has gone over the deep end and dove head first into a pool of Bush-bashing kool-aid. He thinks (without a shread of evidence) that the NSA terrorist spying was on media and Democrats. That information is now being used to blackmail both. He writes,
The years of illegal spying have given the Bush administration power over the media and the opposition. Journalists and Democratic politicians don't want to have their adulterous affairs broadcast over television or to see their favorite online porn sites revealed in headlines in the local press with their names attached. Only people willing to risk such disclosures can stand up for the country.
It gets better. Roberts even thinks the no-fly list is a political weapon:
How long before members of the opposition party, should there be one, find that they cannot return to Washington for important votes, because they have been placed on the no-fly list? What oversight does Congress or a panel of federal judges exercise over the list to make sure there are valid reasons for placing people on the list?
I think I just witnessed a mental breakdown in written form. Someone get Mr. Roberts his slippers and a teddy bear.
