Pelosi & Reid Paid 30 Pieces Of Silver For FISA

Washington, D.C. - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi have come out in total support of amnesty for lawbreaking telecoms and unrestricted spying on American citizens in return for thirty pieces of silver with the promise of much more to follow.

In a joint news conference, Pelosi and Reid placed their hands over their hearts and swore their allegiance to George Bush and the major telecom companies who have successfully negotiated a deal to purchase their congressional services. Said Pelosi, "Our unconditional support of corporate lawbreaking and the destruction of the Bill of Rights is only the first step. Consider the FISA bill our down payment on our vision of America and the serfs who populate it."

In response to criticism over their embrace of Bush and corporate lawbreaking and the fact that the average citizen could not receive the same preferential treatment, Reid replied "Look, this is how Nancy and I do business, just like the Republicans. This is a pay to play system here. If John Q. Public can come up with a briefcase of cash then he can have access to."

I've said this for awhile, but this proves that the Congressional races are of limited significance. As long as Congress is perfectly willing to cede its power to the executive branch, it's the White House that holds the keys to power - all of them. If we're going to have a king, let's make sure we get the best damn king we can.
