Politics, pop culture, and self-deprecation

Oh, thank buddha. At least one small piece of good news has entered my life in the past week: Ashcroft is out.

I find it pretty humourous, and awfully indicative of the non-reality based lives of Bush & Co., that he had this to say about his tenure as Atty General:

“The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved.”

Oh, certainly.

Eh, fuck him. Maybe they’ll finally uncover the statue of Justice, with her indecent bare breasts.

Larry Thompson, the oft-mentioned possible successor of Ashcroft, doesn’t seem too bad. Ok, his “crack down” on corporate crime was a bit of a joke. But I feel less wary that he’ll bring us into a Handmaid’s Tale kind of religious right future.
