Tyranny, thy name is Bush

King George took his oath of office today. George pledged "the policy of the United States to seek and support the growth of democratic movements and institutions in every nation and culture with the ultimate goal of ending tyranny in our world".

That's the funniest thing I've heard all week. Now that's irony coming from a man who has ordered political prisoners to be held incommunicado and to be tortured in the name of national security. A man who still refuses to charge Jose Padilla with a crime. A man who proposes to build a prison to hold these political prisoners for the rest of their lives without a trial or even access to a military tribunal.

This from the man who stole the election in 2000 and used fear and lies to gain power in 2004. God, that's too funny.
