It looks like the US Senate is going to fall into step with the US House, and legalize torture, eliminate Habeas Corpus, and set the stage to decimate the US Constitution [via]. As The New York Times succintly puts it,

The Bush administration uses Republicans’ fear of losing their majority to push through ghastly ideas about antiterrorism that will make American troops less safe and do lasting damage to our 217-year-old nation of laws — while actually doing nothing to protect the nation from terrorists. Democrats betray their principles to avoid last-minute attack ads.

It is madness.

The only way that I can fight this... well, the only way that I will fight this... is with words.

And so I proclaim that I will, forthwith, refer to the US President, as King. I am not the first to do so. I am not the first to recognize that since King George II has more rights than an average citizen, he is no longer an average citizen.

He is King.

And I am the revolution.

Have you heard about the plan to arm ships on Lake Huron with machine guns (an anti-terrorist measure). Target practice is supposed to start next summer

This George is actually the third U.S. president with the first name "George." So, King George III -- what delicious irony.
