"We decided to let George Bush go ahead and have his fun with waterboarding, until his term ends," Feinstien remarked, yesterday, when she stated that she will vote to confirm Michael Mukasey for Attorney general, even though he doesn't know whether or not waterboarding is torture.
Harvard professor of political science Barney Hampton expained, "This is really not much of a surprise. Unlike her contemporary California Senator Barbara Boxer, who consistently votes according to the values of the Democratic majority in California that elected her, Feinstien has always gone along with the special interest groups who fund her campaigns. She carefully observes the tea leafs, to see if she can get away with ignoring public opinion."
"But this time," professor Hampton continued, "Feinstein read the tea leaves wrong. The overwhelming majority of Americans...including the Republicans who elected him...now recognize that electing George Bush was a big mistake."
"Right now," professor Hampton emphasized, "the American people are looking for leaders who will stand up to Bush and Cheney, rather than docily go along with their demented agenda. Waterboarding has become the defining issue of our times, because it is central to whether or not our nation can once again rise to the level of greatness and leadership in the world, or whether we will be rightfully despised, by people around the entire world for our brutality and cowardice."
"Since Haliburton has moved its corporate headquarters to Dubais, and as the price of gasoline continues to soar, at this point, most Americans are pretty much aware, that our government has been hijacked by Cheney and his gang of thugs, serving only the interests of Haliburton, and that they really have no interest in the well-being of Americans."
"The public is now wanting to know, who is going to stand up to these thugs, and bring back our government to the American people?" professor Hampton concluded.
