I have no idea what the source of this is, other than the wonderful bookofdays blog where I found it. It may be a real screen shot (and god I do hope so) or it may be the product of photoshop.
But wherever it came from the picture has had me laughing for the past two days. Sure it’s bitter laughter, but laughter nonetheless. I know a lot of my readers (friends who I’ve begged) are in the uk or Austrailia, but for those of you that are trapped in the US with me, calling or faxing your Senator about filibustering Al would be a good thing.
I may have seemed wishy-washy in my first About Al post but latino or not, I sure don’t want someone who can turn his legal mind to defending torture to be the country’s chief law-enforcement officer. I’m trying to imagine him attacking LAPD abuses or looking into civil rights violations and wondering how he could have any credibility.
Okay, this turned serious. But, as Chris says, the picture is worth a thousand. What I say is maybe the only thing we can do to keep from crying is to laugh.
