Ohhhhh! Homeland Security? I thought you said Presidential Job Security!

Administration sources tell TIME that employees at the Department of Homeland Security have been asked to keep their eyes open for opportunities to pose the President in settings that might highlight the Administration's efforts to make the nation safer. The goal, they are being told, is to provide Bush with one homeland-security photo-op a month.

Ezra over at Pandagon, the guy who's post on women bloggers essentially irked me into creating this blog, has asked everyone to blog on this paragraph. I am more than willing to oblige.

The Department of Homeland Security is using taxpayer money, money given to them to protect us, to assist President Photo-Op in his effort to get elected again for the first time. I have to express my feelings about this:


I just love the security priorities of this administration. We get bombed by Osama bin Laden, and thus declare war on Iraq, which was an imminent threat, one that had to be dealt with immediately because of his weapons of mass destruction, until we discovered there are no weapons of mass destruction, at which point they tell us that they never said Hussein was an imminent threat, not in those exact words, and what exactly is "is", anyway? Oh, and when the terrorists swoop into Iraq, it's a good thing they're killing our men and women, because the more soldiers they kill, the more desperate they are!

Oh yeah, I feel safer, knowing that our Homeland Security if focused on finding photo opportunities. It's like half the country has been snowed by a sick Republican version Fernando from SNL: "It's better to loook like we are making you safer than to actually make you safer, darling!"
