Crickets, anyone?

barry worldWe all know George W. Bush’s surveillance nation was the most disgraceful action undertaken by a U.S. president since LBJ lifted his beagle by its ears.

But now we find out Dear Reader is doing the same (not the beagle lifting)… only worse. This all has to be some sort of terrible typographic error, right?

Documents obtained by the ACLU through a Freedom of Information Act request revealed that under President Obama between 2009 and 2011, warrantless electronic surveillance requests by the Justice Department to spy on phone communications increased 60 percent from 23,535 to 37,616.

The number of people whose phone calls were subject to such surveillance during that same time period tripled.

Up 60 percent? Tripled? It’s probably all attributable to the fact those do-nothing Republicans in Congress the House prevented taxpayer funding for the Justice Department, leaving them short-staffed and allowing such things to be publically reported (versus destroying the information before the FOIA request could be processed).

And another thing: that whole Bush/Guantanamo Bay debacle? That was just another form of extra-legal conservative activity, almost like a concentration camp… err… never mind.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
