"Moderate" Democrats…

…like Dianne Feinstein really, really can bite me. The only thing more breathtakingly stupid and annoying than a dumb Republican is a dumb Democrat — and DiFi wanks high on the list.

So, apparently, DiFi doesn’t like the fact that we’re getting a bare minimum of scrutiny — however lame, late, and minimal — of all the nasty and massively unconstitutional shit that went on inside the CIA during the Cheney years. Nope, she doesn’t like it one bit. Might that be because she was the wanking minority member of the Senate Intelligence Committee back then and that it might be revealed what a total tool she was? Or is because she gets positively dizzy at the thought of the Beltway Insiders being held accountable for their actions and complicity — regardless of their party affiliation?

Either way, DiFi works hard to put on her “really, now!” face of mock indignation and says that:

[…] she, too, was “horrified” by a classified 2004 Central Intelligence Agency report that detailed abusive interrogation practices, Feinstein said she understood Attorney General Eric Holder’s reasons for ordering a review of the interrogation program.

“However, I think the timing of this is not very good,” Feinstein said.

But pray tell us, Queen of the Dumb and transparently duplicitous, when would be good time to undertake such a review? Never? Would never work for you? Thought so.

Just to hammer home what an exercise in futility these people are, Dianne goes on to point out that:

[…] the intelligence committee was already well along in conducting a bipartisan “total look” at the interrogation and detention techniques used on so-called high value detainees.

Really, Dianne? Well Along… Bipartisan… Total look…And let me guess: you were totally going to give every child in the United States a shiny new unicorn just as soon as you were done with this urgent and imporatnt work, but now that Eric Holder is suddenly getting all uppity and in-your-face about the law and stuff, you just can’t see how you can continue that “total look”, and so, you’re afraid all the little children are going to be disappointed?

If there is a God, he’d surely run a primary opponent to DiFi in ’10, and if He weren’t such a cynical bastard, that candidate would surely win — because anything and anyone has to be better than the useless caricature of a public servant that is Dianne Feinstein. But rumor has it that DiFi is going to run for Governor instead (at least the damage she does then will be confined to California, and with Davis and Arnold last seen driving that bus over the cliff, Gullivornya can probably handle DiFi’s mishandling the state for a few years, too).

Meanwhile, let’s see if Eric Holder can grow a pair big enough to actually make this “review” worth anything more than the mock posturing of genuine concern it appears to be. Coming from this administration, we’ve so far learned to expect precious little (if we’re not a bank, an insurance company, or a belligerent Republican), and to get even less.
