Another day, another Pelosi explanation of what she knew about the “torture” she so abhors — and when she knew it. On top of everything else, she’s upstaged by her nemesis, Rep. Jane Harman.
Nancy Pelosi is No Paul Revere
(with apologies to Longfellow)
By Asher Embry
Listen, Pelosi, and you shall hear,
Of the CIA briefings and what they made clear.
On the fourth of September, Two Thousand and Two
Zubaydah’s tough treatment was detailed for you.
You’re feigning of shock now is just cavalier.
It’s hard to believe that you simply forgot,
When you said so emphatically that you “were not”
Ever told that the CIA used EIT’s,
Did KSM sing ‘cause we said “pretty please?”
There’s no one who really thinks that’s what you thought.
Face it, dear Nancy, we think it’d be wise,
To stop digging holes when you’re caught telling lies.
You’ve a good many reasons this happened, you say;
But did no one explain they can’t change every day?
It does come back to haunt, when you politicize.
The outrage is not what we did to our foes,
But the fact that our secrets you’d gladly expose.
You criticize Bush but it surely must chafe,
That he and his plans did in fact keep us safe.
While you, when it mattered, didn’t even oppose.
Perhaps the “Truth Hearings” you so want to
Should explore the effects of your hypocrisy.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
