Say It Ain't So, Yo

Ready for something really scary? How about a story with this headline?

New presidential directive gives Bush dictatorial power
National Security & Homeland Security Presidential Directive establishes "National Continuity Policy"

Man, what a thing to come across right before I go to bed. I haven't looked closely at the text of the directive yet; I'm posting this partly as reminder-to-self.

Once upon a time, in the kinder, gentler days of summer 2004, I had a vision of the election coming out the way it should have. And then I flashed on the White House, come January 2005, imagining George and Dick barricaded inside. This nightmare was relieved only by the image of a crowd beyond counting, all chanting, "Get out! Get out! Get out!" There were heroic troops, disobeying the orders coming from inside, to fire on the crowd. Finally, the most powerful creature in America exited through one of his many secure undisclosed tunnels, and George ran for the nearby helicopter on the White House lawn.

Hat tip for the link: Jinnet. Good to see that someone still has the strength to pay attention.
