Looks Like Luca Brasi May Be Taking A Trip To Texas

Whilst slooshing through the Ted Stevens Memorial Inter Toobz recently, we experienced one of those trans dimensional moments that are usually only induced by copious amounts of adult beverages. However, this being a school night we had eschewed our nominal intake of conscious altering substances, and instead were quite contentedly sipping a fine chamomile mint when it became glaringly obvious to us that we had fallen down the rabbit hole, and not the one we fell into eight years ago either.

A Willacy County grand jury under District Attorney Juan Angel Guerra returned multi-count indictments Monday against Vice President Dick Cheney, former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, plus several other public officials.

Oh, do go on.

The indictment accuses Cheney and Gonzales of engaging in organized criminal activity.

You don't say.

Gonzales is accused of using his position while in office to stop an investigation into abuses at the federal detention centers.

We are shocked, we tell you, shocked.

It criticizes Cheney's investment in the Vanguard Group, which holds interests in the private prison companies running the federal detention centers. It accuses Cheney of a conflict of interest and "at least misdemeanor assaults" on detainees by working through the prison companies.

Well, now we know the charge is bogus. Cheney committing a "misdemeanor" assault. Yeah, like you'd walk away from what he did to you, right Whittington?

They all face a stream of criminal charges including abuse of office, profiting from office, and murder.

Did you say Muuuuurrrrrduuuurrrr??? Where is Joe Biden anyway?

"Happy 85th Birthday" Ted Stevens!
After forty years in the Senate and screwing taxpayers with every breath, may you rest in peace.
As for "the others", their day will come.
