Best Comical Response to Wash. Post “Top Secret America” Series?

The Washington Post series on “Top Secret America” by Dana Priest and Bill Arkin is off to a great start.

I am shocked to learn that the federal government has little or no idea what the hell it is doing.

I expect some conservatives will want to indict the Post reporters and editors for treason….

What are the most comical responses thus far to the series?

    I’d say the funniest thing yet is that the populace has simply shrugged about having ALMOST A MILLION FRIGGIN TECHNOCRATS with High Security Clearance weaving nasty little reports on our behalf. Not to mention the fact that some of them are mercenaries working for corporations that would hire themselves out to Pol Pot if the “market” were so inclined.

    Kafka would find a lot to mine here.

    Speaking of Kafka, have you seen the little comparison of Cabinet appointees in Presidential Administrations since Teddy R? Well, seems they all hovered around the 40-50 percentiles except Carter at 22% and Ike at near 60% but the real kicker is this current administration of Joe College World Improvers. Sit down now Mr. Bovard, take a deep draw on that Blatz Beer and Churchill, exhale, take another draw on the Blatz then steady your
    nerves. Here it is: Percentage of Obama Administration Cabinet Appointees who have had any Experience in the Private World (some might aver this to be the real world but I seen unreal private too): 8%….yes, thats less than 10% of these wankers have ever held a real job. As a misunderstood child, we used to tire of these kinds of class room didactic sociopaths once in a while and tail them to the local Albertsons whereupon we would shove a rotten potato in their mouths to stifle the screams while we buried them in the dumpster. Metaphorically speaking of course.

    I’ve heard some remarks on Faux News claiming that this report is providing the “terrorists” with “targeting data”. I read the articles and looked at the website, but didn’t find anything specific enough for targeting. So I don’t know what they’re referring to.

    I thought it was interesting that one of their big complexes is called “Liberty Crossing”. I wonder if it is called that as sarcasm or it’s due to a staggering lack of self-awareness. Or maybe it’s some sort of inside joke.

    I had the same response to “Liberty Crossing.” Always a bad thing to curse that much at the breakfast table.

    Dirk, – 8% eh? Well, maybe that explains why few of them seem to be familiar with supply and demand, except as something to be conquered by Benevolent sonuvaguns like themselves.

    I can understand why you put those sociopaths into dumpsters – but why did you ever let them out?
