An American Witticism

Posted on April 11, 2006


This really gayed me out…it transpires that the USA PATRIOT Act is an acronym. It’s an acronym for the United and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act. It’s not even smooth, people. I can only imagine the horrified looks on the faces of democratic congressmen when this little gem was announced. It must have taken the greatest exercise of diplomacy to debate this doozy, and to be known thereafter as having agreed to this insult to literacy. I mean, voting for great human rights abuses is one thing, but voting to name those abuses something so lame is quite another.
