Stay tuned as the president mounts his bully pulpit tomorrow in time for his last State of the Union Address, and keep in mind that, behind the scenes, he is strongarming Congress to include retroactive immunity, from future litigation, for telecoms that handed over their customers' personal phone records to the NSA. 

In his eleventh hour, 43 is working hard to ensure that any legislation passed on his watch is not merely waterproof, but tamper-proof, as well, and he will open the flood gates of hell rather than allow for any margin of error. Implicit in these incipient histrionic trailers of legacy is malpractice insurance for the executive branch.

George W. Bush who has brazenly, and unabashedly, threatened any global health facility that endorses the use of condoms as a means of protection against the spread of HIV/AIDS is now bullying Congress to pass a measure that provides a ubiquitous corporate condom to protect future Fortune 500s.

Make no mistake, the so-called "Protect America Act" was not designed to protect this country, but instead those corporate cronies whose ongoing sodomy of the First Amendment President Bush enthusiastically endorses. And, somebody needs to tell this legislator-in-chief the era of corporate protectionism won't outlast him.

Any White House that threatens to use the veto this much clearly mistakes it for Viagra.
