Talking Out Of His Ashcroft

From Netscape News: Ashcroft Resigns

John Ashcroft tendered his letter of resignation today, creating in the process what is sure to be one of the most oft-quoted lines by us lefty bloggers-cum-comedians in the next few days.

Writing to Bush, Ashcroft said: "The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved.''

Well, fuck me! No wonder the Republicans got re-elected!

Actually, the Ashcroft quote is being taken out of context; the Attorney General was, in fact, in the midst of making an homage to Wayne's World.

Tomorrow: the hilarious vagaries of life in Tennessee! (Oh, Adrienne, how you're going to cringe.)
