Rewarding High Treason

Today is Tuesday, 7 August 2007.

And now, a cringing, crass, and craven Congress has rewarded Bush’s crime with a new law … ‘OK, you can overthrow the Constitution for six more months, but then we reconsider’.

Once upon a time, overthrowing the Constitution was high treason.

The punctuation " " means direct quotation.

' ' means paraphrase.

And, to gild the lily, King George and Co. act as if they agree with King Richard Milhouse: "If the President does it, it means it's not illegal."
