July 4, Government

(no subject)

The White House has a comment line:

212-456-1111

I have just called it for the first time in my life to express my displeasure with the Lewis Libby commutation. They'll ask you what state you're from, then take your comments, then say thank you.

My comments, roughly (I didn't write it out beforehand): "I found the Lewis Libby commutation deplorable, and thought it showed a shocking lack of accountability and responsibility."

I encourage all of you to do the same.

And please, no jokes about how they're now going to send the NSA/IRS/CIA/82nd Airborne after me. I genuinely struggled with that kind of paranoia for a while before deciding to speak out anyway.
