Saniora: Straitjacket Time
From the The Daily Star, National Dependence Day 2007, our very own PM:
Siniora assures Lebanese security under control
Premier Fouad Siniora [Sanioura] said Wednesday in a speech to mark Lebanon's Independence Day that "the Lebanese can [be assured] that their national and daily security is being safeguarded, and their institutions are functioning well."
With a deadlocked presidential election and hours to go, with parliament shut down for over a year, and with empty benches on the supreme court, and with people worried sick about their future, our "institutions are functioning well"?
Is there a word for this manure other than: "$*^!$% STRAITJACKET?"
