I Know, Let’s Have A Show [Trial]

It’s kind of like those old Mickey Rooney & Judy Garland films, there’s a problem, well we’ll just have a show and solve it with the money. The concept was then “borrowed” for The Blues Brothers.

Given the current state of disaster facing the final year of the Shrubbery, instead of a borrowing from Rooney & Garland to raise money for the multi-trillion dollar deficit, the Hedgemony has decided to borrow from the well known team of Stalin & Beria to stage a show trial. There’s no bread available so they’ll stage a circus, complete with the possibility of death.

This would have been more impressive if Colonel Morris Davis hadn’t stepped down as chief prosecutor for the military commissions at Guantánamo because he felt the process was politicized. I’m going to accept Colonel Davis’s opinion of the proceedings, and call them show trials.

I’d characterize the ‘show’ as more of a ‘show’ like the Little Rascals of Our Gang would put on. The only question is who will play the character of Alfalfa?

These trials will be a farce; I just hope they don’t start executing before a new president hopefully puts a stop to it.

Someone needs to stop it, because it is a crime, in and of itself.

And they’re gonna put the “20th hijacker” on trial. Question is, which one? Haven’t they identified, like, five or six different men as the “20th hijacker” at different times?! Wait, no, I just Googled it and there’s FOURTEEN “20th hijackers” that have been identified at various times. Whoa, that’s a lot of 20th hijackers! That woulda been one crowded plane if all of those 20th hijackers had got on board, eh?!

This is farce, Kafka as written by the Marx Brothers.

There are at least as many twentieth hijackers, as there are al Qaeda number 3s, and they claim to have caught a dozen of each, or at least found a dozen or more to confess to those acts and positions.

Beria would be proud of their accomplishments.
