Why are you constantly working to undermine the government's ability to protect US citizens from terrorist attacks?We aren't, that's your version of "have you stopped beating your wife?". We believe US citizens can be protected from terrorists at the same time as ensuring those protective measures are subject to oversight and due process.Counter question: why are you willing to give up oversight and due process?What do you have against your own friends and neighbors that you want to expose them to the danger of terrorist attacks?Sheesh. More "have you stopped beating your wife".Counter question: do you think your friends and neighbors will be best served by an unaccountable executive?What do you have against your own country, the country of your birth or the country that you chose to come to, that you would stand in the way of her right to defend herself?Counter question (because yours doesn't deserve a response): why do you believe that an unaccountable executive would have the best interests of this country at heart?Why are the rights of despicable terrorists who have pledged to kill us all so much more important to you than the safety and wellbeing of your fellow citizens?Easy: because maybe the "despicable terrorist" you have captured is actually an innocent peace protestor from Pennsylvania. With an unaccountable executive, you can never be sure.Counter question: why are you willing to give up your own ability to question your government? If Bill Clinton were able to run again, he'd be elected by a landslide. What would you say then?Why does the sight of a woman leading a terrorist around with a dog leash horrify you so much more than the sight of terrorists sawing off the heads of innocent civilians?It doesn't, that's more of your fiction. But in case you forgot, we are supposed to hold ourselves to a higher standard.Counter question: why are you willing to let our society to devolve to the level of our enemy?Whose side are you on?Truth, justice, open and accountable government.Do you think these questions are unfair?Yep, they're based on unfounded assertions.Well, too bad. Because they are going to be asked again and again and again and again and again between now and 2006 and 2008.No doubt. If you can't argue with your enemy's real point, just accuse them of something terrible, whether or not it's true:(whisper whisper) See that kid next to John McCain? She's his illegitimate black child!
