Almost every American knows that Thomas Jefferson was the principal
author of the Declaration of Independence, which effectively gave
birth to the United States of America.
But what Homeland Fascist was a principal author of
the Patriot Act, which effectively polished off the Great Experiment
in ordered liberty?
Correctamundo! It's Gut-Check Chertoff.
Only 8 days after the September 11, 2001 attacks, Chertoff and
Assistant Attorney General Viet D. Dinh had the 342-page Patriot Act
written, printed, bound, and sitting on the desk of every member of
Congress. From these facts alone, dear Watson, we can reasonably
deduce several standard deductions, depending on your state's tax
1. Michael Chertoff can sho' nuff type fast.
2. There's gotta be a 24-hour Kinko's in the basement of the
3. If you mail the anthrax about two days before introducing your
342-page legislation with lots of boring stuff on pages 9-11, NOBODY's
gonna get to the part where you eradicate a nation's cherished
liberties, and NOBODY's going to notice how much you plagiarized from
the Reichstag Fire Decree.
(Bonus points: "USA PATRIOT Act" is an acronym. What's the full name
of the law? The answer's at the end of this post...)
