Just A Semblance Of Due Process, Please

The Bush administration, in their pursuit of moral values and worldwide democratic principles, has decided to detain for life any one they suspect of terrorism but whom they cannot prove legally has any involvement with terrorism. Let's see, people who cannot be shown to be terrorists...that would be pretty much everyone! In short, if they don't have a case against you, you go to jail forever!

Republican Senator Richard Lugar called this "a bad idea." He's using a form of comedy called "understatement." Ha ha! A bad idea! Funny Lugar!

Carl Levin, the top Democrat on the Senate Armed Services Committee, really hits hard on this one though:
"There must be some modicum, some semblance of due process … if you're going to detain people, whether it's for life or whether it's for years,"
Yes, just a modicum or semblance. A semblance would be best, I think. That's strong opposition party politics, Mr. Levin, calling for a semblance of justice! Maybe you should rethink your position and tone it down a little!!!! How about a mime of due process? A parody of it? Anything but a semblance!!!
