What a Coincidence

The Dept. of Justice is embroiled in a big scandal, and folks high and low are calling for the Attorney General to resign. Surprise! The White House suddenly gets results.

Why now? Do I need to ask? That's why they're keeping all these people detained indefinitely. Ironically, locked up down in Cuba, they work like get-out-of-jail-free cards for the administration. Something goes wrong? Leak a confession. In deep legal shit? Find another terrorist plot. Everyone hates you? OK, it's not a perfect system. It is, however, a whole lot better than that awkward, color-coded terror alert scheme, which, you know, scared the hell out of everyone and often backfired. It's also a whole lot more reliable than the administration's most recent go-to distraction.
