So Tom Ridge and his flock of geniuses over at Homeland Security have announced that Al Qaeda seems to be planning some sort of major terrorist attack in the U.S., and that “They want to do something spectacular.”

Holy shit! How much do we pay these wizards to tell us what we already knew? I mean, this is like the National Weather Service announcing that there’s a credible chance of a hurricane hitting the U.S. sometime this year: it’s obviously true, a little bit scary, and totally useless.

Gosh, I’m glad we spend our taxes on this crap instead of actually defending ourselves.
