First things first: Thank you, Edward Snowden. You made a few more people care that we pawned away some valuable shit that might be tough to get back. (There was some panic buying on Feeling Safer, can you blame us?) Now, maybe our rights, our privacy, and the abuse of secrecy will become, gasp, issues debated in Congress. Anything’s possible!
Now then: Fuck you, Edward Snowden, ur doing it wrong. Yr Wonkette can think of between several and a lot of ways you could have revealed how the NSA is involved in some stuff that all citizens deserve to be informed about, but are not. For example: If we were you, we would have left out your latest “revelation” about how the US is doing spy things in China (cyberly) to gain “access to the communications of hundreds of thousands of computers.”
Because seriously Edward Snowden, were you born yesterday? Of what possible use is this information to the civil libertarians you have so righteously stoked, especially considering that “we spy on China” is the most laughable corruption of the word “secret” we can think of this instant? It’s even less surprising than “The NSA is playing Hungry Hungry Hippos with all the electronic metadata.”
