Back in April, the legendary Bard of Des Moines featured the shooting script for “Red Scare”, a proposed (fictitious and satiric) documentary featuring Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. It began:
"It Could Happen Here!"
A PRESENTATION OF THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
JANET NAPOLITANO, DIRECTOR
IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
AND THE HOUSE ANTI-TAX ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE
AN IOWAHAWK EDUCATIONAL FILMS PRODUCTION
The story you are about to see is true. Or, at least, could be true. At this very moment dangerous subversive extremist elements are infiltrating our communities and schools, bent on destroying our American Way of Life. These are the shadowy forces of International Constitutionalism. Agents from the Department of Homeland Security are on the trail of these nefarious Red State saboteurs, but it will take a vigilant public - including ordinary high school students like you - to help bring them to justice before it's too late. Only with your help can we preserve the American Way!
-- Janet A. Napolitano
Today, The Hill screams, “Grayson: Republicans are ‘the enemy of America'”:
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) fired his latest salvo at Republicans on Wednesday evening, calling them “the enemy of America.”
The congressman, who gained attention for saying the GOP’s health plan is for the ill to “die quickly,” made his remark in response to Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tenn.) comment today warning the Obama administration to not draft a Nixonian “enemies list.”
Grayson said on MSNBC that the GOP is the enemy of anybody who wants “anything good for this country,” including healthcare reform, climate change legislation and “certainly the enemy of peace.”
Stock up your global warming shelter with plenty of tofu and be prepared to go underground at a moment’s notice. The shadowy forces of International Constitutionalism, those nefarious Red State saboteurs are everywhere!
