President Obama's stacking of the Justice Department with lawyers drawn from the RIAA had left me mystified. What does he need the most experienced hirable extortionists on the planet for? His continuing failure to prosecute the torturing murderers from the previous administration had left me similarly mystified.

All I can conclude is that the torturing murderers have some means to sabotage Obama's administration, and it is only by holding out the threat of prosecution that he is able to control them. The extortionist lawyers, then, are being kept busy preparing airtight cases against the torturers to threaten them with. Since there's no statute of limitations on murder (many of the tortured were actually tortured to death), the cases may be used any time in the future. At least I hope that's what's going on. Maybe, instead, the spooks are extorting Obama with the threat of such sabotage, and have forced him to hire their extortionist pals and to abjure prosecution. The public evidence supports either scenario.

On a happier note, the best implementation on Youtube, since the original, of Daft Bodies is at -_q8ojxtVB4. It's curiously difficult to find this one by searching. To do Daft Bodies well must be much harder than it seems, seeing how frequently it's done badly (and posted), and seeing just how badly it's done.
