Hard Choices

It's so difficult being an authoritative empire instead of a democracy. It requires hard choices. Take, for example, the Bush administration's newest iteration of a trial system for Guantanamo prisoners. At bottom, this sort of thing, where even the prosecutors and judges are in open rebellion, leaves the White House with only two fundamental choices. One of them is to trash the First Amendment along with all of those other thingys in the Constitution that are so Pre-9-11.
