Killer Tomato Sunstein to oversee NSA. Yup, that'll work out well for the Digital Stasi. He's one of their own.

I've written several times before about the Killer Tomato Cass Sunstein, from my original post in April 2009 to this post in 2012 and this one from earlier this year.
Now Tyler Durden fills us in on the latest job of this Killer Tomato: "Obama Picks Cass Sunstein (America’s Goebbels?) To Serve On NSA Oversight Panel." He quotes the Washington Post:
The Obama administration is reportedly proposing Cass Sunstein as a member of a panel to review the surveillance practices of the National Security Agency (NSA), among other former White House and intelligence staffers. Sunstein was the head of the White House’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs until last year, when he returned to teaching at Harvard Law School.
While at Harvard in 2008, Sunstein co-authored a working paper that suggests government agents or their allies “cognitively infiltrate” conspiracy theorist groups by joining ”chat rooms, online social networks or even real-space groups” and influencing the conversation.
The paper also suggests that the government “formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech.” That sounds an awful lot like the 50 Cent Party of online commentators who are paid per comment by the Chinese communist party to sway public opinion.
Oh, yeah, he'll be a great one to oversee the Digital Stasi. After all, he's one of their own.

Really, they intend to leave us only one solution.

Well, Obama could round out this exclusive board with Susan Rice, Josh Horwitz and Jesse Jackson Jr.. That should lend some real credibility to this sucked egg.

Well, he told us that we would be able to tell what kind of president he is by the people he surrounds himself with.

Nuff said.

When I think of Sunstein I inevitably face a conundrum;

What would be the appropriate caliber for the firing squad when executing this traitor?

Vegas Dave,
Something small and non-lethal. After all, you only want to "nudge" in the direction you want him to go - death. Especially if it takes multiple rounds.

(If you have Cass Sunstein at a firing squad, charge admission. You'll make a fortune even when he's dead.)

Leaves you with a warm and fuzzy feeling, eh?

"Only under the Obama Presidency, in which every appointment, minor or major, is handed only to the most corrupt, devious crony to be found, can a man like Cass Sunstein be appointed to serve on the NSA oversight panel."

Well, that was kinda silly, I think. All presidencies are like this. The ruling class is filled with psychopaths. There are no good people there.

BTW here is a good article on dealing with the kind of internet provocateurs that Sunstein thinks is such a great idea:

You don't waste good ammo on a piece of shit traitor, unless you're in a hurry. Ropes are reusable and clean up with soap and water.
