In a startling show of brinkmanship (so-called "sulfur diplomacy"), the commander-in-chief down there today offered a compromise to all those around the world still sitting on the fence:  

The more you act up and misbehave on Earth, the better I'll treat you in hell and the more rights you'll have as my prisoners.


Some of you wussies are right on the line between making it to heaven but, for some laughable reason, don't pass judgement.

Well... let's just say you didn't do me many favors. That said, even you will have some rights: officially henceforth, you shall carry the title "Enemy Combatant"  (and when I say "carry the title" I'm serious- the damn thing weighs about 400pounds)

When questioned about Bush, he pointed out that

[...] the way it looks now, the man will have the full rights of a prisoner and will be treated with a certain degree of respect. Perhaps I'll make him repeat "lessons of 9/11" for all eternity or something nice in that regard. That seemed to be something he really got a kick out of doing on Earth, so I'm sure he'll be "down" with that.

Shortly after making the last statement, he asked "Get it? I said I'm sure he'll be down with that. HAA! HA! HAA! disappeared with a roaring laugh into a puff of smoke.  

We now ask our readers: why was the devil so confident? This is how a few of them have so far responded...

Thou shalt not make wrongful use of the name of thy God.

  1. Please, stop claiming someone called "God" told you to invade a foreign country. - Johnson in Iowa

Thou shalt not steal

  1. No more blood for oil. - dude from Oklahoma

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor

  1. Confession of responsibility on the outing of Valerie Plame - Freddy Fergesson

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house

  1. Some call them the elite... in any case, most of them are people who got where they are by coveting their neighbors' houses. Remove these people from your "base". - anonymous in Amarillo

Are we edging closer to a moment in the near future where someone breaks down and has a teary-eyed confession like this-

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Restore constitutional government in America. Impeach Bush and Cheney.

    Heck, we could balance the budget with this:

    $1000 to bitch-slap the Prez, Veep & Condi

    $500 for other Cabinet members and high-ranking Congresscritters

    $100 for garden-variety Congressfolk

    Special rates for ex-military, those forced to live in environmentally unsound neighborhoods, the elderly, and those in blue states.  Those who paid money to campaigns would be barred from bitch-slapping their payees.

    One per customer, no transfers, please.

    Maybe the possibility of having to actually pay for the privilege of making up stupid, selfish laws would make our friendly neighborhood Congresscreature think twice or even thrice.
