What is it about the Unique Power of Three?
Third time's a charm? Three's a crowd?
Is it the short form of the Big Lie?
Well, way back in my days with the Women's International Terrorist Conspiracy from Hell (had I forgotten to mention that, dear?) the mantric formula for membership consisted of a three-fold chant -- "I am a W.I.T.C.H., I am a W.I.T.C.H., I am a W.I.T.C.H.! -- and poof! The deed was doned.
Who knows, but there is certainly something very special about three if you're a Bushist fascist with the Great Egg of Torture all over your face (and what's that other sticky stuff there, dear? No dont tell me.).
If one asserts a fact thrice, it becometh fact, for those who create their own realitiez.
Except, some uppity judges think that that's really stupid.
They're so uppity they make, like, literary references 'n stuf.
As in --
The Hunting of the Snark
"Just the place for a Snark!" the Bellman cried,
As he landed his crew with care;
Supporting each man on the top of the tide
By a finger entwined in his hair.
"Just the place for a Snark! I have said it twice:
That alone should encourage the crew.
Just the place for a Snark! I have said it thrice:
What I tell you three times is true."
The three-member court was particularly pointed in its criticism of the argument that says s evidence is reliable because it appears multiple times.
"The government insists that the statements made in the documents are reliable because the State and Defense Departments would not have put them in intelligence documents were that not the case. This comes perilously close to saying that whatever the government says must be treated as true.
Lewis Carroll notwithstanding, the fact that the government 'said it thrice' does not make an allegation true."
COURT: GITMO LOGIC NONSENSE
Does this mean someone's starting to wake up from the long Bushist fascist nightmare? God, one hopes so.
But on the downside, here's another hammer to the ankles of Unity Pony: A New Campaign Charge: You Supported Clinton.
Yet on the upside, there's Two Great Men Stand Up For Marriage.
