Quick Hits: Dept. of Justice and HSBC say “Bite me”

Because I believe a writer can write in many styles, I’m converting these Quick Hits into a total Atrionic exercise — doing the Atrios minimalist thing. Least words, most clickitude. Case in point, this re HSBC and drug laundering. Matt Taibbi (h/t Twitter buddy @MiroCollas):

If you’ve ever been arrested on a drug charge, if you’ve ever spent even a day in jail for having a stem of marijuana in your pocket or “drug paraphernalia” in your gym bag, Assistant Attorney General and longtime Bill Clinton pal Lanny Breuer has a message for you: Bite me.

Go for it; click if you dare. The writer Masaccio has more here. Also, too, Chris.

(See? I can write short too.)

    You are obeying the Obama administration and the cooperators of the Obama administration as if they care about what you are talking about.

    The Obama administration is the continuation of the Clinton administration.

    The murders of small children is about the Clinton and Obama administration. They are about the murder of small children.

    They are also about propping up “the terrorists”. as are the Republicans.

    There is no way to talk about the Obama or Clinton adminsitrations as if they care IN ANY FORM about violence. They are about wielding violence and they are about crocadile tears.

    Then there’s the Upper Market thesis. :)

    Yes. There is a happy medium between Castro-length analysis and Twitter like snippets. I like a little more infomration before clicking through to anything.

    Oops. :)

    Not to worry, there’s more long-form in the works. Thanks!

    I stopped reading Atrios because of his style. I switched to Americablog for the commentary and analysis.
