"I have no problem with any of the substantive
criticism of Obama from the right or left. But something very dangerous is happening. Criticism
from the far right has begun tipping over into delegitimation and creating the same kind of climate here

might draw from these vitriolic attacks a license to try to hurt the president, you have to be

Excerpt: The Supreme Court says it will take up a challenge
to Chicago's ban on handguns, opening the way for
a ruling that could set off a vigorous new campaign
to roll back state and local gun controls across the nation.
Victory for gun-rights proponents in the Chicago
case is considered likely, even by supporters of gun control,
in the latest battle in the nation's long and
often bitter dispute over the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
A ruling against the city's outright ban could
lead to legal challenges to less-restrictive laws across the country that
who can own guns, whether firearms must be registered
and how they should be stored.
The case is to be argued early next year.
Last year, the justices struck down a prohibition
on handguns in the District of Columbia, a city with unique federal status,
as a violation of the Second Amendment. Now they
will decide whether that ruling should apply to local and state laws as
This is all the loons need to put guns on the streets- en masse.
"I can't stand listening to whiny Democrats

You know, you've got to admire Republicans. They have the courage of their convictions. They put it right
out there. When they want to do something, they do it. They don't go, 'Oh, I don't know if we should invade
Iraq. People might not like that.' They don't care. They just do it. What is wrong with our side of the
aisle? Where is the spine, where is the courage? 'They might filibuster.' Really? Let them filibuster. I'd like

Excerpt: Conservatives were quick to insist that the near-riot
- the first of many town-hall mobs that would dominate
the headlines in August - was completely spontaneous.
The protesters didn't show up "because of some organized group,"
Rick Scott, the head of Conservatives for Patients'
Rights, told reporters. "They're mad about the stimulus bill, the bailout,
the economy. Now they see that their health care
is about to be taken over by the government."
In fact, Scott's own group had played an integral
role in mobilizing the protesters. According to internal documents obtained
by Rolling Stone, Conservatives for Patients'
Rights had been working closely for weeks as a "coalition partner" with
other right-wing groups in a plot to unleash
irate mobs at town-hall meetings just like Doggett's.
Far from representing a spontaneous upwelling
of populist rage, the protests were tightly orchestrated from the top down
by corporate-funded front groups as well as top
lobbyists for the health care industry. Call it the return of the Karl
The effort to mobilize the angriest fringe of
the Republican base was guided by a conservative dream team that included
GOP henchmen who Swift-boated John Kerry in 2004,

the health care reform effort led by Hillary Clinton in 1993.

The 52 Funniest
Things About The Upcoming Death of The Pope by Matt Taibbi in 2005, just before the last Pope died
Excerpt: 52. Pope pisses himself just before the
end; gets all over nurse.
51. After death, saggy, furry tits of dead
Pope begin melting like Sno-cones under the sun.
50. Pope survives just long enough to be acquired
by Isiah Thomas for Stephon Marbury and cash considerations.
49. After beating for the last time, Pope's
heart sits there like a piece of hamburger.
Item: Matt Taibbi, liberal hero, writes this
Is this somebody we want on our team?
Sidebar: I could excuse him if he was a victim
of priest rape...
Clarification: *I* was never molested by anyone,
nor was anyone close to me a Catholic victim.

my words, it's because I don't f-ing like bullies.
48. Whole world waiting until the last minute
for a sudden improvement of his condition. Pope gives one last groan, spits,
47. Upon death, Pope's face frozen in sickening
smile, eyes wide open and teeth exposed, like a baboon.
46. Beetles eating Pope's dead brains.

Excerpt: The Vatican has lashed out at criticism over
its handling of its paedophilia crisis by saying the Catholic church was
"busy cleaning its own house" and that the problems
with clerical sex abuse in other churches were as big, if not bigger.
In a defiant and provocative statement, the Holy
See said the majority of Catholic clergy who committed such acts
were not pedophiles but homosexuals attracted
to sex with adolescent males.
Oh no you did n't! Oh no you did n't!
"It wasn't rape, it was merely an erection
rectal insertion! They weren't really pedophiles - they

Net Neutrality is a liberal issue, brought about
when Comcast and other companies wanted to control the content

thought that would be cool, as it could lead to corporate control
of internet media and the strangulation of independent

It's not about the government deciding what goes
across networks, it's about stopping corporate network gatekeepers
from selling access to the highest bidder. Without

Excerpt: The US government has relaxed its control over
how the internet is run.
It has signed a four-page "affirmation of commitments"
with the net regulator Icann,
giving the body autonomy for the first time.
Previous agreements gave the US close oversight
of Icann - drawing criticism from other countries and groups.
The new agreement comes into effect on 1 October,
exactly 40 years since the first two computers
were connected on the prototype of the net.
"It's a beautifully historic day," Rod Beckstrom,
Icann's head, told BBC News.
The European Commission, which has long been critical
of Icann's alliance with the US government,
welcomed the new deal.
"Internet users worldwide can now anticipate that
Icann's decisions...will be more independent and
more accountable, taking into account everyone's
interests," said Viviane Reding, European Commissioner
for information society and media.

they would appeal and seek to withhold the documents
until the matter is resolved.
The Plame leak touched off a lengthy inquiry that
led to Cheney's aide, Scooter Libby, being convicted of obstruction of
and lying to investigators. During his trial,
jurors found that Libby lied to the FBI and a grand jury about his conversations
Libby told the FBI in 2003 that it was possible

trial that there was a "cloud" over Cheney's role in the case.
