Excerpt: Never mind the Constitution, the Geneva Conventions

about POWs rotting away at Guantánamo
Bay concentration camp, right-wingers' concerns are purely practical.
We are talking, of course, about AG Eric Holder's
decision to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in Manhattan,
within walking distance of the World Trade Center
Memorial Hole, which marks America's resilience...
I don't refer to Mohammed as "9/11 mastermind."
Unlike most Americans, I don't believe that something is true
just because the government says it. Until a
jury and the media examine the facts, we have no idea whether Mohammed
is guilty of anything. As far as we know, he
could be nothing more than a poster child for Pakistani bed-head. Moreover,
my distrust multiplies in direct proportion to
the number times a suspect has been waterboarded (in KSM's case, at least
Anyway, it's interesting to watch "law and order"
conservatives like Rudy Giuliani talk away basic legal rights like habeas
"Mohammad should be tried in a military tribunal,"
Giuliani says, "He is a war criminal. This is an act of war."
No, Mr. Mayor, he's not.
And this is no war. Had an actual war been declared,
a nation-state would have attacked us. 9/11 was a criminal act, and a terrible
mass murder, air piracy and property damage.
Until Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is tried and convicted in a court of law,
however he is
an alleged criminal, innocent until proven guilty.
Where'd this Giuliani guy go to law school, Wal-Mart?
"What weíre experiencing now is really a ticking
time bomb that they designed about 100 years ago, beginning in the progressive movement.
And they thought, "you know what, if we just do this and this and this and this, over time if we
do it in both the Republican and Democratic parties, we will have our socialist utopia." Well, I am drafting
plans now to bring us back to an America that our founders would understand...We need to start
thinking like the Chinese." -- Glenn
"Did any provision of the Constitution guarantee
a right to abortion? Did any provision in the Constitution
guarantee a right to homosexual sodomy? Same answer."
Well, did any provision of the Constitution guarantee
nine seats on the Supreme Court?
Did any provision of the Constitution end slavery?
Did any provision of the Constitution allow women
That's why we have the Court, and why we have
The Constitution--including its amendments--has
very little in the way of specific guarantees.
It does, however, limit what Government can do

ensuring the government does not ban abortion
and does not ban homosexual sodomy.
Maybe if Scalia's wife would introduce him to sodomy he'd calm down.
Excerpt: Glenn Beck, the outspoken Fox News handjob, says
he wants to go beyond broadcasting his opinions
and start rallying his political base - formerly
known as his audience - to take action.
In an interview, he said he would promote voter
registration drives and sponsor a series of seven conventions
across the country featuring what he described
as libertarian speakers.
On Saturday he held a festive campaign-style rally
north of Orlando, in which he promoted his book, "Arguing With Idiots,"
and announced another book to come next August
filled with right-leaning policy proposals gathered from the conventions.
Beck provided few details about his plans for
the tour, making it unclear if he truly intends to prod his audience
of millions into political action or merely burnish
his media brand ahead of a book release.
Beck did say the conventions would resemble educational
seminars, ha ha
and he emphasized that while candidates
may align themselves with the values and principles
that he espouses, he would not take the next step to endorse them.
Now that Bishop Thomas Tobin has banned Patrick
Kennedy from receiving communion because he's supports
a woman's right to control her own reproduction,
I have a question for him. Are you willing to deny communion to

The way I see it, it's people like you who make
me say, "Thank God I'm an Atheist".
So - prove me wrong. I challenge you.
Should priests who rape children also be denied

Excerpt Obama is on a short leash at this point. His
fans, and I was one of those who was willing to give him a shot last November,
are mostly giving up on him. Activists are already

for Obama full time now writes angry letters
almost weekly to Obama's former campaign manager David Plouffe and others,

The question journalists repeatedly asked last
week - What are Palinís plans for 2012? - is a red herring. Palin has no
obligation to answer it. She is the pit bull
in the china shop of American politics, and she can do what she wants,
own timeline, all the while raking in the big
bucks she couldnít as a sitting governor. No one, least of all her own
party, can control her...
Culture is politics. Palin is at the red-hot center
of age-old American resentments that have boiled up both from the ascent
of our first black president and from the intractability
of the Great Recession for those Americans who haven't benefited
from bailouts. As Palin thrives on the ire of
the left, so she does from the disdain of GOP leaders who belittle her
as a lightweight.
The only person who can derail Palin is Palin
herself. Should she not self-destruct, she will doom GOP hopes of a 2012
But the rest of the country cannot rest easy.
The rage out there is larger than Palin and defies partisan labeling.
Pants should be worn in public,
not used a a foot-warmer.

Excerpt: Anyone who has tried to fathom the Palin phenomenon
is eventually surprised that she bothers to speak at all.
But she loves talking, to the delight of her
fans and to the utter befuddlement of anyone who regards languge
as a serious medium of communication.
Words are not Sarah Palinís currency, nor would
she command her immense army of ardent followers if she had
a ďway with words.Ē When asked about ďissues,Ē
Palin either recites an irrelevant aspect of her biography (looking across
the Bering Strait at Vladimir Putin, covering
high school hockey games for the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman), or she rattles
a mind-numbing series of talking points, seemingly
memorized off a laminated card handed to her by Grover Norquist.
Asked about any domestic problem - education,
unemployment, breast cancer, etc. - she advocates cutting taxes.
Given problems of a more metaphysical nature,
she will come around to invoking Jesus...
There are no lies in Sarahís book; nor in her
life, nor in her heart. Utterances that seem untrue are not lies, because
believes them true. If she says one thing, then
later forgets what she said and says the opposite, Sarah Palin is neither
nor mistaken, nor forgetful, because at each
moment, she believes what she has said. And a minute later, she will believe
something else, if she says it. Whatever she
says, if she says it, will be true. But if itís not, so what? Itís words,
Sooner or later, words fail everyone. This goes
double for Sarah and her faithful.
Sarah Palin is the voice - and the embodiment
- of the inarticulate.

I don't doubt Bush and co. sat on their asses
when they could've prevented 9/11, but the person writing you
about laser weapons and holographic plane images
needs to lay off the acid. Could she actually use reliable
sources to determine this? Occam's razor
means nothing to these people.
I'm not sure Occam's razor applies to the CIA

They can murder anyone, even
the president, and then blame whatever patsy is standing nearby.
When people make all these claims about how it's
"not possible" for huge planes to destroy a building designed
to handle far smaller, slower planes, it's important
to ask them how it feels to oppose the scientific consensus.
That's why I was so disappointed in the 9-11 program.
Instead of asking pointed questions to rational
scientists, they talked to angry mobs, instead.
Their intention was to ridicule anyone who disagrees
with Lee Hamilton's Whitewash.
Dems are the party of science and logic, and it
should stay that way.
I hate Bush as much as anyone does, but there's
no need to exaggerate his role in wrecking the entire world.
It just hurts our side, just like "progressives"
who support Ron Paul without bothering to check his voting record.

Excerpt: On Friday, Radar online revealed that the sex
tape Carrie Prejean has called "the worst mistake of my life" was in fact
a series of 8 explicit videos and 30 lewd photos
all self-produced by the publicity whore. TMZ says that Vivid
has offered Prejean "millions of dollars" for
the right to distribute "erotic footage that Carrie Prejean produced in
Meanwhile, the boyfriend told reporters that he
received a call last week from Carrie's reps asking him to lie and say
publicity whore was 17 when the tapes were created.
Though it would be awfully convenient for Prejean's camp if she was
actually underage in these vids--she'd be a minor
and it would be illegal to show them--but she was 19 and 20.
Her sex tape doesn't really hurt anybody. However,
it does become dangerous when there's massive hypocrisy involved,
when the slut who made the porn is also trying
to make money off being a highly moral public face of Christian values.
It's also a problem when this same young woman
is holding herself up as a role model for young girls and suing for
religious discrimination when she seems to be
faking or at least badly following, her religiousness.
Here's the deal: Those tapes ARE coming out, with or without
her permission. If she agrees to settle for
a big chunk of cash, she makes the money AND can exercise some form
of control over their distribution.
If she doesn't agree to a deal, those tapes are coming out (from an
with a revenge theme guaranteed to put her in the worst possible light,

Her options are limited, but that's what happens

I've seen Dylan over the years since 1979, and
have gradually come to the following conclusions.
1. Dylan hasn't given a straight answer
to an interview question since 1961. It's all a put-on to him.
2. As a rock vocalist, he actually was good
from 1964-76. Since then, not so much.
3. The songs he sings clearly are the only
ones he cares about. The rest are deliberately sabotaged
as part of his running joke on his audience.
One of his best overall performances was on his gospel tour of 1979,
when he sang not a single one of his earlier
songs, but had a crack band and really took care with the unfamiliar material.
4. Bob's only out there to entertain himself.
For crying out loud, he doesn't need the money.
His songs are so widely covered, he never needs
to step on a stage again.
Subject: Dylan concert review
Hey Bart, I had to laugh at your take on the Bob
Dylan concert you attended.
He can sing clearly, and on key if he feels like
it, but anyone who has followed
his career at all could tell you he rarely has
ever felt like it.
He is no doubt a great songwriter. He is also
never been a good live performer.
Iíve seen him on stage with some of the great
musicians like Clapton etc.
and itís still somewhat painful listening to
him get through his part.
He is an icon and I think well deserved, but the
about going to see him live is being able to
say you did.
Bill from CT
It would appear Bob's primary gift is his choice of words.
Maybe he should write books and let the live concert trail grow cold.
