Thanks a lot, dip-shit.
Alea iacta est
Fact: Conservatives have been saying for 8 years that the McCain-Feingold “Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002" was unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds.
Fact: This week, the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 decision, ruled that the McCain-Feingold “Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002? was unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds.
Fact: Democrats / Liberals / Leftists from Obama on down are screaming bloody murder.
He is increasingly perceived as having credibility problems and of being cold, cocksure, narcissistic and intoxicated by what he modestly called ‘the gift’ of his own articulation. And as president, he has been quite, and quite surprisingly, incompetent. . . . It has been a year of fecklessness, amateurism, and posturing. Less that is useful has been accomplished by this president in his first year than by any president since Herbert Hoover.
See, here's the thing: this comes as no surprise to me, nor to most people who voted against him in '08. This characterization is exactly what I perceived and is one reason I didn't vote for him.
I wonder if any people who didn't see it before are seeing it now.
The election of Barack Obama was a fundamentally unserious act by the U.S. electorate, and you can't blame the world's mischief-makers, from Putin to Ahmadinejad to the many Gitmo recidivists now running around Yemen, from drawing the correct conclusion.
Regardless of his successes or failures, Obama will enter history like FDR: those who loved him can see no wrong, and those who didn't can see no right.
Recently neutered Christmas panty-bomber has been indicted:
A six-count indictment handed down Wednesday charges Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, attempted murder and other charges.
Six counts, huh? That seems like a lot, so like liberal critics of Bush's reasons to go to war against Iraq, I think I'll just ignore five of them and concentrate on WMDs.
If the investigation doesn't find fully-staffed and funded WMD labs and turn-key delivery systems in Abdulmutallab's underwear, then the entire case will fail and I'll have to march in the streets proclaiming his innocence.
Oh, I'm back, but there are still about 1,145 things I still need to install on my home computer before it's fully functional. And I'd do it, too, except I keep getting distracted by things, like this perfect example of the lawyers art:
[Yansane's] attorney said “[o]ther people could have had access to the apartment, so maybe if a rocket launcher was located there, as is stated in the offense report, maybe it belonged to somebody else.”
Love it! Lawyer dude knows full well that the rocket-launcher belongs to his client. Hey, I should have tried this when I was a kid.
"Mom, other people might have access to my underwear drawer, so maybe if the stack of Playboys you mention really was found under my tighty-whities, then they were placed there by somebody else."
Nah, Mom would have seen through that in a second.
