Am I the only one utterly bored with Foleygate? Who finds the endless repetition of the phrase "every parent's greatest fear" just plain gross? Or who finds it ridiculous when soft-handed Paul Begala claims "If somebody sends an email like that to my kid, they're going to deal with the law firm of Smith & Wesson. It ain't gonna go to no page court." (No, I'm not embedding it.)
Meanwhile, the House half-assedly gave the President the green light to bomb Iran, and the NLRB stripped the right to form a union from 8 million workers by calling them "supervisors."
Via Arthur Silber, Dave Lindorff:
It's a sad commentary on the state of American democracy, on the instincts of the American citizenry, and on the standards and judgment of the American newsmedia that the unsavory advances of a pathetic Florida congressman can have the nation in high dudgeon, while the ramming through of a patently illegal piece of legislation undermining a crucial 13th century civil liberty (habeas corpus), and the Fourth and Eighth Amendments of the constitution, and the secret planning for an illegal and catastrophic attack on Iran, both merit almost no complaint or mention.
