Oh boy what a day

Let's see, first we had Sheriff Joke Arpaio of the Maricopa County Sheriff Department call a re-election rally err press conference to declare that Mitt Romney's VIN number and bar-coded Factory of Origin certification were questionable err, no, that was Obama's birth certificate, my bad. Then there were the dead people. There was that Andrew Breitbart fellow who was famous for being a lying asshole, of course, but really, the less said there the better. I liked Ken Houghton's long obituary for David Thomas "Davey" Jones best of those I've read today. Davey Jones added something to the world, however little some people think of what he added to the world, fact remains that there was more in this world when he left than when he got started. That other guy... well, he was a destroyer, not a maker. Let's leave it at that.

Oh wait, forgot one last piece of news. Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, and Birgitta Jonsdottir have generously signed up to be detained indefinitely without trial as terrorist sympathizers for having the audacity to sue the U.S. government to stop enforcement of a new law allowing any American to be detained indefinitely on nothing more than the say-so of the President that the person being detained is a "terrorist". Remember, one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. By fighting for freedom, these three have proven they're terrorist, right? Right?

  1. Gee, it's not like President Gingrich would abuse such a law...

    Or President Santorum...

    Shit, does Obama not see that he will disappear forever into a gulag next January 20th if he loses that election?
