From the LRC blog
  • Finger-painting with an iPhone.
  • Mancow epilogue: Mancow concedes it’s torture but says the US should do it anyway. What a monstrous spectacle. So all you neocons, here’s your official position: waterboarding is torture, and torture is defensible. Admit you are pro-torture.
  • Planning to leave the warm embrace of your Uncle Looter? Then the US Department of Homeland Security is going to fingerprint you as you leave the Land of the Free.
  • Each corrupt country puts its own stamp on corruption, but the fundamentals are always the same. Now Republicans are “Shocked, Shocked!” that Obama Motors is closing Chrysler dealerships belonging to donors to the GOP, while those favoring Democrats are staying open and supposedly gaining market share (let’s leave aside the question, will anyone want to buy the product?). Funny, Republicans never inquired into the donations to the GOP from the defense industry and the notoriously corrupt “independent contractors” who stole tens of billions from the taxpayer during the Iraq War.
  • So Republicans are upset that Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor to replace David Souter on the Supreme Court. Why? She was nominated to the U.S. District Court in New York by Republican George H.W. Bush and confirmed on unanimous consent of the Senate. Then, when she was nominated by Bill Clinton to be a U.S. Court of Appeals judge, 25 Republican senators voted to confirm her. And back when Clinton nominated the ultra-liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, only 3 Republicans out of 44 in the Senate at the time voted against her. The Republicans are a little late to be opposing Ms. Sotomayor.
  • Ron Paul on all that. He and I don’t care what colour she is; what about the economy and liberty?
