Lindsey Graham is threatening the fifty-second Republican constitutional amendment of the past ten years because habeas corpus was upheld.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) vowed Thursday to do everything in his power to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision on Guantanamo Bay detainees, saying that, “if necessary,” he would push for a constitutional amendment to modify the decision.

A former military prosecutor, Graham blasted the decision as “irresponsible and outrageous,” echoing the sentiments of many congressional Republicans and President Bush.

I would love it if some intrepid Republican would produce the New Republican Constitution. It would be interesting to see a bold reimagining of the founding document of our nation if a third of it was about nothing but penises, sales taxes and Arabs.

IN: Former GOP chief pleads guilty to oral ‘deviate conduct’ on a sleeping man

By pams

Yessssss…it’s nice to see the case of Glenn Murphy, Jr. resolved during the campaign season. It’s a reminder that the GOP ranks are rife with Republican Sexual Hypocrites, perpetrating their sexual and criminal deviant behavior while presenting a pious, judgmental image to the public. (Courier-Journal): The former chairman of the Clark County Republican Party pleaded guilty today to criminal deviate conduct as part of an agreement that could result in two years behind bars. Glenn…

Liberty Counsel files ludicrous petition to stop CA same-sex marriages

By pams

The desperation of the wingnuts to stop the launch of legal same-sex marriage in California next week is now laughable at this point. Today Liberty Counsel is filing a petition requesting the California Court of Appeal to stay the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples. On June 16, the…


Ew, Nazis

By Jesse Taylor

A truly bizarre last line from George Will’s otherwise totally phoned-in Friday column: Assuming, not rashly, that Barack Obama wins, 2016 is the next time Hillary Clinton, who will then be 68, can seek the Democratic nomination. By then, the median age of the electorate will be 47, so for…


Evil Is Evil

Zimbabwe updates: Mugabe’s government continues to arbitrarily detain opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai two weeks before scheduled elections. His deputy, Tendai Biti, is being detained on charges of treason. In a gross fit of irony, Biti is being accused of tampering with elections: Senior officials in Mr. Mugabe’s governing party, in…


SC: ‘I Believe’ license plates get the thumbs up

By pams

Sorry, SC readers, but your state is two for two today on the wingnut scoreboard after the HS gay-straight alliance ban attempt story. How about a state-sanctioned religious license plate — no worries about church-state conflict in the Palmetto State: South Carolina’s lieutenant governor announced Thursday that he is willing…

Warning: Wretched amounts of jargon will have to be used in this post. I usually regret opening my mouth like this, but I can’t take it anymore. This Linda Hirshman article is still being dissected in listservs and on blogs, and I just have to make it known in a…

Kos has Obama’s birth certificate. Chuckie J and the Boyz are wondering if they can kern a motherfucker up in this piece. The fact that they can’t isn’t stopping other intrepid souls from attempting to cast doubt on an official government document that not only shows he’s Qadaffi bin Laden…


Grow Up, Greenies

By Jesse Taylor

Let’s make a deal – we’ll “grow up” and consider the need to drill every bit of oil we can when you grow up and consider the need to be less dependent on oil. Democrats are going to have to grow up. The oil-rich areas they want to leave untouched…
