Sanity Takes A Holiday – A BP Bonus

We have all come to expect split-decisions from the Supreme Court, but we don’t expect the four on the losing side to consist of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and…Antonin Scalia!

Impeach The S.O.B.!

For a long time, as much as I wanted to see Obama gone, I opposed the notion of Congress attempting to impeach him. I figured that with the Senate in the hands of Harry Reid, nothing would come of it. What’s more, when it was attempted with Clinton, he came out at the other end…
