Mail Call
On one hand, we have an employee that has been publicly chastised, and will be disciplined by his employer for providing assistance to local police - which violates company policy:

On the other hand, a man is in jail - charged with a dozen child molestation counts. Since he is acting as his own lawyer, he gets to review evidence against him.

Including the more than 100 child pornography videos seized from his computer:

Private company policy can be harsh, but the law is always an ass.

We sometimes forget just how in the tank much of the press is for Obama, especially since they've tended to tone it down a bit now that he is actually president. So we're grateful to Esquire for publishing a piece this morning by one Stephen Marche titled "How Can We Not Love Obama?" You may want to pop a Dramamine before reading this passage, which brings back memories of 2008:

    Can we just enjoy Obama for a moment? Before the policy choices have to be weighed and the hard decisions have to be made, can we just take a month or two to contemplate him the way we might contemplate a painting by Vermeer or a guitar lick by the early-seventies Rolling Stones or a Peyton Manning pass or any other astounding, ecstatic human achievement? Because twenty years from now, we're going to look back on this time as a glorious idyll in American politics, with a confident, intelligent, fascinating president riding the surge of his prodigious talents from triumph to triumph. Whatever happens this fall or next, the summer of 2011 is the summer of Obama.

Though it's possible this is another one of Esquire's satirical misfires.  [James Taranto]

Bernanke Fights Ron Paul In Congress:


What is "money" Mr. Bernanke?  Scrip backed by full faith and credit in  ...what?   Someone's "last dollar" bet on Obama not being a total worthless nincompoop?  What?

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky offered a backup plan that would, in effect, guarantee Obama requests for new government borrowing authority unless Congress musters veto-proof majorities to deny him. McConnell said he was forced to introduce the plan because he didn’t see a path to an agreement so long as Democrats insist on revenue  increases.

A bitch's proposalUnder McConnell’s proposal, Obama could request — and likely secure — increases of up to $2.5 trillion in the government’s borrowing authority in three separate installments over the coming year as long as he simultaneously proposed spending cuts of greater size.

Significantly, the president's spending cuts would be debated under normal procedures, with no guarantee they ever come to a final vote.


Knowing full well the answer, I mutter "How long has this been going on?"

Representing key business people who thought they could use the Leader for their own financial interests is G.E. Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt. Jeffy performed so effectively that Party Central asked him to audition for the role of Albert Speer.  On the western front, Schutzstaffe  divisions have crossed News Corps borders; a preemptive strike by Axis leaders to silence resistance.  Brown Shirts celebrate a victory and the Leader ratchets up the fear campaign.  Eva  eats französisch kartoffeln
