They told me that when Bush was President ...

... the Constitution would be destroyed!

Even worse are the clever schemes being cooked up in Congress to retrieve the money by means of some retroactive confiscatory tax. The common law is pretty clear about the impermissibility of ex post facto legislation and bills of attainder. They also happen to be specifically prohibited by the Constitution. We're going to overturn that for $165 million? -Charles Krauthammer - Bonfire of the Trivialities -

I love Krauthammer.

Bears repeating: Krauthammer and Hanson.

They share a rather refreshing respect for the truth.

Peggy Noonan, on the other hand, showed up in the WSJ today, all bewildered as the Obamamessiah's administration seems worrisomely 'weightless'.

I think she's well aware of the tragedy of having this man at the helm and is twisting herself in knots as she struggles to walk a tightrope between a full-throated apology and her desperate hope that Barack may yet emerge as a competent leader once he gets his sea legs.

She just can't bring herself to admit that her ga-ga need to join the glittering Obamaniacs trashed her judgment - or worse - that she cynically jumped ship for an inferior candidate for professional reasons.

Either way, until she gives a clear-voiced acknowledgment and apology - she is totally discredited as one who is interested in truth.

Haven't you heard? The constitution is a living document. It changed its mind.
