We have the body. Reportedly bin Laden was living in a mansion in Pakistan’s capital.
Now we KNOW Pakistan can’t be trusted. And they have nukes.
Obama’s approval level is about to get a big bump — deservedly so. I can’t wait to hear the details; apparently a CIA operative shot him in the head. Just like nearly 3,000 Americans, bin Laden died without warning. He deserved worse.
The NRA should be satisfied. Democrats abandoned sensible gun control three elections ago, standing on the sidelines as the firearms lobby advanced legislation allowing paranoid rednecks the right to carry in churches and bars.
But the gun nuts are never satisfied.
The Obama administration has proposed that gun dealers in four states on the U.S.-Mexico border be required to report the sale of multiple rifles — a bid to curb the flow of guns into Mexico where drug cartels wage deadly wars.
The proposal has drawn intense criticism from the NRA, which has accused the administration of using the violence in Mexico as a pretext to try to clamp down on gun sales.
Stockpiling one-man arsenals to fend off imaginary black helicopters has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. The NRA’s gun fetish is, at best, selfish and irresponsible.
“The Asshole” is whining over his treatment at last night’s White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, calling the barbs directed at him “inappropriate in certain respects.”
How dare they mock the self-proclaimed richest guy in the room.
Not legally binding, of course, but after reading this second fan’s account I’m fairly convinced the Braves pitching coach is an asshole.
Todd Achondo says he will not hire Gloria Allred or any other attorney to present his case against Atlanta pitching coach Roger McDowell. He can’t imagine reenacting graphic sexual gestures in front of a camera while his young sons sit nearby, as Allred and client Justin Quinn did during a news conference attended by Quinn’s 9-year-old twin daughters.
Achondo found much of Wednesday’s display absurd – except for the facts behind it.
MLB has suspended McDowell for two weeks without pay. I thought he would receive worse punishment — a month would’ve been appropriate. Firing him would’ve been excessive (was Kobe Bryant forced to retire?), but McDowell has put himself at the mercy of the indignation councils. Don’t expect any sympathy outside of the Limbaugh bubble.
LGBT advocacy groups overreached this week when they pressured King & Spalding, representing the U.S. House in upholding the Defense of Marriage Act, into dropping the case. An unfortunate legal precedent has been set, explains Geoffrey Stone, a constitutional law scholar from the University of Chicago.
‘To condemn a lawyer for representing a client is a problematic attack on the general responsibility of lawyers,” he says. “Third parties shouldn’t be in the business of excoriating lawyers for representing unpopular clients.”
