After weeks of grouchy, crazy obstructionism alternating with inertia, he must be extra grumpy that today is “President’s Day.”

Res ipsa loquitor. I’m sure a guy who was his prison guard in the “Hanoi Hilton”—now likely a millionaire running a sweatshop that sews thongs for Victoria’s Secret—is laughing his ass off.

In American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock, the SCOTUS majority in Citizens United, again channeling the robber baron Lockner v. NY and Jim Crow Plessy v Ferguson bad ole days struck down Montana’s 1912 campaign finance law which limited unlimited corporate money in elections. It extended Citizens United, in other other words, to states. 22 states and John McCain himself wrote amicii supporting the law. Montana, mind you, is a ruddy, ruddy red state; the Montana Supreme Court upheld the law and the Montana attorney general defended it valiantly. But nope. There’s an agenda here, folks, and we can’t let even our own peeps get in the way of it. It’s called power. The constitutional law concept of “federalism” has long been a tenet of conservative—indeed right wing—politico-legal philosophy. It means the states should have equal or even superior power to the federal government. Of course, when it, too, gets in the way, trash it. Conservative judge and scholar Richard Posner became a traitor to the wingnuts back in 2000 when, in his book Public Intellectuals, he said that’s exactly what happened in the Bush v. Gore opinion (giving Al Gore’s election win to George W. Bush). And very soon, Posner was dragged back into the fold and regurgitated what he was fed. Power is as power goes.

But let’s not complicate things. We have a country to take back and run for you…

HBO’s Game Change is  in Andrew Breitbart’s crosshairs from the grave. Amazing how crazy this is, in the context of the Right’s derangement, power dissonace. Ok, so let’s go over this once more. First, the book content on Barack Obama vs Hilary Clinton & John Edwards was much more compelling but not for TV ratings drama. Plus yeah, it’s a little dicey to put that stuff on while the sitting President and sitting Secretary of State (and Slick Willie) are still running around. Second, the content on Palin from the book went striaght into the movie. That content was not a liberal conspiracy but rather right from John McCain, his proxies, his old aides, other Republicans. So if you have an issue, righties, talk to McCain, the RINOS and Romney types who run VIACOM (which owns HBO).
 
This is all in the family, baby…
