"Give me the liberty to know, to utter, and to argue freely according to conscience, above all liberties. Truth was never put to the worse in a free and open encounter..."
~ Milton
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Every time I think I can't be more appalled by the Right's behavior, something happens or is revealed that proves I was wrong.

The veteran republican [Congressman Henry Hyde] is also admitting for the first time that the impeachment of Clinton may have been in part political revenge against the democrats for the impeachment proceedings against GOP President Richard Nixon 25 years earlier. *

"Was this pay back?" asked Andy Shaw.

"I can't say it wasn't.

I'm beginning to wonder if there is any bottom to the Republican barrel. (Via Ralph Luker at Cliopatria.)

One of the things that made me most reluctant to vote for Salazar here in Colorado was his idiocy on the subject of the congressional filibuster. For only the second time since he took office, I find myself able to applaud him for reconsidering that mistake.

You know what I want to see? By 8:00 Monday morning, I want to see, front and center on theNYTimes and WaPo front pages and on the CNN and MSNBC websites, a chart showing a comparison between the average annual number of Clinton judicial nominees blocked by Congress during his years and the average annual number of Bush nominees that have been blocked. Why doesn't one, single major media outlet have the courage to just put the numbers out there? They aren't complicated, they speak for themselves.

Atrios points us to Carpetbagger where I found out that Santoro has a new scheme going. He wants to forbid the taxpayer-funded National Weather Service from providing weather information to taxpayers. We should pay for it a second time, through some private weather information provider.

There will be a pause while my mind boggles.

And now, in even stupider news, it seems that reading too many books is dangerous these days. I have two flights in May. If an airport screener attempts to relieve me of any one of the four or five books I'll have in my carry-on luggage, I'm gonna be pitching a fit. (Via the Invaluable Avedon Carol.)
