"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..."

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

I know, I said I was going to comment more in other people's blogs instead of the "no-feedback feedback" of offering a link most of them will never know about.

Still. Sometimes I run across posts I think should get the widest possible exposure.

For instance, Ahistoricality offers us a glimpse of the future that the Radical Right envisions for the country:

“Stop throwing the Constitution in my face,” Bush screamed back. “It’s just a goddamned piece of paper!”

Don't fail to read the article.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, while still White House counsel, wrote that the “Constitution is an outdated document.”

Note to the Radical Right, clueless Conservatives, and those of you who allowed yourselves to be stampeded by fear after 9/11: Thankyouverymuch. Your blind and mindless support of the forces that seek to destroy this country has been noted. Please be prepared to pay the bill when it's presented.

Update:

Dammit. When will I remember to check the source before passing stuff along? With apologies to Ahistoricality, let me say that I rarely find that Capitol Hill Blue is a reliable source for material so I'm now doubting the veracity of this story.

Anne,

I have to admit, I never heard of CHB before this week, but I'm not a serious [I had a different word here, but Haloscan flagged it] beltway junkie. Avedon linked there, which is how I found it, and the guy seems to have some serious inside sources. Still, "unnamed" isn't the most reliable guy these days, and the rest of the comments in the article (like the Gonzales you cite) are from public or published statements. And I haven't seen a lot of denial coming out of the Dingy Residence, either.

Love the graphic, though!

And this story may be true. Certainly stories of Bush's ghastly temper and stubborn refusal to acknowledge that the law applies to himself and his friends have been circulating for long enough that I believe them.

But the bottom line is that I've linked to CHB stories before to find out a few days later that the coverage was badly flawed or worse.
