Another Supreme Court Head Scratcher

I don’t get “outraged” much, but I’m at a loss here.

Really, all I can offer is a sigh followed by an outburst of anger:

The Supreme Court on Wednesday outlawed executions of people convicted of raping a child.

In a 5-4 vote, the court said the Louisiana law allowing the death penalty to be imposed in such cases violates the Constitution’s ban on cruel and unusual punishment.

It’s too bad we can’t seem to get the raped children covered by this “ban on cruel and unusual punishment”…

“The death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote in his majority opinion. His four liberal colleagues joined him, while the four more conservative justices dissented.

I agree, the death penalty is not a proportional punishment for the rape of a child, but it’s the best we can do. God would have to handle the rest.

But Justice Kennedy drifted away from his constitutional explanation for the ruling and let the real reason slip. This is the most frightening part of the ruling:

Kennedy said the absence of any executions for rape and the small number of states that allow it demonstrate “there is a national consensus against capital punishment for the crime of child rape.”

A “national consensus”? Why the hell do we even have a Supreme Court then? Let’s just have a national vote! Based on Anthony Kennedy’s reasoning, we might as well reverse the Dred Scott decision while we’re at it.

And do you really think that there would not have been a “national consensus” to kill this barbaric and perverted POS? I don’t think so. I’d bet that well over half of us would have volunteered to throw the switch. Anthony Kennedy is full of more crap than the septic tank outside the Sunsweet Prune Juice testing facility.

The child rapist in question is, coincidentally, named Kennedy. No relation to the Judge. At least I don’t think so, but you never know.

Update: I would have much preferred a ruling like the one described in this “news story” from The Onion (language warning):

Supreme Court Rules Death Penalty Is ‘Totally Badass’

The Bush Legacy? Forcing Those Who Hate Him to Stomp a Huge Carbon Footprint

The “Bush Legacy Tour” got underway on Monday.

This is where some Bush haters are traveling the country freely, saying whatever they want and spewing a bunch of bus exhaust into the air every day for almost four months so they can go around telling people how oppressive to our freedoms and bad for the environment the Bush administration has been.

The “Bush Legacy” bus will be on the road continually until mid-October. Here’s the tour schedule. Damn, I’m going to have to wait until September to go get some pictures?

Here are some pictures of the inside of the bus.

Below is the outside of the bus. If you see it coming, plug in the moonbat zapper and take cover.

We ask you, sweet God of Liberal Moral Relativism, how many children could have been provided health care and a warm meal for what this is costing?


Between Al Gore’s hypocrisy on energy consumption, and these pinheads spewing crap into the air for 50,000 miles this summer, we’ll be lucky to be alive come election time. They’re right! Bush has to go!

Oogie Picture of the Day: Mikulski Sandwich

Hillary returned to Capitol Hill to start her push for the Vice Presidency — I mean, to serve New Yorkers — and was welcomed back by the “pre-owned vehicle salesman” of politics, Sen. Charles Schumer, who was so excited he didn’t wait for “Triple-L” (liberal, lesbian, leprechaun), Sen. Barbara Mikulski, to get out of the way… not that Mikulski minded at all.

Here’s a sandwich that will make you go on a diet:


Rich Hollywood Liberal Hypocrite #295: Will Smith

How much more money does Hollywood donate to Democrats than Republicans?

Here’s some idea:

An analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, based on fundraising data released May 21, found Obama had collected more than $4 million from movie, TV and music businesses during the campaign. Clinton had received $3.4 million.

McCain’s take: $636,000.

Hey, there’s only so much the Republicans can raise from Tom Selleck, Patricia Heaton and Robert Duvall.

The reason Hollywood’s so liberal is best explained using Will Smith’s reasoning, or lack thereof, in the video below that lasts just over 30 seconds.

Here’s yet another uber-wealthy actor (Smith makes about $20 million per movie — boo hoo) who became a huge success in the United States and is living his dream with his take on why Obama’s star is on the rise around the world:

“It hasn’t been a ‘good thing’ to be an American.” (As it concerns foreign perception of America) “And this is the first time — since Barack has gotten the nomination — that it’s been a ‘good thing’…”

It would be an even ‘better thing’ if hypocritical doofknobs like this packed up and left. If it’s so bad here and so good there, why are you still here? That’s all I ever want to ask, and all they never want to answer.

Here’s unappreciative, myopic and idiotic liberal piffle at its finest:

Hey, that was good ventriloquism. I didn’t even see Michelle’s lips move.

Is Bill Dating Again?

I’m no photo analyst, but this picture released by the Edmonton Sun, purportedly showing Bill Clinton holding hands with some woman, looks very suspect:


Don’t get me wrong — it’s plausible (Bill goes up north a lot these days because a Canuck court recently ruled, under the Canadian Constitution, that “eatin’ ain’t cheatin'”) — but the picture just looks fake.

The woman in the picture seems to have her right hand at her side or behind her back, and the lower part of the arm seems to come out of nowhere. Possibly there’s somebody standing behind the woman in front that created an optical illusion. Either way I can’t help but wonder if Belinda Stronach is jealous — unless that’s her standing behind the woman in front.

Of course, now that Hillary’s presidential dreams this year are down the toilet, it’s very possible that Bubba has gone back to dating publicly. This girl has that Paula Jones quality that has demostrated its ability to make Bill’s trousers succumb to Newton’s Law of Gravity.

George Carlin, RIP

Seems like I’ve had too many “RIP” posts lately, but here’s another for the pile.

George Carlin died of heart failure in L.A.

Carlin was an atheist, and as a result often mocked things I believe in, so all I can say is that if I was right and he was wrong and George lost Pascal’s Wager, Carlin is giving God one hilarious monologue right now on how it was all a big joke.

Here’s one of my favorite Carlin bits, and not one you see all the time, like “a place for my stuff” or “baseball and football.” This bit is on the absolute arrogance and self-importance of the “save the planet” crowd:

Monday’s Column: Drilling for New Taxes

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily is about domestic oil drilling — or lack thereof — along with alternative fuels, and how Obama’s or McCain’s energy policies are going to be merely fronts for drilling into our paychecks.

Give a read to “Drilling for new taxes” for the story.

You can give it a “Digg” here.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Monday.

The Fright Stuff

China and India, both nuclear powers, are now engaged in a “space race.” Something leads me to believe that this can’t end well.

China got one step closer to its ultimate goal of putting dissidents on Mars when they put their first person into orbit in 2003. But now India says they plan to beat China to the moon, with the expressed goal of opening a 7-11 near the Ravi crater by 2020. China will be racing to beat them there.

What could possibly go wrong?

Obama: (Snake) Oil Salesman

There are three certainties in life: Death, taxes, and democrats playing to the lowest common denominator:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on Friday criticized a Republican proposal to lift a ban on oil drilling off the Florida coast, saying it would take at least 10 years for that to offer motorists relief at the pump.

Instead, Obama called for short-term tax breaks — paid for by oil companies — and long-term investment in alternative fuels to “reduce our dependence on foreign oil for good,” he said.

This is either real-world naive and economically retarded, or just good, old fashioned demagoguery. My guess is the worst of all possible choices: “All of the above.”

Barack Obama doesn’t want to drill domestically, because he wants us to believe that raising taxes on a particular business will make the price of their product drop. Hey, it’s just basic economics… for people with an I.Q. in the low 40’s.

Tax increases will make something cheaper just after the donkeys fly, the sun rises in the west and Amy Winehouse graces the cover of Good Housekeeping.

Simply put, here’s what Obama wants people to believe: We can tax oil companies billions of dollars per year, give some of that to taxpayers to use for gas, and the price of gas will be the same it was before, thereby saving people money on gas.

Once oil companies do what economic professors or anybody who lives with their eyes open and brains on refer to as “passing the added expense on to consumers,” and government does their usual mafia-esque light-skim of the windfall (three-quarters off the top for a new road named after Robert Byrd) there might be enough left for us to each buy a half gallon of gas — gas that will, incidentally, cost a dollar more per gallon than it did before Obama made it cheaper.

The only domestic area Barack Obama is interested in drilling is our wallets.

By the way, this photo of Obama playing “pretend president” complete with his own version of a presidential seal is worth a thousand words. It reminds me of JFK, Jr. peeking out from under his father’s desk in the Oval Office — the only difference being that, at age three, John-John was more qualified to be president:


I’m surprised Barack’s people didn’t use my idea for his seal: A picture of Obama, clutching olive branches in one hand and a copy of Das Kapital in the other, walking across the Potomac River on his way to be inaugurated.

Update: Is the fawning MSM’s nauseating political fellation of Obama coming to a premature end? Could be.
