The sands in your way beg for your song and your movement, dancing water. will you carry the burden of their lameness? Do you understand?


Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. What fun Will Rogers, Mark Twain, Lysander Spooner and the sage from Baltimore would have had with this. Glen Beck ain't up to it and reviles the proponent of the best way to address it, Saul Alinsky, namely ridicule.

Obama called in a lawyer, all right ... to support the administration's story. This memo has absolutely no legal analysis, nor does it provide any information about the supposed investigation into the facts. Where's the discussion of the statute that seemingly was violated here (18 U.S.C. 600)? Although the official White House stance appears to be that the statute wasn't violated because the position that Clinton reportedly discussed with Sestak was unpaid, and perhaps also that the conversations were with Clinton rather than directly with an administration official, those facts still would seem to fall within the ambit of the statutory language. To me, there's nothing in Mr. Bauer's memo that supports his conclusion that “[s]uch discussions are fully consistent with the relevant law and ethical requirements.” Interestingly, this conclusion follows a statement to the effect that Obama is not the first president to engage in such conduct. Surely, that's not the basis for Mr. Bauer's conclusion?
