Race to the Bottom
It's only June, but the Nobel Prize judging committee in Stockholm has officially closed further nominations for "Most Despicable Woman of the Year." And unsurprisingly, the award is once again going to Nancy Pelosi.
Following the vote to find Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his repeated lies and stonewalling tactics, Pelosi made the jaw-dropping assertion that the entire congressional investigation of the "Fast & Furious" gun-walking program - and the many deaths resulting from it, including that of Border Agent Brian Terry - is really just a scheme to take Eric Holder off the playing field.
Why? So that the GOP can distribute ax handles to polling places around the country to beat the living crap out of black voters in November, the better to return America to the grasping claws of cackling, albino-white billionaires.
Okay, those weren't her exact words - though it was quite clearly her implication. What she actually said was "They're going after Eric Holder because he is supporting measures to overturn these voter suppression initiatives in the states. This is no accident, it is no coincidence. It is a plan on the part of Republicans."
Unlike, say, the plan on the part of Democrats to continue making a mockery of the Constitution, and to cry "racism" again and again to try to cover their withered, anti-American, lying asses.
Very Rank Hath its Privileges
And gosh, let's not leave Barack Hussein Obama out of this mess! At the point Eric "New Black Panthers" Holder could no longer stonewall about his agency's (and perhaps his president's) role in arming psychopathic Mexican murderers, Obama invoked "Executive Privilege" so that Holder wouldn't have to reveal anything which might be politically inconvenient for the world's most transparent president.
Unsurprisingly, the family of Brian Terry was disappointed (to put it mildly) that the conspiracy to hide the details of the Border Agent's death now reaches all the way into the Oval Office.
And what are we to make of the notion that there is something more "top secret" and highly-classified about "Fast & Furious" than there was about the mission to take down Osama bin Laden - about which this administration has leaked everything to filmmakers who are making an action movie with Barry as the hero?
What about this administration's self-congratulatory leaks about the Stuxnet and Flame computer viruses? Or their leaked stories of Obama keeping a deck of cards with pictures of terrorists, which he looks through to personally select who will take a Hellfire missile up the ass?
Clearly, the only "secrets" this administration keeps are the ones which would hurt them politically. Meaning that if Obama has invoked Executive Privilege, this secret must be a lulu - potentially something which would immediately end the president's chances for reelection.
With that thought, and the memory of Brian Terry, in mind - we hope that congress will keep digging into "Fast & Furious."
And that after November's election, Barack Obama will be unable to get a job which even gives him access to the executive washroom - let alone Executive Privilege.

Oh my hammers and sickles! Those Russkies sure know how to tell a great joke, don't they?! Perhaps that's why they're so naturally adept at recognizing it when America's president becomes a great joke whom they don't have to worry about as they dramatically step up aggression in the world.
But Russia isn't alone in realizing that America has no president between now and November - just a fundraising, purely-political candidate who has every interest in gathering campaign funds...and no interest in rocking the boat by standing up to actual tough guys in the world.
Which is why Russia, Iran, China, North Korea, and Syria are among those who are running wild right now, secure in the knowledge that Barack Obama - America's commander-in-chief - has hung a "vacancy" sign on the Oval Office door while he's out popping champagne corks with his $38,500 per plate celebrity pals.
And of course, having an absentee president affects more than foreign policy: the nation's unemployment numbers and gloom felt by business owners are a clear reflection that everyone understands that Obama is uninterested in the Bulls & Bears of the economy because he's preoccupied with the fundraising dog & pony shows.
If only we had a president who could do campaign fundraising AND accomplish all of the really important business of the American people. Like that fellow back in 2008...what was his name? Oh yeah, presidential candidate Barack F. Obama.
When the financial feces hit the fan, causing a crisis which the president now describes as the worst since the Big Bang, presidential candidate John McCain told his rival - Senator Barack Obama - that they needed to mutually postpone campaign activities and head to Washington to try to help save the country - and maybe the world.
But Barry sneeringly passed on the whole crisis - waving it away and saying that he, at least, "could deal with more than one thing at once." Except he didn't. He chose to attend fundraising events and make campaign speeches, taking advantage of McCain's more honorable insistence that country comes before politics.
And as we've all seen in the past several years, it turns out that Barry can't do more than one thing at once. In fact, he can't do anything at all except campaign for president: because he's a passionate and charismatic candidate...but has no substance as a leader whatsoever.
Which is bad news for America, but the best news in generations for the enemies of America, who no longer even try to hide their contempt for the vacuous poppinjay whose claim that he can "walk and chew gum at the same time" is all the more tragic for having been proved a lie.

For the record, Hope n' Change is tickled pink there are laws which protect the physical safety of presidents, whether they're popular or not. And like every other freaking law on the books, including those related to immigration, we think those laws should be vigorously enforced.
Why? Because laws which have been enacted by our legally-elected representatives in Washington reflect the voice and will of the American people, tempered with the Constitutional wisdom of our nation's founders. No one should be above the law or be dismissive of the process by which laws are created or repealed.
Which brings us to His Royal Highness, The Most Excellent and Almighty Barack Hussein Obama - Hallowed Be Whichever Name He Is Currently Using.
Laws mean nothing to him. Nothing.
Not the immigration laws he just told Eric "Lapdog" Holder to stop enforcing. Not the laws which make it illegal to give guns to Mexican drug cartels. Not the laws which make it a criminal offense to leak classified intelligence for your own political gain.
Not the laws against tax fraud which Obama threw to the wind to let Tim Geither run all of our finances through his faulty TurboTax software. Nor the bankruptcy laws that Obama shredded in order to shaft GM's bondholders and give a multi-billion dollar political payoff to the United Auto Workers.
The laws against voter intimidation and hate crimes were quick to be discarded by this president when the New Black Panthers threatened voters and used racial epithets at a polling place. Laws against non-citizens voting in a presidential election? They're on the books - but Obama is going to war with Florida to keep them from being enforced.
And now, as Obama begins a frantic effort to buy votes, people are wondering what laws they should stop obeying in hopes of taking advantage of the president's growing "wheel of fortune" anti-law election giveaway policies.
Hey, don't pay your mortgage bills - Obama might forgive your debt! College loans? Hey, screw the legally required payments - Obama is hinting at fiscal amnesty for students! Thinking of giving up marijuana? Don't be stupid - word on the street is it's on the Choomer-in-Chief's "do not enforce" shortlist! And the list goes on and on...
What we're talking about here is chaos. Anarchy directed from the Oval Office. Because Barack Obama intends to win reelection even if it means burning this country and its laws to the ground.
And Hope n' Change is against that, in the strongest possible way. Because when this is no longer a nation of laws, then it sure as hell isn't the nation that generations have fought and died for.
Barack Obama should be made to answer to the American people (via Congressional action) right now whether he supports our system of laws and will demand that the Department of Justice actually enforce them. And our elected representatives must stand up now to say that unilateral declarations from the Whitehouse will not be allowed to derail our Constitutional balance of powers.
We can't wait until election day to get this settled. Because it is the election process itself which the president is actively, aggressively, and illegally working to subvert.
