The House "has been run like a plantation, and you know what I'm talking about," said Clinton, D-New York. "It has been run in a way so that nobody with a contrary view has had a chance to present legislation, to make an argument, to be heard."

Why can't people just say what they think without making completely idiotic metaphorical statements?


"It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans," the mayor said. "This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans."

Way to come together Mayor. I had much patience during the Katrina affair regarding some of the statements of black leaders and officials. No matter what was going on, it sure as hell looked like, in a predominantly black city, no one was there to help and that people were abandoned. However, this is just stupid, reverse segregation and personally, I'm not sure God is down with that.

I think I can hear many conservatives moaning right now, "Say it isn't so Hitch!".

Good. Some people are wondering what this ruling would have been should Alito be on the court. I don't think its hard to guess.

Bad. Not sure what the hell is going to come of this. I have more fear about this issue than any other since 9/11.

The assisted suicide case is a classic example of people misinterpreting the legal issues. It wasn't about whether the Government could, or could not, regulate (make illegal) assisted suicide, it was whether it had already done so or not.

I support assisted suicide, and favor the Oregon law. However, I don't think that Roberts, Scallia and Thomas were necessarily wrong in their interpretation of what the law said.

Of course, if Alito had been on the court, and if he voted with the dissenters, the outcome would have still been the same.
