Let's Keep this GoingResponding to internet trolls may not be the noblest of pursuits, but the worldview being expressed on that same thread is truly amazing:
I'm with Bob from Ohio on this one. The President will have to tell the Court to #**@ off if we're to win the war on terror. Let them whine. He won't be impeached, and the Court will finally learn some humility.
I don't expect this Court-worshipping blog to understand such sentiments. But then again, just because you dress up some unelected snobs in black robes doesn't mean you get to call every word that issues from their mouths the "Rule of Law," especially when their words are entirely arbitrary.
When I look at the present with a mixture of shock and horror, this is precisely what I see. And notice how the key move here is the one I cataloged earlier: we must win the war on terror at all costs. It's the only issue that matters. Fuck the checks and balances, they are in the way of expediency. Instead of "court-worshiping" judges, we should worship the unchecked power of our leader in his glorious cause to save us all from the terrorists.
