Arizona To Supreme Court:

Kiss my ass.

That should be the message sent, if this America we once admired so greatly has any of its federalist roots remaining.

If all power derives to the national government, as seems ever more the case, then why do we have states at all?

Why have a Constitution at all, for that matter?

Why not just have Obama dictate to us his latest whimsy?

It's probably a good thing that I'm not the governor of Arizona.  Because this would infuriate me:
The Obama administration on Friday urged the Supreme Court to review and set aside an Arizona law that sanctions employers who hire illegal immigrants, saying it would disrupt the "careful balance" that Congress struck in federal immigration law. 
The Supreme Court of the United States does not have the authority - despite the history brought about by the Civil Rights movement - to "set aside" state laws.

Arizona should tell Washington to pound salt, and go about its business.  This line needs to be drawn.

WaPo 'Investigative Journalists' Don't Want To Know

Was a crime committed at the University of Virginia when the infamous Professor Michael Mann was taking money from Virginia taxpayers and possibly producing fraudulent research?

The newspaper that brought down a president with relentless journalistic inquiry would rather be left happy and clueless when it comes to the matter of fraud and liberal academe.

See "U-Va. admirably resists Mr. Cuccinelli's fishing expedition."

There's nothing there.  Let's move on.  Academic inquiry, and all that.

Richard Nixon could only have wished for such "journalism" in his day.

* Oddly, the Post editorial makes the following claim without backing it up:

"That's because, first, the law is on the university's side."

Really?  Would that law be this law?

Sweet Justice

You know that creepy reporter who moved in next door to Sarah Palin and has started spying on her so as to be able to write a book about her?

Apparently intrusive behavior is a one-way street:


They invented the word schadenfreude for moments like this.

Between Vacations

Our president manages to get a photo-op in down on the beaches of Louisiana.  Then it's off on another vacation.

The campaigning was the tough part.

Now it's afterglow.

Party, dude.
