When the people that made the Rules start to change the Rules then who is following the Rules?



In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a
speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district
wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have
been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and
cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against
him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor,
and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

Ex Vice President Dick Cheney’s (or as my brother-in-law calls him……Darth Vader) daughter has taken up the mantle of pissing in President Obama’s Kool-Aid. Liz Cheney and her advocacy group Keep America Safe (how original is that)are going after Department of Justice lawyers who previously did pro bono work for Guantanamo detainees. Cheney is using a web ad that calls the Department of Justice the “Department of Jihad.” I knew the Republicans were trying to destroy Obama’s credibility among white folks but I didn’t know they had the same plans for Attorney General Eric Holder. I guess the saying is true about hitting two birds with one stone.

Uncharacteristically, Right Wing Lawyers have come out against Cheney in a worded statement that criticized Cheney’s web ad. You know you have messed up when Kenneth Starr is scolding you. The last time we saw him he was trying to prosecute a man for getting Fellatio on the job. So you know he is serious about prosecuting people.

I just don’t understand why people are changing the rules in the middle of the game. Cheney’s illegal alien ancestors (ha ha...okay so it's only funny to me..) created all these laws and now when they don’t work for her she flips the script. Don’t be mad at the Department of Justice. Be mad at your forefathers for writing the constitution.

For people who say they love America they (Cheney and the other Republicans) sure do hate what America stands for.

Cheney is a hack. She thought she could get the Tea Baggers behind her on this and make a bunch of money on the Tea Bagger talk circuit like Palin.

Val - I thought T Bagging was a fad but I guess we see that it has a useful purpose for being a spring board to fame. I guess it's the conservative version of American Idol.
