Fein Calls for Bush Impeachment

Bruce Fein, a very well respected conservative legal scholar and Reagan’s Deputy Attorney General, has officially called for Bush to be impeached for what he calls “political crimes against the Constitution.” He did so on Keith Olbermann’s show last night (here’s the full transcript): OLBERMANN: Do you think this president needs to be impeached? FEIN:…

Judge Roy Moore has another profoundly silly column at the Worldnutdaily, this one about how perjury is allegedly caused by lack of belief in God and in his eternal punishment. After inventing a ridiculous conversation between a mythical judge and a non-existent 6 year old, Moore writes: Young Johnny may believe there are severe consequences…

Gonzales Lied, Film at 11

The AP reports that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lied to Congress the other day when he claimed that the now-famous hospital trip to get John Ashcroft to sign off on the legality of an anti-terror program was not the warrantless wiretapping program, or TSP. Gonzales claimed that they only went there to inform Ashcroft that…

O’Reilly’s Hate Site

With Bill O’Reilly blathering like an idiot about DailyKos being a “hate site” that preaches the “violent overthrow of the government”, the folks at DK have been having a bit of fun finding lots and lots of examples of hatred, bigotry and threats of violence on Billy Boy’s site. They cite numerous posts advocating violence…

More STACLU LIes

This time from Todd Anthony, who is telling the same lie about the ACLU’s objection to warrantless wiretapping that the pedestrian right has been telling all along about their position (I say pedestrian right because among the intellectual right, including scholars like Bruce Fein, there are many who agree with the ACLU on this and…

Janet Folger’s Anti-Gay Lies

I can see this woman is going to become a regular target, she spreads manure like an old farmer. Check out her latest absurd column at the Worldnutdaily and some of the lies it contains.

A couple months ago it was announced that several top reggae stars whose music contains lyrics urging people to kill gays had signed an agreement not to express such hatred anymore: A three year battle to get some of the world’s top reggae artists to renounce homophobic lyrics in their music has been met with…

Here’s an incredible case. A Spanish judge has ordered a woman to stop being a lesbian or lose her children: A Spanish judge has ordered a woman to either enter a relationship with a man or turn her children over to her former husband after the court was told the woman is a lesbian. Judge…

Paying Dead Farmers Not to Farm

The Washington Post reports on a study that shows that the Federal governement paid $1.1 billion over 7 years to farmers who were dead, some of which likely was paid to them not to grow on some portion of their farms. Ilya Somin defends such payments, saying: It’s hard to deny that dead farmers can…

Ebert and Coulter At the Movies

Roger Ebert has a parody – I think – of a typical Ann Coulter interview on his website. I say “I think” because Coulter is such a self-parody that it’s difficult to tell sometimes. A sample: ANN: Good idea. For example, what should they do with their illegitimate children? Of course the word “illegitimate” is…
