Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Badass Quote of the Day

From Alex Pareene, writing at Salon about the latest hysterical right wing prediction about Obama turning the country over to the Indians:

(Also why don’t Scalia-style Constitutional originalists ever insist that America honor its various broken treaties with all the Indians whose lands we stole as we systematically removed and massacred them? I know that would entail giving them back the entirety of Oklahoma, among lots of other amusing things, but the supremacy of treaties is in the damn Constitution! Although I guess Article Six, with its federal supremacy clause and its no religious test talk, has always been the article that right-wingers are not particularly enthusiastic about.)

Because treaties are agreements with furriners. And we don’t like us no furriners.
