Let's All Hope

From TPM, on Newt on Sotomayor:

Now Newt Gingrich has responded to Sen. Cornyn's call to basically shut the hell up by turning the volume way up on the Sotomayor as anti-American racist freak by invoking the Civil War, civil rights and arguing that American civilization itself may be at stake if her brand of 'racism' isn't defeated.

Let's all hope Newt's idea of American civilization is well and truly dooomed.

Exactly what I expected, but it doesn't make it palatable, or correct. Oh well, on to another proposition battle.

Or Not Disbarment?

David Waldman argues FORCEFULLY at dKos that disbarment is not enough.

It may, however, be all we can get. Spain, on the other hand.......


One of the possible outcomes being discussed of the OPR report on Bybee, Yoo, et al, and the torture memos is disbarment. I am not a lawyer, and don't even play one on tv, but this sounds to me like a slam dunk proposition. Either they deliberately misled their 'clients' or they are really, really, really bad attorneys; either is grounds for disbarment.

Hilzoy has a an excellent post on this up at Political Animal.

Is Rush Killing Clear Channel?

And how can I help? Atrios points to a great post at Mediamatters about how Rush IS killing Clear Channel (and sadly, there appears to be no way to help!) The downside is, Rush is getting rich doing it to them, altho the gravy train will stop when CCO goes down (altho with a $100M SIGNING BONUS! yes, SIGNING BONUS!, he may not give a crap when that happens!)
