Padilla to receive mental exam before trial

Jose Padilla will be examined to see if he"is competent for trial."

"A psychiatrist and a psychologist hired by Padilla's attorneys concluded he is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental problems stemming largely from his 3 1/2 years in solitary confinement at a Navy brig in Charleston, S.C.

Prosecutors agreed a court-ordered evaluation was necessary."

What a pansy.
Post-traumatic stress disorder caused by 3 1/2 years of solitary confinement is ridiculous.

He's being confined so strictly, that when he was being taken from his cell to the dentist, his eyes and ears were covered to apparently prevent him from blinking in morse code to his fellow conspirators who, as The Anonymous Liberal pointed out, "have probably been lying low for the last three years, patiently waiting for the right sequence of blinks from Padilla to indicate to them that it's time to commence . . . um . . . what exactly? Well, whatever it is, I'm sure it's sinister,"

There is no spoon...

Source "I mean, if you want to believe in psychics, fine. You're a dangerous idiot and I wouldn't trust you to operate a spoon without putting an eye out ... but fine. Your choice. Delude yourself silly. Your world is probably more fun than the real one." "Creationism, simply put, is the heartfelt conviction that man was created by God, using some kind of celestial putty. This is perhaps the most arrogant belief a human skull can contain without exploding." I love this article.

Mr. Prager, you are wrong. Please sit down and STFU.

I don't know if anyone actually read Mr. Glenn Greenwald's post about this douche bag saying how newly elected congressman Keith Ellison, the first Muslim congressman, had to take his oath on the Bible not the Koran, as according to his faith. Read to find out more below the fold.

Federalist Society cheers Cheney's attack on the rule of law

Dick Cheney spoke with the Federalist Society of Douchebags yesterday. Here is a brief summary of their chat, courtesy Glenn Greenwald:

(1) Neither Congress nor the Courts can "tie the hands of the President" during war.
(2) We are at war forever.
(3) The war is everywhere, including inside the U.S.
(4) Ergo, by definition, no more courts, no more laws, to restrain Our Leader (raucous laughter; wild applause).

Laura Ingraham sucks

Laura Ingraham has asked her listeners to call the Dem Voter protection hotline -- and they are now being flooded with calls from crank callers. Please call Laura and tell her what you think about this: 800.876.4123. You can e-mail her here. Apparently, voter intimidation and fraud are a joke to Laura Ingraham. Let's let her know that it is no joke
