What's the deal with...

Seems everyone is running a marathon this Fall. I guess it's a way to prove to yourself you're at the apex of good health, but it seems to me that a feat that makes your nipples bleed and causes incontinence can't be that good for you. What happened to moderation? Everything has to be extreme now. And people actually travel to run marathons. People should travel to Boston to see the Freedom Trail, not run a marathon.

Ok, I'm done being Jerry Seinfeld for the time being.

It's almost laughable how Hutchinson's legal theories can do a 180 as soon as the administration changes. Air America has a nice little except from her thoughts during the Clinton impeachment hearings:

"The edifice of American jurisprudence rests on the foundation of the due process of law. The mortar in that foundation is the oath. Those who seek to obstruct justice weaken that foundation, and those who violate the oath would tear the whole structure down."

I think the Dem strategy in 2008 should be to point out that a) Republicans consider themselves above the law, and b) Republicans are phony. The amount of canned outrage from the GOP at times like this is going to bite them in the ass.

I totally agree Steve. These people don't have principles unless the principle is: We're always right.
