Dumbfuckery Du Jour

Have to admit, I've been kind of meh about pollyticks lately.  It's beginning to feel like watching too many clown shows at the circus.  And I've been much more interested in reading my new books, researching the evolution of plants, going outside to play, and all that.

But I can take a moment to tell Eric Holder he's a motherfucking moron for giving in to the fearmongers.  Add him to the list of dumbfucks who believe telling suspects about the rights they already have somehow makes us less safe.  Hate to break the news, but just because an officer doesn't tell a suspect he has the right to remain silent doesn't mean that right magically goes away.  Any crook who knows how to work a remote already knows that.  And cops have had a great many years to work out ways to get suspects to talk despite that.  So all this talk of carving out exceptions to Miranda does is walk us further along the path from democracy to police state.  Grow a fucking pair and stand by the Constitution, Eric.

Perhaps I'll send him a box of Depends, as he's decided to join the pants-pissing pansy crowd.

In other dumbfuck news, Obama nominated Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court, and the American Fucktard Family Association and friends nearly instantly came out with these little gems:
In a blog post for the far-right American Family Association (AFA) today, Bryan Fischer comes right out and says that the media should pointedly ask Kagan, “Are you a lesbian?” And if she is, according to AFA, she shouldn’t serve on the court:
It’s time we got over the myth that what a public servant does in his private life is of no consequence. We cannot afford to have another sexually abnormal individual in a position of important civic responsibility, especially when that individual could become one of nine votes in an out of control oligarchy that constantly usurps constitutional prerogatives to unethically and illegally legislate for 300 million Americans.
The stakes are too high. Social conservatives must rise up as one and say no lesbian is qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. Will they?
Americans For Truth — a group “devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda” — also put out a statement saying that Kagan needs to answer, “Are (or were) you a practicing homosexual or do you consider yourself homosexual (gay)?” Last month, Focus on the Family also said that it would not be open to a gay Supreme Court justice. 
The National Organization of Marriage put out a statement today saying that a vote to confirm Kagan "will be a vote for imposing gay marriage on all 50 states."
Wow, that's power.  A single justice can single-handedly make everybody gay-marry.  Who knew?  I just wish it were as simple as all these social cons think it is, because then I could petition the court to hand down a ruling demanding Liv Tyler and I to get married.  Mind you, I haven't got any desire to get married, but if it's a legal requirement...

These rants make me hope she is a lesbian, and that she'll come out wearing her Supreme Court justice robe and flaunt it in their faces.  I'd say it would break their brains, but seeing as how they're already broken, I'm not sure just how much more damage she could do.  But it would still amuse.

I'm taking bets on how long it'll be before Bryan Fischer's caught with a rentboy of his own.  Wild homophobia is a symptom of repressed urges, it seems, and he's positively foaming at the mouth.  I give him a year at best.

Pig-ignorant fuckwits abound.  I think I shall go back to burying myself in geology now.

I'd like to know why Holder thinks that he can ignore Supreme Court precedent that says the government must release a suspect who hasn't been told his rights. Oh, wait, he can just hold someone anyway, because they're terrorists.

The law sure is simple when you're powerful enough that you don't have to follow it.
