political

Just sayin'

(Yes, I owe one sci-fi recap. Coming soon.)

Was it just me, or did anyone think Cheney in that wheelchair looked like Old Man Potter out there on the podium?

Or has this one already been done to death? Most of the jokes I saw involved the Imperial March from Star Wars or somethin'.

So, um, yeah. *Dance of victory*. Yay Obama, on day one he undid the worst abuses of Executive Branch power. I wonder if there's any constitutional method to keep another president from grabbing that much power again.

We need to encode, somewhere, that when Nixon said "if the president is doing it, it isn't against the law," he was wrong.
