Too bad Judge Andrew Napolitano doesn’t pass Barry Soetoro’s litmus test for a U.S. Supreme Court nominee- the Constitution of the United States of America “is not a static but rather a living document.”

I’m sure everyone’s seen CNN’s Susan Roesgen having a little hissy fit at the Chicago Tea Party.
The crowd turned on her when she was rude and condescending to an attendee. “I think you get the general tenor of this,” she said. “It’s anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox.”
Of course, if the Chicago Tea Party attendees had been dressed in pink costumes, burning the American flag and hadn’t bathed in God knows when, Mz. Roesgen would have knocked them down en masse and licked their faces like a new puppy tasting its mother’s milk for the first time.
In the (snark, snark) Too-Good-Not-To-Be-True Category, it seems that Mz. Roesgen applied for employment TWICE in 2005 at the “right wing conservative network Fox”.

Fox Business and Fox News are reporting that they have obtained 5 emails through the FOIA between the Bush Administration and AIG concerning executive bonuses.
In a Nov. 5 e-mail to a Treasury and Federal Reserve officials, an outside attorney working on the transaction wrote, “We indicated that UST (United States Treasury) … wants to put in place a limitation on annual bonuses that assure that (AIG: 1.2104, -0.3796, -23.87%) executives/employees will not be enriched out of TARP funds.”
But the e-mail indicates AIG officials pushed back on the proposal. In a section of the e-mail discussing proposed limits on severance packages for AIG employees, the attorney wrote, “They were slack jawed at the idea of imposing the restriction throughout the entire population, especially worldwide.” AIG proposed that Treasury apply such limits “to a class of partners and senior partners (700).”
At another spot in the e-mail, the attorney said about AIG executives, “They will think about ways to deal with the ‘no enrichment’ point. In this connection they again raised the size of the applicable group and kept coming back to ‘700’ as a meaningful, and possibly workable, group for limitations.”
The e-mail also indicates that in their deliberations, government officials were concerned about the effect of compensation on recruiting and retaining AIG employees.
“We also indicated that all parties understand that the restrictions must be designed so that the business can be operated in a reasonable way, including in terms of recruitment and retention of employees,” the attorney wrote in the e-mail.
A key argument in AIG’s defense of its bonus practices has been that bonuses are needed to recruit and retain key employees.
A Treasury official in the department’s general counsel office, Stephen Albrecht, wrote in response to the attorney’s e-mail, “See below. Looks like AIG has some creative thinking to do, but we’ll need to decide to what extent we’re willing to bend.”
Government officials eventually decided to restrict compensation at AIG to just the top 75 company executives. The Treasury agreed to invest $40 billion into AIG.

Alan Colmes is leaving FNC this month.
I always liked seeing and listening to Hannity AND Colmes. Alan Colmes was the perfect example of why the biggest threat to U.S. sovereignty doesn’t come from international terrorism. It comes from within. Here’s a good example. Alan is arguing in support of terrorism to a former Israeli Special Forces Warrior/Hero:
I’ll miss everything about Alan; from his Marlena Dietrich eyebrows
to his tippy, tippy toes.

When I wake up yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes along with you
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door
All together, now:

From Carl Cameron’s report at Fox News (see below), it appears Gov. Palin is being stomped down, thrown under and run over by the bus driven by McCain campaign staffers. It’s obvious they’re trying to deflect blame for doing a lousy job. Gov. Palin has a job to return to where she enjoys an 80+% approval rating in a state where she is beloved. These behind-the-sceners not only did one of the worst jobs in presidential campaign history, now they’re effectively publicly declaring themselves as morally bankrupt, whiny milquetoasts. I doubt that there will be a line of prospective employers behind any of them.
