Well-written, and flaming.

That doesn't surprise me. As 'Ryder' previously said it happens both ways and it doesn't matter whether there's a 'D' or an 'R' after your name. Follow the money, follow the money, follow the money. Lo siento mucho. [May be some day we'll come up with a better system - meanwhile 'hope and change'] What a joke!


Look who's on Obama's payroll:

(from the NY Post)
"It's just insane that a lawyer who defended Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard -- and who sought constitutional rights for terrorists -- could be one of the Obama administration's top legal officials.

But there's Neal Katyal, occupying a top perch at the Justice Department as the principal deputy solicitor general.

Then there's Jennifer Daskal -- who just months ago was an anti-Guantanamo activist. Now she's in Justice's National Security Division -- working on detainee issues.

This really shows who's side this reprehensible administration is really on, just in case you couldn't figure it out for yourself.

Borderline treason if you asked me.


None of those things are illegal Brian, as I am sure you are aware. Our system should always try to provide an adequate defense for the accused, whilst leaving any emotion out of it.

Interesting that Breitbrat used the word "salary", having worked as a contractor in the past that's not a word that's typically used for compensation. Definitely suggests stronger ties.


Oh I see, so anything Obama does is cool as long as it's not illegal. I just need to get my mind right.


Yah, no kidding. Don't pay your taxes, OK. Employ undocumented workers OK (just don't get caught). Get blown by an intern, OK (hee hee). Oh, but if you're a Weissbach (ie: not a leftie), then fuggedaboudit!


Borderline treason? You DO know, dont you, that a courtroom attorney's job is to defend the client regardless of how he or she feels about that client, or believes him or her to be innocent or guilty?


Not on topic but as I sit here watching our beloved POTUS give the SOTU speech I can't help but chuckle as I see (sitting in back of him) bobble and botox heads.
bobble head Biden (screen left) constantly nodding approval (like a good VP is supposed to do) and screen right the botox lady Pelosi stretched to the limit of her facial ability.
His speeches (his strongest talent) are getting weaker and weaker and I think voters are starting to realize that he just DOESN'T WALK THE TALK. He's a corporate elitist, just 'a shade' left of center. If this wasn't so serious, it would be hilarious.


It is off topic. Loyal Americans know better.


Actually, I think you, sparky, joanie (and others) are having your doubts. And YOU are no one to question American loyalty.


It may have been a dumb move by O'Keefe. I'm on the sidelines in this one until all of the pertinent information is in.


Oh, btw coiler, sparky, joanie: your hero JE is now a free and single man, here's your chance.


Duff, you truly need a hobby.
And no, I do not have any doubts about Obama. Just about you.

Paul Johnson

So I suppose that O'Keefe's exposure re: Acorns promotion of prostitution by underaged illegal aliens, is now non-existant. I'm sure he had something good on the La. senator that has been effectively covered up by blaming him for some kind of illegal wiretapping or whatever. Typical leftist tactics. The gig is up. You have been exposed and will continue to fall. RIP


They were employees and they were fired. End of story. Except from people who have nothing else to talk about.

Go read a good book.


BTW, has Mr. Bean fired O'Keefe?


Jig is up, not gig is up.


And where did that ridiculous jumpsuit come from? Only on the right...

I bet it comes with Larry Craig's approval.

Jason Andersen

Whoever did that picture....you're a hella nifty satirical-topical artist...I actually laughed out loud. Appropos and effing hilarious.


What did he and the others end up uncovering in Landrieu's office ? Sounds like stonewalling and avoidance negligance of the senator in failing to respond to her constituents.

Vigilantee justice is sometimes in order - like maybe here. Just sayin'


Sounds like they broke the law. Vigilante justice is the last refuge of losers who refuse to vote.


Breaking the law is ok because she didnt answer phone calls? Right.


Before you all leap to conclusions, how about getting all of the facts ? Something that media sources often overlook.

"Vigilante justice is the last refuge of losers who refuse to vote."

Oh, You must mean with groups like ACORN.


No, folks like klan wannabes and McVeigh types. Your side has worn out so many copies of Birth of a Nation.


Right - keep playing that tired old race card, curley. LMAO !


How many of your fellow gubmint employees share your POV?


I think you meant SUV didn't you. I don't think you can get more than seven in one of those things.

American Attorneys

totally agree, is a shame, one day he was aa Icon and now a clown.... thats so sad

payroll denver

The employee should be fired.It is very shameful.
