This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

OK, like I say in my links to the side, I read Balkin mainly to make my blood pressure go up. Boy, how about this post. Just two points: The New York Times says that the media wasn't critical enough of Bush's plan? C'mon, guys, we can't do it all by ourselves!!!! Why can't anyone else see the truth but us? Umm... maybe it's because IT'S NOT THE TRUTH, you boneheads! (see, Martin? Now that's ripping someone.) Second point: Balkin states:

This Administration is handling the press quite well for its own short term political purposes, but the techniques of diversion and disinformation it has perfected are not good for the long term health of a free press in this country.

Umm... sure. Again, that Clinton guy had nothing to do with “spin”. It's Bush who has perfected spin. RIIIIGHT. And remember, this guy is a constitutional law professor at the most prestigious law school in the country, and he can say straight up that Bush is a liar – but Ashcroft is crushing dissent!!!
