While we're still talking about Harry Taylor I wanna bring up what I said over at Quaker Agitator:
The reason the emperor was so dignified is because he learned that was the best way to diffuse a disagreement. Learned that from his old man. Also, it allows him to keep up the illusion that reasonable people can disagree with his law breaking, that it's just a matter of opinion and that like a caring father, he will do that which is unpleasant (wiretapping, leaking, invading, etc.) in order to "protect" his children from the big bad terrorists. This is the big lie and the American people on the whole are buying it. They want to think everything is okay so they can go back to voting for their favorite American Idol and feeling like they have a say in things. Bread and circuses, babe. I'm with Harry. "I have never felt more ashamed of, nor more frightened, by my leadership in Washington, including the presidency."
It's like if somebody shoots your spouse and you scream about it, then the assailant says, "Well, of course, you're entitled to your opinion, but I actually think I'm a pretty nice guy." The President is wiping his butt with the Constitution of the United States of America. He should be kicked outta office. Now.
I also think it's sad that we're not at a tipping point about this yet. That the Harry Taylors and Helen Thomases become instant blogospherian heroes is an indication of a vacuum of truth in the MSM universe. The tide is turning, but not fast enough for me.
