While our alleged media wastes endless hours and days over Palin's Revere revisionism and Anthony Wiener's wiener, important shit keeps being ignored. Among those things that shall not be discussed by the chattering classes is the fact that, thanks to Bush and Obama, it is now totally and completely legal for the executive branch to do the things that got Nixon into trouble. Thanks to Bush and Obama there is absolutely no check on the power the President wields. We now live in a defacto fascist state. Daniel Ellsberg had legal recourse - Bradley Manning does not.
