The facts are these: Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab, a Nigerian, an affiliate of Al Qaeda, a Muslim, a terrorist, a recent visitor to a breeding ground for Al Qaeda operatives (Yemen), identified on international terrorist watch lists, whose father warned the U.S. Embassy two weeks ago about his son’s radical jihadi perspective and religious views becoming militant and extremist, whose visa was revoked by Britain, who was allowed to keep his U.S. visa, was allowed to board without a passport, who the TSA deemed inappropriate for the no-fly list due to lack of credible evidence against him, attempted to detonate a bomb aboard Northwest Flight 253, causing it to go kaboom as it descended to the Detroit airport. According to our Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, the system worked.
It is no secret that Senator Max Baucus, the primary architect of the Senate’s health care reform bill , was as drunk as a skunk while drafting the bill, as hopefully were his Democrat counterparts, as it would be a sad state of affairs if the Democrats were really that stupid. Being lethally intoxicated is a much more acceptable excuse for their antics.
For an unparalleled auditory taste of incoherency, please watch one of this country’s more esteemed Democrats at work:

If Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid put their collective heads together 2000 years ago and penned front page news about the birth of Christ, this would be the result:
The Left, since the release of Sarah Palin’s book, Going Rogue, and its million plus sales in a matter of weeks, have been wandering the streets in a benighted stupor, tugging at their unkempt hair, and shrieking at whomever will listen with their question of “why”? “Why is she popular, why is she on television, why is she on magazine covers, why, why, why?” “This is Sarah Palin, not Barack Obama, why?”
I confess. I am a racist of the most nefarious caste. Indeed, a garden variety racist, I am not; I have not wasted my time with the intolerance of other races; I never understood the point of advocating industrial racism at a governmental level; I do not believe my race is necessarily superior to another. No, sir, my racism breaches the boundaries of decency. I am a racist of the most malefic sort. I disagree with almost the entirety of Barack Obama’s performance so far as president. I am white, Barack Obama is black, I disagree, and that, according to the Left’s consensus gentium, makes me a racist. Case closed.
My interest was piqued by the title of the article, Why the Stupak Amendment to the Healthcare Reform Bill is Unconstitutional, by Marci Hamilton. Assuming the title was surely a play on words, as the title is nonsensical in nature, and even within the confines of the mildly learned, the Stupak Amendment was the only component of the health care reform bill that could remotely be construed as constitutional, I settled in for an au courant display of constitutional prowess. The author, Professor Marci A. Hamilton, according to her profile, holds the Paul R. Verkuil Chair in Public Law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, where she is the founding Director of the Intellectual Property Law Program. She has been a visiting scholar at Princeton Theological Seminary, the Center of Theological Inquiry, and Emory University School of Law.
The health care reform bill that passed the House of Representatives, as well as the language in the Senate’s health care reform bill, have generated an unhealthy and contentious debate regarding the limited versus unlimited powers of the federal government. This is a debate about the soul of the United States. The heart and soul of the Constitution and this country’s founding principles are threefold: 1) individual rights and liberty, 2) free market ideas and national free trade, and 3) an expressly limited federal government. Barack Obama and the Democratic Party have shepherded Congress’ blatant usurping of the Constitution by violating all three of the above founding principles, which would be unprecedented, if not for FDR’s monarchical reign.
