John Bolton and war criminal, John “crush the testicles of the children” Yoo wrote an op-ed  titled, “Restore the Senate’s Treaty Power” which was featured in the Sunday’s edition of the NYT.

The framers of the Constitution designed the treaty process with a bias against “entangling alliances,” as Thomas Jefferson described them in his first inaugural address. They designated the Senate as the body responsible to protect the interests of the states from being bargained away by the president in deals with foreign nations. The framers required a supermajority to ensure that treaties would reflect a broad consensus and careful, mature decision-making.

America needs to maintain its sovereignty and autonomy, not to subordinate its policies, foreign or domestic, to international control. On a broad variety of issues — many of which sound more like domestic rather than foreign policy — the re-emergence of the benignly labeled “global governance” movement is well under way in the Obama transition.

Their words are hypocrisy at it’s best or maybe they are trying to reinvent themselves as Conservative in the aftermath and rumble of the Bush Administration?  I find it disgusting and reprehensible that either of these men believe they deserve or should be allowed a seat at the table of discussion when it comes to the affairs of the U.S. going forward.  They do, however deserve similair fates behind bars.

On Sunday, Fox Noise had an unremarkable interview with Bush Sr., it was unremarkable until one of the questions focused on his son’s, President Bush’s record of FAILURES, then the interview turned comical. Bush Sr. suggested we use the Google to learn about his son’s mistakes.

 “His mother and father” are “very proud of him,” Bush said. Host Chris Wallace pointed out that the former president had acknowledged somefailures in his son’s two terms and asked him to elaborate. “No! You can go back to your, what do you call it, your Google, and you figure out all that,” Bush responded.

Needless to say I had to do it, I used the Google to “figure out all that” about “Bush’s Failures” as Bush Sr. suggested and here are the results:

Results 110 of about 3,410,000 for Bush’s Failures. (0.33 seconds) 

I bet Bush Sr. is wishing he knew a little more about the Google about right now, Ouch!  But I thought the results would be higher.

The AP is reported this morning that Al Franken is slated to fill Minnesota’s senate seat after weeks of ballot disovery, recounting and court petitions.  But seriously, am I the only person who is wondering where in the hell all of the uncounted ballots were located? Were they just sitting in a box, a hefty bag? and why were they excluded in the intial election? 

The state Canvassing Board was poised to certify the results of the recount in Minnesota’s grueling Senate election in Al Franken’s favor _ but that doesn’t mean the race is definitely over.

The board was to meet Monday and was expected to declare which candidate received the most overall votes from nearly 3 million ballots cast. The latest numbers showed Franken, a Democrat, with a 225-vote lead over Republican Sen. Norm Coleman, who led Franken on election night.

Ah, but with only a 225 vote lead by Franken the GOP promises to hold up the matter while “litigation” is pending. So in other words don’t expect a decision until all legal challenges have been exhausted by the GOP or sometime when hell freezes over.
