i've lost the will to rant


However, given that the coming Supreme Court nomination is likely to be the most important and far-reaching act of the Obama presidency, potentially shaping the very direction of our country for a generation to come, I strongly recommend that you read these two posts by Glenn Greenwald:

The case against Elena Kagan

The long, clear, inspiring record of Diane Wood

And just in case you're concerned that your blood pressure is too low, this should solve that problem.

To quote Greenwald quoting John Cole:
The message is clear- you torture people and then destroy the evidence, and you get off without so much as a sternly worded letter.

If you are a whistle blower outlining criminal behavior by the government, you get prosecuted.
As he notes, I guess there're at least some circumstances in which the Obama DOJ is willing to "look backward" after all.
