Barack Obama is doing his best to become the object of my man crush. All Bob Barr's got going for him is a mustache. And Anthony Kennedy should be put in a time machine, returned to his childhood, raped by a child rapist, then put back in a time machine and returned to his mother's womb, and then aborted.Anthony Kennedy: King of America
And to think: Anthony Kennedy was supposed to be a replacement for Robert Bork. If Robert Bork gorged himself on yak feces until vomiting all over a copy of a Howard Stern book, Anthony Kennedy would be unfit to clean up the mess with his tongue. A replacement he ain't.
Firstly, he was the deciding vote in Planned Parenthood v. Casey, keeping American fetuses on their toes (or are they just ten extra toes the mother decided to grow in her gut?) since 1992. Now, today he was the deciding vote in Kennedy v. Louisiana (they now name cases after the justice assaulting the state's rights and the state he's assaulting), allowing child rapists to live out their natural lives watching cable television for free. (Someone should tell these two Utah girls there's an easier way to get their cable turned back on.)
In response to the embarrassment that is Anthony "At the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life" Kennedy, Barack Obama threw the Democrat Party playbook aside and spoke with common sense: "If a state makes a decision that under narrow, limited, well-defined circumstances the death penalty is at least potentially applicable, that that does not violate our Constitution." (This also gained him points with Persephone, who would love to serve on a capital punishment jury because there'd be the chance they'd let her throw the switch herself.)
Meanwhile, Bob Barr just has facial hair. It's time to step it up, Barr. Obama's winning my vote, like he's already won my heart.
