Morning Inspiration From Constitutional Law Reading

It is tempting to pretend that [convicts] on death row share a fate in no way connected to our own, that our treatment of them sounds no echoes beyond the chambers in which they die. Such an illusion is ultimately corrosive, for the reverberations of injustice are not so easily confined...and the way in which we choose those who will die reveals the depth of moral commitment among the living.
-Justice Brennan, dissenting in 
McCleskey v. Kemp 481 U.S. 219 (1987)

Just A Country Boy From Arkansas

Holy fucking shit Bubba just nailed it. This speech is what moronic DC reporters immediately dub a "gamechanger." And this time they're right. It's refreshing to hear a politician who is as confident in the American people's ability to listen and understand complicated policy matters as he is in his own intellectual and rhetorical prowess. Mr. President, your turn to wonk it the fuck up.
