Sen. Schumer at ESPA 2009 Fall Dinner: ‘If Dick Cheney Can Support Same-Sex Marriage, So Can Every Senator’

Speaking last week at a fundraising dinner for the top New York gay rights group ESPA, Senator Chuck Schumer articulated a far broader vision for same-sex marriage than he or most Democrats typically state publicly. “If Dick Cheney can support (same-sex) marriage, so can every Senator.”

Appeals Court Says Ex-Detainee Can Sue Ashcroft, Rejects Legal Immunity Claims

It just keeps coming and coming and somehow Bush and Cheney avoid it all.  Ashcroft and Yoo have their necks on the block.

This was a 3 judge panel that issued their finding that Abdullah al-Kidd can sue Ashcroft.  And these judges were appointed by the Bush Administration.

I am a strong proponent of keeping us safe from terrorism, but this is beyond the pale what the Bush Administration did.  And worse, these people will end up hating us and then what.  Of course al-Kidd is an American but I’m sure he’s very bitter.  I hope he wins his case and Ashcroft will have to pay him big bucks.  They really need to learn that they just can’t arbitrarily seize someone just because he’s a Muslim and looks creepy.

I do believe we have our fill of domestic terrorists that are killing Abortion Doctors and anyone that disagrees with their loony ideals.
