Senator George Allen (R VA) Is A Traitor
You see, the Military Commissions Act of 2006 isn't just any bill. It expressly does away with Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution (Habeas Corpus), the 5th, and 6th Amendments. It is an violation of a senator's oath of office, which reads as follows:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God....and Allen's 'yea' vote makes him an enemy of the Constitution. Thus, he's a traitor for having betrayed his state and his country.
But are we surprised? In a word, "No!" Because even setting aside all his youthful indiscretions, Allen is still a scum. The man endorsed Oliver North for the US Senate (you know...a felon is OK, just as long as it's a Republican felon). Allen remained silent while his campaign officials impugned his gubernatorial opponent for being a woman and for being single. He's opposed celebrating Martin Luther King Day for as long as he's been in office and endorses revisionist views of the Civil War and southern heritage that make no mention of slavery. In short, he's exactly the sort who would blindly follow his president in establishing tyranny.
Just what we need - another fucking preznit named George w/ "father" issues who needs to prove he's "manly."
Ms. Cracker, you can't even really call him a 'carpetbagger', can you. My bet's on Webb. I think that Virginians, especially in the Northern counties, are sick of guys like George Allen.
R-bE, I'm inclined not to focus on his youth except in how it shows through as an adult. Many people grow out troubled childhoods. I'm with Tina. My disgust is for the party that smears the sister (and any other critics that show up).
but am i surprised - no
as lots of slimy, yucky jerks have been crawling out of baby bush's ass lately
AZG yeah, but Allen may be the slimiest. Well OK...next to Santorum. OK...next to Frist. OK...next to...
I think this is the real oath these dorks have taken:
"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will subvert and destroy the Constitution of the United States to the benefit of all who agree with the president, foreign and domestic; that I will bear false witness and untruthful allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation for a fee, with mental reservations and purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter as instructed to do so by the White House: So help me Gosh."
Hey Snave, how about you do on Smith and I'll link it? Gotta stick to the Senators I know something about. :-)
