    Default Great article by Alexander Cockburn

    The American Conservative -- A Long Train of Abuses


    The description? "A socialist writing a libertarian article for a conservative magazine." He really drives home the point that George W. Bush is merely the latest and worst in a long series of U.S. presidents who have abrogated the Constitution at almost every turn. BTW, I met Alexander Cockburn, and he is a very charming man who can really hold some liquor. Gorgeous niece (Olivia Wilde of House), too.

    Cockburn, I read it quickly thinking is this a hoax?... is he pulling my strings?

    Ohh man. I would so bust his balls all the time for that name!
