Nobody, but NOBODY does outrage like our Boston Maggie. With a mix of sarcasm and incisive logic (now and then) she can unscrew the legs of a stupid argument in the blink of an eye. Perhaps it comes naturally to the Irish Catholic crowd in Boston. Regarding Boston terrorism suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, apparently Republican Senator Lindsey Graham thinks we should bypass giving the accused the rights due an American citizen who is a defendant in a capital case. Which makes Graham as despicable as anyone else who asserts such nonsense, irrespective of which side of the aisle they call home.
…like it or not, Tsarnaev is an American citizen. He gets due process. That’s it.
If we abridge the Constitutional rights of this piece of shit, we will be doing more harm than he or his brother could have hoped for.
Everyone is talking about “Boston Strong”. If we sell the Constitution down the river out of petty vengence, what is there to be strong for?
Read the whole thing. It is short, but oh-so well done. She nails it. It is not the people, nor the government, nor its officials, nor my seniors whom I am sworn to support and defend. It is the Constitution. The same document Senator Graham and every other Congressman was sworn to uphold. Irrespective of which side of the aisle.
So how ’bout we do it?
