Obama bribes Orly

via my friend @D_R_Bastiches:

You know that Obama Campaign email everyone got, inviting you to a dinner with the President? As in, the email everyone but EVERYONE in America (anyone who ever contributed to the Obama campaign, or to any Democratic candidate, or anyone who ever drew a breath in the continental United States during the Obama Administration) got? Orly Taitz thinks it was meant for her. Oh yes she did:

the mass email Orly thinks was her personal invitation to dine with a frightened President Obama, surely to beg her to cease her efforts to unmask him as a gay Kenyan communist redistributionist.

What Can Joshua Treviño Teach Us About Humility?

So this happened:
August 15th: The Guardian announces the hiring of murder advocate Joshua Treviño.

Later that same day Treviño, responding to criticism of The Guardian's move, acts like an arrogant asshole.

August 24th: Upon realizing that they had just hired an amoral sociopath, and seeing that no article of his would ever be free from the stench emanating from all his previous writings, The Guardian takes a page from the Harriet Miers saga and fires Treviño's ass for something supposedly unrelated.

September 13th: The Guardian publishes an article by Max Blumenthal, who apparently has something that Treviño desperately wants, if Joshua's abrupt departure from all things Internet at the very moment of his firing is any indication.

Lesson: don't be a dick in victory, or you may be humiliated beyond expectation in defeat.
