2008 yet?

Favorite law quote of the day

"It is during our most challenging and uncertain moments that our Nation's commitment to due process is most severly tested; and it is in those times that we must preserve our commitment at home to the principles for which we fight abroad."

- Justice O'Conner, writing for the U.S. Supreme Court, Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, 542 U.S. 507 (2004) (emphasis mine)
You'll get used to it

Midland... Reminds me of Texas...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Kerry's Iraq remark

Here's what Kerry was supposed to say:
"I can't overstress the importance of a great education. Do you know where you end up if you don't study, if you aren't smart, if you're intellectually lazy? You end up getting us stuck in a war in Iraq."

But the comment, that was designed to criticize the President, was mangled in delivery.

Here's what Kerry actually (and unfortunately) said:
"You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't you get stuck in Iraq."
