Don't Mock the Constitution...

It's sad, but this is one of the big reasons why I really like Obama:

Obama to Palin: 'Don't Mock the Constitution'

It's sad because one candidate shouldn't need to tell another candidate this, but in today's political climate we do need someone who actually remembers what it means to be real citizen who believes in their country and the rule of law, not just some jack ass who waves a flag and uses it and their bible to look down on and attack anyone they deem unworthy.


I love this quote:

"We don't always catch the right person," he said. "We may think it's Mohammed the terrorist, but it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You might think it's Barack the bomb-thrower, but it might be Barack the guy running for president."

He's taking ownership of the comments that people are always making about Barack Osama and such. Pointing out that he could be caught up in this sort of madness... which takes the wind out of the jokes and jabs.
Yeah, no kidding.

It's a little depressing to realize how few politicians could actually do that and how few of them actually look at how their actions will affect the lives of the non elite normal working folks.

I bet you if more congress critters had to suffer thanks to various terror watchlists, those lists would get a hell of a lot shorter and more accurate.
