A note on the lighter side for Fathers Day

If you've ever thought that radical left—wing liberals aren't hilarious then you've never been to a site I found on Friday.  It's called the Wings of Justice, sponsored by BuzzFlash.com.  A completely serious site dedicated to honoring some of the most far—left in our society.  The person nominating the weekly winner receives a deluxe BuzzFlash embroidered baseball cap.

Past weekly winners include the usual list of lefties like Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Cindy Sheehan, Senator Russ Feingold, Mary Mapes, Howard Dean and the current Wings winner, Michael Berg.

My personal favorite is Chief Cecilia Fire Thunder from the Oglala Sioux.  Now I know you've probably never heard of Chief Fire Thunder but she's a pro—choice activist from South Dakota.  When you read how eloquently her nomination narrative flows, I know she'll be your favorite too.

'In the face of these ignorant, Neanderthal South Dakota men —— who, along with their anti—choice brethren, will never understand childbirth nor abortion until they experience it themselves —— a Native American woman stands up for the Constitution and a women's right to choose.'

I ask, 'Who can argue with a statement like that?'  One other person I noticed on the list was Patrick Fitzgerald for his indictment of Scooter Libby back in November of 2005.  So I started thinking, with the news this week that Karl Rove won't be indicted, who better to nominate for the Wings of Justice award than....

I hereby nominate Karl Rove as this weeks 'Wings of Justice' nominee.  I believe the fact that Karl will not be charged in this case is the epitome of justice under our fine legal system.  Since there was never the slightest possibility he could be charged under the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982, and Title 18, United States Code, Section 793, this is truely an upholding of all judicial fairness. 

As I'm sure you're aware, the IIPA of 1982 gives a specific timetable covering when this law applies.  An operative must have been covert within the past 5 years to be included under the law.  The 'inconvientent truth' is that Ms. Plame returned from her covert duties in 1997, so the law couldn't possibly apply.  Anyway, the fact that the laws of this land as established by the U.S. Constitution have trumped the wishful hopes of numerous liberal groups is reason to celebrate and submit this fine American as nominee for the 'Wings of Justice.'  Fly on brave Karl, fly on!

I haven't received a reply back yet but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he'll make it.  To be honest, I really just want the hat.  It would make a great Fathers Day gift.
