Friday Quote & Bunny Blogging

This week’s quote is the intro voiceover to the hilariously goofy Troma film Monster In The Closet, which also features a scene set in “Watson Elementary School”:

The most mysterious, inexplicable and incredible events often take place in the most ordinary places. Usually these seemingly unexplainable occurrences are eventually explained. But every so often they remain mysteriously inexplicable. Sometimes it is best to accept the unexplainable, rather than search in vain for inexplicable explanations. For some things are simply unexplainable.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s wee bunnies…

Newt Loves/Hates The Constitution

This is remarkable:

Newt Gingrich on Sunday hammered at the nation’s judiciary system, saying that if a court’s decision was out of step with American popular opinion, it should be ignored.

There’s “no reason the American people need to tolerate a judge that out of touch with American culture,” Gingrich said on CBS’ Face the Nation, referring to a case where a judge ruled that explicit references to religion were barred from a high school graduation ceremony….

Host Bob Schieffer asked Gingrich how he planned to enforce that. Would you call in the Capitol Police to apprehend a federal judge, he asked.

“If you had to,” Gingrich said. “Or you’d instruct the Justice Department to send the U.S. Marshall in.”

But this is what makes it really genius:

Gingrich claims his tough stance is part of a key question going into the 2012 elections: “Do you want to move towards American exceptionalism, reassert the Constitution, reassert the nature of America, or do you, in fact, want to become a secular, European, sort of bureaucratic socialist society?”

So… apparently “reasserting the Constitution” means completely ignoring it when it doesn’t agree with popular opinion?  Or maybe Newt believes that American popular opinion is just instinctively attuned to the Constitution at all times?

In any case, if popular opinion is supposed to be the ultimate arbiter of what should be considered constitutional, then why do we even need a judiciary at all?

It All Depends On What The Meaning Of “Lower Middle-Income” Is…

YouTube Preview Image

I guess Mitt is running away with the tone-deaf primary now…

To hear Mitt Romney tell it, his two and a half years as a Mormon missionary in France in the late 1960s were tough times.  The places he was staying often had no working toilet, and certainly no baths or showers, he said just this past Sunday (in an effort to divert attention from the $10,000 bet he made Rick Perry).  He lived, he said, just like lower-middle income Frenchmen lived.

Turns out he was living in basically a palace, with servants, a chef, and multiple showers and bathrooms.  But I guess maybe it was poor compared to his accustomed standard of living.

Great Moments In Defense Strategy

James Murdoch explains that he wasn’t aware of the full extent of the News Of The World phone hacking scandal because he couldn’t be bothered to read all of an email from a company lawyer trying to warn him about a “nightmare scenario.”

Regardless of whether he’s lying or telling the truth, I think it’s safe to say that he really should never be allowed to manage anything ever again.

I thought this was kind of hilarious.  Gloria Borger worries that a tent full of clowns and elephants might turn into a circus.

Bobo Sort Of Gets It?

Amazing.  David Brooks actually acknowledges that Obama really isn’t nearly as anti-business and pro-regulation as Republicans keep claiming he is, and even admits that what regulation there is has not been the cause our chronic high unemployment.

He still seems to think Obama’s imposed too much regulation, just because.  But at least it’s progress of a sort.
