And in more serious news...

Congress has passed a bill giving the President unilateral authority to strip the right of habeus corpus from anyone he declares an "unlawful enemy combatant", including American citizens. The bill also effectively legalizes torture by allowing the President to secretly determine his own interpretation of Common Article 3 of the Geneva Conventions, and of course the consequences of that determination cannot be appealed by the people who will thusly be tortured, because their right to a habeus corpus hearing has been stripped.

The Republican leadership is shredding the Constitution. I'm fucking livid right now.
