Even the rightwing rag, the New York Daily News is condemning these 47, and I didn’t realize RAND FUCKING PAUL was in that mix. I guess he didn’t want to be chastised for not applauding crazily enough again. Here is the delicious (and yet, containing nuttery) thing written in that red box:
THE NEWS SAYS
REGARDLESS OF President Obama’s fecklessness in negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran, 47 Republican U.S. senators engaged in treachery by sending a letter to the mullahs aimed at cutting the legs out from under American’s commander-in-chief. We strenuously condemn their betrayal of the U.S. constitutional system.

Again, fecklessness… the word used when you know no other words and have nothing real to say. It flies from a rightwinger’s mouth right now like any other fed talking point. And yet even these people can’t stand by and watch this level of disregard for our nation’s commander, even if he is a little too dark in the skin for their feckless tastes. And if you want to talk fecklessness, NY Daily, you put “DEMS: Stunt risks a war” rather than just declaring that it does. It’s not just Democrats saying so. It’s just fact. It’s called the Logan Act:
“Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply himself, or his agent, to any foreign government, or the agents thereof, for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.”
Americans want treason charges for them, and that’s just awesome to see. You can sign the petition demanding that happen here. I regret that I have but one signature to condemn these betrayers of my country. Can you imagine Turtle man in orange? It’s not pretty. But it’s a consummation devoutly to be wished.
