The Philadelphia Inquirer: Fish Wrap

By Wyatt Earp | March 2, 2010

And that is being very generous, because most fish wouldn’t be caught dead wrapped in this useless rag. The newspaper, and its even more despicable sister paper, The Daily News – has been in bankruptcy for over a year now, and after reading opinion pieces like this, it is easy to see why:

Here’s what now qualifies for publication in the Sunday edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer. I have to say, of all the lefty opinion pieces I stumble upon that veer into pure fantasy, the ones involving POTUS and SCOTUS are my very favorite. The thought of taking a brush to the constitutional canvas seems to bring out the artist in them:

This may come as a surprise to some people, but the U.S. Constitution does not specify the size of the Supreme Court…

So if nine justices is not writ in stone, the embattled President Obama should deal with this hostile conservative/reactionary court by adding three members.

Had Roosevelt needed his court-packing plan, he would have had to do a better job of winning over the public. Kentucky Sen. Alben Barkley complained that Roosevelt was a “poor quarterback” on the court plan. That’s an easy enough mistake for Obama to avoid. He can easily be a quarterback for change on a court that will give the president continued grief as he tries to implement his agenda.

So in the opinion of the Philadelphia Inquirer, if Obama cannot effect CHANGE! with a supermajority, he should just “tinker” with the Constitution until he can initiate his radical agenda. Hey, why stop there? Let’s have the president use Executive Privilege to add ten more Senators and twenty more Congressmen, too!

And if that fails, maybe he can just appoint himself King? *spit*

    Wow!! What a load of socialistic tripe. If Gen. George McClellan could famously say about the NYT during his time: “That treasonous sheet!!”, we know that you can come up with something cool to assure your fame throughout the ages regarding comments on the PI and TDN. Give it a shot Wyatt!! Maybe something like: ” In Philidelphia, the seat of freedom for our young nation, why do its papers now champion its loss?”

    Or simply: F*** ‘em then feed ‘em beans!

    I saw this and was not very pleased with the idea of the Executive Branch stacking the Judicial Branch because the Legislative Branch consists of a bunch of crooks who can’t pass legislation (thank god). At this point the only thing we have in the federal government to protect us from the politicians is SCOTUS. And they walk a fine line at 5 to 4.

    Newspapers are only worth reading for the sports and classifieds. Other than that they are irrelevant. However, should Obama try to mess with the Supreme Court; take TFs advice to lock and load.

    That’s why I call them “The Enemy Press.”

    God help us! I’m thinking I’m agreeing with C/A. This could get even more ugly than it already has, in living color. :?

    Jon – To comment you have to register. I don’t do that. Besides, reading those comments usually give me an aneurysm. The ones there today were a mirage.

    Mark – And even with Sotomayor, they haven’t frakked things up yet.

    Fred – They don’t see the forest for the trees. We would be able to do the same thing when we win back power.

    Danny – My fellow cops and detectives always read the DN while waiting for court to start. I just shake my head. There’s hardly a more anti-cop publication in America than that rag.

    Minuteman – Even he’s not that big of an idiot. It would be political suicide for his entire Party.

    Captain – One Civil War in this country is plenty, thank you.

    Echosix – They are certainly not on the people’s side.

    Kate – Again, I don’t think it will happen, but the fact that the media is thinking it should scare people.

    Old NFO – And Michelle is his queen. *gack*
