Pingouin a Paris

weird scenes inside the influence mine (part I)

I made my annual pilgrimage to the Supreme Court this morning to hear oral argument in the Newdow "Pledge of Allegiance" case. You know, that guy with a medical degree, a law degree, some kind of "reverend" status among atheists (?) and no doubt an ego the size of California, who claims his born-again ex-gf forced him to have sex in Yosemite National Park, causing her to conceive this kid who he apparently can't get custody of and so has decided to take it out on kiddo's school district for supposedly "coercing" said kid into reciting "under God" in her Pledge of Allegiance each morning. (Her mom said it was OK.) Or something. Ain't that America?
