George W. Bush — speaking before the Economic Club of Grand Rapids, Michigan — on the serenity of a life lived without regret…
"Yeah, we water-boarded Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. I'd do it again to save lives."

Some folks, including these shrieking people, everyone with a conservative talk radio show and Mayor-for-life Michael Bloomberg, do not want Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's trial to take place in New York City.
Oh, and the holders of the federal purse strings, many members of Congress…
[S]enior administration officials confirm alternative trial locations are being sought because Congress is almost sure to deny President Obama the funds necessary to conduct the trials, as originally planned, in the federal courthouse mere blocks away from the Twin Towers[.]
The news that officials are considering a new venue comes as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who initially was open to the idea of holding the trials in the city, says he'd be "very happy" if the White House reconsidered. Security has been an issue, as well as cost, estimated at $200 million a year.
Wow. Okay, yeah, Manhattan prices are crazy. No wonder they're thinking about moving someplace else.

Keep America Safe — Liz Cheney's non-profit media nightmare factory — just released its response to Barack Obama's STFU address…
Oh God! This Barack Obama mad man is going get us all killed with his "dangerous" policies and casually open tuxedo shirt! He wants to give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a trial just a few blocks away from the World Trade Crater?! What if he escapes, climbs into a double-parked Boeing 757 and flies into it all over again?!
And what's all this about the underwear bomber being read his rights in accordance with the Supreme Court's landmark Miranda v. Arizona decision way back in 1966?! When did that shit start happening? It sounds kind of crazy and reckless to me. Especially with those terrifying minor chords being played over it. Terrifying!
All I can say is, thank God we have reasonable Liz Cheney around to keep America safe from not being scared shitless.

Finally, someone has the balls to accuse Barack Obama and Eric Holder of — for unfathomable reasons — talking Khalid Sheikh Mohammed into pleading innocent of terrorism…
If only all of Congress could be Michele Bachmann. And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
