    • The Espionage Act Is Bad Law Even When It Is Used Against People I Despise Like Trump
      Back in June 2019, the New Yorker wrote an article lambasting the Espionage Act. The George W. Bush Administration pursued several government insiders for leaking classified information, but it was the Obama Administration that normalized the use of the Espionage Act against journalists’ sources.

Need to work again today. For some reason my employers continue to insist on productivity for money. It’s extortion, I tells ya’! In the meantime, here are some interesting pieces from around the web and the media:

  • On yesterday’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, David Kirkpatrick handicaps the Republican race and explains why John McCain is so hated by conservatives. One of the more interesting tidbits is that Rush Limbaugh says the McCain, Clinton and Obama are indistinguishable and that the emphasis for conservatives this election year should be to elect more conservatives to Congress. Uh-huh, I can see where he’s going with this. Terry’s been doing a lot of outstanding political interviews this yea. Subscribe to the podcast, You won’t be sorry. And contribute to your local public radio station if you have a few bucks. (The MacBook Air is MINE!)
  • Digby throws her two cents in on the McCain nomination and how he will fare against either Obama or Clinton. I agree that their going to throw national security issues at Obama but where Digby thinks they won’t stick, I don’t put anything past the GOP when they crank up the perception management techniques. Many voters see McCain as a maverick, moderate Republican, which he isn’t. He’s just not as fascist as the crazies at CPAC. But he looks sane in comparison to them so when they start to make Obama look like Robert Mugabe on steroids, McCain’s going to look good.
