Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

The Democrats swear guest lecturer Barry Soetoro really is a Constitutional Scholar. Maybe. If by "constitution" you mean one like they have in Kenya.
No, that's not a birther joke. It's a socialist dictator joke.
Because only an aspiring tin pot third world dictator would dream of restricting our freedom of speech. But yesterday that's precisely what President Obama said he wants to do during an internet town hall on the website Reddit.
President Barack Obama endorsed a constitutional amendment that would restrict the free-speech rights of political activist groups by overturning the Supreme Court decision in the landmark Citizens United v FEC case that granted First Amendment rights to corporations.
"Over the longer term, I think we need to seriously consider mobilizing a constitutional amendment process to overturn Citizens United," Obama wrote during a question and answer session on the website Reddit on Wednesday.
OK first off, here's a not so minor nit — SCOTUS did not "grant" First Amendment rights to corporations. SCOTUS affirmed that the Constitution grants those rights. Free speech isn't like the mythical "right to privacy" Harry Blackmun pulled out of his ass back in 1973. The actual words "freedom of speech" are right there in black and white. They're kinda hard to miss.
And I don't remember anyone complaining about Super PACs back in 2008 when Obama was raising a billion dollars while eschewing the federal funding limits every other candidate had always honored.
But here we are in 2012. Obama's running for re-election, his fund raising is way down, and George Soros is being outspent by Sheldon Adelson and the Koch brothers. What's an evil billionaire gotta do to get an advantage around here?
Amend the Constitution! Make Fox News illegal! Shut down the websites of organizations that don't toe the Progressive line! Round up those Tea Partyers and read 'em the riot act while you're at it!
In Obama's world money in politics is only bad when it's Conservative money. The SEIU, NEA, AFL-CIO, Teamsters, they're all people. Simple, honest, hard-working people just trying to be heard above the din.
It's those gosh-darned corporations with their right-wing PACs that need to be silenced. They'll use every trick in the book to flim-flam our unsophisticated union brothers and sisters. And that's why corporate money in politics is bad. It could turn natural born Democrats into folks who think for themselves and everyone knows that'll only lead to trouble with a capital T.
Next thing you know a black guy could defect to the Republicans. What's a little censorship compared to a travesty like that?
