Undercut our friends.  Embolden our enemies.  Diminish our country.
Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy

I Missed the Memo

I, Mr. Manifesto, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers [...]
