Four More Years! Four More Years!

No, I’m not talking about the presidential election. Just guessing what some faceless bureaucrat, with no oversight, will have the power to say when asked how much longer I have to stay in prison before I can be charged and tried for something, anything, in America.

But you know, Obama is, in some way, I’m sure, better than any Republican, so we should re-elect him. Enthusiastically. Right?

Kudos are due to Senator Mark Udall, who attempted to remove the indefinite detention element of the National Defense Authorization Act. Alas, his amendment failed, 38-60. 15 Democratic Senators were among those who voted to be able to detain Americans indefinitely. Two Republicans opposed doing so. You can see their votes here.
