Warning: Simpsons reference ahead...

Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware managed to disgrace himself and the entire United States Congress by successfully sneaking throught the RAVE Act without so much as a minute of debate. Even more disgracefully, Biden's Democratic colleagues—the same group that can't get enough debate over Miguel Estrada—felt no need to speak out against this travesty. Barring a presidential veto, the government will now assume the (unconstitutional) power to seize any property where an individual is using drugs, even if the owner has no knowledge or responsibility for said drug use. And keep in mind, this law will be enforced by John Ashcroft's Justice Department, the same people who executed Mountain Health Care over falsified antitrust charges.

For his "leadership" on this issue, Joe Biden has richly earned a place on my enemies list, right next to Jane Fonda, Daniel Schorr, and Jack Anderson. Oh, wait, that's Richard Nixon's enemies list...
