Meanwhile, in between watching hoops today...

...I found two outrageous items.
First, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Obama administration is contemplating releasing some Guantanamo detainees--right here in the USA.

And then there's this, concerning Obama and the AIG bonuses:
"President Obama has expressed outrage over the AIG bailouts. “I’m angry too,” he says. He wasn’t told by the Treasury secretary for days, the White House says. Why are Republicans letting him get away with it? President Obama rammed through the stimulus bill — over Republican objections — that explicitly protected the AIG bonuses."
Read the whole thing, especially the language of the bill.
Obama either didn't read the bill, or did and is, ahem, blowing smoke.
