And the other video in our “Dangerous and offensive Leftist douche bag” category is from none other than The Banking Queen, who believes HE is the arbiter of who in America is deserving, and who is not. Also from The Blaze (“Barney Frank: Double-dip estate tax is not punishment because heirs didn’t do anything to deserve it.”):

Oh, Congressman Frank, if only everyone, including you, Sir, got what they truly deserve.

Update: Washington Examiner, Obama’s mystery proposal to regulate the Internet

If President Obama wants his executive branch to resemble the opaque, power-hungry political machinations in Chicago, he seems to be succeeding in the area of Internet regulation…

…Federal courts will almost certainly strike down anything the FCC adopts Tuesday, just as they did earlier this year. Congress will also have its chance to undo Genachowski’s handiwork through the Congressional Review Act. But why should we have to go this far to rein in a government agency supposedly run by people who took an oath to “support and defend” our Constitution? Is Obama unable to make his own appointees obey the law? Either way, the new Congress should hold Obama accountable for what the FCC is now doing in his name.

Update 2: At The American Spectator, Al Sharpton Helping FCC Design Rush Limbaugh ‘Free Speech’ Show Trials

December 21 is the darkest day of every year. This year it will be especially dark due to the last of the 2010 lunar eclipses.

Thus it is the perfect day for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to vote to take over in unsanctioned fashion the Internet —which they are currently scheduled to do.

FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has in fact conducted the entire process leading up to this unelected bureaucrat Web power grab shrouded in shadow. One of the many authoritarian facets of this authoritarian procedure has been the lack of any public hearings on the new Internet order on which the FCC is about to vote.

This is a move to commandeer control of one-sixth of the nation’s economy — we should at least be given an opportunity to weigh in prior, right?

Apparently not — because apparently the FCC is looking into warping beyond all recognition its definition of “public hearing” — with the Reverend Al Sharpton lending a hand.

Public hearings would instead be used to drag unfavorables like Rush Limbaugh before the Commission to “explain how they justify” their availing themselves of their First Amendment rights. And to threaten their stations’ broadcast licenses should they fail the FCC’s definition of “justification.”…
