Sketch artists?

Watercolors of mass destruction?

From TPM:

Standing in front of the Supreme Court this morning, a group of Republican lawmakers railed against the court system run out of the building behind them. A sign affixed to the plexiglas podium each spoke at in turn spelled out the reasons for their fears. "Protect our homeland," it read. "Keep terrorists out of America."

The justice system laid out in the Constitution, they said, is just too weak to protect American citizens from wiley terror suspects. From "activist judges" to courtroom sketch artists, the group reeled off a list of reasons the Obama administration decision to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to the U.S. for trial could quite possibly end in, as Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) suggested, a nuclear attack on the United States.

Well, to quote Maj. "King" Kong: "I've been to one world's fair, a picnic and a rodeo, and that's the stupidest thing I ever heard...."

I wonder if these fear-mongering GOP morons are fond of Stephen Sondheim: "Send in the clowns... don't bother, they're here."
