They’re Going to Deport Piers Morgan

With the Deport Piers Morgan Petition up over 100,000 signatures, Jay Carney offered the following comment:

“it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.”

Note that he didn’t say “Piers Morgan cannot be deported because hasn’t violated the conditions of his visa.”

Lots of wiggle room here.

Wonder if they’ll pull him out from underneath the bus before they fly him home?

UPDATE: Jay Carney posted the official response.

Again, he did NOT include the phrase I used above.

  1. I wanted to deport Piers Morgan over something way more serious, but it doesn’t seem to be illegal. I can’t believe we don’t have common sense laws to restrict the ownership and usage of pretentious assault accents.

    How many more, Mr. Speaker? How many more?

  2. “it is worth remembering that the freedom of expression is a bedrock principle in our democracy.”

    1) Should we even have to explain to the mouthpiece of the President of the United States that we don’t live in a democracy, we live in a representative republic?

    2) Where was that “freedom of expression” when Harry Reid was trying to silence Rush Limbaugh?

  3. Word is that, despite the petition submitted, Lord Unctuous Umbrage-Underbum, late of Pooves by the Loo, will not be deported. The reason given by the White House is that even toffee-nosed, non-citizen Saxon snarkers are protected by First Amendment rights.

    In other news, the White House still insists that U.S. Catholic institutions must dispense birth control and that religious principles are no excuse from Obamacare regulations.
