Welcome to Oppositeville

"Moderates" John McCain (R-AZ) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT) urge drastic measures in dealing with a naturalized U.S. citizen like Faisal Shahzad:  McCain doesn't think he deserves to get his Miranda rights.  Lieberman says strip them of their citizenship:
 ā€œIā€™m now putting together legislation to amend that to [specify that] any individual American citizen who is found to be involved in a foreign terrorist organization, as defined by the Department of State, would be deprived of their citizenship rights,ā€ Lieberman said Tuesday.

And coming in to defend the radical leftist idea of not just scrapping inconvenient constitutional barriers?  Um, Glenn Beck:  
"He is a citizen of the United States, so I say we uphold the laws and the Constitution on citizens...If you are a citizen, you obey the law and follow the Constitution. [Shahzad] has all the rights under the Constitution...We don't shred the Constitution when it is popular. We do the right thing."
There's your head-scratcher for the day!
