Underwear bomber files notice of appeal. And deserves it.

As WaPo reports:

A Nigerian man who was given a mandatory life sentence for trying to blow up a packed jetliner using a bomb sewn into his underwear on Christmas Day 2009 has appealed the punishment.
His lawyer is right:
Anthony Chambers, an attorney assigned to help Abdulmutallab, said a mandatory life sentence was cruel and unconstitutional punishment for a crime that didn’t physically hurt anyone except Abdulmutallab.
I mean, the man is practically a walking martyr. And the term "man" is, strictly speaking, a bit of a hyperbole here.

Heh. I guess that means you can shoot at Obozo as long as you don't actually hit him, eh?

 If you get a permit from Secret Service, I guess.

Anyway, the pantybomber is eagerly expected in the prison, to join the prison choir, in the falsetto section.

They are jailing him then for extreme stupidity.

 That too.
