Fixing History on the Fly

Tags: 

In a subversive fit of demonic possession, General JC Christian goes all Orwellian.

His post stirred something in my defeatist innards, hence these lyrics did flowy-go down my finger-tips. Of course, history will eventually prove that I didn't write these lyrics, and no such lyrics will have ever existed, so better enjoy them (or not) for now...

Peace Be Not Loud

Please tell me one more time--just one more time--why are we fighting in Iraq?

As penned by Associated Press writer Robert Weller:

DENVER - A homeowners association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.

Bush Iraq so-called coalition imploding

This announcement, just in time for Inerrant Boy's excellent adventure with Maliki in Jordan (of all places. And why not in the famously safe Green Zone, one may ask?) I'm sure they'll have lots to talk about. WaPo:

Britain said Monday it expects to withdraw thousands of its 7,000 military personnel from Iraq by the end of next year, while Poland and Italy announced the impending withdrawal of their remaining troops.

Republican governance completely discredited

Jeebus, they can't even pass a budget! Times:

For its part, Congress is awash in dithering over spending bills. RollCall reports today that because Republicans do not want to deal with the nine spending bills still pending, the likelihood of passing continuing resolutions into the next year is high. As is a recess date, especially for the House, of Dec. 8.

"Don't want to deal with"? This from the party of personal responsibility! [snicker] Read below the fold...

A conversation

[Frontpaged by lambert]

We get reruns of Meet The Press around here in the wee hours of Monday morning, around the time the night shift supervisor comes around to stick his John Hancock on all the paperwork the EPA requires me to fill out each night at work. He's getting settled in, and they're flashing the cover of the latest Newsweek up on the screen: "al-Sadr: The Most Dangerous Man In Iraq". I'm thinking, "This could get ugly..."

Motorcyle cop dies after crash while escorting Bush Hawaii photo-op motorcade

Was Bush responsible because the motorcade's speed didn't take account of rainy conditions?

International Herald Tribune:

A motorcycle officer injured last week while escorting President George W. Bush in the islands has died, police said. Steve Favela died on Sunday.

Favela, 30, and two other officers crashed their cycles as the presidential motorcade was traveling across Hickam Air Force Base to meet troops for breakfast early Tuesday.

Intersections in Real Time

Thread: 

Rewatching Babylon 5 via DVD -- I'm seeing eerie historical parallels to Guantanamo and the secret prisons in the way Earth treated its captured hero, John Sheridan. Looks like Cheney, et. al., thought these were training videos. Read below the fold...

Civil War? Something Worse? Two Perspectives

Departments: 

Recently, in the comments of this post reader and blogger Mark from Ireland made the suggestion that the term "civil war" isn't the right one to describe what's happening in Iraq right now. In response, I offer this devastating article by Nir Rosen. It is probably one of the top five articles I've read about Iraq since the war started, and I cannot encourage you enough to read it. And reread it. Read below the fold...

The massive suckitude of centrists: It's all about the Rolodexes

It's all about the Rolodexes.

With our famously free press, it really is that simple. All the capital the Beltway 500 has is in their Rolodexes: those relationships. And since the names in those Rolodexes are all either Republicans, Republican enablers, or DINOs, it's only natural that the 500 would continue to book them, quote them, and teabag them. It's kinda like refusing to sell your house when the housing market's collapsing. Read below the fold...

A year late and a few billion short

I give thanks that we won't have to listen to this shithead after 2009:

In his Saturday radio address, Bush said Americans are grateful to those who rallied after hurricanes Katrina and Rita to bring food, water and hope to people who lost everything.

"We renew our commitment to help those who are still suffering and to rebuild our nation's Gulf Coast," Bush said.

Big words, Sahib, that I translate "Better luck next hurricane." Read below the fold...
