Taking Back the Language

Okay, we all know that the word surge Bush has been using for "escalation" is never to pass our lips, right? Unless we're talking about natural forces like those which accompany hurricanes. The escalation is not a natural force. Read more about Taking Back the Language

Stay with me here: We Can't leave Iraq because of the Clenis

I'm so mad at my dad.

We have an iron-clad rule about not talking politics, and I sorta slipped and invoked Al Gore by repeating Atrios' joke. I said, "I just talked to my brother (in Stamford, CT). He said it was 70 degrees. Damn you, Al Gore." Read more about Stay with me here: We Can't leave Iraq because of the Clenis

Yet another authoritarian pedophile (though not yet in rehab)

This one's a neo-Nazi. But he's not into teen pages; he's into little girls. Southern Poverty Law Center:

Kevin Alfred Strom, a major American neo-Nazi leader for almost 20 years, was arrested by federal agents in Virginia Thursday night and charged with possession of child pornography and witness tampering.

Mesmerized by Nancy's Eyes

Bob "Ol' Crankypants" Schieffer grilled Madame Speaker Pelosi relentlessy asking her what the Dems are prepared to DO to stop Bush's Bullshit Surge. The Dems have come up with a clever answer:

"If the president chooses to escalate the war, in his budget request, we want to see a distinction between what is there to support the troops who are there now," she said in an exclusive interview on Face The Nation.

OK, I give. We're fucking doomed

China, I'm your biggest fan! (China's a wonderful, diverse, inventive, rich commercial civilization with high art and great food--and a feudal past, just like ours, and an imperial history, just like ours, and huge extremes of weath and povery, just like we have. Except many thousands of years older, and with billions of people, not millions.) Read more about OK, I give. We're fucking doomed

Clark: Do the math. Bush surge is bullshit

General Wes Clark writes in The Independent:

The odds are that President George Bush will announce a "surge" of up to 20,000 additional US troops in Iraq. But why? Will this deliver a "win"? The answers: a combination of misunderstanding and desperation; and, probably not.

Times UK: Israel plans bunker-busting nuclear strike on Iran


[UPDATE below: Israeli denials]


ISRAEL has drawn up secret plans to destroy Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities with tactical nuclear weapons.

Two Israeli air force squadrons are training to blow up an Iranian facility using low-yield nuclear “bunker-busters”, according to several Israeli military sources.

Oh. "Low-yield." I guess that's OK then. Read more about Times UK: Israel plans bunker-busting nuclear strike on Iran

One of the more unfortunate headlines I've read

Bush fleshes out Iraq strategy details

"Fleshes out," eh? Like with human flesh?

As in a human "sacrifice"?

All on the altar of Bush's ego (and for the bottom line of winger billionaires, of course). Read more about One of the more unfortunate headlines I've read

Massive takedown of the winger blogs

And it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of Fascists.

By now, everyone's heard how the wingers tried to gin up a scandal about the supposed non-existence of AP Iraq source Jamil Hussein, and ended up getting him arrested by the "untidy" Iraqi government for talking to the press. Thanks for bringing freedom to yet another Iraqi, you silly bunts. Circle-jerking while Baghdad burns... Read more about Massive takedown of the winger blogs

What the Fuck is the Matter With Kansas?

Just saw this posting about Rookie Congressmen/women over at Crooks & Liars.

Gibson: Would you vote in favor of money to support another 20,000 to 40,000 troops in Iraq?

Boyda: I think we're going to vote to support what the commander in chief and head of military asks to do. At least, I am certainly going to vote to support it.

Gibson: If he wants the surge, he'll get it.

Holy Joe: Allah is Lord

Right from the AEI transcript:

"HOLY JOE: [The majority of Iraqis are] grateful to God that we liberated them from Saddam Hussein."

"God"? Allah, right?

I guess Lieberman's views on orthodoxy--and Exodus 20:7--must be more flexible than I had imagined.... Read more about Holy Joe: Allah is Lord

One of the Company Boys

It looks like the new DHS Chief will be one of the Company's down home farm boys. It's good that there are so many in private sector that can be depended upon to do what must be done when Congress cuts off funding. Read more about One of the Company Boys
