"Ruling class"

Nice to see that useful bit of micro-rhetoric make its way into one of Digby's posts.

Not only is "ruling class" true, it points out how badly they're doing their job, for any definition of "ruling class" that doesn't equate to outright klepotracy being good. Read more about "Ruling class"

Thanks!

Bizzaro World: Holocaust "Conference"

WTF. That's about all I have to say. Except for this: the absurdity of the belief that you know what an all-powerful invisible being, who controls the destiny of everything in the universe, thinks and wants is beyond lunacy. Imagine what the world would be like if everyone making that claim were ridiculed and ignored. Read more about Bizzaro World: Holocaust "Conference"

General in Pentagon Christianist video also abused rank to solicit campaign contributions for Republicans

What a surprise:

Featured in the video are four generals and three colonels, including Maj. Gen. Jack Catton Jr., who is on active duty at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia. Catton was investigated by the Air Force last spring after he sent an e-mail from his work account urging Air Force Academy graduates to contribute to a Republican candidate for Congress.
