It is expedient that some Christians die...


So now Israel's bombing the Christians. WaPo:

AL FITAR, Lebanon, Aug. 4 -- Israeli warplanes broadened their air campaign in Lebanon on Friday, blasting four highway bridges in the Christian heartland north of Beirut and killing about 30 farmworkers with a missile strike in the Bekaa Valley that Israeli officials said targeted a suspected weapons depot.

Goodnight, moon

Gee, I guess I better lock in my fuel prices for the winter real soon, before Israel heaves a nuke or two at Iran and brings on the End Times.

Probably that won't happen until October, though. Bush wouldn't want to peak too early. Read below the fold...

So hard for Republicans to tell them apart

Missed this one from WaPo:

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), at the White House this spring for a meeting with other senators to discuss immigration with President Bush, was surprised when Bush approached him as the meeting broke up and observed: "Senator Martinez, you've been very quiet."

"That's Martinez," Menendez said, pointing to Mel Martinez -- Florida's junior senator and Bush's former secretary of housing and urban development.

Well, color me "immature," Dan Gerstein. You putz!

Former Ho Lieberman employee Dan Gerstein complains that bloggers aren't Civil or Dignified. In fact, some are positively Ungracious:

Mr. Gerstein complained that for all the reasoned arguments by some bloggers, too many resort to crude humor and angry diatribes that “don’t pass the maturity test.”

Fuck. More pearl-clutching. You want "crude"? Read below the fold...

"Take my zucchini--please!"

At the risk of causing CD to clutch her pearls and sink to the nearest fainting couch:


I really ought to introduce a ritual honoring Lord Kanamara-sama in His vegetable form. Perhaps a float in the Memorial Day parade.

But, for now, this modest shrine, with its humble offering, must suffice.

Why do Republicans have disgusting eating habits?

Remember when Leadfoot fired the White House chef? Sure, this was in the heyday of Freedom Fries and Freedom Toast, so avoiding French inventions like béchamel and and beurre blanc was de rigueur, but here's the real reason:
