Israel to Tutu: Fuck Off

Color me not surprised. Off the top of my head, I can think of plenty of things Israel has done to make itself less and less defensible; shooting photographers, bombing civilian homes, locking up whistleblowers. So I suppose denying a visa to one nigger with some silly "peace" prize is par for the course:

Reuters CEO on Blogs

He's got a blog, but I can't seem to leave any comments. It's not a bad speech, but a couple of points indicate to me that he still doesn't quite grok the nature of political and news blogging.

What does the future look like in a world in which the consumer has taken over the printing press, the dark room, the television studio? What does the result of a mash-up of professional and “amateur” actually look like?

Saudi ambassador leaves DC abruptly to spend more time with his family

[UPDATE Kossack RenaRF points out that the last time Turki resigned unexpectedly was on... September 4, 2001. Eesh. I guess this explains why Bush is postponing his big strategery speech 'til January. Tinfoil, anyone?] Read more about Saudi ambassador leaves DC abruptly to spend more time with his family

"Je Suis la Société!"

Thread: 

IIRC, the current CEO pay rate is ~500x that of their average worker. Now, my question to shareholders is, while you may be fine with that, don't you think it's time to find some CEOs who don't believe that they should also have droite de seigneurie over your money?

In video, Pentagon Christianists say they'd rather study the Bible than do their jobs

I made a rough transcript of the amazing propaganda video from [cough] Christian Embassy. (You can see the whole thing at C&L.) Here is just one of the many juicy quotes: Read more about In video, Pentagon Christianists say they'd rather study the Bible than do their jobs

Aux duck pits, citoyens!

Tags: 

Back in the day, we used to say "Duck Pit" all the time as a neener neener-equivalent, until it was pointed out that the term wasn't Civil, so as the polite people we once were, we stopped immediately. Read more about Aux duck pits, citoyens!

Sweet jeebus, are all the megachurch pastors gay, or just some of them?

Personally, I don't give two shits. As Mrs. Patrick Campbell, the actress, once said:

Does it really matter what these affectionate people do—so long as they don’t do it in the streets and frighten the horses!

But the Christianists, having disguised their own warped sociological and psychological reasons as theology, care deeply. And so Ted Haggard, erm, went down. Read more about Sweet jeebus, are all the megachurch pastors gay, or just some of them?

Drowning Accountability in the Bathtub First

Thread: 

You have to go over to Tennessee Guerilla Women, which it seems is not a standard web page according to the omnipotent Google, to find Paul Krugman's good post today about our Outsourcer in Chief. I've thrown in some links that the good Dr. Krugman omitted. Shown is only the part germane to my soapbox, but do read it all. Read more about Drowning Accountability in the Bathtub First

Go Dennis!

Dennis throws his hat in the ring:

CLEVELAND - Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2004, said Monday he is planning to run again because his party isn't pushing hard enough to end the war in Iraq.

Some things I don't plan to "get over" anytime soon

Oh, call me a "process liberal," but here are just a few Republican outrages I will neither forget nor forgive:

1. 1998 - Republicans impeach President Bill Clinton over a blowjob.

2. 2000 - Republicans steal the Presidential election, with the help of Jeb Bush (Florida felon's list) and Antonin Scalia (Bush v. Gore)

3. 2002 - Republicans use the AUMF (Authorization to Use Military Force) as a political tool to win the mid-terms Read more about Some things I don't plan to "get over" anytime soon
