Meet the new quagmire, same as the old quagmire

Condi says no to Iran, Syria, ISG:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice yesterday rejected a bipartisan panel's recommendation that the United States seek the help of Syria and Iran in Iraq, saying the "compensation" required by any deal might be too high. She argued that neither country should need incentives to foster stability in Iraq.

Another Milestone in Iraq Our Media Completely Ignores


25,000. Think about that for a minute. And remember: given the numbers estimated by actual scientists who are not sycophantic journalists or career concerned military people which suggest we've been lied to abuot the actual Iraqi body count, it's probable that the US casualty numbers have been lowballed as well.

World's Tallest Man to Pull Chertoff Out of Lieberman's Ass

Chertoff better not eat in any black-owned restaurants in NOLA. Really, the arrogance of these people is stunning at times. It wouldn't surprise me if some overworked, low-level FEMA employee just shot him, the next time he got out of a taxpayer funded hookermobile car.

"Be they terrorists or elected officials" indeed. I salute you, Lt. Watada. Read more about Army Goes After Truthout

I Need a British Girlfriend

I bitch about TV all the time, but it's not really the case that I hate it so much. Rather, I'm just pissed that I can't be a lazy slob and enjoy a passive moment of slacktivism, and at the same time be stimulated intellectually in the tiniest way. Thank Shiva for Netflix, which allows me to experience some truly severe envy of the British, or at least of those in the 90s (I have no idea if they still are making TV this good).

A Boy and His Dog


...The deal of the century, as it came to be known, took three years to complete. But when it was finally signed by Prince Sultan, the Saudi defence minister, on the Caribbean island of Bermuda in 1988 it provided British Aerospace with a stream of revenue worth around $2bn (£1.02bn) a year, with a current total that stands at more than $40bn.

Ahmet Ertegun

Ahmet Ertegun, founder of Atlantic Records and perhaps the most important figure in the acceptance of soul and R&B music by the mass audience, passed away today at age 83. He slipped and fell while attending a Rolling Stones concert in New York on October 29, the injuries eventually causing him to fall into a coma from which he never awoke.

I keep hearing about a "surge" of troops into Iraq (God knows why they're thinking of this, except either to evade accountability, or create or chaos, or rake in more billions, or all three--but that's another post).

But, I'm also hearing that all we've got is, like, 20,000 troops at the outside. WTF?

I mean, 10 million Russian military deaths on the Eastern Front in World War II, and these delusional nimrods are calling 20,000 deaths a fucking surge? What's wrong with these people? Read more about "Surge"

The kind of headline we like to see

House Win Adds Insult to Injury for DeLay:

- Former congressman Ciro Rodriguez's victory in a House runoff election Tuesday in Texas not only allowed Democrats to pick up their 30th seat of the 2006 elections but served as a final rebuke to one of the architects of the Republican House majority: Tom DeLay.

Nice rack!
