Campaign war slogan for 2006

Inspired by Monk’s eloquent takedown of the Bush non-speech this morning, I have a proposal for the campaign war room slogan for anyone running against these fucks in 2006: “It’s the stupid, stupid.” Please pass it on.

What I have learned in three years…

Three years of nearly constant blogging- who knew I could be such a gasbag? It’s been a genuine pleasure 99% of the time. The worst days were when I was besieged by trolls at the very beginning of the Iraq War, and some old, good friends galloped to the rescue and passed out the smackdowns […]

Eye rolling means the same thing in any language

Fixer is back from Froglandia. Interestingly, he had the same experience I did last time I traveled in Europe- While I’m in Europe, I try to avoid Americans at all costs. It isn’t hard. They’re usually the loudest, most obnoxious and stand out among tourists of many a stripe. I’m sure the natives look at […]

BTW- it’s kinda my blog birthday tomorrow

Tomorrow will mark the 3rd anniversary of my first blog post. Not surprisingly, it was about my dog. Thanks for coming around here, you guys. It’s been a real pleasure.

Bob throws cold water on the froth

and with good reason, I must admit… Bob Harris witnesses a somewhat spurious debate in the wake of the “Murtha Moment,” and brings some missing perspective to the discussion- …opposition to the war in this country only counts for anything when it comes from people who have already been vocal supporters of an irrational war […]

Wilkerson won’t go away

Lawrence Wilkerson clearly has decided that he doesn’t care whether or not he’s on the Administration’s Christmas card list- In an Associated Press interview, former Powell chief of staff Lawrence Wilkerson also said President Bush was “too aloof, too distant from the details” of postwar planning. Underlings exploited Bush’s detachment and made poor decisions, Wilkerson […]

You’ve heard it said a thousand times

But I must say, honestly, I hate to see a grown man cry. On the other hand, before you get too caught up in Duke Cunningham’s (R-Nowhere, now) tearful apology on the courthouse steps, let me remind you of some of his greatest hits. From the Pajamas Media Hostage, David Corn: During the House debate […]

they hate us for our freedom

Well, that and for randomly shooting at them for kicks.’ A “trophy” video appearing to show security guards in Baghdad randomly shooting Iraqi civilians has sparked two investigations after it was posted on the internet… Video here. I don’t know how much more Democracy the people of Iraq can take. hat tip, eponymous.

Oh, yay us…

Now it’s Anti-American to ask that the President not plan to kill journalists with whom he doesn’t agree. The press reaction has, of course, been one of outrage, not only on the predictably anti-American Left, but also on the supposedly Atlanticist Right. Yesterday, for example, a Tory member of Parliament and the editor of the […]

Here it comes… I think

A tory Member of Parliament, which means he’s probably a bastard the other 364 days of the year, has offered to go to jail if that’s what it takes to get the Al Jazeera memo into the public eye. If someone passes me the document within the next few days I will be very happy […]
