Just busy as all get-out — whatever that means.
Light blogging until (let’s be honest) I’m back to having no life.
PS That was a joke, OK?
Safire on Iraq

Well I found a funny ‘fisking’ of an MSN article on an old friends blog.

What happened to the posts that were older than 2-3 days?
Stephan, get over regular life. I have an insatiable appetite for free ice cream. What are you doing that’s so freakin important? Trust me, an outdoor bar is NOT that IMPORTANT!
Life? What’s a life?
I’ll get a life when someone can prove to me that it’s better than what I’ve got now!
Come on, man! We need analysis of the day’s news! Like…er…the media spinning its wheels in Iraq. The 9/11 commission shaming itself. John Kerry not being in the news…again…um.
Ok, forget it. New day, same drivel. Come back when you’re revitalized and there’s something worthwhile to talk about.
Sorry but this was just too good to pass up…
Mo Dowd is writing a book called BUSHWORLD (oh the puns…)
To be released in 2005 (nothing if not punctual)
Where we get witty, insightful, intelligent, and Pulitzer Prize winning banter like: “In Bushworld, it’s perfectly natural for the president and vice president to appear before the 9-11 commission like the Olsen twins.”
oh god if I ever stop laughing I might just have to stop commenting and revive my now-defunct blog where I can devote the time and effort into lampooning this for all it’s bound to be worth…

INDC Public Service Announcement: Coping With SBMS
“Keep my balls out of your mouth!” You may have noticed a certain malaise currently misting the blogosphere like noxious clouds of Brood-X cicada-urine. Some shake it off as a phase, hot weather lethargy or a common case of…
If you aren’t doing much blogging, do you mind if I tell your readers that on my blog I got the name and picture of the intern, Washingtonienne who worked for senator Dewine and had sex with 6 politicians for money.
had not heard of your blog before today, when atrios reposted this gem in response to Gore’s 02 speech to the commonwealth club in SF.
You say we need to focus on the Terror War, but ignore Iraq? Albert Jr., you know better than that. Saddam finances and supplies terror, and may well be providing it sanctuary now, as well. The Iraq War will be just a phase in the broader conflict — and a quicker, cleaner, easier effort than the others lying before us. Pick the low-hanging fruit early. Then again, you’ve never been a big fan of that, or you wouldn’t have lost your home state in the 2000 election.
We aren’t going after Jesse James, Mr. Gore. We’re going after Saddam Hussein. He is a self-declared enemy of our nation, in violation of every agreement he has signed with us, and of every UN resolution mandated against him. The proper Old West analogy would be High Noon, with the US in the Gary Cooper role.
You lost the election. Now leave the rest of the nation alone to win this new war.
My bad if you already have, but isn’t it time for you folks to stand up and loudly proclaim
WE COULDN’T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG IF WE TRIED!
YOU’RE RIGHT, WE’RE WRONG, THE PRESIDENT IS A FUCKING IDIOT!
Let’s see, Saddam had his nuke program and others on hold, waiting until the inspectors gave him the light frisk, then declared everything hunky-dory. Once they were gone he could resume his search for nukes etc.
This is a man who recklessly started two wars to steal other people’s oil. He has massacred hundreds of thousands of people. We now know he will never have nukes. That is a good thing.
The deeper purpose of the Iraq campaign is to start the reform of the dysfunctional Arab/Persian political culture into one featuring consensual government. This is intended to destroy the “root causes” of terrorism. I’m sorry if this is too sophisticated and deep a strategy for simplminded people like Kos, Atrios, and John Kerry to understand, but that’s not our fault.
The alternative to destroying the terrorists is a rising tide of terrorist violence reaching a crescendo with nuclear terrorist strikes. If you want that, bug out from Iraq. If not, keep fighting.
You still have the guts to call other political cultures dysfunctional?
The Marine’s tale: ‘We killed 30 civilians in six weeks. I felt we were committing genocide’
You know why General Taguba’s report didn’t find any “rotten apples” at the top of the military and political echelon?
From today’s Washington Post:
“Taguba never interviewed Miller or any officer above Karpinski’s rank for his report.”
If that isn’t a selective and biased search for evidence I don’t know what it is.
