I was going to post something terribly clever about Law and Order DA Fred Thompson advising Bush on matters of Supreme Court selection, but now that seems a little silly. That is most definitely NOT to say that the Supreme Court is not important in light of the GIANT FUCKING EXPLOSIONS that just went off in London, just that maybe it's more important for us to stop for a moment and think about how badly George Bush and Tony Blair are going to mess up the response to this.
It's a lot harder to convey horrified sarcasm on the internet, but I'll give it a try anyway. This War on Terror is going fucking gangbusters! We've got them on the run! Afghanistan and Iraq have been such huge successes-let's invade more countries!
I don't want to be vulgar, but Western nations would probably get bombed by "freedom hating" terrorists if we stopped sodomizing sovereign countries with our "freedom."
Speaking of freedom, read Christian Parenti's book "The Freedom," and Asne Seierstad's "101 Days" and "The Bookseller of Kabul." It's as good a time as any to read the work of more war correspondents.
