This guy, al-Jaafari, looks to be the new Iraqi Prime Minister. He looks like a legitimately popular figure, heading up a conservative Islamic party. Amazingly, he had to beat out Chalabi for the spot, the sleaziest of sleazballs, who had no business being anywhere but jail.

The trouble is, if al-Jaafari is not a convenient choice for Rummy & Co., he's done. I'll be impressed if he lives another three weeks.

Dr. Thompson, we'll ingest something extralegal for you.

Good column by Maureen today, although it's a shame she had to credit Howie the Hack Kurtz with anything. I don't even know what a Barberini Fawn is and I don't think I want to know.

I would be white-knuckling it through some Scotty Mc press steno session and hearing an occasional decent question. Then some jerk would chime in with a total gift of a question and even some of the press corps could be heard groaning. It was Gannon, although that's not his real name. He is another fake reporter hired to push propaganda for the White House.

Thru Buzzflash, also all the goods at Americablog. The guy is a disgrace who just resigned from his apparent position at Talon. He is connected to some male escort site - this is bizarre but mostly it is just one more thing that should start a riot in Washington. It won't.

Ossie Davis. I was lucky enough to be in the same room with the man and his wife, Ruby Dee, at Charlie Rangel's birthday party last summer.

He wrote and delivered the eulogy for Malcom X.

He lived in Harlem, my town, now, when he was about my age.

A great actor and a WWII veteran, who banged on the peace drum his whole life.

"Those who know, don't tell, and those who'll tell, don't know."

Democracy Now ran a very fitting tribute.

As do the members of the Cartel. As I have mentioned many times, the key to power for the neo-fascists is the dstrcution of the judicial branch. Hence, the media pimps stories like this, without any follow-up story, wherein the decision will get tossed as completely absurd:
A Colorado judge ordered two teen-age girls to pay about $900 for the distress a neighbor said they caused by giving her home-made cookies adorned with paper hearts.

The pair were ordered to pay $871.70 plus $39 in court costs after neighbor Wanita Renea Young, 49, filed a lawsuit complaining that the unsolicited cookies, left at her house after the girls knocked on her door, had triggered an anxiety attack that sent her to the hospital the next day. ...

... Young said she was frightened because the two had knocked on her door at about 10:30 p.m. and run off after leaving the cookies.

To do this right, one would have to go through the whole unbearable speech. This part, which I had posted below, should serve as a decent example:
To promote peace (achieve brutal submission) in the broader Middle East (Syria and Iran), we must confront regimes (kill innocents) that continue to harbor (fail to arbitrarily arrest) terrorists ( innocents) and pursue (fantasize about) weapons of mass murder (pop guns). Syria (unfriendly brown people) still allows its territory (scrap of ungovernable sand), and parts of Lebanon (a smaller scrap of sand), to be used (lived on) by terrorists ( innocents) who seek to destroy (eat, and pray for) every chance of peace in the region. You have passed (been bribed into accepting), and we are applying (pretending to honor the three branch system with), the Syrian Accountability Act (death warrant for brown people) -- and we expect the Syrian government to end all support for terror and open the door to freedom (submit completely to our will and learn to love Jeebus and Big Macs).

SOTUS tonight. Yeah. Maybe the Shrub could conjur up a few more irrelevant quotes from "ordinary citizens" in Iraq and the States and pretend that their sold-out, fatfuck view of things was shared by everyone.

Maybe he actually thinks we don't know where we are going next. Actually, he would be right but it is right in our faces:
To promote peace in the broader Middle East, we must confront regimes that continue to harbor terrorists and pursue weapons of mass murder. Syria still allows its territory, and parts of Lebanon, to be used by terrorists who seek to destroy every chance of peace in the region. You have passed, and we are applying, the Syrian Accountability Act -- and we expect the Syrian government to end all support for terror and open the door to freedom.

Today, Iran remains the world's primary state sponsor of terror -- pursuing nuclear weapons while depriving its people of the freedom they seek and deserve. We are working with European allies to make clear to the Iranian regime that it must give up its uranium enrichment program and any plutonium re-processing, and end its support for terror. And to the Iranian people, I say tonight: As you stand for your own liberty, America stands with you.
