Concerning the news last week...

...I thought I'd reprise an oldie-but-goodie.

Irony Alert...

As mentioned in the comments here, the scene of Saddam's legal team headed to the courts of the Great Satan to prevent his execution absolutely drips in irony.

A lesson on...

...Moonbats. I've dealt with some of the lesser moonbats on that other Forum, and they can be equally oblivious to logic.

The Intellectual Argument for....

...what I've long said: We need to fight this war with the gloves off, or not at all. I have said, for years now, that we need to aim for Victory instead of Peace.

I wondered about this too....

I was thinking recently about the new report regarding Sandy Berger's theft at the National Archives. Specifically, I was wondering if Berger realized that he was stealing and destroying American history here, and if he did realize it, did it bother him at all? These documents did not belong to him. They are ours. He stole them from all of us.

Then, today, I find over at Powerline, a post from a reader-expert who spoke to exactly this point.
"...They were true historical documents capturing a snapshot in time in the Administration and the thoughts of those individuals involved with the events of the day.

Those documents belong to the People, not to any individual. Sandy Berger was destroying historical records and putting them into a 'memory hole.'"

Berger's reputation cannot possibly get further smeared, but unfortunately, there will be far too many who forget this level of depravity.

Layover photos....

This is one of the photos that I had no idea how it would turn out. In full attribution, I have no idea how to make a photo turn out the way I might like it, but I'm pleased with this one none-the-less.

Central Park. A purple tree.

Layover Photos...

For no other reason than I've got nothing else to say today (nor the time to say it), I'm beginning a semi-regular feature of this blog...favorite layover photos.

And here is one of my recent favorites...a combination Dunkin' Donuts/Sushi shop in Boston. I've always wondered what came first: The donuts or the Sushi?

Go Roman...

OK, not more than three hours after I write that I won't have much time to write than I find (as I was eating my soup at lunch) this gem.

Dennis Miller absolutely gets this...

h/t...John at Op-For.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Not much time to post here with lots of things to do around the house, busy at work, Christmas, etc.

Will try to put up something later, but I don't expect to have much time until after the holidays.

And in that vein, to my tens of readers, Merry Christmas.

An object lesson on tin-horn dictators...

...presented by Charles.

If only this were comedy.

Let's redeploy from Iraq...


And I thought ScrappleFace was a humor blog.

Oh, yeah. You know where the hattip goes.

Is the MSM just daft or willfully stupid?

I open up this morning and see this headline as their top news story...
WP: Combat troops out of Iraq?
The story begins talking about the ISG (see below) recommendations that combat troops in Iraq should be withdrawn by the end of 2008.

Seven paragraphs into the story, Bush is quoted as saying...
"This business about graceful exit just simply has no realism to it whatsoever," Bush said.

Further, it takes no time at all to find this story (from the NYT, no less)....

So, what is it? Daft or willfully stupid? Both?
