Quotes of the day, courtesy of Condolezza Rice
"Each individual all over the world has the God-given right to express themselves. I'm not just going to visit places where people agree with me. That would be really unfortunate."
It's too bad our president, or his handlers, or whoever it is that continues to surround him with supportors while chasing away protestors, does not agree with her.
"Yes, I know we have made tactical errors, thousands of them." (In answer to a question over whether lessons had been learned since the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003).
Both quotese are from a recent visit to England.

A shortlived funny - see it while it's still online!

From my friend Kat:
So, Chevy has this thing on their website where you can make your own commercial for the Chevy Tahoe. Here are some of the unexpected submissions:
#1
#2
#3
#4
You'd better watch 'em soon before the Chevy execs have them taken down... because they will!

Is Rummy going to get the boot?

Check this out (link found on Eschaton). Of course, Donald Rumsfeld has supposedly been in trouble with the Administration since, oh, October of 2003. And yet he's lasted this long...

In the news: Scientology

Check out Operation Clambake for all your CoS-related questions.

Rolling Stone magazine had an interesting article on Scientology recently. Check it out if you have a chance.

Get Tom Tomorrow on the Daily Show!

I just read this today. As Jon Stewart might say, "whaaaaaaaaaaaaah?!"

Tom Tomorrow does This Modern World, a great political satire comic (check out the archive here, newest comic here); he also has a good blog that I check regularly. He has a new book out, and those of you who watch the Daily Show know that Jon Stewart often interviews people who are on book tours. However, Comedy Central is not interested in having Tom Tomorrow on the show, which is odd, because before I read the above post I had been thinking that he would be a perfect guest!

So if you agree with me, please email Comedy Central and let them know, and maybe together we can change their minds.

Thanks!

FAIR: Remembering the Iraq War's Pollyanna pundits

Here's my favorite quote so far from this great webpage:
“I’m waiting to hear the words ‘I was wrong’ from some of the world’s most elite journalists, politicians and Hollywood types…. I just wonder, who’s going to be the first elitist to show the character to say: ‘Hey, America, guess what? I was wrong’? Maybe the White House will get an apology, first, from the New York Times’ Maureen Dowd. Now, Ms. Dowd mocked the morality of this war….

“Do you all remember Scott Ritter, you know, the former chief U.N. weapons inspector who played chief stooge for Saddam Hussein? Well, Mr. Ritter actually told a French radio network that — quote, “The United States is going to leave Baghdad with its tail between its legs, defeated.” Sorry, Scott. I think you’ve been chasing the wrong tail, again.

Maybe disgraced commentators and politicians alike, like Daschle, Jimmy Carter, Dennis Kucinich, and all those others, will step forward tonight and show the content of their character by simply admitting what we know already: that their wartime predictions were arrogant, they were misguided and they were dead wrong. Maybe, just maybe, these self-anointed critics will learn from their mistakes. But I doubt it. After all, we don’t call them ‘elitists’ for nothing.”
(MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, 4/10/03)
Yeah. Those misguided elitist critics of the Iraq war definitely need to apologize for their arrogance.

Thanks to Tom Tomorrow for the link.

Hooray for George Clooney
The fear of being criticized can be paralyzing. Just look at the way so many Democrats caved in the run up to the war. In 2003, a lot of us were saying, where is the link between Saddam and bin Laden? What does Iraq have to do with 9/11? We knew it was bullshit. Which is why it drives me crazy to hear all these Democrats saying, "We were misled." It makes me want to shout, "Fuck you, you weren't misled. You were afraid of being called unpatriotic."

Bottom line: it's not merely our right to question our government, it's our duty. Whatever the consequences. We can't demand freedom of speech then turn around and say, But please don't say bad things about us. You gotta be a grown up and take your hits.
From his blog, link thanks to Tom Tomorrow.

Funny for Monday
The setting on this shower ought more accurately to be labelled 'Jumped By Thugs', you could mount the thing on top of a truck and use it to crush riots.
Maybe it's because I woke up at 4am this morning and am by now a wee bit punchy, but that made me giggle aloud at my desk. It's from "Things my girlfriend and I have argued about," which is very funny and British and for which I must enthusiastically thank Kelly K.
