There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

(no subject) @ 06:56 am


To start the work week, Monday funnies:

Day By Day goes a long way to set this joke up. I like it, anyway.

Cox & Forkum's topic: Worse.

Winger interrupts our regularly scheduled programming for a bulletin from CBS News. Almost as good as their breaking into CSI: NY to let us know that a dangerous terrorist had died a peaceful death...

Enjoy your day!

I wonder if those in the media who are rooting for civil war realize how transparent they are. An article in the St Louis paper had the headline "Civil War in Iraq", but the subject of the article was an interview with Rumsfeld and had nothing to do with civil war. The BBC is even worse.

I'm sure they've convinced themselves that "they're speaking truth to power" or whatever that idiotic expression is. It's about par for the course. I think they've convinced themselves that people who honestly want things to go well in Iraq, not because of the potential for bringing the price of oil down but because of the potential for instituting a real-live democracy there (one that is friendly to the Western world and a stabilizing force in a terribly backward and unfriendly part of the world) are some sort of deviants. "Peace at any cost" is awfully damned expensive, but they seem to be willing to pay the price simply because they hate George W. Bush. Understand, I'm not particularly fond of the president (I think he's done little to cut unnecessary government spending and has in fact done a lot of unnecessary spending himself, with the help of Congress) nor am I particularly fond of sending kids off to fight in a war that doesn't directly affect us (unless you consider that Iraq had suffered long enough under Saddam, who was a direct threat to the US, WMDs be damned), but, you know, this wouldn't have been necessary if the UN, the left's favorite hope for peace and unity through world government and gun control, did its job in the first place.
