More War

Except, of course, for those who regard the enormity of the Administration’s perfidy as worse than anything that springs from foreign soil. I heard again on the radio today a series of talk-radio callers who believed that Bush could be as bad as Hitler, and they all pointed to his unnerving combination of religious faith and willingness to use military power. It makes me laugh, really - one of my favorite clips I saved from the TiVo is some tall scary Iraqi guy in a uniform, replete with meaningless medals, insisting that God is on their side - and he’s waving an automatic rifle at the assembled journalists. Has the President ever done this?

Well, not literally, but metaphorically, he’s -

Whatever. I remember what Robin Williams, the intermittently amusing hairy-backed hyperbabbler, said last week about Bush: “He's like 'We have to get rid of dictators,' but he's pretty much one himself.”

If someone invaded America tomorrow, how many big public posters would they have to tear down? How many airports and hospitals and highways would they have to rename?

How many statues would they have to topple?

From here.


When Sneaks mentioned that he'd seen photos of me, other people seemed confused. At which point I guessed that despite the link being right there on my userinfo page, most of you have failed to find my website.

It's here. The embarassing photos should be fairly obvious.

4th Potter film may also be fifth

The BBC is reporting that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is so big that it may end up being two films rather than one.

Seeing as the soon-to-be-released Order of the Phoenix is apparently even larger, this points towards 10 films in total if the pattern continues...
