It is officially ok to call that meshugena shiksa a NAZI

My Bird's Flawless Impersonation of Ms. Coulter
(a real picture is too scary and copyrighted)

Ann Coulter says America would be better without all those Jews

First she alleged that Bill Clinton was gay, now she's attacking Jews and fails understand she is being an anti-Semite. Is she off her meds? Maybe Rush can lend her some of his?

urgent: Call Congress and demand that they not shirk their responsibilities. They should end this war, impeach the President and leave Ms. Coulter alone. She is free to be insane after all. Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and the rest of us can handle the condemnation all on our own.

War with Iran, not so fast...Dick...

Dick Cheney has run up against a few tough adversaries (who must hate America). Bob Gates (Sec. of State) and Mike McConnell (national director of intelligence). They are working to contain Cheney's office and stop its relentless drum beating.

Times Article: The man who stands between the US and the Next War

Back in the 1950s there were a bunch of neo-isolationist Republican Senators working against President Eisenhower's policies. Minority leader, Lyndon Johnson, got the Democrats to side with the President against the Congressional Republicans and in 2 years Johnson was Majority leader with neo-isolationism on the run. What if we try this again? What if the Democrats side with Gates & McConnell against the Cheney's insanity? Can we prevent the coming war with Iran?

I have suggested this to my guys in the House and Senate and Joe Biden's office (I figure he'd be into this kind of strategy).

GWOT - Can you fight a war against a tactic?

To have a war against terrorism is to fight a vague class of enemies never knowing if we are winning or when it will end. Terrorism, the use of violence against a population to create fear and forward a political agenda, is a tactic not an ideology or a specific group of people. A war on terror is like seeking a Hammerist to fix a leaky sink. Plumbers, carpenters and electricians all subscribe to Hammerism (they use hammers) but only one group is the right one for the job.

When we have a policy against the terrorists, which ones are we talking about? What impact can a policy have with a poorly defined problem and a vague goal? How do we know if it is working and how do we tell when our mission has been accomplished? This is not semantics it is a sign of confusion or duplicity on the part of our policy makers. Perhaps they are using the threat of violence to scare us into accepting their agenda. That sounds a little like terrorism to me.
