Pat Bucanan, Nazi-lover

Shorter Pat Bucanan "World War Two wasn't worth it. We should have let the Nazis have Europe instead of letting Stalin have part of it, because facism is better than communism. George agrees with me."

What can we expect from someone who wrote speeches for Nixon. How the hell did Hunter Thompson ever drink with this facist yahoo without taking a Wild Turkey bottle to his pointed head? It just goes to show that the Good Doctor was a man of fine manners and considerable restrait for which he is very rarely credited.

From the profane to the sacred

Yes the woodshed goes from one extreme to the other. Keep in mind that this piece on the impending theocracy in the USA was written, not by some rabid atheist, but by a Baptist minister of 40 years experience. And check out the source of the tip in Mr. Neiwert's excellent as always blog Orcinus (see blogroll)

It was only a matter of time

"We know for a fact that there are weapons there."
Ari Fleisher, Jan 9, 2003

"The Iraqi regime . . . possesses and produces chemical and biological weapons. It is seeking nuclear weapons. We know that the regime has produced thousands of tons of chemical agents, including mustard gas, sarin nerve gas, VX nerve gas."
George W. Bush, Oct. 7, 2002

"Saddam Hussein was dangerous, and I'm not just going to leave him in power and trust a madman. "He's a dangerous man. He had the ability to make weapons at the very minimum."
-George W. Bush, Feb, 2004

WMD found!

Don't read this link Mom!

...and if you do, don't complain that I didn't warn you. I really, really dislike Ann Coulter and the anything anyone does to mock her is okay by me, but this? Well, lets just say it is funny as hell, but definitely
Not For the Squeamish

Wanker of the week

In honor of this week's confirmation vote, the Woodshed names
John Bolton as our king bull-goose-looney Wanker of the Week.

“It is a big mistake for us to grant any validity to international law even when it may seem in our short-term interest to do so—because, over the long term, the goal of those who think that international law really means anything are those who want to constrict the United States.”

Yeah, right. Try substituting "criminal" for "international" and "Mafia" for "United States" and you can see what is wrong with this.

Worth a look
I've never been a big fan of Arianna Huffington, the socialite conservative libertarian-turned-liberal, but having said that, she deserves some credit for the the egotistically named Huffington Post which has just come on-line with contributions from Larry David, Walter Cronkite, John Cusak, Harry Shearer, David Mamet and David Frum. Admittedly, I'd like to see David 'I coined the term Axis of Evil' Frum nibbled to death by gerbils, but I suppose they need a house conservative. It seems a bit heavy on "Hollywood Libruls" but, if nothing else, at least that means some decent entertaining writing. Nice to see John Cusak writing about HST and Cronkite writing about anything. Hopefully they can maintain this high level of contribution.

Supporting the troops

Nice to see the business community is rallying behind those brave leathernecks by supplying them with only the very best gear

And people wonder why he's called "Bobo"
According to Bobo Abe Lincoln would have all right with letting God and James Dobson determine policy. I would refute this with carefully reasoned, logical arguements and carefully referenced evidence, but I just can't be bothered since when Bobo talks such obvious crapola, there is always someone else out there it bothers more than me who does so.

Lets see....what else is out there that is blogworthy?
Well at the Talent Show we have a breakdown of the Scopes Monkey Trial reenactment taking place in Kansas, which is now vying with Florida for "most embarrassingly backward U.S. State"

General Jesus has his usual letter to Bobo, and this week's is a doozy, unless you grew up on a Georgia Farm.
