A hat tip to Tbogg commenter Doug over at heyJennySlater (the only blog I know of named for a line from one of my all time favorite movies)for the German word "backpfeifengesicht", which translates to "a face that cries out for a fist in it."

Sweet, sweet schadenfreude
Karma's a bitch, ain't it your Lordship? Conrad Black has been convicted on three counts of mail fraud and one of obstruction of justice -- he's has appealed of course, but when the sentence is handed down in November Lord Black of Crossharbour is said to be looking a one to three years, though under the law he could get as many as 25 years. It couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Maybe we should all chip in and get him a present, you know, like a video , or something else he can really use:

Must read addendum!Dr. Dawg lays it all out in terms that even his Lordship would appreciate

Added bonus! The BBC reports that Lord Tubby could end up on the dole. How likely is it that Barbarella Amiel is already shopping for husband number five or at least a new sugar daddy? At her age, I guess that would be a new sugar great-granddaddy.
And if that isn't enough, Himself has been turfed out of the British Conservative Party and could lose his peerage.

Spitting right between their eyes
is what the Rude Pundit specializes in. His latest installment is fairly light on the rudeness, but heavy on the entirely justifiable outrage over the lying bags of dirt occupying the White House .

Meanwhile, on CNN just now I'm seeing a headline "Al-Quaida strongest since 9/11" so just what the weeping, jumping Jeebus on a on a pogo stick have the Republicans been doing for the last six years? I thought they got elected because they were going to be tough on terrorists, not just tough on anyone who questioned the actions of Bwana Dick Cheney. What ever happened to smoking them out? Personally I suspect Osama Bin Laden has by now shaved his beard and moved to Dallas to sell tract houses and take over the local chapter of Businessmen for Bush.

Supporting the troops...not
First they send them to a place they just shouldn't be on the basis of trumped up charges and outright lies. Then they don't provide enough body armor or armored vehicles. Then they screw over the returning wounded at Walter Reed. Now, Bush is screwing the veterans out of health care so he can cut taxes for Haliburton and Paris Hilton.

"I am Canadian"

Personally, I always thought pulling the sweater over the other guy's head was a cheap move eh, but this guy was clearly asking for it.
