David Vandervelde - Jacket Promo Video

I like this song quite a bit. No matter how much David has a Marc Bolan/T. Rex fixation:)

Iraq: The Hidden Story Documentary

John over at Crooks & Liars has this up on his site and mentions how everyone should see this British documentary because this ongoing disaster is being done in our name.

He is absolutely right.

For those of us who who were against this illegal invasion in the first place and saw something like this being the end result, it is even worse, because this is the nightmare we saw coming.

Proof Of Conservative Insanity Video

Apparently this is what passes for "humor" for them.

Nothing like a laugh track pushed up high in the sound mix to get them funny bones going.

I don't know if I could take anymore of this h-i-l-a-r-i-t-y in one sitting.

What's So Hard To Believe?

"Matt Lund was visiting his wife, Barbara, manager of the Secret Garden children's clothing store, when he heard the first shots. The couple and three others hid in a storage room for about 40 minutes, isolated but still able to hear the violence.

"We heard them say, 'Police! Drop your weapon!' Then we heard shotgun fire. Then there was a barrage of gunfire," said Lund, 44. "It was hard to believe."

"A business meeting turned deadly when a gunman apparently angry over money killed three men and critically injured a fourth before exchanging gunfire with police and then killing himself, police said."

"A suicide truck bomber blew himself up near a college and a ration office in a mainly Shiite area of the capital Tuesday, killing at least 15 people, officials said, a day after car bombs devastated a Baghdad marketplace. Tuesday's attack, which also wounded 27 people, was the latest in a series of bombings that came despite a U.S.-Iraqi security crackdown aimed at stopping the sectarian violence that has killed hundreds since the start of the year."

"Maceo Snipes served in the Pacific during World War II and returned home to make history: He became the first black person to vote in Taylor County.

But a day after casting his ballot, he was mortally wounded.

Relatives say the 37-year-old was shot in the back by four white men in 1946 and collapsed in the doorway of his farm house about 90 miles south of Atlanta. He died two days later."

"A woman pleaded guilty Monday to attempted homicide, assault and kidnapping for trying to cut a fetus from her neighbor's womb. Peggy Jo Conner, 39, was accused of plotting to steal Valerie Oskin's baby and pass it off as her own. Both Oskin and the baby survived after a boy on an all-terrain vehicle spotted the two women in a clearing."

I am sorry, what was so hard to believe again?

Jonah Goldberg - Just Another Neocon, Who Absolutely & Completely Got It Wrong Before & Always Will

"Goldberg told E&P yesterday he offered the 2005 wager "in a foolish fit of pique with Cole. ... Cole refused to take the bet. ... [Now] it seems that his fans want it both ways. They want to extol Cole as a prince for not accepting the bet, but they want me to be held accountable to it even though he never agreed to it."

The columnist added: "I will undoubtedly give more money to the USO and to similar charities in the future, as I have done in the past. ... Intellectual honesty requires that I admit that Cole would have won had he taken the bet. I have done that. ... When I give to charity ... I will do it privately which is at it should be."

Goldberg also said yesterday: "I've written that the Iraq War was a mistake. ... I join a long list of people whose expectations about the war and its handling turned out to be wrong in whole or in part. ... For the record, I still support staying there, because even if it was a mistake to go in when and how we did, that doesn't mean a precipitous withdrawal will make things better."

Read more about Goldberg's insanity here.

Naturally, Jonah has no idea what we would like him to be accountable for. In his mind it is the money, but then, that is not hard to understand from a conservative.

What I don't understand is why Jonah isn't over there helping "make things better" himself. He appears to be of the age to join the Army or Marines. They need all the help they can get.

Josh Marshall - "It's Poor Form" To Point Out Falsehoods

Bob Somerby has a field day with Josh Marshall and for good reason:

"MARSHALL (2/5/07): Many consider it poor form to point out these small-ante falsehoods. But this is how the Obama-Madrassa story got jazzed all over the place."

As Somerby correctly points out this stuff has been going on for quite a while and most people should be aware of it, unless you have just been living under a rock, or in a state of denial.

One of my favorites of the last few years was the Bush administration's claim that the Clinton White House left the place in shambles when they took over. Of course, the "swift boat" incident with Kerry was a particular piece of falsehood theater (coming soon to a PBS station near you!) that helped turn a guy who volunteered to go to Vietnam, and won medals for heroism, into some kind of lying weasel who made it all up and helped re-elect a man who barely functions as an adult.

It should be obvious to all by now what has happened to Democrats in the last decade or so by the so called "liberal" press and punditry, just look at what they did to Al Gore. But, perhaps, the lessons haven't sunk in enough.

Driving The Streets Of Baghdad

This should be shown on tv for days on end so that the 30% or so who still support our illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq finally get it.

And no, I am not blaming the troops. No, I am blaming the lying assholes who scared the shit out of this country after 9/11 with their propaganda and lies.

What has happened is exactly what was predicted to happen by those who opposed this disaster that should never have occurred in the first place.
