So now that what will be the final resolution has been passed, and with a US victory in securing freedom to act regardless of what France and the rest of the SC desires, the spin is starting to come fast and furious. For instance, there’s this piece in the New York Times by Elaine Sciolino, […]

There seems to be a lot of disorder going on in Iraq these days about what the official line is supposed to be concerning the new UN resolution. Just yesterday, Iraq’s UN Ambassador said that the resolution represented the US “imposing its will on the rest of the world.” Today Iraq’s Foreign Minister says that […]

CZ is having it’s now-annual stripper party tonight. Mostly the same deal as it was last year… amateur strippers, maybe a pro to get things going, lots of people yelling “take it off!” and sometimes even “put it back on!” You’d be amazed how alcohol creates a sense of inhibition in people who shouldn’t be […]

Arianna Huffington writes on AlterNet a clueless missive to the Democratic party, in which she argues that the Democrats weren’t energetic enough and didn’t stick to the right issues, on what she calls “Black Wednesday.” At least she isn’t being grandiose about it.

Saw a newscast today of Terry McAuliffe, who was trying to hide the fact that his tail is stuck so far between his legs that it was tickling his chin, during which he said in effect: it’s now time for President Bush to put up or shut up. IE, no more “excuses” or “whining” about […]
