Fred Hiatt – As Played by Steve Carrell

Fred Hiatt:

July 8: Good, Obama is willing to be flexible with his Iraq Plan, the Iraqis don’t want it.

July 16: Obama’s Iraq Plan is dangerously rigid and the Iraqis don’t want it.

July 23: Obama’s Iraq plan is dangerously flexible and the Iraqis’ agreement with him is proof they don’t want it.

And for the final dose of why Fred Hiatt is a war mongering dupe, today’s kicker:

While the United States has an interest in preventing the resurgence of the Afghan Taliban, the country’s strategic importance pales beside that of Iraq, which lies at the geopolitical center of the Middle East and contains some of the world’s largest oil reserves.

Now we’re down to the ol’ imperial brass tacks of it you two-bit neo-con toady. Who cares about "terrorists" it’s all about the oil.

Q Of The Day: In Uniformed Employment, Should Government Enforce Societal Clothing Norms?



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
