Some change to believe in

Not forgotten, just disappointed

Not a lot, but something. Here’s a policy change from the Bush Administration’s "manufactured reality" division that appears to be on the way out and good riddance:

Barack Obama has abandoned the US’s controversial plan to build a missile-defence system in Europe in one of the sharpest breaks yet with the policies of the Bush administration, according to reports from Washington today…

The decision will be framed by many on the right as "appeasement" (when don’t they pull out that cliche?), but a costly boondoggle is a costly boondoggle. Putting 10 silos in Poland and a big ass radar station in Czechoslovakia the Czech Republic will cost the U.S. taxpayer billions and accomplish nothing but a new political football for the east and west to squabble about — but which achieves nothing realistic.

So that may be one stupid, expensive, and irrational policy down. I hope Glenn Beck cries.

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 .
