We’ve replaced this Repressive Regime with Massive Death, Great Expense, and perpetual Civil War, USA! USA!

I guess the Fred Hiatts of the world will always have their fantasies.

Watch Fred jump on a portion of this sentence like the NRA and the last clause of the Second Amendment:

The number of Iraqi civilians killed in violence in Iraq this year fell to its lowest level since the 2003 U.S.-led invasion…

The operative word, of course, is “since”, but more importantly to the all-knowing beltway, the second part of the full sentence will be left unacknowledged:

…but the decline is slowing as low-level conflict takes root, a study showed on Thursday.

Let’s just shorten this to what it is. The bloodbath we enabled led to the ethnic cleansing we sponsored and we leave (sort of) a damaged people to their perpetual resentments — and a LOT of weapons. Oh we got rid of that asshole we helped make, for the prettied-up rubble. And it only injured or killed somewhere around a million and cost a few trillion bucks.

So really how dare we castigate Bill Kristol’s nearly decade-long victory lap. We’re clearly the crazy ones.

Why, those were a tribute from an admirer of mine.

On Starving In Prison, Or, Who Gets Pardons In Florida?



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 .
