A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

The War Rages On... 

The war on the 'war on Christmas' that is. Last night while channel surfing, I happened upon Jabba Falwell's Liberty University money machine promo. He's asking for 1 million people to sign some petition, no doubt with some request for money to go along with it, to force everyone to say "Merry Chistmas" instead of the generic, cultually sensitive "Happy Holidays." Anyway, last year's 'made up' War on Christmas is being brought to us again by Jabba who's employing this common device to rile people up. Namely, that they, or their beliefs, or their well-being, or whatever is somehow under some perceived threat. This is how you get people motivated and to get them to send you money. It's a shame that this non-existent 'war on Christmas' will be used to further divide our society and help spoil what should be a joyus celebration, a coming together if you will. But they benefit from fabricating these 'threats' just as those in power benefit from keeping people in fear.
