U.S. Funds Being Secretly Funneled To Violent Al Qaeda-Linked Groups

Seriously. WTF? This is BIG. Iran-Contra anyone? Can we please, please just remove this entire administration and start over? Pretty please?
New Yorker columnist Sy Hersh says the “single most explosive” element of his latest article involves an effort by the Bush administration to stem the growth of Shiite influence in the Middle East (specifically the Iranian government and Hezbollah in Lebanon) by funding violent Sunni groups.
Hersh says the U.S. has been “pumping money, a great deal of money, without congressional authority, without any congressional oversight” for covert operations in the Middle East where it wants to “stop the Shiite spread or the Shiite influence.” Hersh says these funds have ended up in the hands of “three Sunni jihadist groups” who are “connected to al Qaeda” but “want to take on Hezbollah.”
Hersh summed up his scoop in stark terms: “We are simply in a situation where this president is really taking his notion of executive privilege to the absolute limit here, running covert operations, using money that was not authorized by Congress, supporting groups indirectly that are involved with the same people that did 9/11.”

Whole Foods Market to buy rival Wild Oats

Whole Foods Market Inc. said on Wednesday it will buy smaller rival Wild Oats Markets Inc. for about $565 million to compete better with larger traditional grocers, which are increasingly encroaching into its organic and prepared foods niches.

Correspondent Wil S. Hylton lays out the case for impeaching the VP in the March issue of GQ. He's even crafted six articles of impeachment and substantiated each.
Over the past six years, as the country has spiraled into military misadventure, fiscal madness, and environmental meltdown, the vice president has not merely been wrong about the issues; he has been duplicitous, deceitful, and deliberately destructive to the American democracy. These things can no longer be denied by rational minds. Read the full article.

Four More Years

Not having an exit strategy never goes out of style. Bush and his boys would be seeing red if they spotted you in one of these shirts.

"Inside Iraq" chronicles daily life in a war zone through the words of Iraqi journalists in McClatchy's Baghdad Bureau as they risk so much each day to survive. These are unedited first hand accounts of their experiences. Their complete names have been withheld for security reasons.

For starters, you should read the post from Feb. 15. Truly horrifying.

Think of this the next time you hear Bush/Cheney/McCain/Lieberman spouting off about how the "liberal" media just isn't reporting all the good news from Iraq. These are the real stories of educated, middle class people like you and me.

1)Iranian separatist carried out two major bombings in Iran last week - one with major casualties; 2) These Iranian separatists or terrorists are operating from within Iraq; and 3) to quote AJ at AMERICAblog, "Iran is claiming that the explosives used in the attack against the Iranian military were manufactured in . . . wait for it . . . the U.S. This claim is, of course, unverifiable, but by the standards of our current administration, I guess our government just purposefully attacked Iran, or something."

Where Have All The Liars Gone

No One's Drinking Bush's Kool-Aid on Iran

An excellent editorial on why the public isn't falling for Bush's standard technique when it comes to Iran. Dreyfuss also nails Bush on his miserable showing at Wednesday's news conference - the one that sent my blood pressure into overdrive:

All by himself, the president is trying to turn Iran into a scary, al-Qaida-allied, nuke-wielding menace. But he's not fooling anyone. The potent "war president" of 2002-2003 is now an incoherent, mewling Wizard of Oz-like figure, and people are paying attention to the man behind the curtain.

Ode to My Sharpie

I want to thank you for being my best office tool
Daily you provide me with more than the tournament pool
From writing on boxes to covering up client names
You constantly flow with ease and never play games
With your two tips you can handle all given tasks
Like signing cards and notes and paper-mashay masks
For my revenge on an enemy, I give you first place
Let them pass out, then draw penises in their face
You have made me and my friends laugh a few times
When we use you at night to commit our petty crimes
Like the time Suzie Lou received 200 phone calls
When we wrote she sold kittens on bathroom stalls
But there is a better one yet, that’s not so domestic
Like posting a homophobe boss’ number at the majestic
That was a close call, because we almost got canned
But it did end overtime and talks about the promise land
Throughout our days we have enjoyed our fun
Sometimes your impact is more dangerous than a gun
But most of all I enjoy a usefulness that no one disagrees
Your ability to get me high while I work on RFP’s


More Mika

Pop uber-sensation Mika's - whom I mentioned a few weeks ago - debut album Life in Cartoon Motion entered the UK charts at #1 this week. His first single "Grace Kelly" has been at #1 for four weeks. The buzz surrounding this hot new artist is huge and his record company - the same record company that rejected him a few years back - is pulling out all the stops for an upcoming US release. If you don't already have it, they're offering up a free download of "Grace Kelly" via Arjanwrites. WARNING: It's infectiously fun.

Apple to open a store in Woodland Hills Mall...

The Idiot in Chief

OK, so King George's little "news conference" has given me a migraine. George Bush and his cabal are dangerously out of control and they are about to get us into an even bigger mess than we're already in. So, here's my rant:

GWB is bound and determined to get us into a war with Iran, and anyone who believes otherwise just isn't paying attention or is in deep denial. At this point, if the Administration says one thing, you can bet the opposite is true. Worst part is they are using the same tried and true combination of deception, misinformation and distorted intelligence that got us into a quagmire in Iraq to fabricate a case for war with Iran. For the life of me, I don't know why the Press Corps even bothers to show up for a "news conference" unless it's for comic relief.

Here's just one example of what the great decider had to say about allegations that Iran is providing the Iraqi Shia opposition with weapons:

"Here's my point, either they knew or didn't know. What matters is, is that they're there. What's worse, that the government knew, or that the government didn't know?"

Sir, you haven't a fucking clue, much less a point. All signals point to some sort of US military action against Iran in the near future (with what army, I'm not sure). If you are going to bomb Iran into the Stone Age, it matters a great deal whether or not the Iranian government "knows" these weapons are being funneled into Iraq.

Furthemore, why are we suddenly rattling sabers over this new, grave threat to our troops when weapons of Iranian origin have been noted in Iraq for over two years. For that matter, what about the Chinese, Russian, and yes, American-made weapons that have been used against our troops from the beginning of this debacle? Let's just invade everyone!

There really needs to be a nationwide cry for this man's resignation. It is long, long overdue.

This Week in Crazy

When most of us chose to spend our Sunday recovering from the previous night’s bender, others were perfecting the art of Crazy. An area Sapulpa resident decided to skip church this past dreary Sunday and make a trip to Priscilla's. I guess he must not have found his perfect selection of midget porn or “Hot and Horny Holy Rollers” video on the counter. In his fit of bipolar rage, he ransacked the adult novelty store and proceeded to slug a female police officer, but alas, with no success. Angered by his failures he sped off in his Ford Ranger to take on the highway with some flat tires, only to run into more problems.
Once confronted by the majority of the Sapulpa Police Department and some Highway Patrol cars, a standoff ensued. What should have been an easy arrest turned into a thirty-minute standoff because the suspect was believed to be holding a gun. The weapon turned out to be a twelve-inch piece of plastic. Okay, stop right there and think. A man ransacks an adult novelty store, than holds up a twelve-inch piece of plastic that cops thing is a gun. Basically, the man presented a twelve inch black dildo. There is no denying this is a weapon, but fortunate for police I doubt it was loaded.
The next serious of events is what earns this man a blog posting for “This Week in Crazy”. According to the KOTV 6 website, "He called it a scepter from God, that's why he was waving it around at us, he was blessing our officers," stated Sapulpa Police Captain Mike Reed.
Honestly, I can kind of identify with the guy that a penis is a “Scepter from God”, but I’m not sure dildos are.
Thank you Crazy Bipolar Sapulpa Dude for the entertainment and blessing the beloved Sapulpa Police department with your twelve-inch dildo (Scepter from God). May God bless your soul and Ron Jeremy bless all your penises.

Coming to Arnie's?

A new device will deliver a recorded message to bar and restaurant patrons via talking urinal cakes, which are placed above the drain in urinals to disinfect and deodorize them. The state has ordered 500 of the marketing tools to target men who might be making one last pit stop before getting behind the wheel.
"Hey there, big guy. Having a few drinks? Listen up. Think that you’ve had a few too many? It’s time to call a cab or ask a sober friend for a ride home. It is safer and a hell of a lot cheaper than a DWI. Make the smart choice tonight. Don’t drink and drive." [Raw Story]

Dan Savage Nails Mary Cheney

UPDATE: John Stewart weighs in as only The Daily Show can. Video at Crooks and Liars.

Earlier this week, First Lesbian, Mary Cheney, who is due to spew forth her demon spawn in a few short months, addressed the criticism she has received from America's bat-shit crazy religious extremists.

“When Heather and I decided to have a baby, I knew it wasn’t going to be the most popular decision,” Ms. Cheney said, referring to her partner of 15 years, Heather Poe. She then gestured to her middle — any bulge disguised by a boxy jacket — and asserted: “This is a baby. This is a blessing from God. It is not a political statement. It is not a prop to be used in a debate, on either side of a political issue. It is my child.”
You almost - ALMOST - want to sympathise with her, but Dan Savage is having none of it. I have to agree wholeheartedly. She and her party gave the likes of James Dobson a place at the table and made their hate mongering part of the political discourse. You can't just take that away when it becomes inconvenient to your personal life. It's been inconvenient for the rest of us for quite some time.

Nice try, Mary. Yes, it’s a baby, not a prop. My kid isn’t a prop either, but that never stopped right-wingers from attacking me and my boyfriend over our decision to become parents. The fitness of same-sex couples to parent is very much part of the political debate thanks to the GOP and the Christian bigots that make up its lunatic “base.” You’re a Republican, Mary, you worked on both of your father’s campaigns, and you kept your mouth clamped shut while Karl Rove and George Bush ran around the country attacking gay people, gay parents, and our children in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006. It’s a little late to declare the private choices of gays and lesbians unfit for public debate, Mary.
You've got to read the
rest. He doesn't pull any punches. [AMERICAblog]

Bush Math

Another day. Another pack of lies.

21,000 = 48,000. $5.6 billion = $27 billion. This from the party that accused Al Gore of using "fuzzy math".
President Bush and his new military chiefs have been saying for nearly a month that they would "surge" an additional 21,500 troops to Iraq, in a last, grand push to quell the violence in Baghdad and
in Anbar Province. But a
new study by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office says the real troop increase could be as high as 48,000 -- more than double the number the President initially said....

According to the study, the costs for the "surge" would also be dramatically different than the President has said. The White House estimated a troop escalation would require about
$5.6 billion in additional funding, the CBO now believes "that costs would range from $9 billion to $13 billion for a four-month deployment and from $20 billion to $27 billion for a 12-month deployment, depending upon the total number of troops deployed." There's a more detailed analysis of the numbers on pages 3 and 4 of the study, which was sent to House Budget Chairman John Spratt today.[DefenseTech]

Mooninite Shuts Down Boston

Parts of Boston, including highways, the Charles River and other waterways, were shut down today by what appears to be an elaborate hoax. As many as ten suspicious packages were planted in the metropolitan area. Some were reported to contain loose wires, while another was said to hold what looked like an explosive without the explosives and at least one package contained what appeared to be a Lite Brite emblazoned with an image of Mooninite.
"Aqua Teen Hunger Force has shut down a city," Fox News anchor Shepard
Smith told viewers, referring to the popular Adult Swim cartoon.
[The Raw Story]
UPDATE: This wasn't even a hoax - it was guerilla marketing for Adult Swim, and similar Lite Brite ads have been in place in 9 other cities for weeks. Boston freaked out and over reacted. Now they're pressing charges against the artists and are threatening to sue Ted Turner. Yeah, lotsa luck with that. [CNN]


Gaysted: Heterosexual people getting so wasted, they slip into seemingly gay acts. The loose definition: "It is when you are soooo drunk (wasted) and dudes start dancing with you and you just sort of go along with it and then they start putting their arms around you and you just kind of keep rolling with it because you're drunk and you sort of think the dude is being your dancefloor bro, but then when you sober up you realize that the situash is sort of weird. when this happens, you tell your friends, 'dude, i got so gaysted last night.'"

Yeah, that's what I'd say too...
