I've been regularly visiting the blog www.crooksandliars.com mainly for fresh The Daily Show and The Colbert Report video clips that are regularly available for download.  But recently some of the articles posted there have got my attention:


"It has been a haunting undertone to the new year. At moments, the start of 2007 has sounded like the end of 2002 or the start of 2003. It's been as if you could just substitute one letter; an 'n' for a 'q'. Like all that President Bush once said before he took us to war in Iraq was being recycled as what he's been now saying about Iran."

In the above link with downloadable video clips, Keith Olbermann points out that Bush is now building up a case for war against Iran the exact same way he did for Iraq (with excellent video clip literally comparing Bush's 2002 and late 2006 / 2007 speeches concerning Iraq and Iran respectively).  This is in case this isn't already blindingly obvious to you by now, because hey, my parents still think Bush is the best thing since Jesus, just because he's a Christian, so who knows.

Incidentally, I stumbled across this on the Wikipedia main page's news box:  Private intelligence firm Stratfor reports that Ardeshir Hosseinpour, a scientist of the Iranian nuclear program, was killed by the Mossad, but Iran denies this. 

Reading up on that led me to this article:  Plans for strikes against the Iranian nuclear program.

At which point I pooped my pants and decided to get back to work.  But not before posting this:



During her appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, Condoleezza Rice was challenged by Senator Boxer for not having a personal stake in the war because she doesn't have any immediate family in the military. Seeing that bringing a child into Condi's life may finally make her realize the human cost of war, Jon Stewart decides to take one for the team and tries to serenade the distinguished Dr. Rice with some intellectual pickup lines. Hilarity ensues.


Downloadable video clip of pure Jon Stewart awesomeness.
