Ask her who the enemy is

She's dressing her kid up like a suicide bomber. This isn't art. She's telling you who her enemy is. It's us. U.S.

Eeek! Don't make them mad!

Here's a story for the New York liberals who are terrified to fight terrorism because it will only make terrorists mad. Then, shudder, the bad guys will really come after us and, like, maybe it will disrupt reservations at Elaines. Who KNOWS what the consequences would be...!

From the WSJ June 18:

In 2005 US forces landed on the sweltering, poverty-stricken island of Jolo to help the Philippine army root out an al Qaeda offshoot. Many feared that the return of American soldiers for the first time since WWII would only escalate the conflict.

Instead, the Abu Sayyaf group has been weakened the threat of terrorism is receding in the Muslim-dominated south of the country, long a breeding ground for some of the world's most notorious terrorists.

Dang, you mean war works?

Yes. Every time it is tried.

Big Hole

I asked Mark Wayne: Do you kind of feel guilty that there is a drought and we are digging a big ass hole to put water into?

Mark Wayne said: Hell no.

And he pointed out that in the background you can see a couple acres of our carbon offsets. He claims that he is going to start holding a chain saw to the trees: Buy a carbon offset or the tree gets it.

Put that in your ebay and smoke it.

Sopranos ending

This ridiculous ending (nothing) just shows how much contempt the producers of the Sopranos have for the audience.

Mark Wayne and I thought of a dozen cool scenarios for the ending. But one thing we didn't think of is that the show would snuff itself out like a wet sparkler.

Is this genius as SFGate seems to think? After all, NO ONE suspected it! So, good or bad, if you can do something no one suspects, then the elites think you are fabulous. The problem is that surprise is the only thing this ending had going for it. Surprise in place of a storyline.

In a way it is emblematic of how empty of story the storytellers really are in Hollywood today. Look at all the remakes. They are all so consumed with and terrified of political correctness and their own view of the world that they are actually afraid to tell a freaking story. Welcome to 2007. The Sopranos is a perfect reflection of the emptiness of the artists.

Bush administration 'cowardice and incompetence.'

From the Wall Street Journal, June 6, opinion page:

"As for President Bush, it was the cowardice and incompetence of his Administration that led Mr. Libby to this pass. Feeling 'Terrible' (about Libby's conviction and sentence to 2.5 years in prison) won't keep his man out of prison."

George W. Bush is either a coward himself or he will free Libby.

And, let's just remember, Libby was convicted of working for Dick Cheney and having an uncool nickname.
