Will the "Bent One" be in line for a Pulitzer prize?

Laura Ling and Euna Lee, journalists working for former Vice President Al Gore's Current TV, were arrested near China's border with North Korea on March 17. The two were quickly convicted of illegal entry and "hostile acts" and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor.
Bill Clinton's surprise visit to North Korea wasn't likely planned without the White House, Clinton's former NATO ambassador told The Hill on Tuesday. Clinton landed in Pyongyang on Tuesday and promptly met with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, according to the state-run media in the tightly controlled communist nation. His visit was billed as an effort to gain the release of two journalists, but as everyone knows this release was already pre-arranged. This was already a done deal before Clinton even got there.
The real question should be...WHAT DID THIS MESS REALLY COST US?

Beer and Pretzels at the White House.

Did this take the cake? The most powerful man on earth spent 55 minutes of his priceless time simply sharing a beer with a police officer from Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a Harvard professor. This minutely orchestrated media event was designed to rescue Barack Obama from the most idiotic, yet nonetheless damaging, row of his presidency.

So he calls Italians Greasballs!

To further show how the Right's mantra of "less government" was furthered by planting either an idiot or a greaseball on their ticket.


Well thanks a lot http://truthshallrule.blogspot.com/
That was really a
derogatory term for an Italian, and I don't perticaually like that slur!
You know what I'm gonna do? I'm going to be a bigger man about it then you are and not even answer you. But know this! I don't like YOU.

So Much For The Religion Of Peace!

Pro-Government Forces Open Fire on Protesters in Iran - Government shuts down access to Internet and texting.

Government forces fired automatic weapons into thousands of pro-democracy protesters for a second day Thursday, and the military government said nine people were killed and 11 wounded.

Tens of thousands defied the ruling military junta's crackdown with a 10th straight day of demonstrations. Security forces also raided several monasteries overnight, beating monks and arresting more than 100, according to a monk at one monastery.

Their willingness to sacrifice to build a better future for others and to preserve our way of life is without a doubt, the Strength of our Nation.

Thoughts on David Letterman

Johnny Carson must be rolling over in his grave. Even the late Lenny Bruce is having a fit. While you were watching David Letterman -- a bitter guy who never saw a woman or a Republican he could stand -- trash Sarah Palin's 14-year-old daughter by "joking" that she was date-raped by Alex Rodriguez and stalked by Eliot Spitzer, you may have missed the memo. Dave's in good company..
One has to wonder why these so called comedians are getting big pay for trashing America?
I'm sick of self-described comedians thinking that they can get as disgusting and debasing as they want and say oh lighten up - it just a joke! No, it's not funny when they become downright mean and Letterman has gone from okay comedy to now just mean.

It's horrible what he did to Palin's daughters - first the 14 y/o and then thought it would be acceptable if he changed it to the 18 year old. Who thinks that way these days???? Oh, right, the "progressives." It's disgusting.

Another day, another dictator.

All of us were so eager for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to lose that we got caught up in the popular enthusiasm, especially among Iran's younger voters and Since the US has openly tossed Israel onto the rhetorical scrap heap, the passivity of the US toward Iran leaves Israel no survival chance unless it decapitates Iran's nukes unilaterally.
Was this election stolen? I don't know, I can easily see western reporters over-estimating urban vs. rural voting impact. However, the margin does seem far too wide, polling indicated a close race and turnout was huge.

This could get more interesting.

I think the younger Iranians understand that they are responsible for their leader's actions and that Ahmadinejad puts them in greater danger. After seeing what the countries around them have gone through, Afganistan, Iraq, Pakistan and to some extent Syria, there has to be some fear that an American or Israeli attack would be the beginning of really bad times
