There is comedy. There is high comedy. And then there is this pair of wackos who are married and, unfortunately, most likely breeding. It's one thing to disagree about points of religion. It's another thing to stab your husband in the hand with a pair of scissors over it. Apparently they never got to the "Turn the other cheek" part of the New Testament.
Al-Qaeda takes a hit...or do they?
Word is that Pakistani forces have surrounded the second highest-ranking member of Al-Qaeda near the Afghani border. I'd feel more confident about Zawahiri getting caught if it were American troops surrounding him. Instead, we have to rely on a military that is full of fundamentalist Islamic officers, many of whom gave support to the Taliban when they ran Afghanistan. Don't be surprised if Zawahiri makes an "amazing" escape.
It amazes me how the US continuously let Pakistan off the hook. They are rife with Al-Qaeda sympathizers, sold nuke technology to rogue countries and fund radical Islamic schools that churn out young men who hate America. In return we grant them non-NATO ally status so they can buy real high-tech weaponry. That'll teach em! I'm all for being pragmatic and holding off on settling up with them until we catch bin Laden. But do we have to give them a free pass and all the F-16s they can buy while we're at it?
If I see one more political ad....
I can't watch a half-hour of TV without seeing at least multiple political ads for both the candidates. It would be bearable if either of these ninnies was worth voting for. I thought 2000 was the worst year ever for candidates. Guess what? 2004 is going to take the title away.
Kerry and Bush are nothing but party hacks who spout party line BS for every answer. And what is worse is that other politicians, who probably want to say something else (like McCain or Lieberman), can't. So whom do you vote for in November? Try these guys. Yes, the Libertarian Party has some "different" ideas, but at least they can pick their positions based on the issues as opposed to what some half-baked special interest group demands of them. It's nice to know that somewhere, you can support gay marriage and gun ownership at the same time.
