Truth? Beloved Leader had a most excellent reason to invade Iraq: To prevent the Apocalypse. Seriously. At least according to some French former leader neither married to Carla Bruni nor for whom she was a groupie.
Assholes: The Saudis. Any of them, all of them. I hate the Republicans’ submissive love of them. Let the get GOP be their submissives.
Uber Asshole: Sen. Jeff Sessions. Clearly, he has nothing positive to contribute to society. It’s time for him to go or, for that matter, “go”, in a Bill O’Reilly on Vitter sense. Just saying, interpret it as you will….

Essential reading: Obama; Less than Hoover (I said it first, this guy lays it all out). It’s the July 2009 Harper’s cover story. Can’t find a public link to it yet but here’s a taste. And a little Obama porn is here for the believers. (And again, I apologize for besmirching Hoover by comparing Obama to him. Obama clearly falls short of Hoover.

Hint: You have to stay sharp when it’s some big business touting anything eco-friendly.
