God forbid that Kurt Vonnegut note that we've liberated two countries, saved tens of thousands from Saddam's killing machine, wounded al Qaeda, and prevented more attacks on America.

No, in this deluded fool's mind, we're simply more hated and feared than the Nazis ever were.

Somebody teach him about Godwin's Law. Quick! Before he gets even more boring and hackneyed.

The world's last mass-murdering Stalinist dictator agrees with MoveOn.org.

Damn! That's how to deal with a kidnapper.

Hey Mikey, I think he likes it!

Yeah, definitely Karl Rove.

(Regstration required. Sorry.)

John Kerry is a lying widow-chaser who's praying for a pass.

Poor bastard. He chose...poorly.

Well, there goes my bonus.

(As if.)

I blame Karl Rove.

Bloody hell! Those sods told me I was receiving the body of Christ.

Transubstantiation my ass.

Another nation freed from a mass-murdering dictator hates our guts.

Is it just me, or does all this bluster seem a little overdone?

I think the mullahs can see the writing on the wall. They're afraid of their own population, which despises them for their corruption, and they're afraid of the Americans, who will hold hem to their treaty commitments. End result: hysterical threats.

I particularly enjoyed the bit about how "Iran would consider itself no longer bound by its commitments to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in the event of an attack." I'm pretty sure the mullahs have already abrogated their responsibilities. The fig leaf that covers them has been arranged by that cesspool called the United Nations.

I think we'll start bombing Iran at 12:01 AM, November 3, 2004.

This really does say it all.

If Atlanta's Olympics were less than they could have been, Bill Campbell's administration might have been a leading cause.

(Subscription required. Sorry.)

Update: More news here and here.

Let's face it: Bill Campbell was one of a line of black politicians who've used Atlanta to enrich themselves. His failure was he got caught. Maynard looted the city via the bond business, while Shirley's using the airport to enrich herself and her family.

Both Maynard and Shirley kept level heads. Bill was another story. First thing he did was to appoint his Atlanta Police chauffeur to be Atlanta Chief of Police. She wasn't competent, but she was malleable. Then it was off to the races.

The only upside is that we're probably going to have to have relatively honest government for a few years: there's little left to loot.

I hope this works.

I mean, where would I be if I couldn't tell foreigners, yankees, and Californians that "Delta's ready when you are"?

This is why people prefer not to evacuate when a hurricane is on its way.

Here's a man with children, forced out of is home by a hurricane, refused return by some petty bureaucrat, and finally tasered by some jackbooted fascist.

Now, tell me he's going to leave home next time.

The world's most disgusting food. Bar none.

When I was living in Japan, we ended up ordereing a bowl of these on a dare. There was nothing that could kill the taste or the sliminess. We dowsed them with mustard *which only intensified the nastiness*. In the end we swallowed them one at a time, with a swig of beer for each one. Kind of like taking pills.

Natto. Ugh.

I take two things from this story.

1. The Iraqi government is getting pretty tired of the relentless torrent of lies and half-truths issuing from most of the reporters in Iraq.

2. The Iraqi government doesn't want reporters around when it hands al Sadr his pass to his 70 virgins and the eternal celestial dirt nap.

Expect an assault on the Imam Ali mosque any time now.

More thoughts: Bottom line: the press is no longer a neutral observer and reporter. Press people have a bias and an agenda. Increasingly, journalists screaming about free speech rights are seen as propagandists demanding the right to spread the big lie. Their credibility is right down there with used car salesmen and politicians.

The U.S. press has thrown in with Kerry. As Evan Thomas said, they're going to make Kerry and Edwards look as good as possible. Hence, no reports about the Swift Boat veterans, most of whom consider Kerry unfit for any sort of command. In Iraq, by comparison, the press is working hard to make things look as bad as possible in order to drag down Bush.

Ultimately Americans may lose their right of free speech. Once the press has reduced itself to cheering section for the Democratic party, well, it's really nothing more than another advertising agency. At that point, I guess the FTC gets to regulate our free speech.

The pampered, decadent Western Europeans are about to lose some of their defense contractors.

I don't think that Chirac, et al., truly realize how badly they've screwed themselves, vis-a-vis the U.S., but this gives a good idea. Although, France may be happy that Europe's finally dancing to a French tune.

Were the Atlanta Olympics this bad?

I was working in Japan for most of the games, so I got no first-hand experiences. I got back just before the games ended and went to the track and field semi-finals, which I enjoyed. Most Atlantans I know seem to have enjoyed the games. Years after the games, having a pint in Freeney's in Galway, I got to talking to the bar tender and found he'd been to the games. He loved the time he spent in Atlanta.

So, I don't know. In any event, I've yet to hear cute little Katie Couric say anything like "Whoohoo! These games could suck worse than Atlanta's!!! Yeah! We won't be the worst any more!"

Update: Previous Olympics have had attendance problems as well.

Notably absent from the list of woes is...Atlanta.

Bill Campbell skipped town right after his term as Mayor of Atlanta was up.

We may eventually find out why.

Kerry's campagin is over. In fact, we may even see him back out of the nomination before the general election.

Why? Because of his Vietnam record.

It's all sooooooo funny. The Democrats decided the Iraq war was a wedge issue that could be dealt with by getting Kerry to report for duty. That in itself turned the convention into a failure. You had three days of social and domestic issues - upon which the Democrats might be able to win, and which the base just eats up - and on the fourth day you bring out the band playing Souza bits and put a saluting poodle up on the stand. The Democrats think the Vietnam war was an evil thing which exposed America's to-the-bone nastiness and unfitness for existence. They've been protraying Iraq as a second Vietnam. So what do they do on the fourth day of the convention? Why, trot out Vietnam. Bummer, dude.

Kerry's speech was not about his 20 years in the Senate, not about his time as Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, not even about how he's managed to seduce two - count them, *two* - ultra-rich women, but about his four months in Vietnam.

He ran on that, and now he's being challenged on it, and what do we find?

Well, two of the Purple Hearts were for scratches. The Silver Star was for shooting a fleeing enemy soldier in the back. There were double-secret missions that nobody else knows about.

This guy is starting to look like a compulsive liar. And it's going to kill his chances at the Presidency.

Now we know which foreign leaders want Kerry elected.

The sink that Mrs. Livininamerica must not be allowed to see....

This reminds me of when Khomeini was having heart trouble.

His doctors came to him with good and bad news. The good news was that his condition was treatable. The bad news was that he'd have to go to America for the treatment.

Last night Mrs. Livininamerica, unable to sleep, got up to do some computer work. She claims that when she returned she found I had fashioned a graven image of her from her pillows, and was sleeping quite happily.

I dismissed the story out of hand. Then I read this.

Have you heard any of these advertisements?

Well, guess what? Only white people are bigoted. Only white people are racist. Everyone else is well-balanced and without prejudice.

I'm sick of this. If I ever hear an advertisement where a black person says all whites look alike, and is stopped short by another black person, or a black child is warned not to play with a white child, then I'll take these ads a little more seriously.

Until then, this is just a nasty little bit of racial stereotyping and I don't appreciate it.

Quick question to all of you wannabe Idols: Who's your U.S. Senator? Who's your U.S. Representative? What's this year's deficit?

Screw Simon. Fear your ignorance.

Another rare event in Atlanta. Here's a reason to skip work today.

Look out! She's starting to blow.
