"In regions sufficiently close to the political event horizon truth and facts simply cease to exist."
She was appointed by Sandy Berger? Isn't it interesting how life all seems to make sense some days? Ed thinks it was a sting...
It turns out that the common conservative pejorative "LA Slimes" turns out to be even more literally true than anyone thought. Even I have become impressed with this little saga...

Found It At Last

I had been looking around for the best pithy leftist tirade I could find on Chimpy McBushy. At long last I think I have found it:
First, he incites war, then falsifies the causes, then odiously wraps himself in a cloak of Christian hypocrisy, and slowly but surely leads mankind to war, not without calling God to witness the honesty of his attack.

Really, I think most leftists and even a lot of folks who consider themselves liberals would agree that this is really right on target. I may be off base here of course, but I think this would "taste test" extremely well with the Democratic party stalwarts -- not to mention Europeans given their, ah, lack of sympathy for Christianity.

Why have I been looking for this? Well, being the energetic debater that I am, I need something concise that I can give a good Fisking to. I've had a good Fisking needing to get out for a while now.

So here goes the Fisking:

This was a direct quote from Hitler about FDR.

I think I'm done now. Quite sure in fact.

And my regards to No Pasaran and Erik Svane for making it all so effortless...
Those nutty Germans seem to think there was a HOLOCAUST or something? What do they know anyway?
"Surely the NYeT wouldn't stoop to something like that."
" “[T]hat is one field in which I am an expert,” Bukovsky (who spent twelve years in Soviet labor camps) says, “I know how Gulags spring up.” "

Surely I didn't forget to mention that Bruce Bawer thinks there may be just a wee bit of a Crisis In Europe Erabia ?
You say you're for women's rights? And you didn't even know about this? Well, maybe not so much...
I seem to be a tad late noticing Eric's gloves coming off...

The Committee Of Walter Duranty's Ghost

"When Walter Duranty won a Pulitzer Prize for the Times in connection with his mendacious coverage of Stalin's Soviet Union, he performed valuable public relations work for a mass murderer. He nevertheless did no direct harm to the United States. Today's Pulitzer Prize award to the Times brings a new shame to the Pulitzer Prize committee that builds on its disgrace last year via the award to the AP."

I would disagree that Duranty did no direct harm to the United States. But clearly his ghost and various flavors of current earthly minions have the ghosts of Goebbels, Gramsci and Munzenberg all beaming with pride.
Ummmm... Where is Kfar Kana again?
Remember the Kurds. The MSM dearly hopes you'll forget. It would make a hash out of their risibly puerile story line...

Steyn: He Hasn't Got A Bomb...

"You know what's great fun to do if you're on, say, a flight from Chicago to New York and you're getting a little bored? Why not play being President Ahmadinejad? Stand up and yell in a loud voice, "I've got a bomb!" Next thing you know the air marshal will be telling people, "It's OK, folks. Nothing to worry about. He hasn't got a bomb." And then the second marshal would say, "And even if he did have a bomb it's highly unlikely he'd ever use it." And then you threaten to kill the two Jews in row 12 and the stewardess says, "Relax, everyone. That's just a harmless rhetorical flourish." And then a group of passengers in rows 4 to 7 point out, "Yes, but it's entirely reasonable of him to have a bomb given the threatening behavior of the marshals and the cabin crew."

That's how it goes with the Iranians. The more they claim they've gone nuclear, the more U.S. intelligence experts -- oops, where are my quote marks? -- the more U.S. intelligence "experts" insist no, no, it won't be for another 10 years yet. The more they conclusively demonstrate their non-compliance with the IAEA, the more the international community warns sternly that, if it were proved that Iran were in non-compliance, that could have very grave consequences. But, fortunately, no matter how thoroughly the Iranians non-comply it's never quite non-compliant enough to rise to the level of grave consequences. You can't blame Ahmadinejad for thinking "our enemies cannot do a damned thing." "
"This week Teheran threw down the gauntlet. The greatest battle of this war - the battle to prevent the world's most dangerous regime from attaining the most dangerous weapons known to man - has begun. The moment has arrived for President George W. Bush to make clear if he is, in the final analysis, the leader of the free world or its undertaker."
