Members of the United Nations General Assembly look on as Pretzeldint Bush once again relates how he caught a perch in a stocked pond on his "ranch" in Crawford, Texas, USA.

I wish I could say this was unbelievable

The US forces take a page from the trophy hunter and poachers' bible. The US forces are luring in Iraqis so they can shoot them. This is called baiting. Here is the link.

The picture above is a bear at a bait trough. Could you, would you, should you shoot it? I am not viscerally anti-hunting by any means, but baiting just seems like cheating. You might as well shoot a pig in a sty (and pork tastes a lot better than bear.)

Baiting Iraqis is beyond the pale. In many states baiting for game (by hunters) is illegal. And I would add that in all states, I think it is unethical.

But as an anti-insurgent tactic, it is unbelievable. In a culture where so much is missing, any found object is a tool not necessarily a weapon. Why even bother with the snipers? Let's just put out shiny geegaws that explode when they're touched, or poison the drinking water.

Why do I always have to sit with the wackos?

Madame Tussauds flew its wax statue of Abraham Lincoln to D.C. on a Delta Shuttle flight on Thursday. Abe rode in the coach section with regular, non-presidential passengers. As for how they got him to sit down, a spokeswoman informs us that he will be depicted in a seated position in the wax museum, which opens in Penn Quarter on Oct. 5th.
As long as he's not in an emergency exit row, I'm cool with it.

News to me

Very disturbing article in the Telegraph.

Fears of dollar collapse as Saudis take fright
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, International Business Editor

Saudi Arabia has refused to cut interest rates in lockstep with the US Federal Reserve for the first time, signalling that the oil-rich Gulf kingdom is preparing to break the dollar currency peg in a move that risks setting off a stampede out of the dollar across the Middle East.

Thank you, George.

Non-fiddlers, please feel free to print out and color the picture of Scooby Doo above while the economy burns.

Sen. Larry Craig (R- Concourse C, Stall 3) says that he will follow through with his intention to leave the Senate. He has accepted a "position" as the color commentator for Men's Extreme Twister on ESPN13.

"Left foot, blow, I mean blue!" he did not add with a wink.

From the Department of Bull Poop Department

This is from Think Progress. Colonel Codpiece has indicated that he would like to serve in Iraq.

The Washington Post’s Dan Froomkin highlights comments made recently by President Bush to a group of military bloggers. Blogger “N.Z. Bear” reported that Bush told the group he wishes he could be serving in Iraq — except that he’s too old: Responding to one of the bloggers in Iraq he expressed envy that they could be there, and said he’d like to be there but “One, I’m too old to be out there, and two, they would notice me.”

(and three, my daddy says I don't have to go.)
This is such hogwash. It boggles the mind that this draft dodging, duty avoiding piece of excrescence could even form the words. We all know he is a chickenhawk of the yellowest belly. Have the bald heads finally got to him?

A bemused Vladimir Putin looks on as George Bush tries to explain to Condaleeza Rice just what he is doing with the milking machine.

"It vas badenov when the first lady stopped to check out the AI* technology," Putin forgot to say.

The latest from Winnebago

When asked about his post senate plans, Larry Craig says that he plans to do more camping. His customized travel trailer is shown above.

Gobble, gobble, gobble

Young republicans discuss their strategy following the resignation of Idaho's senator Larry Craig. (gobble, gobble)

I'm baaack

I should go away more often. I got more comments for leaving than I do for my snark. Morse pegged it, Idaho, and Mr. Debakey confirmed it by looking at the image names. (cheater!)

I'm back, did I miss anything...? But seriously the news in Idaho is interesting, for some reason it was all Craig all the time. You'd think he was a hypocritical (partly) gay republican who got caught trying to hook up in a men's room or something.

And I did layover in the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport on the way out. And the answer is no. Too bad I didn't know what news was about to break or I would have taken some pictures. As airports go, it's more mall-like than most, good selection of foods, and you can even buy fried cheese curds at the A&W. It's sad when the airports are the highlight of the travel. Airplanes are only marginally less crowded than a Tokyo subway.
