Kristol pooh-poohed the fears that Sunnis and Shiites would be at each others'
throats, as "the stuff of pop psychology." Right. And having your head chopped
off is just a quick way to drop 11 pounds. Kristol, of course, is revered by
much of the right because he was Dan Quayle's chief of staff, and was known as
"Quayle's Brain." You know that. Which sounded impressive until I remembered Dan
Quayle didn't have a brain. And now, Mr. Kristol proposes immediate military
action against Iran, predicting the Iranians will thank us for it. Hey, you know
what, Nostrodamus? Why don't you sit this one out?

The “He Misled” Theme Song
(Sing to the Mr. Ed Theme Song.)
By Madeleine Begun Kane
Bush never said “stay the course,” of course.
And no one can challenge this ass of horse.
He lies, perforce, to change the course of election day ahead.
Go right to the source. He’ll lie of course.
Won’t give you an answer that you’ll endorse.
He’s never on a truthful course.
Lies you will be fed.
Pundits yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day.
And talking heads will rarely challenge the lies that the Bushies say.
George Dubya has no remorse, of course,
And Georgie will lie till his voice is hoarse.
He’d love to rule all the world by force.
But listen to this:
Happy days ahead!

year, while France, the United States and Japan slipped further down the scale
of 168 countries rated, the group Reporters Without Borders said
yesterday..."Relations between the media and the Bush administration sharply
deteriorated after the president used the pretext of 'national security' to
regard as suspicious any journalist who questioned his 'war on terrorism,' " the
