EPIC FAILURE DOUG HENWOOD BLAMES HILLARY CLINTON FOR HIS SHRIVELED AND USELESS PENIS AND HAS TAKEN TO HARPER'S TO VENT BECAUSE SEXISTS KNOW THEY ALWAYS HAVE A HOME AT HARPER'S.
IN A NEVER-ENDING ESSAY, NUTLESS DOUG VENTS AND RAGES NON-STOP OVER ONE WOMAN, SOUNDING LIKE A LESS MASCULINE JAN BRADY, BUT NEVER ONCE MANAGES TO EXPLAIN WHY, IN SIX YEARS, HE'S NEVER DEVOTED THIS MUCH ATTENTION TO BARRY O WHO, FOR THE RECORD, IS PRESIDENT AND IS DOING ACTUAL DAMAGE?
OH, THAT'S RIGHT! BARRY O DOESN'T HAVE A SCARY VAGINA!
FEEL FOR LIZA FEATHERSTONE, THE WOMAN DUMB ENOUGH TO MARRY THE ELDERLY, NUTLESS, TINY DICKED DOUG HENWOOD.
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
Let's start with the biggest nonsense of the week.
CJ Chivers wrote poorly this week -- no surprise. Chivers is a New York Times no-star who has clocked more miles than a bald tire and all those years of working for the paper have really never amounted to anything of note. The paper that creates and spits out journalistic 'stars' couldn't do anything with Chivers.
This was demonstrated yet again when he had an assignment fall in his lap. Michael Gordon or Judith Miller could have created shockwaves with it. A number of others could have painted it for what it was -- a story of government indifference to the suffering of soldiers sent into a risky situation (without appropriate gear) and then ignored as they suffered. All Chivers could do was go rote and hope he'd pleased an old college professor.
It was left to the right wing media to do what Miller (no longer with the paper) or Gordon might have done, run around like Chicken Little insisting the sky was falling and it was falling WMDs!
And we waited to see if the Forest Gump of White House occupants, Bully Boy Bush (the original, "I am not a smart man . . ."), would prove to be as dumb as he was so often thought to be.
Bush was actually rather smart this week.
He kept his mouth shut and let others stick their necks out and claim he was right and that he had been vindicated.
He let others lie.
He kept his mouth shut because the chemical weapons US troops encountered in Iraq were not WMDs.
They were not what Bully Boy Bush sold the war on.
What were they?
What you can find in Russia today. What you can find in parts of Eastern Europe still.
Old stockpiles that should be destroyed.
(But how do you destroy them? Even 'safe' procedures will damage the environment -- a reality that should be considered when these monsters create weapons to begin with. And 'monsters' refers to the multinational corporations.)
Counting those decaying -- and largely unusable -- artifacts would have been like Bully Boy Bush pointing the vast number of landmines littering Iraq and claiming they too were a threat to US lives.
Like the landmines, the aged stockpiles were not 'deployable' and were only a threat for any unlucky enough to stumble upon them (or live in the area -- those weapons degrade slowly and release chemicals into the immediate area as they do degrade).
Bully Boy Bush did not declare, "With a lot of elbow grease and chewing gum, Saddam Hussein is hoping to glob together some decaying chemical weapons and, with a really big slingshot, aim them at Philadelphia."
March 19, 2003, Bully Boy Bush insisted:
The people of the United States and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder. We will meet that threat now with our Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard and Marines, so that we do not have to meet it later with armies of firefighters and police and doctors on the streets of our cities.
The US troops suffering -- 17 plus seven Iraqis according to Chivers -- wouldn't have had to 'meet that threat' if Bully Boy Bush hadn't sent them into Iraq. (And the bulk of what was discovered, as Chivers noted, were supplied by the US government.)
While so many wasted time on fantasies and lies this week, Iraq suffered as usual.
Today the Parliament met. And, in real news, the Parliament voted on the security ministries. National Iraqi News Agency reports Mohammed Ghaban is the new Minister of Interior (over the federal police and prisons) after winning the votes of 197 MPs while Khaled al-Obeidi is the new Minister of Defense after securing 173 MP votes.
The Parliament voted on other positions as well and they matter also. For example, All Iraq News reports Bayan Nouri is now the Minister of Women Affairs, Hoshyar Zebari (who served 8 years as Foreign Minister) is now Minister of Finance, Faryad Rawandozi has been voted Minister of Culture, Dirbaz Mohamed was voted Minister of Immigration, Saman Abdullah was voted Minister of State, and Adil al-Shirshab was voted Minister of Tourism.
