Dept. of "What dope is this guy smoking?"

One can always count on Bush and Co. to fill us in on what the real picture is in the Middle East. Yesterday I heard him declare--no less than 5 times--on NPR the following:

"Hezbollah attacked Israel. I know Hezbollah is connected to Iran. Now is the time for the world to confront this danger . . . Now is the time to address the root cause of the problem and the root cause of the problem is terrorist groups trying to stop the advance of democracy."

You've got to be kidding me.

It's these ridiculous links that are made and repeated ad infinitum in the media that end up sticking in people's minds. I mean, all this is about democracy, for Pete's sake? Give me a break.

This is one big reason why when I tell my mother I'll likely be heading to Jordan in September on a quick job she asks me, "But don't you think it's unsafe?" Jordan is not its own entity, but rather one small part of an insane, monochromatic area of the world where terrorists run rampant and look to take out as many people as possible. And my mom's been to Jordan more than once herself--she's one of the more enlightened ones! Geez, this stuff gets so tiring.

The 2009 Get "Family Guy" an Emmy Award bet basketball Campaign continues in full force this week, with creator Seth MacFarlane granting a wide-ranging interview to Playboy that's sure to generate some buzz. First, sportsbook the news. fox may have opted against airing an abortion-themed "Family Guy," but MacFarlane says the show will soon feature a musical parody called "Down Syndrome Girl."
"Stewie sings it to Chris when Chris is getting ready for his date with a girl march madness who has Down syndrome," MacFarlane explained. "It’s a bouncy Broadway number."
The writer says joke is that the character with Down syndrome "is also a bitch. Chris is dominated by this incredibly pushy, controlling girl with Down syndrome. I actually (Down syndrome advocates will) appreciate it. It’s funny and not disrespectful.
