Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
I ranted a little about the ridiculousness
and obscenity of Henry Kissinger being appointed head of the investigation
into intelligence failures leading up to 9/11. I guess he'd be one of our
leading experts on intelligence failures, having kept the Vietnam War going
for several years longer (and several thousand American casualties more) than
was necessary for political reasons. Oh plus then remember that the whole
war turned out to have been fought for no real reason.
At first I thought the Kenneth Lay nomination was too obvious a joke, but
then yesterday I heard that Bush actually did name a C.E.O. who'd been forced
to resign in an accounting scandal as one of his new economic advisors. Cartoonists
just can't keep up with this guy.
Additional notes: "Merkwuerdigichliebe" was Dr. Strangelove's name
before he Americanized it. And it's always a pleasure to take another cruel
shot at Ronald Reagan. It used to drive me crazy that he just kept not dying,
but now I've come to enjoy the thought of his ongoing suffering and humiliation.
May he live to be a hundred in his own feces!
