Media Watch: The Sharyl Attkisson approach
So much for Obama’s “one president at a time” stance! In related news, the HuffPo reports that General Petraeus and Def. Sec. Gates have both been pushing back on Obama’s desire to withdraw all combat brigades out of Iraq within 16 months: WASHINGTON, Feb 2 (IPS) – CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence [...]
I LOL’d at this bit from the Washington Examiner: Republicans on Capitol Hill jokingly took up a collection to bring her home. “I never thought I’d say this, but I really wish Nancy Pelosi was back here in the Capitol,” a top GOP aide said. In related news, the Nutroots are upset over some of [...]
Via that eeevil right wing news outlet, the WaPo: After a meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, Ms. Pelosi announced that she had delivered a message from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert that “Israel was ready to engage in peace talks” with Syria.

I guess old habits die hard. Allah’s got the details. Update: On a more serious note, author and historian Arthur Herman has a must-read piece up at Commentary Online which discusses how he believes the US should respond to Iran: But, as I have tried to show, the most immediate menace Iran poses is not [...]
Sounds like the work of Islamofascists – again.
Is he acting in the role of “advisor” to terrorist groups now? No, wait. He’s doing it because he ‘supports the troops’ and the US, no doubt. Way to go, Blumenthal.
