A little bit of news

So, a personal crisis of the break-up variety has been interfering with my usual desire to read the news, but here's a quick update on what's happening in the wide world of lunacy:

Susan Sarandon is in talks to play Cindy Sheehan. Ah yes, let's give my favorite media whore a little more attention. Because God knows, what she has is really worth hearing. Frankly, at the point where you compare Bush to Hitler, you have stopped being an intelligent dissenter, and are now just an idiotic insult hurler. And how about her comment that mothers who have lost sons in Iraq and are not joining her peacenik parade are "brainwashed"? This is in the same vein as the classic liberal feminist 'women who want to stay home and have babies are just brainwashed' argument. How utterly insulting, to be told by someone like Cindy Sheehan that you are just a brainwashing victim. It's bad enough that she has exploited her own son's memory as a political tool, the least she could do is respect the memory of those who truly believe in what is being done in Iraq.

Hillary Clinton quotes Bible. Either hell has frozen over and Hillary has decided that the Bible contains some useful stuff, or she's making another campaign effort, believing that "red state voters" are so religiously indoctrinated that the mere mention of the Bible will whip them into a frenzy of righteousness and persuade them to vote for her. I could be wrong, but I think the second interpretation comes a little closer to the truth.

Alright, that felt good.
