"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Actually, It's Easier Than You Think

Tom Tomorrow says:

It must be tough to be a right wing blogger.

Every time you get your story straight, somebody comes along and screws up the narrative.

and points to an AP story about the International Red Cross reporting detainee complaints about mishandling of the Koran starting in 2002.

Mr. Tomorrow then sardonically adds:

Coming up next: righties earnestly discuss why the Red Cross hates America.

However, this sardonicnessism is misplaced. We've known FOR A LONG TIME the International Red Cross hates America.

Neil Boortz, July 14, 2004

The International Committee of the Red Cross (which is separate from the American Red Cross,) has completely lost its mind... The anti-American template must be followed...anything to make us look bad.

Bill O'Reilly, July 15, 2004

The International Red Cross, which is, well, kind of soft on terrorism, is demanding that Saddam Hussein either be released or charged by June 30, the handover day... Now I think we all admire the International Red Cross's compassion toward a vicious killer and this is just another example of how politicized the International Red Cross has become.

Wall Street Journal, April 17, 2005

... the ICRC has become the leading practitioner of "lawfare"--a form of asymmetrical warfare that aims to constrain American power using the law.

And 17 million other people.

Why isn't the WSJ defending me from the lawfare being waged against me? This lawfare is an attempt to prevent me from taking over the candy store down the street although I have WAY more guns than those candy guys.

I am totally against lawfare.

George Orwell said: "In a time of universal deceit, telling truth is a revolutionary act."

Had to pass that along.

Constraint using the law? The nerve of this organization astounds me! They just need Alberto Gonzales to tell them how quaint their laws are and I'm sure they'll move on.
