"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

Please note that Ken Silverstein has retracted the most important part of the post several days ago about Silvestre Reyes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. (I mentioned this here.) Silverstein now says Jose Rodriguez, the former CIA executive catching blame for the destruction of the Al Qaeda interrogation tapes, is NOT in business with a brother of Reyes.

From the retraction piece:

“This is like making a snuff film. It’s incredible that they felt they could put it on tape.”

Yes, I have no idea where those white trash rednecks at Abu Ghraib got the ideas that they had.

don't you know you're supposed to put out the same falsehood 254 times on your front page and then run a meaningless correction on whatever is the blog equivalent of pg A14?
