That was quite onomatopoeic.

I'm not sure FAIR's restraint is good for my health. Their efficient detachment makes them all the more damning (as you say), but my blugger brain starts looking for the usual release valves. Where's the sardonic shotgun to the face, FAIR? This builds into gnawing unarticulated anger. So I come here of course. :)

Maybe he has hydrophobic legs.

I'm gonna guess "Jesus". He thinks he's Jesus, and maybe so do others, or maybe his feet are as swimfins. Take heart, Petraeus is quite capable of keeping the opium fields SAFE for Democracy.

Maybe Raddatz is hydrocephalic, hence her impaired ability to craft metaphors.

Yes, but the question remains -- Did it really rain last Thursday?

It is easier to charm the birds right out of the trees when they are covered in oil. It's all of a piece, really.

Now I totally have to see those forbidden Gnostic texts revealing that Jesus and King Midas are actually the same person. It certainly explains the freakout over the temple moneylenders: the very sight of gold pushed him over the edge.

The first eight comments are so invaluable that I cannot improve on them.

And one does wonder how long before FAIR is taken down and put away - no one can be allowed the truth during these times of "terrorist" activity.

I'm with Elise- thank you all for invaluable commentary. Although, my heart belongs to Jonathan for "BLAAAARRRRRRR"
That's pretty much what rings in my ears every time I turn on ANY 24 hr news channel
I come here to scrape the scales from my eyes- it's a good kind of hurt. :)

Alex - if you have access to Al Jazeera (English) or Euronews, check them out - they have a higher signal-to-noise ratio.
