Dowd to Fey: And when they met, it was murder (Ava and C.I.)
'Whore' is a fitting word
The Miseducation of Katrina vanden Heuvel
'Iraq deal will not end occupation' (Socialist Worker)
I love all of the above including Ava and C.I.'s TV commentary and Dowd & Fey commentary (I didn't help on those, I helped on the others).
Condi was on three Sunday programs yesterday and I'm swiping this from the State Department's site:
|Secretary Rice Discusses Pakistan on News Shows|
Secretary Rice (Dec. 7): "I did say to the Pakistanis that the argument that these are non-state actors is not acceptable. In fact, non-state actors acting from your territory are still your responsibility. Obviously, there are issues of arrests of people who might have been involved, first, of course, to involve themselves very transparently in the investigation. There may have been support elements, not of the Pakistani Government but within Pakistan, that were helping these terrorists." ABC's This Week | CNN's Late Edition | Fox News Sunday
And read to the bottom of this entry for the perspective on Condi. (It's by C.I. and I was laughing when I read it because I could hear the disbelief/amazement in C.I.'s voice over Condi's latest push.)
Someone whose name I don't know e-mailed the Google search for The Common Ills to me:

And he wants to know why "Dowd to Fey: And when they met, it was murder (Ava and C.I.)" shows up in The Common Ills? He knows C.I. provided a link to it Sunday night but why in the brief part Google highlights does that show? I don't know. Anyone else?
No idea. And I hadn't asked C.I. but I got a call and C.I. says no idea as well. The reason C.I. called is a photo of one of my new favorites Barbra Streisand. This is from the White House website:
President George W. Bush introduces 2008 Kennedy Center Honoree George Jones, second from left, Sunday, Dec. 7, 2008, during the Kennedy Center Gala Reception in the East Room at the White House. Jones is applauded by fellow honorees, from left, Morgan Freeman, Barbra Streisand, Twyla Tharp, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend White House photo by Eric Draper
So there's Barbra.
