Mike's Blog Round Up

Good Morning! Closing out the week guest blogging, it is once again me, Alex that is, leaving the familiar confines of Martini Revolution. Thanks to Mike for asking me to fill in, and especially thanks to all the readers who dropped kind notes in comments and email.

The big newz of the day was, of course, Al Gore being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Among other insanity, one especially rabid wingnut assaulted Bush for not reacting like a rapid dog, as she did. Wingnuttia also fell suddenly in love with unelected judges.

Breaking later yesterday were uncharitable, if accurate, comments by General Richard Sanchez regarding the administration's war plan, if I may call it such, which the general referred to as a living nightmare. Naturally, all the wingnut hypocrites who defecated their drawers and cried foul about MoveOn's Petraeus ad promptly slimed the general who spoke unpleasant truths their wee little minds didn't want to hear.

I would be remiss if I failed to link this brief but incisive breakdown of Howie Kurtz, ultra-putz.

This take down of the Doughy Pantload demonstrates why I read Roger Ailes every goddamn day, while praising God for inventing the internets.

In the schadenfreude category, our nomination for the day's blogstorm is the Kerik scandal. Rudy's sidekick gets dirtier and dirtier.

This week was, as one blogger put it, "a gourmet, five-course meal of wingnuttery. I would be remiss if I didn't thank the Batshit Crazy community for providing such ample fodder for the week of roundups.
