When Did Moose And Squirrel Start Shouting "Allahu Akbar?"

     It's the Iraqi and Bullwinkle show!  Remember the voice-over announcer?  "Stay tuned for our next exciting episode, 'Fast Times As Baghdad Falls' or 'Today Mosul, Tomorrow The World.'"

     Odd, I remember it being funnier when I was a child.

     One thing I have to say: very early on in Mr. Obama's Presidency, I remarked how much he resembled a young Dick Nixon.   --He's certainly never looked more like Nixon than he does right now; he's a ski-slope nose and a single photograph away from a near-perfect likeness.

     Meanwhile, inside my head: "Gee, Mr. Peabody, that Mr. Mohammed sure didn't like dogs...."  "Shaddup, you, and hand me the puppy shampoo.  These rotten eggs aren't getting any fresher."

I was thinking the same thing last night, except that Nixon was someone who is smart and everyone hated, and Obama is stupid but everyone likes.

Its weird how so much is falling apart at the same time, difficult to stay out of loony conspiracy nut mode in such times.

Stupid? Perhaps, but it's cold comfort. He's winning. He has certainly exposed the idea of "checks and balances" as unworkable. What he's done, voting cannot fix. I'd gladly be proven wrong on that last point.

The ominous thing about this guy is the thought that a national political party has adopted a doctrine that every time they gain the Executive branch will be a dare to their opposition to impeach their guy, betting that the country won't want to do this more than once every century or so.

"...a national political party..." Mike? More like two of them.
