James Wolcott's rage is palpable:

The war crimes of the United States compound by the minute, the hour, the day. I predict that George Bush, upon leaving office, will be the most despised president in American history. He will have his core support, the clotted, stunted brains that collect at sites like and Powerline, but he will enjoy no Reaganesque orange sunset afterglow (or Nixonian self-rehabilitation), so deep, lasting, and tragic is the damage he's done, a damage abetted by a craven, corrupt political class and a press that even now, as the full dimensions of the disaster unfold before us, is unable to sound alarm, so accustomed as they've become to their role as sponges and clever snots. History will not forgive Bush or the United States, nor should it, for raising and destroying the hopes of the Iraqi people, and presiding over the dissolution of their nation into a failed state.

Cold comfort

It is hard to believe that I was once "comforted" by the thought that the incompentent response to Katrina may have been merely race-based.

Watching the Bushes casually suggest that the bombing of Lebanon should go on another week, I have realized (yet again!) that they really and truly hate everyone.

Amazing Screw On Head pt. 3
Amazing Screw On Head pt. 2
Amazing Screw On Head pt. 1

What I'm watching...

Imagine Monty Python and H.P. Lovecraft collaborating on a Raiders of the Lost Ark-type steampunk adventure

The Amazing Screw-On Head

The title character, enthusiastically voiced by Paul Giamatti, is an intrepid robot secret agent who can fasten his head to a series of interchangeable bodies. Together with his manservant Mr. Groin (Patton Oswalt) and his loyal canine ally Mr. Dog, Screw-On Head battles the forces of evil at the behest of President Abraham Lincoln. In the pilot, faithfully adapted from the comic, that means preventing the nefarious Emperor Zombie (David Hyde-Pierce) and his vampiric lost love Patience (Molly Shannon) from unleashing a reptilian demigod to wreak endless horror upon the United States.
