This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

If only we had listened!


This is Douglas Feith, who was part of the Office of Special Plans under Donald Rumsfeld. What was the Special Plan? Why, invading Iraq, of course! Silly hypothetical question asker, that you should have forgotten so soon.

Mr. Feith has written a memoir about the run up to the Iraq War, where the people in his Office were the only ones listening seriously to the bullshit artists like Curveball who told us Saddam had every bad weapon conceived by the mind of man and was planning to make new, even worse ones. Guess what his memoir says?

It's somebody else's fault that Iraq is such a colossal goat fuck!

Wow, that's a surprise! The problem was that he, genius Douglas Feith, was cut out of the picture, much as I have cropped him out of his official picture. Who was given power that would have better been entrusted to him?

Spooks and colored people.

No, that's not redundant. No ancient racial epithets are being used. Spooks as in the CIA, who dogged his brilliant work at every turn, and colored people like Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, who didn't do their jobs very well, spoiling the Special Plans Feith and Paul Wolfowitz had dreamed up.

If only every public official was as brilliant and dedicated as Douglas Feith!

And if only we had enough jails to house them all now!

Mr. Feith really is a one-man incitement to anti-semitism, though there are so many of his cronies like Wolfowitz and Elliot Abrams who have heroically been doing their part too. I thought we'd seen the last of this bunch after Reagan and Iran-Contra, but nobody seemed to have broken out the wooden stakes last time, so they came back with a vengeance. This time, silver bullets AND wooden stakes are going to be required. And get out that garlic necklance while you're at it.

I believe he has been declared "the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the earth" according to General Tommy Franks.

dont you just love how ALL of them just pass the blame buck around -- and you know what -- they are getting away with it

sfmike: I don't disagree with your characterizations of Feith, Wolfowitz and Abrams, but if the argument were "Cheney and Bush are proof that we should hate all white males", I would have to disagree with you.

Padre: As you might guess, Feith doesn't have much nice to say about Franks, either. In some ways, I think this administration, while all Republican, is/was something like what China was like during The Gang of Four. A lot of very ugly turf battles.

DCap: They are getting away with it now, but the game isn't over just yet.

Dear Matty: Point well taken.

For instance, the closet gay crowd, what with Condi, Ken Mehlman, Karl Rove, Karen Hughes, Larry Craig, etc., are another way overrepresented minority in this criminal administration, and it's no reason to hate the gays/lesbians, though I sure do find it personally embarrassing to think of them as members of my tribe. But it's nothing new, as J. Edgar Hoover demonstrates, in his historical role as Closet Case Evil Homo Number One.

Nice comparison (Bush administration to Gang of Four).
