Foggy Bottom blues

You hear all sorts of comments from different people that tell us the State Department puts the interest of other countries ahead of our own. For example, the latest scathing attacks against Blackwater - who also happens to have had a perfect record in defending VIPs.

The latest in a string of these episodes comes to us via this story. In it we learn that "...Rice has turned to former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter for tips ahead of her own conference this year."

What the hell is this? You're telling me that we are turning to the two largest foreign policy cluster fucks in the last generation for advice? These same two oxygen thieves are practically the entire reason we are where we are today in the world.

Carter's massive bumbling of middle east affairs brought the current shitbag regime to power in Iran and Clinton's screwed around in the middle east so much you'd think it was the oval office.

It's this kind of maddening "diplomacy" that just flat out drives me nuts. It's a shame, because I think Condi is a pretty smart cookie but apparently the bureaucracy at Foggy Bottom is too entrenched for anything good to come of it.

Another warm fuzzy story

It's been pretty dangerous for home intruders around these parts lately. I think this is the 3rd or 4th one that's been whacked lately by a homeowner who chose not to be a victim.

And this "victim" was a guy in a wheelchair. Way to go!

Iran should be paying attention

In this picture, we see a great before and after of the Syrian nuke site that the Israelis took out recently.

If I were the Iranians, I'd be paying pretty close attention...

Bizarre stabbing in Fannin County

Boy, you never really know what goes on in rural Texas, do you? Here's a charming story about a guy who's hitch-hiking, and gets picked up by a woman named Angie. Here's where the fun starts.
Soon thereafter, the 42-year-old driver invited Evans back to her horse barn just outside of Wolfe City.

When they arrived, the two became intimate, and officials say ‘Angie’ asked Evans to perform oral sex on her.
So far, so good, huh?
"(When he did) comply with the female subject, he found out it was in fact not a female, but a male," Sheriff Moore said.

Oops. That's a stabbin'

Officials say Evans pulled out a knife and stabbed ‘Angie’-- who is a man-- multiple times.

‘Angie’ was flown to Parkland Hospital where he was treated and released.
And what lesson have we learned from this, gentle readers?
Authorities warn regardless of the situation that picking up hitch hikers is never a good idea.

Elephants electrocuted in drunken rampage

You just can't make this stuff up:

GAUHATI, India - Six Asiatic wild elephants were electrocuted as they went berserk after drinking rice beer in India's remote northeast, a wildlife official said Tuesday.

AND it's not the first time this has happened, either:

The elephants are known to have a taste for rice beer brewed by tribal communities in India's northeast. Four wild elephants died in similar circumstances in the region three years ago.

Life in the jungle. It's rough.

The Agony and The Ecstasy

Watch the video on the left for the ecstasy. Loads of agony on the right.

Dual Texas Stars, one with hard-cover plates. Owie.
