“Before the Democrats start throwing around accusations, shouldn’t they at least agree on what would constitute a scandal?” Exactly, Mr. Taranto.
Quick Saudi links (lost the others- thought I had saved them in Word, but they now are in the great data graveyard in the sky):
Overview from the Center for Defense Information (never heard of them, so can not make any claims about thecredibility).
ISLAM IS NOT THE SOURCE OF TERRORISM, BUT ITS SOLUTION: OCCUPATION IS THE WORST FORM OF TERRORISM
Mary McGrory, in yesterday’s WaPo, pens a column titled Classic Overkill. And no. She is not referencing her specious arguments.
Just don’t have much to say today, and I think my red death wine hangover is partially to blame. The students are back in town, so I feel like my town has been taken over, and I am in a lousy mood. On a positive note, my grocery store started carrying San Pellegrino, which is a plus. I will post more tomorrow.
I have a couple more Saudi links to post, but I will get them tomorrow. I am well into a great bottle of wine, and doubt I will make much sense if I continue to type (although that is assuming that I normally make any sense). I am not much of a wine connoisseur. Since I do not even drink white wines, wine labeling for me breaks down into good and bad, and even then I am not capable of describing the taste very well, as I do not know all of the terms used. Indeed, I still believe that brushing my teeth counts as ‘cleansing my palate.’
At any rate, the most important thing about a bottle of wine to me is how it makes me feel, and I must say that 3 glasses of Black Opal Cabernet (an exceptionally inexpensive Australian wine) scores high marks on thaT account. It doesn’t have a hideously bitter aftertaste that many Cabernet’s have, and I look forward to the next sip. The subsequent ‘buzz’ is light, and my cheeks and knees are numb. There you have it. Wine tasting by ogres. Go get some Black Opal and try it yourself.
I would also like to thank Gregory Hlatky for adding me to his link list. Please check out his site, A Dog’s Life, if you have time.
A lot of column inches from the Economist, and it appears that the Bush Administration is still only being tarred with guilt by association.
If the Bush Administration or members in it did do anything for Enron, despite reports that they turned them down when asked for help (unlike Clinton officials), they should immediately be canned and Bush et al. should suffer the repercussions. However, it just apears right now that there is no there there.
