Wait, what's that feeling? No, it can't be.

Respect for Robert Fisk, the first Internet verb I learned.

Good for him. His reporting has been incredible and is important, especially coming from someone definitely not a neo-con.

he's still a douche bag.

--His reporting has been incredible--

There's an inadvertant truth for ya.

"Incredible douche bag." I have nothing to add.

Well, I had heard that Iran had been throwing out all reporters who were not part of the Iranian state media. Now I believe it.

You don't suppose Mr Fisk is and always has been on the Wahabi payroll?

Jane

He's on someone's payroll if he is still there. The Iranians don't fool around.

clarice

Exactly.

Reportedly tomorrow will bring a crackdown on the protesters.

Barry may face a real problem if there is a massacre.
This isn't China in 1989. We have just liberated and democratized one country on the west and, somewhat less successfully, one on the north of Iran. And our navy sits just off shore.
If there's a massacre and he votes "present" with some mealy mouthed, even handed pabulum while another Tiananmen Square is going on, one that we could have some influence over, he runs a risk of going down Carter's "More Mush From the Wimp" (greatest headline ever) road.

Holy Turquoise, Oh Batman, See the Sign.

Don't mess with Meshad.

Here's C. Hitchens' take on matters. (From Kudlow earlier tonight-LUN)

He feels that we're dealing with 1905 instead 0f 1917--but that the Revolution has indeed begun.

Obama is such a wimp. I am so deeply ashamed that the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is not supporting those shedding blood fighting for freedom from totalitarianism.

"You don't suppose Mr Fisk is and always has been on the Wahabi payroll?"

Why would they pay for something they can get for free?

Hmmm. Maybe the regime saw the low votes for Ajad and thought there was no way that could be real, since they existed in a bubble, and thought it was fraud against their Ajad, so they thought they'd do some fraud of their own back.

I would think they did first made some attempts to count the votes accurately, because no use to commit fraud if your guy actually won, but once they saw pattern of low Ajad votes merging, they figured if you are going to cheat, you might as well cheat big, it shows attitude. Kind of a Baghdad Bob, 'big lies are better lies' attitude that must be common in the M.E.

Parking Lot

CH is a very smart man but in some ways he is very stupid.
