A&M sightings

Had the pleasure of attending a college football game between Texas A&M and Nebraska. While there, getting a crash course in A&M tradition, I got to see the newly nominated Secretary of Defense Robert Gates (A&M's president and former CIA director during the Iran-Contra scandal) and later, former President George H.W. Bush. It was pretty surreal. To know just a wee bit of what those two men know ... holy cow!

Neocons = vampires

Justin Raimondo, over at is one of the best political thinkers and writers out there. Just check out the lead to his article "The Neocons, Undaunted" ...
You have to give the neoconservatives credit for tenacity. Any other political or ideological group saddled with their record would crawl off into the shadows to expire without fanfare. Not the neocons. Vampire-like, they rise from the crypt of Bush's "global democratic revolution," fangs extended and hungry for fresh blood. There isn't enough garlic in the world to deter them – I doubt that even a pointed stake in the heart would suffice. The War Party, it seems, is immortal – like evil itself.

Like evil itself. Brilliant!
