- Hey, guess what? Iran has another nuclear facility. Under a mountain. On a military base. Also, they’re testing missiles with a 1,200-mile range. Worry not, though; we’re meeting them Thursday to discuss it. My guess is that the time for diplomatic engagement is over, and the time for more diplomatic engagement is beginning. Dear fanatical, apocalyptic regime pursuing Armageddon: we are about to speak very forcefully to you about this! (In these delicate matters, you stay with what works.)
- Our esteemed president wants longer school days, as well as longer school years. Presumably this will mean even more time for spending tax dollars to teach fawning, adulatory song and dance routines to young children who lack critical thinking skills.
- It seems that Guantanamo isn’t going to close on Obama’s timetable! Film at effin’ eleven! But hey, know what? That’s Bush’s fault, too.
- No worries, though. It’s all good. Obama’s got time to jet off to Copenhagen to “pitch” Chicago for the 2016 Olympics (and as Ramesh Ponnuru pointed out, does anyone actually think he’d be going if it weren’t already decided?). On another note, is there enough money on the planet for all of the greasing and kicking back that’s going to have to be done for an Olympics in Chicago? We may be facing a corruption vortex that swallows the universe here. Hey, maybe we can get ACORN to sell tickets!
Happy Monday to you. Still knuckled down and checking off the days to the midterms, here. How about you?
