The Headless Smear

Glenn Greenwald and The Headless McCain Smear...

Surge to Nowhere: WP's Andrew J. Bacevich

The Washington Post's Andrew J. Bacevich tells us to "Look beyond the spin, the wishful thinking, the intellectual bullying and the myth-making..." of the surge's portrayal in the media. Not that it should surprise you, but this real reporter's analysis will chill your victory party: Surge to Nowhere.

Tip of the Hat: Only Sayin'

If you want to escape the feverish pace of the election horse race and take a little time to sit and read some funny, thoughtful, and well-written commentary on our American Culture, look no further than Only Sayin'. Our Cowardice-Based Foreign Policy is an essay tackling just that in which Powder Monkey begins to sketch some intriguing ideas about American Imperialism. Also, Republicans Are Chickens is an open letter to Senator Obama begging him to cut to the chase. Finally, digging into the archives, I know George Bush shows us that we ALL know George Bush, and we hate that sonofabitch.

I'm still making my way through the archives when I have the time and brainpower, but it's definitely worth your time to check some of these pieces out.

Thanks to everyone at Only Sayin' for doing your thing.
