Oh, For Chrissakes...

MSNBC Cuts Away From Pentagon To Paris - The Huffington Post: With obvious yelling in the background, MSNBC cut away from an interview with Colonel Rick Francona on the Defense Secretary replacing the Joint Chiefs Chairman Peter Pace, to show Paris Hilton leaving her house in West Hollywood to attend court.

Glad to see they have their priorities straight.

I am truly in despair for this country. The "resignation" of General Pace appears to be a direct consequence of his opposition to widening the war in the Middle East to include Iran. Officers who fail to toe the increasingly insane party line are being purged.

But let's not think about that. Let's follow the latest exploits of some bubble headed starlet as she weeps and wails her way to jail.

It's to have the fourth estate watching our backs.

That was the title of a page of news in (I think) the old Zap Comix from long ago.

Every issue they would print news that just made you shake your head in despair.

I've been thinking a lot about reviving it. This moment would certainly qualify.
