* this via miguel:
"China and Turkey have developed and marketed an advanced rocket."
I wonder who''ll profit from it.

* yglesias:
"One is used to hearing Bush say things that aren't true. He appears, however, from the look on his face and from the baffling nature of the untruths he uttered, to have lapsed from dishonesty into confusion. (Sheer boredom may have sent him tumbling to new depths of ignorance.)... We have, meanwhile, policies that match the intellectual cesspool of the president's rhetoric."

* apparently the wingnuts are getting their talkingpoints cross-wired. i just saw some bimbo argue that it was ok to force the pregnancy of a 12-year-old rape victim because you can't argue that the govt should keep its hands off your body and be for universal healthcare. or something.

* speaking of unhinged, malkin on oreilly - talking about qana as manufactured outraged. and speaking of manufactured outrage, here's malkin quoting someone on the hamsher/blackface story:
"Watching the first half-hour of the morning news shows on the broadcast networks today yielded no mention of the incident."
* scheer:
"Those who mindlessly support Israel, right or wrong, from President Bush on through the cheerleaders in Congress and the media, betray the security of the Jewish state. They are enablers who have encouraged Israel’s dependency on the drug of militarism as a false escape from the difficult accommodations needed to bring peace to the Middle East."
