Here's an interesting thing about the presidential race. The GOP front-runner -- Giuliani -- is closer to me in policy terms than any Republican has been for a very long time, but he's quite possibly my most-loathed candidate. Strange for me, since I usually say the policy is everything, since it affects the most people, but he's a psychotic scumbag, and with the presidency in his hands, that could affect us all. The guy operated like a fascist when all he had was the power set of a mayor. Even Bush hasn't tried to cancel an election to stay in power -- Rudy has.

Read this story. As a New Yorker, very little was new to me, but it's a great round-up of what makes this guy so scary.

Democracy only goes so far

So … an insane, illegal war with Iran looms. Being fully cognizant of the consequences of this, I believe that Bush's intentions need to be nailed down, and if we can't keep him out of Persia he needs to be impeached, or if that's not possible, forcibly removed from office. What do you do when your president is stark raving mad and wants to bring about Armageddon just so he'll have something to talk about? Discuss.

You just wait…

Has anyone realized that Bush's "give me a few more guys and we'll win this war!" plan makes a lot of sense if the extra troops he''ll be adding aren't normal troops at all, but X-Men? Take that, liberals!
BRAINS!

Fox News Channel might air two episodes of a "Daily Show"-like program with a decidedly nonliberal bent on Saturday nights in late January, with the possibility that it could become a weekly show for the channel.
Does this mean Fox News isn't already satire? Now I'm scared.

The show is being put forth by the producer of that laugh-fest "24," so it must be funny. At least it explains that show's "No really, guys, torture is totally cool!" phenomenon.
