It's Just Crazy Enough To Work

Kos writes that the administration's seemingly bi-weekly claims to have killed or captured Al Qeda's #2 are faulty, because they can't all be the #2 guy. But here's the thing: What if that's been the plan all along? Every couple of weeks, they identify the top deputy in Al Qeda, take him out, and wait until the new guy takes over. Give him some time to get used to the bigger cubicle, hang some pics on the corkboard, etc. Just when he's getting used to the free skybox tickets at the soccer stadium, we (the Coalition of the Willing) zap him! Eventually, there's going to be no one left to take the gig, and then they go git bin Laden. I mean, the guy's practically moving in slo-mo at this point, dragging a big-ass kidney dialysis machine around the mountains of Pakistan, right? It's diabolical, and inspired. Kos really needs to broaden his thinking and start hearting the War on Terror.

Going Underground

So I've been asked to participate in the 2005 New York Underground Comedy Festival. On Thursday, October 6, I'll be at Connies Restaurant in Derby, CT. That's right, I'm so underground, I'll be in a different state entirely. I'm pretty happy about it though, seeing as I haven't had much going on, comedy-wise, lately. If you're in the area, stop by and say hello.

No Wait, Is THIS For Real?!?

Karl Rove is in charge of the reconstruction of New Orleans?!?

Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?

Irony is over. Out Of Touch is the new black.

CoveRAGE

I agree with Rogers, in that I can't even begin to provide any kind of competent coverage of the Gulf Coast hurricane aftermath, certainly not as good as others have. Kos recommends Atrios as required reading today. I could say the same about Kos.
You know, the more I read, the more pissed off I get about this whole situation, and how preventable it was.

Where To Turn

There's a pretty good list of organizations providing help for Katrina victims here (link from Kevin Drum). Of course, there are also plenty of bottom-feeders out there who have already launched scam websites looking to steal your money, so approach any of those emails in your inbox with caution. The magnitude of this tragedy is going to take a while to fully sink in, I think. And the news doesn't seem to get any better as time goes on. Hopefully, that will change soon.

Knee-Jerk Defined

Sean Hannity should be scrubbing toilets somewhere. I mean it, the guy has more qualifications to push a broom than he does to comment on the events of the day. Why people take seriously a guy who does things like this is completely baffling to me. Fox News would be better served plucking some kid out of the Talk Radio class at Connecticut School of Broadcasting and giving them a show than keeping a dope like Hannity on the air.
