Battle Not With Monsters...

So...what's the logical thing to do about Iran given what's happened in the last six years?

Bomb it, of course.

I have been doing my best to ignore this whole discussion (admittedly, my best is pretty mediocre)...but once Eric Alterman comes out and says it, I think you can bet money. He discusses it (and provides several well supported links) here.

& here, Anne Applebaum uses a discussion of former East German spy master Markus Wolf to explain (in mostly small words if what's left of the ruling junta is reading) why when one battles with monsters, one should proceed cautiously.

When you're older, you're going to be blinded by an industrial accident. This will be a terrible tragedy. Luckily for you, they will have artificial eyes by then--and cheap ones too, Net Zero will be involved. Unlucky for you, there will be a constant crawl of ads across the bottom of your field of vision. For now, is it enough you can see Colonel Sanders from space?

From Godlike Productions (via Wonkette), this bit from yesterday is the funniest thing I've seen in weeks. First of all - "EVERYBODY HATES YOU."
