Evening news. (AKA why 3 short posts instead of 1 long one...

President Bunnypants Bush needs to learn to quit saying what he really means (1, 2), and more of what he want people to believe. C'mon, that's how you get good at propaganda.
See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.
At least he's finally being straight with us.

Limbaugh accuses Maryland of fascism (what is fascism? why is the left not fascist? why is the far right a tighter fit for fascism? read this) for passing legislation that would require Wal-Mart to pay its fair share of Medicaid. It was vetoed by Maryland's republican governor. He then accuses them of socialism (a system of economics and government diametrically opposed to fascism).

Fascism would be forcing the taxpayers of Maryland to subsidize Wal-Mart's low wages. The low wages and lack of affordable employee health care force employees to rely on government assistance. The government forces the citizen down to support a massive business. That sounds like corporatism/fascism to me.

Attytood has a good post on how al-Zarqawi regrew his leg (replaced in Saddam era Iraq), switched accents, and is now maybe/maybe not wounded. Hope he is. Hope he's out of the picture. But killing him won't fix Iraq. The only way to "fix" Iraq will be to get the water and electricity back on, get crime to go down, let them form their own government without our meddling, and leave. If we have to keep a garrison there, out of the way and out of sight would be best.

And for fun, space aliens will come to earth between June 1 and July 15. From Newshounds,
Last night's guest during the third hour of Alan Colmes' radio show last night was Prophet Yahweh (his legal name, he said). Mr. Yahweh claims to have discovered that he has the ability to summon "on my cue" objects from space. Now he is "being told to" share this with the rest of the world. Sometime between June 1 and July 15, a spaceship is "going to descend and sit up over Las Vegas for about a day and a half" in order to prove to the media "once and for all the answer to the question, 'are we alone in the universe?'"
Don't miss the press release!

Book your Vegas trip now, see a show or two, play a couple hands of poker and meet the aliens. Of course, the aliens are optional since Mr. Yahweh will probably just claim that a passing jet during the night are his friends. Most of the time, cults like this make grand pronouncements, nothing happens, they make a claim about how it is the fault of non-believers. You would think this would ruin the cult game for them, but it often makes their followers believe even more.
