Shaking an infant to death has been legalised by a judge in Britain. But before you pack up your passport and your kids and head to yee olde London, it's only if you're a Muslim immigrant running a "Me ignorant and me don't know no better" defence. Only a matter of time before Britain's hit with the wave of rapes and "honour" killings that are all the rage in the rest of Europe. (h/t Michelle Malkin)
After months of haggling a "Unity" government has been formed in Iraq. All I can say is that it's taken them an inordinately long time to perform a relatively simple task. They're getting so much like a western democracy, it makes me kinda proud.
If you can't keep a secret, you shouldn't work for the CIA. A CIA officer named Mary McCarthy has been canned from the Company for leaking like seive under Niagara Falls. Reports say that she's a past supporter of the John Kerry campaign, but don't question the patriotism of Democrats. They endanger American operations and lives out of love of country, not a twisted desire for power at all costs, even liberty.
Oh, so it wasn't a "slam dunk." Why do people still listen to bitter ex-CIA spooks anymore? The organisation's run more like the Virginia branch of the Daily Kos than a serious intelligence agency. Maybe if the CIA's agents did their jobs instead of spending time campaigning for the Democrats, 9/11 wouldn't have happened?
On a serious note...
4 Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan. Sorry, no joke with this one. Support the troops.
