News Roundup – Iraq, Sarah Palin, Delta

I hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas. (A lot, but not all, of the following comes from Steve Benen.)

Iraq: “At least 34 people were killed in three bombings in Christian areas of Baghdad on Wednesday, including a car bomb that exploded as worshippers were leaving a Christmas service, Iraqi police and medics said. Elsewhere in Iraq, at least 10 people were killed in three attacks that targeted police and Shi’ite pilgrims, police said.”
* In related news, the U.S. is “quietly rushing dozens of Hellfire missiles and low-tech surveillance drones to Iraq to help government forces combat an explosion of violence by a Qaeda-backed insurgency that is gaining territory in both western Iraq and neighboring Syria.”
* One of the truly great things that I have read lately has to do with Sarah Palin.  Shortly after this Duck Dynasty nonsense blew up, Fox News trotted out former governor Palin to defend liberty or something like that. When pressed by “hard hitting” Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren, Sarah Palin responded, “I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it.” Priceless!!!
* Delta Air LInes sold round-trip tickets for $25. Some flights were only $5. Wow!! now that’s some “glitch” as the company spokesperson described it.
* The FBI thought that Jimmy Stewart’s holiday classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life” was some communist propaganda movie.
Egyptian divisions grow more complex: “The Egyptian government intensified its crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood on Wednesday, formally listing the group as a terrorist organization after accusing it of carrying out a suicide bomb attack on a police station that killed 16 people.” (more…)

Duck Dynasty – Let’s take to the Streets!

So, old Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty ran his mouth while a reporter from GQ was sitting in front of him. He said typical conservative nonsense – “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.” Look, Phil, you are a big TV star. He is huge. I have never watched a single episode of Duck Dynasty, but I have heard of the show. I did my internship in Monroe, Louisiana and I know tons of guys just like Phil. I can recognize the guys. I have seen Duck Dynasty merchandise everywhere – from Dallas to Miami to West Virginia. (more…)
