Paul Rieckhoff Is Cool

My previous post mentions Paul Rieckhoff where it should probably mention Scott Ritter. I had originally misattributed that statement here, though I made the change before posting at Smirking Chimp. Nonetheless, Rieckhoff saw his name here at the KIAV and e-mailed me, offering a signed copy of his book, Chasing Ghosts: Failures and Facades in Iraq: A Soldier’s Perspective.

I wrote back to Paul and told him I thought my reference to him was in error. He LOL’d and said he’d send it anyway. As anyone who has heard him appear on radio and/or the television machine might suspect: Paul Rieckhoff is cool.

See what he’s up to at the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America. Or, just go buy his book.

And I’m A Genius, Genius

You’ve probably heard by now that David Kuo, an evangelical Christian conservative and former White House Staffer, has written a book that claims that the Bush administration was disingenuous and indeed downright dismissive of its evangelical supporters.

How about a big Nelson Muntz-style cheer for my friends in evangelical circles? Ha-ha.

You, fucktards, have apparently been hornschwaggled like the rest of America. I mean, who could have imagined when George W. Bush ascended to the throne promising something called the “White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives,” that it might conceivably be nothing more than a cynical tactic? for the President and his CREEP? Who could have imagined that this President uses religion for nothing but political gain, that he semaphores to his base over the rest of our heads and then calls them “ridiculous” “boorish” “nuts” in private?

This President? Conceited, ruthless, and completely callous? No. Way.

I cannot wait to get my paws on this book.
