Is She Stupid, Or Just Dumb?

Harper Collins' Regan explains why she published OJ's book.
Publishing maverick Judith Regan issued a statement Thursday night, calling her most-famous author a "killer" and acknowledging that she set up O.J. Simpson in a bid to get a confession out of him on behalf of battered women everywhere — herself among them.

Regan, Harper Collins' enfant terrible, is being widely vilified for publishing what is being touted as a "fictional" confession to the real murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

The fictional confession is given in Simpson's forthcoming new book, "If I Did It."

Regan now says that she was physically abused by her husband and other men. She says the interview she did with Simpson was an attempt at personal justice and "closure" in her own life.


She did it to make a buck. She knew the masses would eat this book up like popcorn. And while you and I will swear never to buy/read this book, there are probably 20 people who will.

Now that people are jumping up and down on her with both feet, does she back-peddle. No, I was trying to get a confession. Really! Listen Marla Maples, leave murder investigation to the professionals. Go back to publishing crap books and fellating the New York Times for good book reviews.

Whether it is a cynical ploy to make money, or you actually beleive the twaddle you're spouting, you look like an idiot. Look? She is an idiot.

Ironically, I Hate Nazis

People like this make me sick
Prosecutors said the attack was racially motivated in part because the victim is Hispanic and Tuck espoused white-supremacist beliefs.

Authorities said Tuck shouted racial insults as he punched, kicked and stomped the teen for four to five hours and sodomized him with the plastic pole of a patio umbrella. Tuck and another teen later stood him against a fence and poured bleach all over him, according to investigators.

I've been reading this case off and on for a couple weeks. Now, I'm pretty much against tarring every crime with the "hate" brush, but I'd have to say this one definitely fits. Of course, the defense tried to claim that it was not a hate crime. Ignore the fact that he was wearing Nazi symbols on his clothes (hell, on his boots). Ignore the fact, according to some reports, he was shouting racial epithets while stomping.

Well, at least this Nazi shit will suffer some poetic justice. I'm sure he'll be sodomized more than once where he's going.

Color Me Shocked

But... but... he promised!
New traces of plutonium and enriched uranium — potential material for atomic warheads — have been found in a nuclear waste facility in Iran, a revelation that came Tuesday as the Iranian president boasted his country's nuclear fuel program will soon be completed.

The International Atomic Energy Agency report detailing the discovery also faulted Tehran for not cooperating with the U.N. watchdog's attempts to investigate other suspicious aspects of Iran's nuclear program.

I understand. I do. Iran's economy is so bad, Ahmadinejad is doing the Chicago Tapdance more to distract his own people than anything. He's pulling a quasi-Hitler here. Hell, he's even including antisemitism as a bonus. It's funny, while every rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth lefty is calling Bush the modern day equivalent of Hitler, we have one, bold as life, sitting in the Middle East. We can get into the irony of Iran (of the ancient Persian Empire) being the home of Aryans, later.

The only problem here is that Israel is not Czechoslovakia. While the rest of the world may replay history, bemoaning the fact that Iran is about to become a nuclear power, Israel will not sit on its ass and let things happen. They will do the same thing they did to Iraq. Any facility they suspect of weapons development will be pounded into dust. They can afford to do no less. Ahmadinejad has stated before his fervent wish to see Israel "wiped from the map".
Iranian nuclear officials say 54,000 centrifuges would produce enough enriched uranium to fuel a 1,000-megawatt reactor, such as the one being built by Russia that is near completion at the southern city of Bushehr. Experts have estimated Iran would need only 1,500 centrifuges to produce a nuclear weapon.

Tehran insists it is only seeking to generate low-enriched uranium for nuclear fuel and not the highly enriched variety needed for weapons. It also denies it is building a heavy water research reactor at Arak in order to obtain plutonium for nuclear arms, asserting it only wants to produce radioactive isotopes for medical research and treatment.

I find it hard to believe that any society that still publicly flogs female fornicators needs, or even wants, cutting edge materials for medical research. They are a beligerant, aggressive culture. They have been mostly passive-aggressive, as evidenced by their clandestine arming of Hezbollah. But now they are on the verge of creating weapons that will allow them to act confidently and in a more overt manner.

I hope the UN has learned its lesson from North Korea. Harsh sanctions are needed to stop any weapons research. But thanks to blocking efforts from Russia and China, they will most likely emerge as watered-down and ineffectual.

Gets rid of all those damn Jehovah's Witnesses, that's for sure.

Boot To The Head. Steel Toed.

Driver Charged With Killing Mom, 2 Kid
Trujillo is accused of driving a pickup through a red light in downtown Denver on Friday night at high speed,killing Becca Bingham, 39, and her two children, 4-year-old Macie and 2-year-old Garrison. Frank Bingham, 41, survived.

The collision knocked off the license plate, helping police track down the suspect.
Knocked the license plate off the truck. Unbelievable. In other stories I've read, witnesses claim the truck had to have been travelling in excess of 50 mph. And he never slowed down.

His passenger was charged as an accessory. I imagine because he did not report the incident when he had the chance.

Now, I don't know how sentences are handed down for these types of infarctions, but they better damn well be the max allowed and be consecutive (instead of the concurrent shit I see sometimes)

I would have saved this ass for the November Chippies, but believe me when I say that I have more than enough candidates for this month already. And most of them are worse than this.
