Foreign Intelligence Brief #370: The Details On The US Mission To Kill Osama Bin Laden

by Andrew Morrison | Osama bin Laden is dead, apparently double-tapped on the left side of his face yesterday by a US Navy SEAL (my money’s on Demi Moore). What does the death of one man do except piss his

Oh, I Get It…For A Second There I Thought You’d Gone Bonkers!

This morning’s announcement that US President Barack Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize made hot coffee come out of my nose. Appreciate his efforts though I most certainly do, the guy just hasn’t accomplished all that much to warrant

Obama Inspires Change At Kelowna Restaurant

Obama Inspires Change At Kelowna Restaurant

This may well be the oddest restaurant press release that has ever crossed our Okanagan desk. It is well written yet totally bizarre, and easily breaks through “the clutter” like a hot knife through foie gras. Chef Rod Butters, the

The Lame Presidency of Dubya In 8 Minutes

UPDATED: It’s 4:51am on Tuesday morning. History is stupid early. I started blogging shortly after George Bush was inaugurated eight years ago this Tuesday. He was the reason. I kept a political site called Times New Roman and wrote about

Obama Will Have A Better Wine Cellar Than Bush

Slate’s Mike Steinberger thinks the Obamas will take the wine cellar of the White House a lot more seriously than the Bushes: With the bitter taste of Shafer-gate lingering in the mouths of many Americans, Obama has a chance to

How To Bid Adieu To The Worst Leader Ever

George Lounge is having a party on the 20th celebrating the end of the Bush Era. So are many others around the world. I’m going to do something, but it’s too important a moment in my life to plan. What

Twitter Is Totally Evil And It Must Die Now

Appointments With the huge exception of Hillary Clinton as SecState (still a choice that continues to bewilder me to no end), every hire has stoked me considerably (I even see the wisdom in Obama’s decision to have that colossal pinhead

Who Is Cooking For The Next President?

Who Is Cooking For The Next President?

Via the Daily Beast we snag a CBS News report that says “Rick Bayless, chef at Chicago’s Frontera Grill and author of cookbooks on contemporary Mexican cuisine, may be the next chef-in-chief.” The Riverfront Times has more on the Bayless

Did That Really Just Happen?

Did That Really Just Happen?

Hard to believe it’s actually over. My electoral vote prediction was 353, but it appears I was selling the guy short. After they finally call North Carolina, he should have banked 364. Indiana? New Mexico? Nevada? Virginia? Ohio? Florida? That’s

Wassup! Eight Years Later

Many of you will remember the Wassup guys from the old Budweiser commercials that were in heavy TV rotation eight years ago. Here’s what they’ve been up to… I love the disclaimer at the end that says the video is

Powell’s Artful Coup de Grace

This is the end of the beginning of the end for McCain. The end is still three weeks away. From CNN: “I think he is a transformational figure, he is a new generation coming onto the world stage, onto the

Obama Dominates In 2nd Debate

Just…wow. With the polls showing McCain now having to play catch-up in just about every battleground state, his second debate (hosted rather shittily by NBC anchor Tom Brokaw) performance didn’t do him any favours. Some have been calling it a
