The Line Forms on the Left, Please"

Credit goes to Dave Pell and Electablog for coming up with a single line that Kerry `an use in the debate and on stickers:

"The American people are smarter than that."

Repeat as needed.
Pulling Back the Curtain: What a Top Reporter in Baghdad Really Thinks About the War

In an unfiltered look at the situation in Iraq from a Wall Street Journal correspondent Farnaz Fassihi, we learn, "[d]espite President Bush's rosy assessments, Iraq remains a disaster. If under Saddam it was a 'potential' threat, under the Americans it has been transformed to 'imminent and active threat,' a foreign policy failure bound to haunt the United States for decades to come."

Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Is a Picture Worth a Thousand Words?

1. Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Danny Gregory
I guess it depends on who you are and where you are.
If you're Army Corporal Charles Graner of Abu Ghraib fame, this picture is worth eight words from your boss: "You are sentenced to 24 years in prison".

If you're Donald Rumsfeld, the same picture is worth a whopping twenty-two words from your boss: "You are doing a superb job. You are a strong Secretary of Defense. And our nation owes you a debt of gratitude."

This indicates that Spc. Graner is an E-4 and earns $1991.50 per month while Sec. Rumsfeld has a much higher pay grade.

On the other hand, if you write a thousand words for the average online satirical magazine, figure on not getting paid anything. Do a watercolor for an online satirical mag and figure, again, on not getting paid anything. So, online, a picture is worth pretty much the same as a thousand words.

In short, I'd much rather have a picture in Yankee Pot Roast than a long sentence in the stockade.

Your pal,
