Get Me Re-write!

of Ann Coulter getting clobbered by CBC Fifth Estate's Bob McKeown on Canada's (non)presence in Vietnam.

Coulter: "Canada used to be one of our most loyal friends and vice-versa. I mean Canada sent troops to Vietnam - was Vietnam less containable and more of a threat than Saddam Hussein?"

McKeown interrupts: "Canada didn't send troops to Vietnam."

Coulter: "I don't think that's right."

McKeown: "Canada did not send troops to Vietnam."


Coulter: "Well. I'll get back to you on that."

McKeown tags out in script:

"Coulter never got back to us -- but for the record, like Iraq, Canada sent no troops to Vietnam."

Warner Bros. Cartoons Filmography And Title Card Gallery

This is amazing: a (complete?) visual guide to the graphic title cards from Warner Brothers animation, circa 1929 to 1964.
Anyone Need a Cup of Coffee?

My workplace chimes in with a low 19 Stores within a 5 mile radius - latest update at has 162 as the new high score (from the top of Regent’s street in London).

Play for a new high score at the Starbucks locator.

To quote the New Yorker cartoon, “Are we in this Starbucks or the one down the street?

No Nukes

From the the Independent (London, England):

THE TEAM searching for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq is ending its operation without having found proof that Saddam Hussein had stocks of chemical, biological or nuclear weapons.

It investigated numerous sites identified by US intelligence as those likely to harbour weapons of mass destruction (WMD) but has now all but accepted that it is unlikely to find any weapons. Operations are being wound up and a scaled-down unit called the Iraq Survey Group will take over.

So, after the 'free' elections can we bring the troops home? I am sure Rove has a "Mission Accomplished" banner laying about somewhere....

This direct link should result in his being charged, this time by Google instead of the SEC.
