Ani DiFranco just one more whore for the War Mongering Wing of the Democratic Party. What a cheap whore. If you missed it, she's singing Barack's praises. As 2011 draws to a close. Barack's war on Libya be damned. The Pakistani people killed in drone attacks be damned. The attacks on our civil liberties, the refusal to close Guantanamo -- all of it and so much more.
Ani DiFranco is a fake and she really needs to rot in hell which, I have a strong feeling, she will soon enough. That's the thing about whoring out that kind of energy, the universe has a way of slapping you back with it, usually right across the face.
New topic. At Christian Science Monitor, Dan Murphy writes:
Iraq is in political crisis, less than a week after the formal end of direct US involvement in the war there. Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has brought terrorism charges against Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashemi, is moving to oust Sunni Deputy Prime Minister Saleh Mutlaq from his position, and has threatened to take away the nine cabinet seats held by the largely Sunni Iraqiyya bloc and replace them with members of his own Shiite governing coalition.
I wish others were noting it. As C.I. documented this morning, NBC Nightly News, CBS Evening News and AbC World News all ignored the crisis again yesterday.
It really is telling to see who is covering this crisis and who is ignoring it.
For example, The Progressive? Not one damn word.
I guess that just demonstrates yet again that if you didn't keep covering Iraq, it was because you just didn't care.
While two-bit whores like Matthew Rotshschild went out of their way to whore for Barack and flee from the topic of Iraq. But those who stayed focused, like C.I.? Well she was calling out Nouri throughout the long political stalemate and calling out the White House for backing him as prime minister for a second term.
Here's C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
