Tom Brokaw Helpfully Corrects Prime Minister Alawi

You know, there's a great amount of psychological import in having an Iraqi leader I can call Prime Minister. We're going to feel the effects of this more and more as we go. As others have pointed out, from here on out, Al Jazeera won't be able to run footage of Paul Bremer issuing orders; all the orders will be issued by Alawi, an Iraqi, speaking his native Arabic.

But anyway.

The MRC catches Brokaw "correcting" the Prime Minister of Iraq on Saddam's Al Qaeda ties (first item). Eh, what would Prime Minister Alawi know. He's just Prime Minister of Iraq and all, and just a man who's been opposing Saddam for 30 years, while Brokaw and his buddies at CNN were coddling him.

Check out the last item, too. Once upon a time I was rooting for Dave Letterman to get the Tonight Show slot; and then I rooted for him to trounce Leno. No more.

He stopped being funny around five years ago, at least. Actually, some say he stopped being funny during the whole NBC dispute in 1991-1992 or so. And now he's also a partisan shill in addition to being unfunny.

I'd suggest boycotting him, except it seems that most people already aren't watching him for non-political reasons.

As a country song (I think) says, Dave, when that Nielsen box ain't pinging, that's me not watching.
