Senate Committee On Pre-War Inteligence Releases Shock Report: Intel Correctly Predicted That Invading State Riven By Sectarian Hatred *Could* Result In Intercine Violence

Your [redacted] billion dollar intelligence community at work.

Goldstein makes a couple of key points:

1) This precise-same intelligence was also provided to all the Congressmen who voted for the war (and that minority that voted against it). If Bush is to be charged with not taking this kinda-maybe "prediction" seriously enough -- why, exactly, should Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, and John Kerry be excused for their similar cavalier attitudes?

2) The intelligence community also stated, much more conclusively, that Saddam Hussein had an active WMD program and the capability of developing nuclear weapons within a decade or less. So the current crop of critics are simultaneously charging that Bush should have ignored the former finding while taking very "seriously" the kinda-obvious and not-terribly-firm "prediction" about possible ethnic mayhem in Iraq.

He also makes a third point:

3) Joy Behar is a fucking moron.

Let's face facts -- there are a lot of funny female comedians. And by "a lot," I mean "a handful." They're genuinely funny and deserve all the accolades they receive. (In the case of Maria Bamford, they deserve the accolades they have yet to receive.)

But then there are a lot of female "comics" who have never had the funny their whole life, and most likely wouldn't even recognize the funny if it sat on their faces and farted out the theme from Magnificent Seven. They are affirmative-action comics, unfunny people whose career is owed to the simple embarrassment of their being so few very funny female comics.

No wonder Behar and Rosie get along so well. They've both come up through the same we-need-a-woman-in-this-set so-we'll-stick-her-in-the-middle-during-waitress-service
comedy ranks.
