The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition


The Arab psyche seems to require a shadowy and powerful enemy; one that is always in their consciousness,and one that can never be beaten. But this is stupidity on a grand scale from Assad, who could simply ignore Israel and focus on his murderous rampage through his own country. Israel would promptly ignore him (but not his Iranian masters and their Hezbollah proxies) and he wouldn't lose planes and troops and anti-aircraft batteries to Israeli fire. But his minions must be kept in a state of perpetual hysteria, and what better tool than the Zionist/Joo enemy?

The Saudis seem to be moderating their Joo-hate, mostly because they are more afraid of Iran than of Israel. Whether that will last is unknowable, but it certainly makes sense. But Syria is stuck. They are firmly in the grip of the mad Mullahs, and simply have no way out of their predicament, assuming that they even want out. All Assad wants is to remain in power, and his deal with the devil will accomplish that, with the slight downside of being an Iranian and, to a lesser extent, Russian puppet for the rest of his days.


Already blaming the Republicans and she hasn't even been elected yet.


I get a huge kick out of bench-clearing brawls in baseball. So few of these guys know how to throw a punch, probably because all they have done athletically is baseball. But the aesthetics of throwing high and in are just perfect. Before the DH it was a self-regulating issue, but even now it works fairly well.
