bush for re-election part 2....
best believe that dubya and his rove polito-bot will use the pvt. lynch story to full dramatic effect come campaign time. too bad, though, that it turns out the story isn't quite like the pentagon wanted us to believe.
the washington post sent reports to nasiriyah to re-report the story and they came up with this:

"The Special Operations unit's full-scale rescue of the private, while justified given the uncertainty confronting U.S. forces as they entered the compound, ultimately was proven unnecessary. Iraqi combatants had left the hospital almost a day earlier, leaving Lynch in the hands of doctors and nurses who said they were eager to turn her over to Americans.

Neither the Pentagon nor the White House publicly dispelled the more romanticized initial version of her capture, helping to foster the myth surrounding Lynch and fuel accusations that the Bush administration stage-managed parts of Lynch's story."

bush for re-election part 1.....
apparently the karl rove propaganda machine has performed even better in recent months than anyone knew. the machine has a full third of americans convinced that we've ALREADY found weapons of mass distruction in Iraq. read all the scary details here. warning: it doesn't paint a pretty picture of americans.

beer of the week...
italy isn't known for its beers, but Moretti La Rossa is a real good one. it's a double bock-style beer in the german style. so you'll get a dark, crisp lager beer. the flavor is rich and nutty. it goes well with italian food, too. i saw it recently at the macaroni grille and in liquor stores. definitely worth a try.

impeach the fcc...
sorry the pub has been closed lately. the owner hasn't had much time for bartending, but i'm back now.
anway...the fcc voted to stick it to the american people this week. we just got prison raped by rupert the mad australian and assorted other shady media moguls (with the exception of the fair-minded barry diller and ted turner). michael powell (son of colon) exhibited his love of democracy by treating 750,000 emailed protest letters to the fcc like they were spam advertisements for penis elargements.
tom shales, the washington post movie critic (and author of the great saturday night live book "Live from New York"), took his shots at the moronic decision to allow cross-ownership by media companies in a single market.
