I have concluded that the single funniest thing on the Internets these days is fafblog, which is a series of postings by fafnir, giblets and medium lobster. It's a bit of an acquired taste, as all three have a very distinct and peculiar style of writing, but "Sinners In The Hands of an Angry President" is one of the funniest things I've read in a while -- perhaps because I've been engaged in so much theological debate lately. A close second is the next post, which compares Alberto Gonzales to a baked potato and finds him wanting.

Oh, and from our "where are they now" file, do you remember that there was something about "weapons of mass destruction" in the news a long way back? Something about how Iraq had WMDs that could be launched against Americans in a matter of minutes? And then, when they weren't right where Rumsfeld said they would be, our Lord and President told us to be patient and to let the inspectors do their work?


Yeah, me neither.

That's why I was surprised to read this article in the Washington Post, which explains that the inspectors officially gave up shortly before Christmas. They weren't there -- or if they were there, they've been long since stolen by the insurgents. And "the possibility is small" that there's any truth to the Administration theory (which I keep hearing from folks in the office) that they were secreted into Syria just before the invasion.

Guess there's nothing newsworthy there.
