Look Who's (Not) Talking

Remember the rhetoric prior to and immediately following North Korea's nuclear test? How the Bush Administration insisted North Korea return to the six-party talks?

Apparently, that's not good enough.

Of course, Ms. Mushroom Cloud herself, Condoleezza Rice, says, "Nobody accepts that they're a nuclear power."

And, clearly, nobody in the White House has figured out that every time you tell Kim Jung-Il no, he goes and does it anyway. Kind of like the present occupant of the Oval Office.

If you recall, there was speculation about the decision to move the USS Eisenhower carrier group to the Gulf to conduct military exercises. If the intent was to demonstrate allied might (Great Britain and France also participated in the exercise), it failed.

Iran's response was to demonstrate their own capabilities by test-firing dozens of missiles, including the Shahab-3, which is capable of reaching Israel.

A school bus driver in Washington has filed a union grievance to reclaim her job after being fired for flipping off President Bush.

The driver, whose bus came alongside a motorcade including Congressman Dave Reichert and President Bush, offered the Chief Executive a middle-finger salute.

She was fired. Not because she gave Mr. Bush the finger, but because she did it in plain view of the kiddies, according to the district.

Of course, neither the children or the parents brought the matter to the attention of the district; they learned from other bus drivers. (A call from the Congressman came after the driver had been fired.)
