"Pay close attention to that man behind the curtain!"

Get back to work!

Ah! It's good to be back from my Lunar New Year vacation and see that nothing in my apartment had been stolen by the lowlife scum in my building (who don't mind stealing the emergency lights when they haven't paid their electric bills). Also after 3 nights and 4 days of running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to see all the sights, going back to work will be sort of a welcome change.

In the meantime, a lot has been happening. Howard Dean frenzily shrieked, but it took days for anybody to notice the story behind the story. David Kay -- while quitting his job -- told us (despite the spin) that there were, in fact, no WMD (which according to AlterNet, "Impeaches Bush") -- just weapons of mass destruction program-related activities, as Bush so tongue-twistingly described it -- and South Knox Bubba happily placed many warmongers' feet directly and firmly in their mouths.

In the upper reaches of the Blogosphere, Atrios was attacked by Andrew Sullivan (who simultaneously claimed that because Atrios uses a pseudonym he can't be attacked) for -- get this -- not being able to come up with a recent example (off the top of his head during a radio appearance on the Blogging of the President: 2004) of criticizing the left. Andrew Sullivan is a stunning example of irony in vivo.

French president Jacques Chirac -- who correctly opposed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq -- is also waxing horribly ironic with his warning to Taiwan about its plans to hold a defensive referendum while under the constant threat of nearly 500 Chinese missiles aimed in its direction.

The Hutton Inquiry report on the investigation into the death of Dr. David Kelly is scheduled to be out this afternoon. I'm dying to hear what the warmongers' reactions to that will be! (You might guess that I think I know how it will turn out. I don't, but I'm pretty confident that doubts will be cast on Dr. Kelly's "suicide," Andrew Gilligan will receive a mild chastising for poor record-keeping (while being cleared of any wrongdoing), and Tony Blair and Geoff Hoon will both get the red-ass!)

Lastly, I've just added a "search this blog" function (via Google) down at the bottom to the sidebar of the page and an syndication feed, whatever that is. Give 'em both a whirl.
