That should go over well!

The Hillary and Obama big brother ads. Call it a personal prejudice, but I think Hillary fits the Big Brother image better. Something very machine-like about her. That being said, this ad does pose a very prickly question: Can a black man be Big Brother? Why would you always expect Big Brother to be white? Are the american people ready for a Black- I am sorry, of african American decent – Big Brother? Would he be called Black Big Brother, or Big Black Brother, or Triple B for short?
Ahh, the important questions the 2008 campaign stirrs up!
Only in Egypt!
Meet Sherif and Ronnie.
Just when I think the web couldn't get any dumber, something like this comes along and I find myself stand corrected!
Issandr told me of their catfight yesterday, but I didn't know it was getting this big. Hell, even Abu Kais- a lebanese shia himself- has joined the fun!
My comments section seems to be greatly messed up!
For weeks now I have been getting e-mails from people whose comments get eaten, or dissappear, or mysteriously re-appear after a day or two. And now I am seeing it myself, with almost 10 new comments on the post below that are showing in the comments section in my dashboard but not in the comment section of the post. It's all messed up.
So, dear commenters, I am really sorry. I am working on it, but I have no diea why it's acting this crazy. Once I find out I will let you know!
Reports of an Israeli massacare of egyptian POW in 1967 war thanks to an israeli documentary raises the ire of the egyptian government and media , and naturally the egyptian people as well, since, you know, Israel is involved. ("Constitutional ammendments? What constitutional ammendments? The Israelis killed our boys almost 40 years ago!") They all called for the peace treaty to be scrapped or nullified, one nasserite newspaper "Al Karamah" actually went as far as demanding the killing of the israeli ambassador in retribution. Mubarak, for his part, demanded punishment for those who committed those atrocities. Go Mubarak, defender of egyptians!
The Israelis, for their part, are confused, since the documentary doesn't show the killing of any egyptian POW's in it at all. Some started wondering whether the whole thing is a made up crisis!
And now, another Israeli TV documentary- in response to the first documentary- claims that the egyptians killed dozens, if not hundreds, unarmed Israeli POW's in the 1973 war.
I can't wait for the Israelis to start demanding the head of our ambassador on a stick and the scraping of the peace treaty with Egypt. Can you?
He influences the public, makes army personall torture detainees, makes republicans wistfully wonder about when they will have a real Jack Bauer, and all kinds of other crap! There is a whole article on it, try to follow the logic: all I got was "24 is fucking everything up in america"!
I will give it one thing: The show does make torture seem a bit normal and part of the day's (more like hour's) work. Whether or not some people can not differntiate between fact and fiction like 24, that is not the show's responsibility. Retarded people will always exist, and blaming their existance and behavior on the show they are imitating is clear and utter bullshit, otherwise we will have to cancel every drama there is on TV that may have some controversial elements in it that stupid people might imitate!
Or am I being a tad simplistic here?
The egyptian opposition, unable to do anything or stop the constitutional ammendments, are going to do what they always did: boycott the vote! Oh and they will protest it too!
Rumors are, if that doesn't work, they will start a group prayer and demand that Allah show those people justice on Judgement day! There is even talk about using some Djinn to curse them and their families and keep their daughters unmarried and turn their sons gay!
Cause, you know, that will show the NDP. Oh yes, oh yes it will!
