Around the blogroll and elsewhere

If you read nothing else today, go to Talk to Action and read about the tenure of Wade Horn, who resigned yesterday as Assistant Secretary of Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services yesterday, and effective this weekend. Horn is a patriarchal advocate of the first order, and all we can say is "Don't let the door hit you on the way out."

If American Jewish neocons think that the all-but-certain attack that Bush is planning against Iran for sometime between April 6 and September (depending on what you read) is good for Israel, and what Israel wants, guess again. Cernig has more from Ha'aretz and other sources.

I know that Knut has been hogging all the cuteness factor lately, but let's not forget Jackson Jones, #25 on our Brilliant of 2006 list, who is already only 2-1/2 months away from his first birthday. Jackson's proud papa has posted new photos of Superboy.

From the "Yeah, nice fucking guy" file, and TPM Café;, we have John McCain, who has Richard Nixon's counter-of-Jews as his national finance co-chair.

Muriel Kane at At Largely comments on an ABC News report that the Bush Administration is funding yet another terrorist group, under the "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" doctrine.

Spocko wants to know what the FDA knew and when they knew it about tainted wheat gluten from China.

While Ha'aretz may be trying to keep some sanity in the Israel/US policy toward the Arab world, Jurassicpork (gotta love these screen names!) notes that the Jerusalem Post is admitting that the lunatic leading this country; you know, the guy who thinks he's God's Anointed Architect of the Rapture, is planning his Iran attack for Good Friday -- the day after tomorrow.

Does this mean I'll never finish refacing the cabinets in the kitchen? Does this mean I should have spent all that money I've been putting away for retirement?
