Beyond shamelessness I’m on the road; thus the lack of posts. But I may well have some today and/or tomorrow, if I can get a moment.

Meanwhile, not to be repetitive, but isn’t this charming? Yes, it’s the Arab News, “Saudi Arabia’s First English Language Daily,” repeating the chestnut about how Benjamin Franklin warned America against admitting the perfidious Jews. “In every land the Jews have settled, they have depressed the moral level and lowered the degree of commercial honesty…I warn you gentlemen, that if you do not exclude the Jews forever, your children and your children92s children will curse you from their graves,” Franklin most certainly did not say, contrary to this Nazi-authored lie being recycled by our friends the Saudis.

It’s notable this this didn’t require the translation or publicity services of MEMRI. This is in one of Saudi Arabia’s English-language publications, on the web for the world to see. (I can’t imagine that I need to explain at this late date that nothing gets published in Saudi Arabia without government approval.)

Dick Cheney met respectfully with these guys just last week. The Arab world calls them leaders. Not to put too fine a point on it, but: fuck them all. [09:39 AM]
