This represents my first posting on the new Starfire blog. Everything seems to have moved here without problem (posts, comments, dates).

This represents my first posting on the new Starfire blog. Everything seems to have moved here without problem (posts, comments, dates). I do need to go through the posts and find all images that are stored on the Typepad servers or else when I close down that account, I’m concerned those images will not be available.

While searching through tie archives for the various images, I came across one of my favorites, that I got from Peacechick Mary. It holds up. I just wish I had saved a bigger version

Speaking of images, I’d like to post the starfire image on the About page… What About page you ask? I haven’t finished working on it yet. 😉

here we go again

Matters came to a head last week when Esquire magazine published an extensive article on Fallon titled, “The Man Between War and Peace.” The article credited Fallon as being almost solely responsible for thwarting Vice President Cheney’s and President George Bush’s plans for a preemptive strike …

I find it interesting that while everybody is all abuzz about Spritzer and whatever her name is, that this curious bit of information about a significant resignation should go unnoticed.

It is no secret that Fallon was in favor of diplomacy and engagement rather than confrontation in dealing with Tehran’s nuclear issue. Once quoted as saying a war with Iran “would not happen on my watch,” the former Navy fighter pilot earned the respect of his staff and the men and women in uniform he commanded, but according to Washington insiders, he also earned a bitter enemy in Vice President Dick Cheney.

This quote is from Tehran Times, but you’ll find the same story in the NY Times.

Ooops, almost forgot… here is the Esquire article.

Question: How many members of the Bush Administration does it take to
change a light bulb?

Question: How many members of the Bush Administration does it take to change a light bulb?

Answer: TEN.

1. One to deny that a light bulb needs to be changed.

2. One to attack the patriotism of anyone who says the light bulb
needs to be changed;

3. One to blame Clinton for burning out the light bulb;

4. One to tell the nations of the world that they are either for
changing the light bulb or for eternal darkness;

5. One to give a billion dollar no-bid contract to Halliburton for a
new light bulb;

6. One to arrange a photograph of Bush, dressed as a janitor and
standing on a step ladder, under the banner “Bulb Accomplished”;

7. One administration insider to resign and in detail reveal how Bush
was literally “in the dark” the whole time;

8. Another one to viciously smear # 7;

9. One surrogate to campaign on TV and at rallies on how George Bush
has had a strong light bulb-changing policy all along;

10. And finally, one to confuse Americans about the difference between
screwing in a light bulb and screwing the country.
