A penny for the guy(s)?

Via Roger Ailes I see that there is no shortage of broke-ass Republicans simultaneously preaching self-reliance and asking for hand-outs. It seems that few have chipped in. Is it possible that Scaife passed on and nobody heard about it?

Noam Chomsky wasn’t nominated Defense Secretary nor have any immediate plans been drawn up for mandatory toddler sex education so the skeleton crew at NRO are completely lost in the woods. Count them amongst the most disappointed that Obama wasn’t The Most Librul Dimmocrat EVAR!!!.

No mention of our complicity in either massacre:

BAGHDAD (AP) — Saddam Hussein’s notorious cousin “Chemical Ali” Hassan al-Majid received a second death sentence Tuesday — this time for crushing a Shiite uprising in the wake of Iraq’s defeat in the 1991 Gulf War.

Al-Majid, once among the most feared members of Saddam’s regime, muttered “thanks be to God” as chief judge Mohammed Oreibi al-Khalifa declared him guilty and imposed the sentence at the end of the trial, which began in August 2007.

Al-Majid already faces the gallows after being convicted last year for his role in the killing of tens of thousands of Kurds in a crackdown in the late 1980s — in which chemical weapons were used against civilians. But legal wrangling has delayed that execution.

A criminal, yes, but what about his enablers?
