Taking arrows for us all

I don’t think I mentioned the US soldiers participating in the war on drugs on Colombia who are charged with drug smuggling. Charged by the US, of course, which says they have the protection of diplomatic immunity against the Colombian legal system.

Rep. Roy Blunt says Tom DeLay is “taking arrows for us all.” Again, it’s just as well I don’t have Photoshop, or I’d be spending the morning trying to put Tom’s hair on a picture of St. Sebastian. Or General Custer.

The Chinese government, ever eager to play the role of the petulant 3-year old who must be appeased, rolls out the deputy head of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association to complain about the president of Taiwan being allowed to go to the pope’s funeral: “The decision to let Chen Shui-bian attend has hurt the feelings of the Chinese people.”

There is a push to have John Paul named a saint as quickly as humanly heavenly possible. To that end, I present two miracles performed by his corpse:

1) The saintly corpse did not slide down. It can defy gravity!

2) Bill didn’t put his hand on Condi’s ass for an entire hour!
