Rumsfeld, ummm, mis-spoke about shoot downDuring Secretary Rumsfeld's recent "see how much I care" trip to Iraq, he mentioned that on Sept 11, 2001, United Airlines Flight 93 had been "shot down" over Pennsylvania. This has fueled continuing speculation over whether the plane crashed because of actions inside the cockpit, or because it had been shot down, perhaps by U.S. military planes. Today, the Pentagon is insisting that Mr. Rumsfeld misspoke.

Coulter to Islam: See what you're missing?At first I thought this was a joke, but then I was reminded: We don't need to invent things to mock Ann Coulter. She provides them herself. From the front page of today's edition of her web site:
To The People Of Islam:
Just think: If we'd invaded your countries, killed your leaders and converted you to Christianity YOU'D ALL BE OPENING CHRISTMAS PRESENTS RIGHT ABOUT NOW!
That's right, because nothing expresses Christian Values in the same way as invasion, killing, and forced religious conversion.
