“I'm afraid that if we look far into the distant future there will be not Israel, as it will be subsumed by the Palestinians and their Muslim neighbors while we will basically helplessly watch. Time is on their side. As things are going we will only get weaker and weaker, and it won't be worth it to actively send our boys back to fight and support Israel.”

“I was one of the people (out of many thousands no doubt) who posted here several times last Spring and Summer that MSNBC should give Rachel Maddow her own show. I posted that a few times here and elsewhere, as I'm sure thousands of others did. And now, who else should stand in for Rachel but you.
It's perfect either way.

Wonderful that Keith on a Thursday wanted to make sure that Rachel would be present the next day for what we did not know: turned out to be the announcement of her show. And here we are, you appearing as a guest on Friday, and now you host on Monday. Just great !”

“You worry too much. Have you ever just let the polls go and watch the betting odds on Intrade?
With the exception of the 1916 election, betting pools have not been wrong in predicting winning candidates. In 2004 and 2006, for example, Intrade accurately predicted the election, right down to who won in each state.

That's pretty convincing to me. Obama cannot lose unless there's martial law, or some such right wing action.

“As many of us have been blogging here and elsewhere for many months, the new Rachel Maddow Show is a wonderful cause for celebration. She and Keith have been the lightest, brightest, and heaviest commentators on MSNBC.

Thanks should go to Keith Olbermann. Congratulations should go to MSNBC. A warm welcome for Ms Maddow to enter our homes goes to Rachel Maddow.

“This is a decades old story. Why headlines now?

from Wikipedia, for example:

Civic-minded, she volunteered with the American Red Cross and, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) after being turned down by the United States Navy for being too tall.

She started out at OSS Headquarters in Washington, working directly for General William J. Donovan, the leader of OSS. Working as a research assistant in the Secret Intelligence division, Julia typed up thousands of names on white note cards used to keep track of officers.

For a year, she worked at the OSS Emergency Sea Rescue Equipment Section in Washington, D.C., where she was a file clerk and also helped in the development of a shark repellent to ensure that sharks would not explode ordnance targeting German U-boats. In 1944 she was posted to Kandy, Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), where she met her future husband, a high-ranking OSS cartographer, and later to China, where she received the Emblem of Meritorious Civilian Service as head of the Registry of the OSS Secretariat.”

AnnoyedCanuck on Aug 14, 2008 at 11:30:48

“So she wasn't a spy, she was more of a clerk for spies.

An unusually tall woman with a distinctive, plummy voice could hardly have been first choice to work undercover in places like China and Sri Lanka.”

WSJ Columnist: Is McCain Losing It?

“When McCain starts running subliminally racist ads, he's got to be losing it.

I remember 50 years ago, walking through Greenwich Village during a trip to New York and watched stunned as I saw a black man walking casually down the street with his arms around the shoulders of a blond woman. Having been brought up in Maryland, that scene was shocking to me. Now that I'm 70 and lived the rest of my life on the Left Coast, I'm fortunate that I am a much more understanding person. Too bad, many are still stuck where I was. And the McCain campaign wants to play on their "fears."

Here’s my take on the McCain “celebrity” ad against Obama, which is subliminally racist . . .

The image of two white blond bimbos with a black man – that’s the subliminal racist pitch.

Instead of using Britney Spears and Paris Hilton,
WHAT ABOUT USING

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ?

Matt Damon and George Clooney ?

Tom Cruise and Johnny Depp ?

Tiger Woods and David Beckham ?

Tony Blair and Nicolas Sakozy ?

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Donald Trump ?

Oprah Winfrey and Hilary Clinton ?

Arguably, all of these are more famous world celebrities than Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.

“Great catch, Bill Press. I remember that when I walked through Greenwich Village 50 years ago in a visit to New York, I was actually shocked to see a black man walk with his arms around a white woman. I think it must have had something to do with racism on my part, but now, at 70, I'm glad I'm over it.

Many people are not. It's a shame.”

“True, Min Yee. We shouldn't have to spend money on The Washington Post to be told that we don't know anything about Barack Obama. We have Joe Scarborough, David Gregory and Pat Buchanan for that sort of thing at the flick of our remotes.”
